The Jesus Who Never Lived
Biblical scholar Wayne House uncovers the various depictions of Jesus in the unorthodox communities within early Christianity, in other religions, and within Western civilization today. He shows readers that the Jesus who presented Himself in history can be correctly known only through the documents written by eyewitnesses of the Christ and by those who were disciples of those eyewitnesses, documents that were attested by the early church and became a part of the New Testament canon.
Reasons for Our Hope: An Introduction to Apologetics
In light of postmodern attacks on the value and even the legitimacy of Christianity, the necessity of an informed and articulate defense of the faith today can hardly be contested.

(2 Corinthians 10:5).

From studying the passage to delivering the message, House and Garland show ministers how to prepare sermons that accurately and authoritatively preach the message God has given in the Bible.

The Role of Women in Ministry
This book examines the "battlefield texts" of this contentious issue. The book also examines the woman's position in first-century society.
