What Is the Meaning of Sex?
by Denny Burk
This book argues that God’s glory is the ultimate purpose of sex and that all sexual morality must be measured by its ability to achieve that end. This book applies that thesis to a range of issues: the definition of marriage, homosexuality, singleness, divorce, pornography, and much more.

Burk’s article is “Gender Confusion and a Gospel-Shaped Counter-Culture.”
The New Evangelical Subordinationism? Perpectives on the Equality of God the Father and God the Son
Edited by Dennis W. Jowers and H. Wayne House
Evangelicals have engaged in a vigorous debate over the doctrine of the Trinity. One group argues that the Father and the Son are equal in authority and power with the Son submitting Himself to the Father only temporarily during the incarnation. Another group argues that the Son’s submission to the Father is functional (not ontological) and eternal. All sides of the debate are represented here, and the contributors include Bruce Ware, Wayne Grudem, Kevin Giles, Craig Keener, Michael Bird, Linda Belleville, myself and more.
Articular Infinitives in the Greek of the New Testament
