Reviews

Chris Palmer's new book Strange Scriptures may seem "strange" at first, but he has done a great job reconsidering New Testament passages that Christian readers tend to avoid because they are hard to understand, even offensive. After explaining them with insights from the original Greek and the ancient historical context, he offers some insightful ways of applying these passages to our lives, followed by a suggested prayer and an activity to drive the point home. Thoughtful Christians will find much to learn from these insights; preachers will also find great sermon illustrations here.--Jon Newton "Author, A Pentecostal Commentary on Revelation"
In Strange Scriptures, Chris Palmer takes readers on a journey through many difficult and overlooked passages within the New Testament, offering exegetical insights, spiritual reflections, and life applications. This is a must-read for those looking for an accessible devotional that draws on rich scholarship. Read and be blessed.--Andrew Ray Williams, PhD "St. Basil Fellow, Center for Pastor Theologians"
We need fewer books that give you the fish and more books on how to fish. Strange Scriptures will teach you how to fish. In each study, Chris provides sound exegesis from the Greek text, an illustration, and an application--all of which work to bring the text to life in the twenty-first century. One could follow Chris's method for any passage in the text and come away with rich meaning. Chris is a balanced, measured, and trustworthy voice in a sea of theological and political activism.--Nathan Finochio "Founder, TheosU"
