The Shaun Tabatt Show is an interview-based program offering discussion on a variety of topics including books, music, film, and more.

Sep 30, 2015

Welcome to the Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is Philip Comfort and we're talking about his book A Commentary on the Manuscripts and Text of the New Testament (Kregel Academic, 2015).

About The Book:
This small and insightful volume is an essential resource for the committed student of Greek New Testament. Using the same trim size as UBS and NA28 Greek New Testaments, this reference commentary, based on the latest research, is designed to aid the reader in understanding the textual reliability, variants, and translation issues for each passage in the New Testament.

Unlike any other commentary, this volume contains commentary on actual manuscripts rather than a single version of the Greek New Testament. There are nearly 6,000 existing manuscripts, and just as many textual variants, with thousands of manuscripts having been discovered since the time of the King James Version. This commentary is filled with notes on significant textual variants between these manuscripts.

About The Author:
For the last 25 years Philip Comfort has been a senior editor at Tyndale House Publishers. He has written two novels, three collections of poetry, and over fifteen volumes on New Testament studies. He and his wife Georgia live in South Carolina.

Welcome to the Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is Dr. Timothy Dailey and we’re talking about his new book The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth about Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings (Chosen Books, 2015).

About The Book:
Teenage vampires. UFO sightings. Alien invasions. Ghost stories. The zombie apocalypse.

You don't have to look far to see that today's pop culture is becoming increasingly dominated by paranormal beings. Topics that once belonged to the fringes of the occult world have suddenly found their way onto every television channel and magazine cover.

What does this mean for Christians? How do we respond to a culture saturated with the paranormal?

In this compelling book, Dr. Timothy Dailey explores the counterfeit spirituality of the paranormal world. By confronting these phenomena head-on, Dailey exposes the dark truth behind these tales.

In a world that fears an uncertain future, Dailey offers hope: a way back to the one true source of spiritual connection. The only one that can satisfy our souls.

About The Author:
Dr. Timothy Dailey is a Christian scholar and bestselling author whose books have sold more than 300,000 copies. He holds an M.A. from Wheaton College and a Ph.D. from Marquette University.

Welcome to the Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is Justin Holcomb and we’re talking about his new book God Made All of Me: A Book to Help Children Protect Their Bodies (New Growth Press, 2015).

About The Book:
God Made Every Part of You!

It's easy to convey the message to children that their bodies or particular parts of their bodies are shameful. This misconception fuels confusion, embarrassment, and secrecy, and often prevents children from recognizing or reporting sexual abuse.

God Made All of Me is a simply-told, beautifully-illustrated story to help families talk about these sensitive issues with two- to eight-year-old children. Because the private parts of our bodies are private, the home is the ideal environment where a child should learn about his or her body and how it should be treated by others.

God Made All of Me starts from the fundamental truth that God created everything and applies that truth to kids and their bodies. It equips parents to talk with both boys and girls about their bodies and to help them understand the difference between the appropriate and inappropriate touch of others. God Made All of Me allows families to build a first line of defense against sexual abuse in the safety of their own homes.

God Made All of Me is the first children's book written by Rid of My Disgrace authors Justin and Lindsey Holcomb. Parents of young children themselves, the Holcombs regularly counsel victims of sexual abuse and are profoundly aware of the dangers kids face. Their simple and relatable story, designed to help children protect their bodies, will be an important resource for every family with young children.

  • Simple, relatable story for two- to eight-year-old children, designed to help them protect their bodies.
  • Includes colorful, age-appropriate illustrations.
  • Conveys a clear message that God made every part of the human body and that every part is, therefore, good (the doctrine of creation.
  • Gently opens the conversation about sexual abuse that every family needs to have.
  • Facilitates open conversations about appropriate and inappropriate touch.
  • Overcomes confusion, secrecy, and embarrassment about bodies with truth.


About The Author:
Justin Holcomb, PhD, is an Episcopal priest and professor of theology and Christian thought at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary. He is the author of On the Grace of God, Know the Heretics, and Know the Creeds and Councils, as well as the coauthor of Is It My Fault? and Rid of My Disgrace.

Welcome to the Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is Alex Early and we’re talking about his new book The Reckless Love of God: Experiencing the Personal, Passionate Heart of the Gospel (Bethany House, 2015).

About The Book:
Does God Really Love Me?

Sometimes the bigger something is, the easier it is to forget. You may have heard all your life that God is love, but has the truth of that statement really sunk in?

In The Reckless Love of God, pastor and church planter Alex Early pulls you in close to ask if you've ever really considered what it means to say "Jesus loves me." God's love for us is real--he feels, knows, and even suffers on our behalf. Nothing will change your life, your goals, and your relationships faster than being captivated by this reality.

Whether you grew up as a Christian and have forgotten this essential truth, or if you're hearing it for the first time, you need to be reminded--and assured--of the simple, amazing, mind-blowing fact that God loves us.

About The Author:
Alex Early (MDiv, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary; MA, London School of Theology) is a pastor who has planted a church in a bar, served as a theology professor, created the Acts 29 West Academy, a missional-theological training center, and launched the Acts 29 podcast. Alex lives with his wife and children in Atlanta, Georgia.

Welcome to the Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is Jennifer O. White and we're talking about her new book Prayers for New Brides: Putting on God's Armor After the Wedding Dress (New Leaf Press, 2015).

About The Book:
A new wife is seldom aware of the intense spiritual battle threatening her dreams of happily ever after. Often, she enters the marriage without the benefit of great examples, biblical knowledge, and mentors offering godly wisdom. The battle begins and she is unarmed. Can her faith survive? Will her marriage become another divorce statistic? Prayers for New Brides will empower her to protect her heart and marriage. Within these short chapters she will:

  • Learn biblical truths about marriage, the spiritual battle, and prayer
  • Pray in agreement with God’s will for her marriage
  • Activate these truths in her life through study, journaling, and intentional conversations with her husband and other wives.


Marriage is God’s design. He has a battle plan, the power and the resources to win. When a wife knows who God is and what He can do, she can trust Him to sustain her and her marriage. Her joy will be complete as she allows Him to enable her to do more for her union than she can imagine.

About the Author:
Jennifer White writes with fierce honesty to every new bride from her own experience of one failed marriage and one rescued by the Wonderful Counselor.
