Richard Hooker and the Vision of God
Exploring the Origins of ‘Anglicanism’
By Charles Miller
ISBN: 9780227174005

9780227174067_coverRichard.indd“Miller has written a clear and accessible account of Hooker’s theology, illuminating very helpfully the context in which he wrote, while also apprecitating the complexity of Hooker’s contested legacy during subsequent periods in Anglican history including the present. … Miller has made a valuable contribution not only to the study of Richard Hooker as an historical figure of importance to Anglicanism, but opened his writings as a gift to the Church today.”

Karl Barth Resurrection 9780227174104“Hitchcock demonstrates in a well-researched and astutely written volume the difficulties that Barth encountered while pressing the mystery of resurrection too much, and how the failings get submerged even lost in his massive theological enterprise.”

God Who Is Beauty_9780227174296“This is a brilliant book on both Dionysus’s On the Divine Names and Thomas Aquinas’ commentary; it hammers in a final nail that forces modernity to re-configure its understanding of the relation between Greek and Medieval philosophy.”

Paul’s Non-Violent Gospel
The Theological Politics of Peace in Paul’s Life and Letters
By Jeremy Gabrielson
