Role of Death in Life_9780227175729

The Role of Death in Life: A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death
Edited by John Behr and Conor Cunningham

‘The book is especially valuable for its engagement with both Catholic and Orthodox theology, the latter often underrepresented in dialog with science and medicine. Theologians will be particularly drawn to this book because it offers fresh prospectives on incarnation and resurrection and overcoming of death with life. Those with interest in death and dying will also find it stimulating for offering constructive proposals and multidisciplinary perspectives.’  – Sarah K. Pinnock, Religion and Theology

 

9780227175064_cover TrinityP.inddThe Trinity and the Vindication of Christian Paradox: An Interpretation and Refinement of the Theological Apologetic of Cornelius Van Til
By B.A. Bosserman

‘The book is both a guide to and a constructive step forward for the theological and apologetic Trinitarian thought of Cornelius van Til.… [M]ost surprising and compelling however, was his explication of van Til’s appropriation of aspects of absolute idealism…. Bosserman has opened a door for renewed study of Van Til and reveals any superficial dismissals of van Til as being unwarranted – he is clearly a figure worth engaging. The monograph is a welcomed investigation of van Til and should be engaged by Reformed students, scholars, and pastors.’ – Greg Parker Jr., Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

C S Lewis 9780227173381 copy

C.S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil: An Investigation of a Pervasive Theme
By Jerry Root

‘A study that is not only comprehensive in its coverage but also clear in noting the theological and anthropological implications of Lewis’ work for the individual and the church as they relate to culture…. A thoughtful read fot all Lewis readers.’
Iain S. Maclean, Anglican and Episcopal History, December 2017

 

9780227176177 cover Flesh.inddThe God of All Flesh: And Other Essays
Edited by Walter Brueggemann and K.C. Hanson

‘[T]his volume highlights some of the collected essays written between 1974 and 2009 as Festschriften by famed biblical scholar, Walter Brueggemann…. This reviewer’s first exposure to the thought, work, and writing of Professor Brueggemann came in graduate school with is remarkable book, The Prophetic Immigration. That work opened up a very different and helpful angle in understanding the phenomenon of prophets, and as a result, there has always been a deep indebtedness to him. Likewise, the reader will remain grateful and indebted to Walter Brueggemann for the many insights provided by The God of All Flesh and Other Essays.’ – Clifford Chalmers Cain, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

9780227176290_cover Icons.indd

From Icons to Idols: Documents on the Image Debate in Reformation England
By David J. Davis

‘[D]avis’ anthology is well-crafted and informative…. By including material from a variety of viewpoints, Davis ensures that readers from a variety of viewpoints and denominational background will find selections that resonate with their own understanding of the topic. The breadth and depth of the included material make Davis’ anthology a helpful tool that offers the promise of continued use as a collection of authoritative documents on an important subject.’ – Derek R. Davenport, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

The Forgiveness of Sins9780227176054_cover Forgiveness.indd
By Tim Carter

‘This learned and comprehensive monograph surveys the idea of the forgiveness of sins in the Old and New Testaments, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and early Christian writings both orthodox and heterodox down to Augustine in the fifht century.… [S]triking and original insights emerge… [F]or anyone interested in forgiveness and atonement it is essential reading.’ – John Barton, Church Times, 19 January 2018

 

9780227175774_cover Trenches2.indd

Ecclesiology in the Trenches: Theory and Method under Construction
Edited by Sune Fahlgren and Jonas Ideström

‘There is no doubt that the transdisciplinary approach of this book to ecclesiology represents a unique and remarkable contribution to the field….[I] would warmly recommend this book to anyone interested in studying ecclesiology. It is not just the innovative perspective that makes this volume an important accomplishment, but also the gathered variety of methodologies and ecclesiological loci which it presents.’ – Petre Maican, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

Three Theological Mistakes_9780227175286

Three Theological Mistakes: How to Correct Enlightenment Assumptions about God, Miracles, and Free Will
By Ric S. Machuga

‘[Three Theological Mistakes] provides a valuable service by exposing the roots, and the questionableness, of many views which are still too often taken for granted…. The book is recommended to all those who are interested in questions of theological method, all who are interested in the relationship of theology to science and philosophy, and all who are interested in the effects of the Enlightenment on theology.’ – William J. Brennan III, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

The Greatness of Humility: St Augustine on Moral Excellence9780227176009_cover2 Humility.indd
By Joseph J. McInerney

‘[T]he Greatness of Humility is a well-argued and clear account of an undertheorized virtue in Augustine’s corpus. McInerney’s book stands as a fine exegetical and historical study as well as a normative proposal for humility’s place in moral perfection. Because of this, the book is accessible to readers with a variety of interests, from Augustine and virtue ethics to Hume and Nietzsche…. In short, this volume is a helpful study of an underappreciated aspect of Augustine’s moral thought that is able to reach a wider audience than most books of its kind.’ – Luke Zerra, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

 

9780227175071_cover AquinasL.inddAquinas on Israel and the Church: The Question of Supersessionism in the Theology of Thomas Aquinas
By Matthew A. Tapie

‘Aquinas on Israel and the Church provides an excellent and thorough analysis of Aquinas’ theology…. Matthew Tapie brings a great deal of clarity to the discussion on Aquinas’ views…. [T]apie’s work is well worth reading for anyone concerned with Christian-Jewish relations or the theology Thomas Aquinas.’Ben Thompson, Reviews in Religion and Theology, January 2018

#Reviews from Modern Believing

Warmest regards to our friends at Modern Believing who have published a number of reviews of our titles in the most recent edition (57.2) of their highly respected journal.

Communicating the Faith Indirectly
Selected Sermons, Addresses, and Prayers

“These collections will appeal especially to those who knew Holmer personally and sat at his feet as students and colleagues. But the main reason that the editors and publishers have taken such trouble to bring these papers together is because they believe that they deserve a wider audience. They are right…”
John Saxbee, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

Lutheran Identity and Political Theology

“Overall, the collection demonstrates that Lutheran scholarship is alive and aware of the same challenges of the twenty-first century that other denominational bodies are beginning to address. Those who are looking for glimpses of how these questions are being addressed will find a diverse set of answers between the covers, unified in their optimism.”
Claire Hein Blanton, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

The Practice of the Body of Christ
Human Agency in Pauline Theology after MacIntyre

“Those familiar with MacIntyre will appreciate the well-developed section on his reading of Augustine, not to mention the mature deconstruction of the modern moral tradition.
… For my own part, I find him persuasive.”
Michael Lakey, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

Confessing the Faith Yesterday and Today
Essays Reformed, Dissenting, and Catholic

“Sell writes well, often with a twinkle in his eye and usually generous when treating thinkers with whom he takes issue. He displays a refreshing humility for a Reformed Theologian…. This book deserves a wide audience….
It ought to be read by church leaders and all thinking Christians…”
David Peel, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

Milton’s Inward Liberty
A Reading of Christian Liberty from the Prose to Paradise Lost

“Falcone makes his case reasonably well…. There are some good insights…”
Theo Hobson, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

Reading Auschwitz with Barth
The Holocaust as Problem and Promise for Barthian Theology

“…this is an interesting, readable, and important book that provides a fitting capstone to Lindsay’s trilogy. One of the most significant contributions of this book is its willingness to face what Lindsay calles the tremendum of the holocaust and to continue to rethink Christian theology, liturgy, and practise in light of the horror of those events.”
Ashley Cocksworth, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

Looking Unto Jesus
The Christ-Centered Piety of Seventeenth-Century Baptists

Yuille’s Looking unto Jesus is another valuable publication that seeks to bring more obscure theological writings to modern readers…. Yuille provides the means by which modern readers can engage with these works, expounding on themes, issues and biblical passages in order to show more clearly how much can be gained from reading the work of such passionate preachers.
Rachel Adcock, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

The Trinity and the Vindication of Christian Paradox
An Interpretation and Refinement of the Theological Apologetic of Cornelius Van Til

…Bosserman’s lucid and insightful monograph provokes [important questions on vindicating paradoxes].
Cory Brock, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016

The Fifteen Confederates

As the author of an important monograph on Eberlin, Dipple is well qualified to rectify that deficiency by offering a translation and introduction which reflect the most recent scholarship. …a fine edition, which will be of great use to students of the Reformation who do not have German.
Tom Scott, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016
