#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
