The Politics of the Cross: A Christian Alternative to Partisanship

Daniel K. Williams (Eerdmans)

Williams writes both professionally and confessionally as a believer; he continues to offer astute analysis and rigorous nuance as he delves into American history to explain the developments that led to the present, but he also draws readers’ attentions to biblical injunctions about how we should operate in today’s increasingly complex world.

England Before and After Wesley: The Evangelical Revival and Social Reform

J. Wesley Bready, republished with new foreword by Michael Tymchak and Abraham Ninan (Regent College Publishing)

Amid the chaos and confusion of today’s polarized political climate, in which ideological opponents routinely caricature one another and history is often read in a manner devoid of all nuance, this republication of J. Wesley Bready’s classic work comes as a welcome development. Focusing primarily on the towering figure of John Wesley and his impact on evangelical revival and social reform in 18th century England, Bready demonstrates the inextricable link between living Christian faith and the humanizing and ameliorative social transformations of the period.

NIV Heritage Bible: Premier Collection

The NIV Heritage Bible is stunning in both quality and design, and as mentioned above, is guaranteed for life. Opening this Bible is an experience in itself. The Bible comes in an unusually sturdy, and tastefully designed box, which is itself sure to stand the test of time. After opening the box, one immediately notices that the Bible has been carefully wrapped in black paper, and sealed with a decorative stamp.

Hans Boersma (Regent College Publishing)

Hans Boersma, Saint Benedict Servants of Christ Chair in Ascetical Theology at Nashotah House Theological Seminary and Research Professor of Theology at Regent College provides a concise and accessible primer on the theology of eucharistic participation.

"On Value" Blog Entry

If Wendell Berry Were Ever To Write On Local Bookstores...

Last fall, we released a letter advocating for the value of a local bookstore and explaining our decision to cease offering a standing 20% discount in effort to sustain this value. While on the surface, this may seem to have nothing whatever to do with Wendell Berry, we think it does. We’re not sure if Berry has published his thoughts on bookstores, specifically. But we believe he would heartily agree with the following…

On the Road with Saint Augustine

James K. A. Smith (Brazos Press)

Not only engaging, but also well-written, and theologically faithful to the best of the Christian tradition, it is also a really important book to appear in our culture at this point in time. Augustine, Smith reminds us, is Christianity’s primary teacher on the quest for self-identity.

"The Lord's Prayer" and "The Ten Commandments"

The Lexham Press Christian Essentials Series are mercifully short (about 100 pages), and very readable. Below are my brief reflections on the two most recently published books in the series, "The Lord’s Prayer: A Guide to Praying to Our Father" by Wesley Hill, and "The Ten Commandments, A Guide to the Perfect Law of Liberty" by Peter Leithart.

A Post Corona-Virus "World" and the Desert Fathers and Mothers

Charles Ringma (Professor Emeritus, Missions and Evangelism)

Is it possible that in the post-covid-19 “world” we may see a renewed emphasis on fellowship in the churches, or we may see a vitalised laity who seek to be like the Desert Fathers and Mothers, or we may see both, or something else may emerge?

The Preacher's Wife

Kate Bowler (Princeton University Press)

From the early days of Christianity to the present, women have been instrumental in the life of the Church. St. Paul writes to his protege Timothy “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you” (2 Tim. 1:5); Timothy’s faith was dependent upon his female family members instructing him in the ways of Jesus. From Timothy’s time to our present, women have served faithfully as mentors, "prayer warriors," missionaries, evangelists, and inspiring performers, even as they have had to contend with patriarchs who seek to limit and even silence women from speaking and teaching authoritatively.
