  • Other In Second Temple Judaism


    Dedicated to prominent biblical scholar John J. Collins, The “Other” in Second Temple Judaism explores the various ways in which Jews living in the Hellenistic and early Roman periods (both in the land of Israel and the Diaspora) constructed their identity in relation to other Jews, pagans, and Christians.

    *The Hebrew Bible and Its Reception
    *The Dead Sea Scrolls
    *Jews among Greeks and Romans

  • All Thy Lights Combine


    We do not simply interpret God’s word. His word interprets us.

    Figural interpretation has been a trademark of Anglican devotions from the beginning. Anglican readers–including Tyndale, Cranmer, Hooker, and Lewis–have been figural readers of the Bible. By paying attention to how words, images, and narratives become figures of others in Scripture, these readers sought to uncover how God’s word interprets all of reality. Every verse shines the constellation of God’s story.

    Edited by David Ney and Ephraim Radner, the essays in All Thy Lights Combine explore how the Anglican tradition has employed figural interpretation to theological, Christological, and pastoral ends. The prayer book is central; it immerses Christians in the words of Scripture and orders them by the word. With guided prayers for morning and evening, this book invites readers to be re–formed by God’s word. Become immersed in the riches of the Anglican interpretive tradition.

  • Light From Behind The Sun


    In this collection of essays, Douglas Wilson talks about one of the most beloved Christian writers of the twentieth-century: C.S. Lewis. Lewis was the kind of writer who, whether you agree with him or not, will edify and sharpen you. Douglas Wilson discusses everything from Lewis’s odd images of salvation in The Last Battle to Lewis’s view of creation to his take on heaven, hell, and education.

    Owen Barfield once said that what Lewis thought about everything came out in what he said about anything. Lewis’s writing is powerful because he understood that everything in the universe proclaimed God’s glory and thus shines with the personality of God, He Who is the “light from behind the sun.”

  • In The Fullness Of Time


    Cutting-edge reflections on a variety of biblical and theological subjects

    Over the course of his distinguished career Richard Bauckham has made pioneering contributions to diverse areas of scholarship ranging from ethics and contemporary issues to hermeneutical problems and theology, often drawing together disciplines and fields of research all too commonly kept separate from one another.

Addressing a variety of subjects related to Christology, creation, and eschatology, the contributors develop elements of Bauckham’s biblical and theological work further, present fresh research of their own to complement his work, and raise critical questions.

  • In The Kitchen Of Art


    Deeply learned, and with a style all his own, Marco Grassi is as at home with Duccio as he is with Norton Simon; Bronzino as with Bernard Berenson; a painting on his desk as with a Last Supper in Florence’s Basilica of Santa Croce. In the Kitchen of Art selects the art conservator and dealer’s most memorable contributions to The New Criterion over a span of nearly twenty years. Beginning with a previously unpublished memoir of his own Florentine upbringing, and continuing with in-depth critical discussions of the greats of Italian art along with recollections of the grandest collectors of the twentieth century, this book shows the art world in the round.

  • Where COVID Came From


    Did the Covid virus jump naturally from an animal species to humans, or did it escape from a laboratory experiment? In this essay, science writer Nicholas Wade explores the two scenarios and argues that, on present evidence, lab escape is the more likely explanation. His inference is based on specific research being conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Institute’s lack of adequate safety precautions, together with the continuing absence of any direct evidence to support natural emergence.

    The essay discusses the failure of the mainstream media to penetrate the self-interested assurance of virologists that lab escape was a dismissible conspiracy theory. It also notes how the politicization of discussion impeded consideration of the scientific facts.

  • Dubious Expediency : How Race Preferences Damage Higher Education


    This book offers eight clear-sighted essays critical of racial “diversity” preferences in American higher education. Unlike more conventional books on the subject, which are essentially apologies for racial reverse discrimination, this volume forthrightly exposes the corrosive effects of identity politics on college and university life.

    The fact-filled and hard-hitting chapters are by Heather Mac Donald, Peter N. Kirsanow, Peter W. Wood, Lance Izumi and Rowena Itchon, John Ellis, Carissa Mulder, and the editors Gail Heriot and Maimon Schwarzschild.

  • Church Cracked Open


    Sometimes it takes disruption and loss to break us open and call us home to God. It’s not surprising that a global pandemic and once-in-a-generation reckoning with white supremacy–on top of decades of systemic decline–have spurred Christians everywhere to ask who we are, why God placed us here and what difference that makes to the world.

    In this critical yet loving book, the author explores the American story and the Episcopal story in order to find out how communities steeped in racism, establishment, and privilege can at last fall in love with Jesus, walk humbly with the most vulnerable and embody beloved community in our own broken but beautiful way.

    The Church Cracked Open invites us to surrender privilege and redefine church, not just for the sake of others, but for our own salvation and liberation.

  • Bioethics And The Character Of Human Life

  • Discovering John : Essays By John Ashton


    This collection of posthumously published essays by John Ashton manifests his ongoing exegetical work at the end of his life. The essays explore themes arising from his groundbreaking study, Understanding the Fourth Gospel, which John Ashton intended to be preceded by an intellectual autobiography contextualizing this study both in the wider context of biblical scholarship and the particularities of his life. This in itself is an unusual contribution and it sheds much light not only on the current state of Johannine studies but also on the situation of those involved with both church and academy in the closing decades of the twentieth century.

  • When We Pray


    The essays in this volume from liturgists in mainstream Christian churches in Australia and New Zealand gladly acknowledge that when we pray, we join with others.

    We share a history, a way of worshipping, often a common language and established forms, with authorised prayer books designed to retain the theological and liturgical emphases of the various churches. Yet it is a subject that can divide as well as unite; with a variety of experiences, attitudes and aspirations, especially in a world where forms of worship are readily accessible from internet sources.

    If worship and prayer express what we believe, who authorises forms of worship; who determines the authenticity of liturgy; what principles underlie and surround how people of faith worship in formal gatherings? These are some of the issues that inform the essays in this practical and ecumenical resource.

  • In The Footsteps Of Jesus Volume 2

Spending 15 minutes in Bible reading along with this companion book will help to provide spiritual guidance for the day. Thought-provoking questions at the end of each reflection will help to challenge the reader, sometimes raising deep and profound issues.

    Useful for sermon illustrations, this book will also benefit individual or group study as well as personal reading and reflection.

  • Truth And Hope


    In this varied collection of essays, Walter Brueggemann provides a lens into biblical teachings concerning the present age of fake news, lies, and alternate realities. Compiled and edited by Louis Stulman, professor of religion at the University of Findlay, these essays carry a common theme of truth and hope. As Brueggemann writes in the preface, “there is no doubt that the prophetic tradition regularly engages in truth-telling in order to expose social reality as a systemic act of ‘falseness’ that contradicts the purposes of God. The prophetic tradition of Jeremiah, for instance, is preoccupied with truth-telling that exposes ‘falseness.’ The prophet exposes the deceit of dominant culture.”

    That same prophetic tradition (like many others) turns eventually to the work of hope-telling. Such hope does not doubt that the faithful God can create futures, a way out of no way. The sequence from truth to hope in the book of Jeremiah is characteristic of the prophetic books of the Old Testament. These several prophetic voices (that gave canonical shape to the prophetic books) knew that this sequence is definingly important. There can be no hope until truth is told. Our temptation, of course, is to do the work of hope without the prior work of truth.

    Readers will find this collection of essays to be theologically rooted in the concept of prophetic tradition as a means of truth-telling. Brueggemann explores that, without God, truth-telling is nothing more than harping, and hope-telling is only wishful thinking.

  • Christ The Cornerstone


    What does it mean to say Jesus is Lord?

    The late Anglican pastor John Stott–named as one of the 100 most influential people in 2005 by Time magazine-was committed to the notion that Jesus’ lordship has ramifications for all of life. Out of this conviction grew his contention that the whole mission of God includes both evangelism and social action. Christ the Cornerstone recovers several decades of his writings exploring the consequences of Jesus’ lordship from the pages of Christianity Today, including the regular “Cornerstone” column he wrote from 1977-1981. In them, he treats such diverse topics as Scripture, discipleship, the worldwide mission of the church, and social concerns such as the value of human life, care for animals, racial diversity, and economic inequality. Gain insight for today from the writings of a guiding light of evangelicalism.

  • Architect Of Evangelicalism


    Discover the ongoing relevance of the essential evangelical.

    In recent years, the label “evangelical” has been distorted and its usefulness questioned. No one is better equipped to provide a clear understanding of evangelicalism than the late Carl F. H. Henry, the founding editor of Christianity Today and the most influential theologian of American evangelicalism in the twentieth century. While Billy Graham was preaching the gospel to stadiums full of people, Henry was working tirelessly to help Christians adopt a worldview that encompasses all of life. Architect of Evangelicalism helps us gain a better sense of the roots of American evangelicalism by giving us the best of Henry’s Christianity Today essays on subjects such as what defines evangelicalism, what separates it from theological liberalism, what evangelical Christian education should look like, and how evangelicals should engage with society.

  • World Mission : Theology, Strategy, And Current Issues


    World missions needs a fully biblical ethos.

    This is the contention of the editors of and contributors to World Mission, a series of essays aimed at reforming popular approaches to missions.

    In the first set of essays, contributors develop a biblical theology of world missions from both the Old and New Testaments, arguing that the theology of each must stand in the foreground of missions, not recede into the background. In the second, they unfold the Great Commission in sequence, detailing how it determines the biblical strategy of all mission enterprises. Finally, they treat current issues in world missions from the perspective of the sufficiency of Scripture.

    Altogether, this book aims to reform missions to be thoroughly – not just foundationally – biblical, a needed correction even among the sincerest missionaries.

  • Christianity And Pluralism


    Are the world’s great religions ultimately all the same?

    Christianity and Pluralism is a collection of concise yet thoughtful essays by J. I. Packer and Ron Dart, interacting with and responding to the four traditional models used to answer the existence of multiple faiths (exclusive, inclusive, pluralist, and syncretist), but focusing particularly that form of syncretism which claims that all faiths find commonality through their mystical traditions. Written in response to key events in the history of the Anglican church, Packer and Dart’s analysis gives us a perennially relevant model for how the church ought to respond to our own pluralistic culture with integrity and kindness – and how to uphold the distinctiveness of the gospel. Christians directly or indirectly engaging our pluralist world will find their ideas enriched by this short yet powerful book.

  • Faith And Reason


    This work is an inspiring collection of essays written by professional philosophers who have converted to Roman Catholicism, explaining their reasons for that journey into the ancient Church.

    Twelve highly respected intellectuals whose professional training has honed their reasoning skills and whose vocation calls them to pursue the truth–come what may– give their compelling stories of why they embraced Catholicism. Among the twelve are well-known writers and teachers including Peter Kreeft, Edward Feser, Candace Vogler, J. Budziszewski, Robert Koons and others, with a Foreword by Francis Beckwith

    They understand that God has revealed it and God is Truth. Through what precise means God drew the wise men to follow the star to Bethlehem, we can only speculate. But we need not speculate here, for these essays detail the various perceptible means of grace God has used to draw these lovers of wisdom to Himself. In every case, reason has played a primary role. And this is fitting, for reason is our most noble faculty; fitting too, because God uses the bait most appropriate to those He seeks to lure.

    Of course, reason never forces faith upon a person. Yet it was the reasonableness of the Catholic faith, especially in contrast to other claimants (or wholesale denials) of supernatural revelation, that captured the attention of these professional philosophers and that cleared a space into which the seed of supernatural faith could be planted.
