LET TER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Reader,

If you are reading this, you are already deeply invested in the world of books. Here you are, reading an editors letter! So bear
with me as I lucubrate on real books on real shelves.
Books are monuments of our pilgrimages, of ideas pondered or just nibbled on and stowed for another day. Books are
cairns along the path of life, waypoints marked and signified in lush or faded spines and covers. Books expand our horizons,
charting unexplored territories, inspiring thoughts, and even invoking authorial presence. They shape cathedrals of the
mind. And like a mountain that discloses its complex and rugged features only to those who venture closer in and higher up,
books open facets and details that appeared as a blocky monolith from afar.
Other book lovers form judgments by scanning our bookstheir abundance and arrangement disclosing where our
aspirations lie, what company we keep, and whether our interests overlap with their own. Trust and deeper friendship hang
in the balance.
So enter, friend. View our shelves, tables, and reading room. Pull up a seat and linger for a while.
Personally, Im looking forward to spending time with The Messiah Comes to Middle-Earth, the first in the Wade Centers
Hansen Lectureship series. And I find irresistible both the substance and seductive cover art of In Search of Ancient Roots:
The Christian Past and the Evangelical Identity Crisis. Take a look at John Waltons impressive work Old Testament Theology
for Christians, and then review the propositions in The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest. Thumb through the essays in
Exile: A Conversation with N. T. Wright, and dont miss Wrights response at the end.
If you are looking for texts in the area of worldview, spend some time with An Introduction to Christian Worldview. Then
dont miss the newly refurbished, expanded, and handsome Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview. And for
another sort of textbook, see the new Introduction to Political Science.
If missiology is your interestor if you just want to stay informedwe have two significant new additions to the Missio
logical Engagements series. Henning Wrogemanns magisterial Intercultural Theology, Volume Two: Theologies of Mission is
not to be missed. And speaking of monoliths that turn out to be multifaceted, thats Evelyne Reisachers Dynamics of Muslim
Worlds. Another series, Studies in Theology and the Arts, is off to a great start and now ventures into literature with a study
of Flannery OConnor in A Subversive Gospel.
On the faith and science front, theres an interesting dialogue between folks from Reasons to Believe and BioLogos
in Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation? And in the fields of counseling and psychology see Family Therapies, Integrative
Psychology, and Treating Trauma in Christian Counseling.
Finally, I highly recommend Gordon Smiths new book Institutional Intelligence, which gives us a handy new term in his
title. Its not just for administratorsanyone invested in the health and functioning of an institution will benefit from it.

Enjoy the sumptuous profusion!

THEOLOGY | NEW TESTAMENT

A Lively Dialogue with N. T. Wright

ExilE
exile

Few New Testament scholars of recent decades have set the pitch for
academic discussion and debate in their field like N. T. Wright. His
signature contention, that Israels continuing exile was a pivotal issue
in the emergence of Christianity, has found a central place in contem
A Conversation with porary New Testament scholarship.
Israel had grievously sinned against Yahweh and suffered the judg
A Conversation with

N. T. Wri ghT ment of exile from its land. But even though Israel had returned, the
majority of Jews of the Second Temple era regarded themselves in para
doxical exile under Roman rule and still awaiting their full restoration.
It was this crisis of exile that reached its climax and resolution in the
N. t. W ri ght

person and work of Jesus Christ. This, according to N. T. Wright, is the


controlling narrative that shaped the thinking of Jesus and Paul.
While many find this a compelling key to understanding the New
Testament, critical responses also abound. This book engages a
variety of scholars in conversation with Wrights thesis. Following an
introduction by James M. Scott, Wright clearly restates his thesis in a
programmatic essay. Next come eleven essays from scholars such as
Walter Brueggemann, Philip Alexander, Jrn Kiefer, Dorothy Peters,
Sc ott

and Scot McKnight. They interact with Wrights thesis from various
Edited by perspectives: Hebrew Bible, Septuagint, early Judaism, the Dead Sea
Jam e S m. S cot t Scrolls, and the New Testament. Hans Boersma and Ephraim Radner
then engage Wrights thesis from theological perspectives. Finally,
Wright offers a lively response to his interlocutors.
Exile: A Conversation with N. T. Wright takes our understanding
of this critical issue to a new level. It is essential reading for anyone
engaged with Wrights work and the Jewish setting of Jesus and Paul.

Mine the Riches of Tolkiens Theological Imagination

How can we grasp the significance of what Jesus Christ did for us?
Might literature help us as we seek further understanding of the
Christian faith?
Since at least the fourth century, with church historian Eusebius
of Caesarea, the threefold office of Christ as prophet, priest, and
king has served as one way for Christians to comprehend the gospel
narrative of his life, death, and resurrection.
Another story that has generated much reflection is J. R. R.
Tolkiens classic The Lord of the Rings. It is wellknown that Tolkien
disliked allegory. Yet he acknowledged that his work is imbued with
Christian symbolism and meaning.
Based on the inaugural Hansen Lectureship series delivered at
the Marion E. Wade Center by Philip Ryken, president of Wheaton
College, The Messiah Comes to Middle-Earth mines the riches of
Tolkiens theological imagination. In the characters of Gandalf,
Frodo, and Aragorn, Ryken hears echoes of the one who is the
true prophet, priest, and king. Moreover, he considers what that
threefold office means for his service as a college president as well as
the calling of all Christians.
Guided by both Tolkien and Ryken, things of first importance
come alive in a tale of imaginary prophets, priests, and kings.

Phil Ryken shows how profoundly Tolkiens imagination was shaped


by Jesus Christ himself, revealing the rich theological insights we
can receive from the great tales if we are attentive to them. I N T E R M E D I AT E

BIOLOGOS BOOKS ON
SCIENCE AND CHRISTIANIT Y
The BioLogos Foundation invites the church and the world to see the harmony between science and
biblical faith as they present an evolutionary understanding of Gods creation. BioLogos Books on
Science and Christianity, a partnership between BioLogos and IVP Academic, aims to advance this
mission by publishing a range of titles, from scholarly monographs to textbooks to personal stories.

The books in this series will have wide appeal among Christian audiences from nonspecialists to scholars in the field. While the

authors address a range of topics on science and faith, they support the view of evolutionary creation that sees evolution as our current

best scientific description of how God brought about the diversity of life on earth. The series authors are faithful Christians and

leading scholars in their fields.

BioLogos Books on Science and Christianity will have a variety of formats and styles well-suited for the particular audi

ence of each book. Some will be texts for the classroom, some will be for people in the pew, and some will be scholarly mono

graphs. Books in the partnership will deal with a variety of topics, including biology, cosmology, theology, Scripture, and the churchs

relationship with these topics through the centuries.

ENGAGEMENTS
MISSIOLOGICAL Global Theologies of Mission

Christianity is not only a global but also an intercultural phenomenon.


In this second volume of his three-volume Intercultural Theology,
I N T E R C U L T U R A L T H E O L O G Y Volume Two
Henning Wrogemann turns to theologies of mission. Mission theolo
gies, he argues, are found in a wide range of implicit as well as explicit
forms, from the practice of Christian presence by a Pakistani Chris
tian among a marginalized people to the published deliberations of
mission scholars in the West. The task of intercultural theology is
to investigate and promote awareness of the variety of culture- and
context-specific theologies of mission.
THEOLOGIES
From Warneck to Bosch, from Edinburgh to Lausanne to Busan,
OF MISSION Wrogemann provides an overview of the theological underpinnings,
rationalizations, and visions for mission and its practice. Tracing
developments across a range of Christian traditions, movements,
themes, and regions of the globe, from Europe and North America to
sub-Saharan Africa, Wrogemann presents us with an array of mission
theologies across the scope of the modern missionary movement.
This rich conspectus is rounded out with the doxological dimension
of mission and the varied facets of oikoumenism.
Masterful in its scope and detail, this volume will richly inform

offers a theology of the Old Testament that is consistently guided by
what the ancient authors intended as they wrote within their cognitive

How does the Old Testament understand sin and salvation?
Did God command Israel to commit genocide?

Equipping Preachers to Stir the Memory of Faith

We know of the preachers role as both teacher and proclaimer, but


Jeffrey Arthurs adds another assignment: the Lords remembrancer.
The remembrancer stirs the memory of Christ-followers, reminding
P R E AC H I N G A S R E M I N D I N G

them of the truths they once heard and fanning the flames of faith.
We live in an age of forgetfulness, so when knowledge fades and
conviction cools, the church needs to be reminded of the great truths
of the faith. When done well, preaching-as-reminding is not empty,
perfunctory repetition. Rather, it is the work of soul-watchers. Preaching
as Reminding describes the dynamic role of the remembrancer, who
prompts thankfulness and repentance, raises hope, fosters humility and

memory through vivid language, story, delivery, and ceremony. He

A Fresh Look at Judges and Ruth

The book of Judges presents Israels frailty, the nations need for
Tyndale Old Testament deliverance, and Gods use of flawed leaders to guide his chosen
Commentaries people through a dark period of their history. The book of Ruth tells
a smaller story within this narrative, showing God quietly at work
TOTC in the lives of a few individuals. Mary Evanss replacement Tyndale
commentary places each book in its historical and canonical
context, examines key theological themes, and addresses issues
facing twenty-first-century readers.
The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of

Judges and Ruth


the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The
introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment
of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following
a structural analysis, the commentary takes the book section
by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on
individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional notes
provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.
In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each
section of the text is structured under three headings: Context,
Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of
Mary J. Evans the Bible and make its message plain.

Tyndale Commentaries are always useful, not least because they


focus so clearly on the text of Scripture and do not fall into the
INTRODUCTORY trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not

Divine Salvation in Exodus and Beyond

Recounting the greatest event of divine salvation in the Old Testa


ment, the book of Exodus is not merely a story about the Lord
God rescuing enslaved Israelites from the power of a despotic and
xenophobic dictator. More importantly, it highlights how a compas
sionate and justice-seeking God transforms the lives of victimized
people so that they may experience life in all its fullness in his holy
presence.
This transformation involves a unique process that includes
redemption, ransoming, cleansing, and consecration. The story of
Exodus illustrates an all-important paradigm for understanding
the nature and goal of divine salvation, anticipating an even greater
exodus that will come through Jesus Christ.
In this Apollos Old Testament Commentary volume, Desmond
Alexander grapples with the many and varied complexities of the
carefully constructed literary collage of Exodus. As an integral part
of the longer narrative that runs from Genesis to 2 Kings, Exodus
recounts a dramatic and unified story of how the Israelites come to a
deep and close relationship with the Lord God.
Narrating past events, Exodus speaks to contemporary society,
revealing a God who passionately desires to draw people into an
intimate and exclusive relationship with himself. This detailed
commentary sheds fresh light on one of the most influential books
ever written.

HISTORICAL STUDIES | CULTURAL ANALYSIS

Reintroducing Pietism to a New Generation

Historian Mark Noll has written that historic Pietism breathed a badly
needed vitality into post-Reformation Europe. Now the time has come
for Pietism to revitalize Christianity in post-Christendom America.
In The Pietist Option, Christopher Gehrz, a historian of Pietism,
and Mark Pattie, a pastor in the Pietist tradition, show how Pietism
holds great promise for the churchand the worldtoday.
Modeled after Philipp Speners 1675 classic, Pia Desideria, this
timely book makes a case for the vitality of Pietism in our day.
Taking a hard look at American evangelicalism and why it needs
renewal, Gehrz and Pattie explore the resources that Pietism can
provide the church of the twenty-first century. This concise and
winsome volume serves as a practical guide to the Pietist ethos for
life and ministry, pointing us toward the renewal so many long for.
The Pietist Option introduces Pietism to those who dont know
itand reintroduces it to those who perceive it as an outdated and
inward-focused spirituality, a nitpicking divisiveness, or an anti-
intellectual withdrawal. With its emphasis on our walk with Jesus
and its vibrant hope for a better future, Pietism connects decisively
with the ideas and issues of our day. Here is a revitalizing option for
all who desire to be faithful and fruitful in Gods mission.

Christopher Gehrz and Mark Pattie III


What is offered here is a compelling and practical vision that is geared
toward our own contemporary challenges and context. This is a timely
and much-needed work that should be warmly embraced by Christians
from across the spectrum.

HISTORICAL STUDIES | E VANGELICALISM

Protestant Evangelicalism Has Deep Roots


IN SEARCH OF ANCIENT ROOTS

Why should evangelicals remain committed to the Reformation in


the face of perceived deficits and theological challenges with the
Protestant tradition?
Many within evangelicalism seem to think that the evangelical
faith is no more than a threadbare descendant of ancient Christianity.
K E N N E T H J . S T E WA R T The result is that a number of younger Protestants have abandoned
evangelicalism in recent years, turning instead to practices and
IN SEARCH traditions that appear more rooted in the early church.
OF In Search of Ancient Roots examines this phenomenon and places
it within a wider historical context. Ken Stewart argues that the
ANCIENT evangelical tradition in fact has a much healthier track record of
ROOTS interacting with Christian antiquity than it is usually given credit
for. He surveys five centuries of Protestant engagement with the
ancient church, showing that Christians belonging to the evangel
ical churches of the Reformation have consistently seen their faith

engagement, such as the Lords Supper and biblical interpretation,
as well as areas that raise concerns, such as monasticism.
S T E WA R T

In Search of Ancient Roots shows that evangelicals need not view


their tradition as impoverished or lacking deep roots in the tradi
tion. Christian antiquity is the heritage of all orthodox Christians,
and evangelicals have the resources in their history to claim their
place at the ecumenical table.

PHILOSOPHY & APOLOGETICS | POSTMODERNISM

Evaluating Postmodernism Through a Christian Lens

Postmodernity has matured, but the challenge of navigating our


UNDERSTANDING

contemporary culture remains. In order for Christians to make wise


decisions, we first need to understand the many facets of our post
modern context.
If Ren Descartes is often identified as the first truly modern
philosopher in light of his confidence in human reason, then post
modernism has taken Descartes to the woodshed. Stewart Kelly
and James Dew detail the litany of concerns that postmodernism
has raised: overconfidence in human reason, the limitations of
language, the relativity of truth, the lack of a truly objective view,
the inherently oppressive nature of metanarratives, the instability of
POSTMODERNISM

the human self, and the absence of any moral superiority.


With wisdom and care, Kelly and Dew compare these postmodern
principles with the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith.
What emerges is neither a rejection of everything postmodernism
is concerned with nor a wholesale embrace of all that it affirms.
Instead we are encouraged to understand the postmodern world as
we seek to mature spiritually in Christ.
AND
DEW
KELLY

To my knowledge, this is the most comprehensive and analytically


refined exposition and critique of postmodernism.

reports and a lack of interreligious dialogue, a majority of Western
Christians view Islam as more prone to violence. The perplexity is
compounded by news of violent conflicts involving Muslim commu

POLITICAL SCIENCE

An Accessible Guide to the Study of Politics

We are political beings, and our lives are shaped by political institutions.
Being a good citizen involves understanding these institutions and how
they can be used to promote the common good. Christians further
believe these institutions are integral to Gods created order, intended
by God to promote justice and help people flourish. Christians thus
have good reason to be informed about political science as they seek to

Wisdom for Building Dynamic Institutions

Institutions matter. They give us an opportunity to have an influence

institutions are at cross-purposes with dynamic communities, with
INSTITUTIONAL personal vocational calling, and with core human values. We view
them somewhat cynically as, perhaps, a necessary evil.
INTELLIGENCE Institutions, far from that, remain essential to human flourishing.
They are the very means by which communities thrive, individual
vocations are fulfilled, and society is changed for the good. As a result,
we all need to learn how to work effectively within institutions.
That is just what Gordon Smith provides. He unpacks the core of
institutional intelligencethe wisdom of working effectively within

BIOLOGOS AND REASONS TO BELIEVE

Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation? presents the fruits of nearly a decades conversation between the organizations
BioLogos and Reasons to Believe (RTB). IVP Academics associate editorial director, Jon Boyd, posed the following
questions to the books coeditors (Ken Keathley, J. B. Stump, and Joe Aguirre) and to Biologoss and RTBs presidents,
Deborah Haarsma and Hugh Ross, respectively. Here are some highlights from what they had to say.

What do you think are the best ways to respond to this crisis?
IN SEARCH OF ANCIENT ROOTS

S T E WA R T: The Christians who are most vulnerable to this form of Christian roman

developments since D. L. Moody, or Azusa Street, or the modernist-fundamentalist
controversy really matter. It abruptly dawns on them that they are not connected to any

Too many frustrated evangelicals have an eye on the Exit sign because they attribute
the shortcomings of the particular portion of the evangelical world they know best to
evangelical Christianity as a whole. Yes, some evangelical Christianity is anti-intellectual;
some is culturally shallow. But why should we attribute this frailty to the whole movement?

We should read a poem very differently than we read


a history book, and we read both of them differently than
wed read a novel. The same is true when it comes to our
approach to Scripture. Thats why this series does just
what its name describes: helps you understand the proper way
to read various books of the Bible. The authors examine
books of Scripture and give you the background
knowledge, literary analysis, and theological input
to help you read the book as it was meant to be read.

Strategic Initiatives in Evangelical Theology is a series of


seminal works of scholarship that has strategic relevance for
both evangelical scholarship and the evangelical church. This
series aims to foster interaction within the broader evangelical
community and advance discussion in the wider academic
community around emerging, current, groundbreaking, or
controversial subjects. It also provides a unique publishing
venue for both more senior and younger promising scholars.

While the volumes demonstrate a depth of appreciation for


evangelical theology and the current challenges and issues
facing it, the series seeks to engage the full range of academic
disciplines from theology and biblical studies to history, litera
ture, philosophy, the natural and social sciences, and the arts.

PR AISE FOR COLOSSIANS & PHILEMON


Here . . . is a valuable new commentary on Colossians and Philemon, marked by theological
depth and practicality. Robert Wall regularly makes astute observations on the text and pertinent
applications to modern church life where the message of this letter needs to be
heard and heeded. I heartily recommend this commentary.

Edited by Thomas C. Oden, this twenty-nine-volume series compiles


the best early Christian exegesis from the second through the eighth
centuries on the Old and New Testaments plus the Apocrypha.
Series Set: 29 volumes, 978-0-8308-1470-1, $1,595.00
I N T E R M E D I AT E

The conspectus of patristic exposition that this series offers


has been badly needed for several centuries. . . . For the ongoing
ecumenical conversation, the accurate application of early
Christian thought, and the current hermeneutical debate
as well, the Ancient Christian Commentary will prove
itself to be a really indispensable resource.

This is an important book and a welcome addition to an excellent series
(NSBT), and I commend it for all biblical disciplines. I benefited from reading
Hamiltons book, and I am grateful for his commitment to doing robust
theology and exegesis for the benefit of the church.

InterVarsity Press (IVP-USA) is pleased to announce that through an expanded partnership with Inter-Varsity Press
(IVP-UK) and the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK), it will soon be distributing a wealth of
thoughtful Christian titles from the United Kingdom to readers throughout the United States and Canada.

IVP-USA has had a long-standing distribution partnership with IVP-UK in Europe, continuing and expanding when
IVP-UK came under the management of SPCK in 2015. Now IVP-USA and SPCK will expand their partnership by
having IVP-USA serve as the distributor of SPCK and IVP-UK titles throughout North America.

SPCK, the United Kingdoms leading Christian publisher, has been around since 1698, making it the third oldest
English publishing house still operating today. Over the centuries, SPCK has distributed over thirty million books and
has provided the means for translating the Book of Common Prayer into more than two hundred languages.

IVP-USA and IVP-UK both have their roots in the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, known as
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in the United States and the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship in
the United Kingdom. They have historically been linked as the primary publishers in the United States and United
Kingdom, respectively, for authors such as John Stott and series such as New Studies in Biblical Theology and the
Bible Speaks Today.

SPCK is a company with a long and storied tradition of publishing quality books for the theological
academy and the global church. The addition of the IVP-UK imprint to what SPCK has long published
made our alliance for North American distribution a win-win proposition. We look forward to a fruitful
and profitable relationship as we bring their titles to market here in the United States and Canada.
