LET TER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Reader,

I won’t deny that I really love a catalog like this. Partly, it’s all the pretty stuff, and I really do love the gorgeous
covers that our art director, David Fassett, and his team create for our titles. Partly it’s the interviews and
excerpts we include, since we think this should be as much like a magazine or journal as possible. (You’ll find
substantive content on pages 7, 10, 19, and 31 in this issue.)
But really it’s about the books, of course. Books are all about bridge building—jumping gaps, making
connections, and closing circuits so the power can flow.
Books are all about giving readers an experience they wouldn’t otherwise have: an experience with an author
who’s been somewhere, done something, learned something, lived something. And books are all about giving
authors an opportunity they wouldn’t otherwise have: to multiply their gifts, share the load, and spread the wealth.
It’s that two-way street that’s so amazing—the mutuality of the reader/author relationship where the power
lies. And of course you are right there at that junction, that synapse of reader and author. It goes without saying
that you are readers, and many of you (given that you’re holding an IVP Academic catalog) are surely authors.
In this season’s catalog you’ll find new and forthcoming titles across our usual wide range of fields, from the
physical sciences and philosophy to race and the New Testament. Even if your focus is trained on one particular
realm of intellectual endeavor, I hope you’ll dip into other sections of this catalog and be encouraged to see what
your peers are reading and writing in other quarters. Where we diverge, no less than where we come together,
creates tremendous social capital for us as a community.
So thanks for being part of all this! I look forward to finding new ways together to bridge the gaps that we see
so prevalent in our cultures and institutions. We at IVP Academic think about such bridge building a lot, and the
roles you play in the classroom, church, neighborhood, and library are a huge blessing to us all.

Yours,

Jon Boyd
Editorial Director, IVP Academic

SCIENCE & CHRISTIANIT Y | ORIGINS

A Comprehensive Textbook on Origins from a


Scientific Perspective
The question of origins remains a stumbling block for many. But
just as the Psalmist gained insight into God’s character through
the observation of nature, modern scientific study can deepen and
enrich our vision of the Creator and our place in his creation. In this
often contentious field Bishop, Funck, Lewis, Moshier, and Walton
serve as our able guides.
Based on over two decades of teaching origins together in the
classroom, the authors present a textbook exploring mainstream
scientific theories of origins in astronomy, cosmology, chemistry,
geology, biology, physical anthropology, and genetics. While many
authors engage origins from a Christian perspective, this is the first
work offering a full-fledged discussion of the scientific narrative of
origins, from the Big Bang through humankind, accessible to a lay
audience in biblical and theological perspective.
Topics include
• Principles of biblical interpretation
• Close readings of relevant Genesis texts
• A comprehensive trinitarian doctrine of creation
• Cosmic origins
• The geologic history of Earth
• The origin of life on Earth
• The origin of species and diversity of life
• Human origins
• New creation and creation care
• Science education

PHILOSOPHY | SURVEY

A Complete Guide to Philosophical


Themes and Figures
Plato. Aristotle. Augustine. Hume. Kant. Hegel.
These names and the philosophies associated with them ring
through the minds of every student and scholar of philosophy. And
in their search for knowledge, every student of philosophy needs to
know the history of the philosophical discourse such giants have
bequeathed us. Noted philosopher C. Stephen Evans brings his
expertise to this daunting task as he surveys the history of Western
philosophy, from the Pre-Socratics to Nietzsche and postmodernism
—and every major figure and movement in between.

“When a world-class Christian philosopher writes on the history of


Western philosophy, one can expect a first-rate work that illuminates
and enriches—and that is just what we find here. Evans’s book effec-
tively distills key philosophical figures and their ideas, considering
both their historical context and their lasting influence. What we have
in this volume is a marvelous resource that engages key thinkers and
philosophical concepts judiciously, insightfully, and Christianly.”

—PAU L CO PA N

this volume will be a very useful textbook for a

In recent decades churches have accommodated disabled people
in various ways. Through access ramps and elevators and sign
language, disabled persons are invited in to worship. But are they
actually enfolded into the church’s mission? Have the able-bodied
come to recognize and appreciate the potential contributions of
people with disabilities in the ministry and witness of the church?

Benjamin Conner wants to stimulate a new conversation between
disability studies and Christian theology and missiology. How can DISABLING MISSION,
we shape a new vision of the entire body of Christ sharing in the ENABLING WITNESS

BIBLICAL STUDIES | HISTORY OF BIBLICAL INTERPRE TATION

A Patristic Perspective on Origins Texts


Do the writings of the church fathers support a literalist interpreta-
tion of Genesis 1? Young-earth creationists have maintained that
they do. And it is sensible to look to the Fathers as a check against
our modern biases. But before enlisting the Fathers as ammunition
in our contemporary Christian debates over creation and evolu-
tion, some cautions are in order. Are we correctly representing
the Fathers and their concerns? How can we avoid flattening the
Fathers’ thinking into an indexed source book in our quest for estab-
lishing their significance for contemporary Christianity?
Craig Allert notes the abuses of patristic texts and introduces the
Fathers within their ancient context. What can we learn from a
Basil or Theophilus, an Ephrem or Augustine, as they meditate and
expound on themes in Genesis 1? How were they speaking to their
own culture and the questions of their day? Might they have some-
thing to teach us about listening carefully to Scripture as we wrestle
with the great axial questions of our own day?
Allert’s study prods us to consider whether contemporary evangeli-
cals, laudably seeking to be faithful to Scripture, may in fact be more
bound to modernity in our reading of Genesis 1 than we realize.
Here is a book that resets our understanding of early Christian
interpretation and the contemporary conversation about Genesis 1.

“This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to understand the


unique features of patristic exegesis. . . . Using the Genesis creation
account, the reader is invited to see that the ancients were far more
imaginative and biblically minded than we credit them.” I N T E R M E D I AT E

BIBLICAL STUDIES | NEW TESTAMENT

Fully Revised Edition of a Classic New


Testament Textbook
Many introductions to the New Testament zero in on the historical
contexts in which the New Testament literature was written. This
introduction goes further—to give particular attention to the social,
cultural, and rhetorical contexts of the New Testament authors and
their writings.
Few introductions to the New Testament integrate instruction in
exegetical and interpretive strategies with the customary considera-
tions of authorship, dating, audience, and message. This introduction
introduces students to a relevant facet of interpretation with each
portion of New Testament literature. Recognizing that the New Testa-
ment itself—in its parts and as a whole—is a pastoral resource, each
chapter closes with a discussion of implications for ministry formation.
First published in 2004, David A. deSilva’s comprehensive and
carefully crafted introduction to the New Testament has been
long established as an authoritative textbook and resource for
students. This beautiful, full-color second edition has been updated
throughout with new scholarship and numerous images. The pages
of this integrative text brim with maps, photos, points of interest,
and aids to learning, and separate chapters explore the historical and
cultural environment of the New Testament era, the nature of the
Gospels and the quest for the historical Jesus, and the life of Paul.
It is the first choice for those convinced that a New Testament
introduction should integrate scholarship and ministry.

BIBLICAL STUDIES | NEW TESTAMENT

Rethinking the Meaning of Glory in Romans


With its soaring affirmations and profound statements of salvation
in Christ, Romans 8 is a high point in Pauline theology. But what
does Paul mean when in 8:29 he speaks of being “conformed to the
image of his Son”?
Remarkably, there has been little scholarly attention awarded to
this Pauline statement of the goal of salvation. Is it a moral or spir-
itual or sanctifying conformity to Christ, or to his suffering, or does
it point to an eschatological transformation into radiant glory?
Haley Goranson Jacob probes and reopens a text perhaps too
familiar and a meaning too often assumed. If conformity to the
image of the Son is the goal of salvation, a proper understanding
is paramount. Jacob points out that the key lies in the meaning of
“glory” in Paul’s biblical-theological perspective and in how he uses
the language of glory in Romans. Not only is this study valuable for
bringing fresh understanding to Paul’s narrative of glory, but it also
introduces a new and compelling reading of Romans 8:29. This work
makes a strong bid to reorient our understanding of Paul’s classic
statement of the goal of salvation.

“After a lifetime of study and teaching on Romans, I was not


expecting to be confronted at my age with a fresh understanding of
its central chapter, requiring a radical rethink of many familiar land-
marks both exegetical and theological. But that is what Dr. Jacob
has achieved. . . . I urge all students of Paul and of Romans to work
carefully through the step-by-step presentation of the case.”

What Do Hymnic Texts Tell Us About Early


Christian Worship?
We know that the earliest Christians sang hymns. But are some of
these early Christian hymns preserved for us in the New Testament?
Are they right before our eyes?
New Testament scholars have long debated whether early Christian
hymns appear in the New Testament. And where some see preformed
hymns and liturgical elements embossed on the page, others see
patches of rhetorically elevated prose from the author’s hand.
Matthew Gordley now reopens this fascinating question. He begins
with a new look at hymns in the Greco-Roman and Jewish world of
the early church. Might the didactic hymns of those cultural currents
set a new starting point for talking about hymnic texts in the New
Testament? If so, how should we detect these hymns? How might
they function in the New Testament? And what might they tell us
about early Christian worship?
New Testament Christological Hymns reopens an important line
of investigation that will serve a new generation of students of the
New Testament.

“Gordley provides scholars, students, and also those concerned


with Christian worship today with a richly informed, balanced, and
stimulating study of earliest Christian hymnic praise. . . . This is now
the go-to book on the texts often cited as New Testament hymns.”

Empire and Imperialism in Mark’s Gospel


Adam Winn begins his study of the Gospel of Mark by exploring
the cataclysmic destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70.
For Jews and Christians it was an apocalyptic moment. The earth
shook, the sun went dark in the cosmic canopy, and Rome danced
on the ruins of the holy temple. The gods of Rome seemed to have
conquered the God of the Jews. And Roman Christians’ allegiance
to a messiah crucified by Rome renewed sharp questions.
Could it be that Mark wrote his Gospel in response to Roman
imperial propaganda surrounding this event? However else they
might function, are Mark’s themes and christological titles coded
subversions of empire? Have we missed clues to understanding
Mark’s messianic secret? Could a messiah crucified by Rome really
be God’s Son appointed to rule the world?
Adam Winn takes us on the adventure of rediscovering how Mark
might have been read by Christians in Rome in the aftermath of the
fall of Jerusalem. He introduces us to the Roman imperial propa-
ganda of the Flavian emperors and excavates the Markan text for
themes that address the Roman imperial setting.
Here is an intriguing look into a first-century response to the
question “Christ or Caesar?” Entering a first-century house church
in Rome, we hear this Gospel again as if for the first time.

“Mark challenges Rome and its cult of the divine emperor


with a compelling portrait of the true Son of God. Adam Winn
has perceptively pursued this line of inquiry shedding new light
on this important field of study.” I N T E R M E D I AT E

How did the books of the Bible come to be recognized as Holy Scripture? Who decided what

shape the canon should take? What criteria influenced these decisions?
After nearly nineteen centuries the canon of Scripture still remains an issue of debate.
Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox all have differing collections of documents in their
Bibles. Martin Luther questioned the inclusion of the book of James in the canon. And many
Christians today, while confessing the authority of all of Scripture, tend to rely on only a few
books and particular themes while ignoring the rest.
In this significant historical study, F.  F. Bruce brings the wisdom of a lifetime of reflection and
biblical interpretation to bear on questions and confusion surrounding the Christian canon
of Scripture. Adept in both Old and New Testament studies, he brings a rare comprehensive
perspective to the task.

Incarnation, Embodiment, and Human Flourishing


in the Digital Age
Technology is not neutral.
From the plow to the printing press, technology has always shaped
human life and informed our understanding of what it means to be
human. And advances in modern technology, from computers to
smartphones, have yielded tremendous benefits. But do these devel-
opments actually encourage human flourishing?
Craig Gay raises concerns about the theological implications
of modern technologies and philosophical movements such as
transhumanism. In response, he turns to a classical affirmation of
the Christian faith: Jesus Christ, the eternal Word of God, took on
human flesh. By exploring the doctrine of the incarnation and what
it means for our embodiment, Gay offers a course correction to the
path of modern technology without asking us to unplug completely.
The doctrine of the incarnation is not neutral either. It presents to
us an alternative vision for the future of humanity.

“Craig Gay is neither a luddite nor a technophile. He’s something


much different—a thoughtful, engaged theologian grappling with
some of the core questions raised by modern technology and its
apparent move toward disembodied life. Like Ellul and Postman
before him, Gay notes many of the ills of technological society, but
he moves beyond these seminal voices by offering a constructive
rather than merely descriptive account. Even for someone like I N T E R M E D I AT E
myself who tends to be a bit more optimistic regarding the theolog- DECEMBER 2018

that is as incarnational as it is hopeful. I recommend it.”

The church faces an unprecedented loss of rising generations.


Young adults who were active and engaged in the local church are leaving the community
behind after high school. What can we do?
Responding to these concerning statistics, Sharon Galgay Ketcham reflects theologically on
the church community and its role in forming faith. She exposes problems in the way leaders
conceive of and teach about the relationship between individual faith and the local church,
and offers fresh solutions in the form of values and practices that can shape a community into a
place where faith will flourish in those both young and old.

Should all Christians be married? Although we might quickly respond no, our cultural stories
and norms—including those in the church—often communicate yes.
Theologian and husband Kutter Callaway considers why marriage, which is a blessing from
God, shouldn’t be expected or required of all Christians. Through an examination of Scrip-
ture, cultural analysis, and personal accounts, he reflects on how our narratives have limited
our understanding of marriage and obscured our view of the life-giving and kingdom-serving
roles of single people in the church.
In doing so, Callaway helps the church craft a new story that transforms the way we look at
marriage and affirms the contributions of all to the body of Christ.

CULTURE AND CALLING

Field-Tested Insights for Crosscultural Education


In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged
James E. Plueddemann
between people of different cultural backgrounds. But educators
often struggle to adapt to the contexts of diverse learners. Some
focus so much on content delivery that they overlook crosscultural
barriers to effective teaching.
Educator and missiologist James Plueddemann offers field-tested
insights for teaching across cultural differences. He unpacks how
different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a frame-
work for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience. He
provides a model of teaching as pilgrimage, where the aim is not
merely the mastery of information but the use of knowledge to foster
the development of the pilgrim learner.
Plueddemann’s crosscultural experience shows how teachers can
make connections between content and context, bridging truth and
life. Those who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations,
churches, and other ministries will find insights here for transforma-
tional crosscultural learning.

“Masterful weaving of both theory and practice. . . . Contextualizing Education


Teaching Across Cultures will be helpful to virtually every audience
whether the differences are cultural, generational, ethnic, gender, for Global Mission
or regional. We all want to be better teachers. We are all
concerned with outcomes as a result of our teaching;
this book takes us there as well.”

Five Views on How to Approach the Practice


of Theology
How should one approach the task of theology?
The question of methodology is increasingly one of interest
among theologians, who recognize that the very manner in which
we approach theology informs both the questions we ask and the
conclusions we reach.
This volume in IVP’s Spectrum Multiview series brings together five
evangelical theologians with distinctly different approaches to the
theological task. After presenting the approaches—which include
S P E C T R U M M U L T I V I E W B O O K S
appeals to Scripture, context, missions, interdisciplinary studies,
and dogmatics—each contributor responds to the other views.
Emerging from this theological conversation is an awareness of our EDITED BY STANLEY E. PORTER

methodological commitments and the benefits that each approach
can bring to the theological task.

HISTORY | E VANGELICALISM

Evangelical Institutions in the Past, Present,


and Future
Two decades on from Mark Noll’s Scandal of the Evangelical Mind,
could we now be on the threshold of another crisis of intellectual
maturity in Christianity? Or are the opportunities for faithful intel-
lectual engagement and witness even greater now than before?
These essays invite readers to a virtual summit meeting on the
current state of the evangelical mind. The insights of national
leaders in their fields will aid readers to reflect on the past contribu-
tions of evangelical institutions for the life of the mind as well as
prospects for the future. Contributors include:
• Richard J. Mouw
• Mark A. Noll
• Jo Anne Lyon
• David C. Mahan and C. Donald Smedley
• Timothy Larsen
• Lauren Winner
• James K. A. Smith
• Mark Galli
The State of the Evangelical Mind frames the resources needed for
churches, universities, seminaries, and parachurch organizations
to chart their course for the future, both separately and together,
and provides readers with an opportunity to participate in a timely
conversation as they consider what institutional and individual role
they might play.

A LOOK INSIDE
F R O M CH A P T ER 6: PR O SPEC T S FO R T HE F U T U R E

Begin reading James K. A. Smith’s contribution to The State of the Evangelical Mind.

Because of this continued disconnect between the work of evangelical reflection


and the paucity of careful, nuanced thought in evangelical congregations, it seems
to me that future energy for developing the evangelical mind should be focused on
closing this gap.

It was important for a generation of evangelical scholars to devote themselves to


C ONTR I BUTO R
JAMES K. A.
honing what we might call “guild” scholarship—engaging the mainstream of the
SMITH academy from and with an evangelical standpoint, bearing witness to the resources
of the Christian imagination for careful thinking about the world, God, and
others. This generation of work also brought the discipline, richness, and needed complexity to spaces
of evangelical teaching and learning, enlivening the intellectual environment where evangelical leaders
are being formed. But the fruits and effects of this renewal have largely remained sequestered from the
broad network of evangelical congregations, parachurch ministries, media conglomerates, and celebrity
influencers. A renaissance of the evangelical mind that does not contribute to the reform and renewal of
the church is but a clanging symbol, I fear.

In his landmark essay “Advice to Christian Philosophers,” Alvin Plantinga exhorted Christian
scholars to exhibit integrity and boldness in their scholarly agendas—to not just ask the questions that
the academy was asking but to wrestle with the questions that the church is facing. The future of the
evangelical mind needs a generation of careful Christian scholars who are willing to take up the cross of
being “popularizers”—careful thinkers from across the disciplines who are willing to do their homework
and apprentice themselves to the standards of scholarly labor, but then are willing to forego the typical
academic ladder of success in order to take the fruits of such reflection to these disconnected spaces.
In this sense, evangelicalism is a mission field for evangelical scholarship. And I certainly do not mean
just theologians and apologists; we need sociologists and biochemists and environmental scientists and
political scientists who are willing to translate the fruit of their expertise for the sake of equipping the
evangelical community to carry out its mission.

MacDonald’s Theology of the Supernatural


The Bible is full of miracles. Yet how do we make sense of them
today? And where might we see miracles in our own lives?
In this installment of the Hansen Lectureship Series, historian
and theologian Timothy Larsen considers the legacy of George
MacDonald, the Victorian Scottish author and minister who is
best known for his pioneering fantasy literature, which influenced
authors such as C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, G. K. Chesteron, and
Madeleine L’Engle.
Larsen explores how, throughout his life and writings, MacDonald
sought to counteract skepticism, unbelief, naturalism, and materi-
alism and to herald instead the reality of the miraculous, the super-
natural, the wondrous, and the realm of the spirit.
The Hansen Lectureship series offers accessible and insightful
reflections by Wheaton College faculty members on the transforma-
tive work of the Wade Center authors.

“In this exquisitely argued, beautifully crafted, and elegantly written


thesis, Timothy Larsen offers a beguiling mediation on incarnation,
doubt, and re-enchantment. With his careful and nuanced focus
on George MacDonald, Timothy Larsen has produced a poised,
sumptuous, and sublime theological essay—worthy, indeed,
of Lewis, Chesterton, Tolkien, L’Engle, and MacDonald. This is
Christian apologetics at its best and from one of the finest
public intellectuals writing in our time.”

The Hansen Lectureship Series features reflections related to the


imaginative work and lasting influence of seven British authors, including
C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, George MacDonald, and Dorothy L. Sayers.
The books in the series are based on the Ken and Jean Hansen Lectureship, an annual lecture series hosted at the Marion E. Wade
Center at Wheaton College, named in honor of former Wheaton College trustee Ken Hansen and his wife, Jean, and endowed in their
memory by Walter and Darlene Hansen. Each book includes three lectures by a Wheaton College faculty member on one or more of
the Wade Center authors with responses by fellow faculty members.
Founded in 1965, the Marion E. Wade Center houses a major research collection of writings and related materials by and about
seven British authors: Owen Barfield, G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Dorothy L. Sayers, J. R. R. Tolkien, and
Charles Williams. The Wade Center collects, preserves, and makes these resources available to researchers and visitors through its
reading room, museum displays, educational programming, and publications. All of these endeavors are a tribute to the importance
of the literary, historical, and Christian heritage of these writers.

Some, such as pagan philosophers and Gnostics, have tended to deni-

The Reformation Commentary on Scripture


collects Protestant Reformation reflections on the
entirety of the Bible, chapter by chapter, introducing
readers to the depth and richness of exegetical
ferment that defined the Reformation.

Each volume contains the biblical text in English alongside the


insights of both well-known and lesser-known Reformers, including
Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans, and Roman Catholics.
By drawing from an array of Reformation resources—including
commentaries, sermons, treatises, and confessions—this
series will equip scholars to better understand the
depth and breadth of Reformation commentary.
I N T E R M E D I AT E

“Why was this not done before? . . . This commentary


series brings the very best of the Reformation heritage to
the task of exegesis and exposition, and each volume in this
series represents a veritable feast that takes us back to
the sixteenth century to enrich the preaching and
teaching of God’s Word in our own time.”

—R . A L B E R T M O H L E R J R.

“The Reformation Commentary on Scripture is a major

The book of Revelation is a remarkable text. A fascinating piece of Scripture as well as


an extraordinary piece of literature, its interpretation has affected our theology, art and

almost entirely avoided from the pulpit.

In this Tyndale Commentary, Ian Paul takes a disciplined approach to the text, paying
careful attention to the ways that John draws from the Old Testament. Additionally, Paul
examines how the original audience would have heard this message from John, and then

The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of the apostle Paul’s greatest
evangelistic successes. However, the church he founded was full of contention, ranging

from questions about leadership to incest. Some Christians were taking fellow believers

REFERENCE | APOLLOS COMMENTARIES

Reading Hosea as Christian Scripture


The prophet Hosea lived through the tumultuous final decades of
the Northern Kingdom of Israel. The Assyrian invasion culminated
in the destruction of Samaria, the end of the Northern Kingdom,
and the exile of many of its people. Hosea called the people to faith
in God through warnings of judgment and promises of hope. He
exposed the people’s infidelity as they turned to other nations, to
their own counsels, or to other gods for their life and prosperity.
Such turning to others for what God alone could give them was,
using Hosea’s most famous metaphor, “whoring.” As God’s people,
they needed to reckon with their God, who had showered them
with care and grace. For Hosea, it was their refusal to return to their
Lord that brought God’s judgment upon them in the form of the
Assyrian invasion.
In this Apollos Old Testament Commentary, Joshua Moon sets the
prophecies of Hosea in the context of the eighth century BC. The
concern of his commentary is the importance of reading Hosea as
Christian scripture, in which we are meant to hear God’s voice as
he calls his people to himself. Moon demonstrates the continuing
importance of hearing God’s words through Hosea, situating
the reading of each section within larger biblical and theological
concerns.

“This series rightly insists on rigorous scholarship but always


in the service of the theology and message of the books
of the Old Testament.”

Each commentary contains an

text. Within the commentary, form and structure
sections examine the context of each passage,
its use of rhetorical devices, and source and

S T UDIES IN CHRIS T IAN DOC T RINE AND SCRIP T URE

Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture, edited by Daniel J. Treier and Kevin J.
Vanhoozer, promotes evangelical contributions to systematic theology, seeking fresh
understanding of Christian doctrine through creatively faithful engagement with Scripture
in dialogue with catholic tradition(s).

Volumes in SCDS explore the synergy between Scripture and contemporary issues, rooted in the classic evangelical
commitment to Scripture as well as the perpetual need to contextualize with creative fidelity. Likewise, these volumes
promote historically informed engagements with the crucial themes of classic dogmatics and contemporary systematic
theology in order to promote scholarship that is theologically competent and biblically literate.
This series promotes evangelical contributions to Christian doctrine by reflecting different approaches, appealing to
biblical theology, history of interpretation, theological interpretation of Scripture, and more. Some volumes engage in
detailed exegesis while others appropriate broader biblical themes and patterns with the ultimate goal of promoting the
constructive engagement between Scripture and Christian theology.

HOW TO RE AD SERIES

We should read a poem very differently than we read


a history book, and we read both of them differently than
we’d read a novel. The same is true when it comes to our
approach to Scripture. That’s 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.

CAN A SCIENTIST BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?


I A N HUTCHINSON
Plasma physicist Ian Hutchinson has been asked hundreds of ques-
tions about faith and science. Are there realities science cannot
explain? Is the Bible consistent with the modern scientific under-

answers a full range of inquiries with sound scientific insights and
measured Christian perspective.

A LAN NOBLE

What should Christian witness look like in our contemporary


society? In this timely book, Alan Noble looks at our cultural

enables us to be the new humanity in Jesus Christ.
