News from Eerdmans . . .
- Congrats to Todd S., Vincent A., and Ryan R., the winners of our October Clergy Appreciation giveaway! These folks won a book for themselves plus a book for their pastors from our Clergy Appreciation Month featured collection. Even if you didn’t win, don’t forget to show your shepherd how much you care this month. (And as Rachel, our resident expert on the deepest desires of the pastor, explained yesterday, a book is a great way to appreciate a pastor.)
. . . and Elsewhere
- Embracing the Other, one of our new releases this week, has been featured all over the web recently. Author Grace Ji-Sun Kim was a guest on both the Homebrewed Christianity podcast and the Love in a Dangerous Time podcast, and her book was quoted in a Huffington Post Religion article on transgender people.
- Several Eerdmans books, includingThe Work of Theology by Stanley Hauerwas, were reviewed in the most recent Regent’s Review from Regent’s Park College, Oxford.
- Joel B. Green, Dean of the School of Theology at Fuller and co-editor of the Two Horizons New Testament Commentary series, published a helpful article on building a New Testament library for Catalystmagazine. His recommendations included several Eerdmans titles, among them The Gospel of Matthew (NICNT) by R. T. France, The Gospel of Mark (NIGTC) also by R. T. France, The Gospel of John (NICNT) by J. Ramsey Michaels, and The Acts of the Apostles (PNTC) by David G. Peterson.
- Michael Bird (The Gospel of the Lord) posted a “book notice” aboutThe Story Luke Tells, a “short and sweet” study from Justo González that Bird recommends for adult Sunday school classes and also undergrads.
- Dr. Jason Kanz reviewed The Contemplative Pastor by Eugene Peterson on his Beneath the Crustblog. Kanz says the book is “a joy to read,” even for non-pastors (and we’re sure he would recommend it as a perfect gift for Clergy Appreciation Month!).
