News from Eerdmans . . .

  • It’s been a quiet week at Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. . . .

. . . and Elsewhere

  • Paul and the Giftby John M. G. Barclay was reviewed by Matt O’Reilly on the Orthodoxy for Everyone O’Reilly gives an overview of the book’s several sections and notes some of its topics — foremost the challenge of Barclay’s work to the New Perspective — that merit special attention.
  • Grace Ji-Sun Kim, author of Embracing the Other, published anarticle on the WCC Pilgrimageblogabout the Paris attacks and this week’s environmental summit in Paris. “[I]f fear drives us,” she writes, “we have lost. We must gather our courage, make responsible decisions about safety, and then move forward and welcome refugees.”
  • Future Eerdmans author Stephan Paas, whose forthcoming book explores church planting in the secular West, was interviewed byEvangelical Focus about European Christians learning to live as a minority.
  • Joel B. Green, writing about the evolution of original sinforCatalyst, explored Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen’s work in Creation and Humanity (and also mentioned Thiselton’s contribution inSystematic Theology). “The portrait Kärkkäinen paints,” says Green, “emphasizes the universality of human sinfulness, its personal and structural nature, and its character as a disease that pervades the human family relationally rather than genetically, but which does not focus with too much specificity on sin’s origins in our ancestral past.”
  • Charles Camosy, author of Beyond the Abortion Warswrote about pro-life rhetoricin the wake of the Colorado Planned Parenthood shootings for the New York Daily News. He was also quoted in a New Republic article on the same topic.
  • The Psalms as Christian Lamentwas reviewed by Phil Long on the Reading Acts The book, he concludes, is an “excellent contribution to the study of the Psalms if only for [author Bruce] Waltke’s exegetical comments. That the Christian history of interpretation is included is a bonus.”
  • Discovering Johnwas also reviewed by Long, who said it would make “an excellent textbook for a university or seminary class on the Gospel of John, but is written at a popular level so most readers will find it enjoyable.”
