. . . and Elsewhere

  • 978-0-8028-6889-3_Barclay_Paul and the Gift_jkt.inddPaul and the Gift by John M. G. Barclay wasreviewed for the Reformation 21 blog. Alastair Roberts praises the “elegant simplicity” of the book, and says that “after Barclay has followed the implications of his core insight through the history of Christian readings of Paul, prominent texts of Second Temple Judaism, and the books of Romans and Galatians, few should doubt its significance.” Barclay is one of many Eerdmans authors who will be presenting at AAR & SBL. You can find more information about the session on Paul and the Gift — and all the Eerdmans-related sessions — here onEerdWord.
  • Grace Ji-Sun Kim, author of Embracing the Other, published an article on the Sojournerswebsite titled “Strangers in a Strange Land.” Kim also wrapped up a taping with Jesse Jackson for his Upfront show, and her work is featured in the November/December edition of Horizons. Kim is another Eerdmans author busy at AAR & SBL this week: don’t miss the two roundtable sessions that will feature her new book.
  • Speaking of AAR & SBL, Michael Bird published his list of “Things to Do at ETS/IBR/SBL” earlier this week. One of his suggestions is to “ask the Eerdmans folks that on a scale between Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, what is it like to work with Mike Bird?” We’re not really sure.
