pleasing to the eyes

Today I managed to go to SKS before I went to the class in St. Andrew’s and I found a lot of new and interesting books! (or, it’s been a while since the last time I went over there, I guess…)

First, there was this Westminster History of Christian Thought series from WJK: the early Christian era, the Medieval era, and the Reformations era. They looked really interesting to me. I also saw some volumes from Calvin 500 series: Calvin in The Public Square and The Piety of John Calvin. And there were some commentaries (the Gospels) from Interpretation series, reprinted in paperback! (i.e., cheaper) The new volume for the ‘For Armchair Theologians’ series, on Martin Luther King Jr., was also available.

Other new books that I noticed today: Dunn’s New Testament Theology and The Living Word (!), Whose Community? Which Interpretation? (from The Church and Postmodern Culture series), Secret Faith in the Public Square, This Mortal Flesh: Incarnation and Bioethics, Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology of Pope Benedict XVI (!!!), Approaches to Paul: A Student’s Guide to Recent Scholarship (!!), and Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation.

Truly, going to SKS is pleasing to the eyes; but definitely not to your bank account.
