Shopping spree

From a book sale at TTC.

1. Marilynne Robinson, Gilead, FSG. Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

2. Karl Barth, Evangelical Theology: An Introduction, Eerdmans. “Evangelical theology is concerned with Immanuel, God with us! Having this God for its object, it can be nothing else but the most thankful and happy science.” Ah, happy science. I like the phrase.

3. Daniel Boyarin, Border Lines: The Partition of Judaeo-Christianity, UPenn Press. Boyarin is a Jewish scholar who wrote A Radical Jew: Paul and the Politics of Identity (one of the few Jewish scholars who worked on Paul: Mark Nanos, Pamela Eisenbaum, Alan Segal, etc.).

4. Brevard S. Childs, The Book of Exodus (Old Testament Library), WJK. Childs was famous for his canonical approach to Scripture (contra form-criticism) and was associated with the Yale Postliberal school (Lindbeck, Frei).

And Peter lent me Al Hsu’s book, The Single Issue (IVP), which talked about singleness. And Al Hsu got married after writing the book.

    Btw, don’t be mistaken, The Single Issue is for your browsing and reading pleasure, one day I will get it back. It is THE book of my life, next to the Bible.
