Book is coming

New books are arriving!

1. N. T. Wright, Small Faith, Great God, IVP (2010).

I buy the book only because I am his fan-boy. Obsessions die hard.

2. Ernst Käsemann, On Being a Disciple of the Crucified Nazarene: Unpublished Lectures and Sermons, Eerdmans (2010).

Käsemann was a pupil of Rudolf Bultmann and he was, like his teacher, a highly influential New Testament scholar in the 20th century.

3. John H. Walton, The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origin Debate, IVP (2009).

Reading Genesis 1 functionally is doable enough personally. Genesis 3 is another animal, though. Nevertheless, one must be content with what one has right now.

4. Anthony Thiselton, Hermeneutics: An Introduction, Eerdmans (2009).

This is Thiselton’s umpteenth work on hermeneutics.

5. Stanley Hauerwas, Hannah’s Child: A Theologian Memoir, Eerdmans (2010).

Hauerwas’ memoir, what else?

6. John Goldingay, Numbers and Deuteronomy for Everyone, SPCK (2010).

Goldingay promised to write one-thousand words every day to complete the whole Old Testament for Everyone series, which would complement its New Testament counterpart by Tom Wright. And he has completed writing commentaries for the whole Torah in one year. So far so good.
