I was virtually flipping through the electronic version of the IVP Academic Spring 2014 catalog and these are the titles that caught my eye:
Theology Questions Everyone Asks: Christian Faith in Plain Language by Gary M. Burge & David Lauber (editors)
While books about doctrine supply description and analysis of the classic questions of the faith, they often miss the contemporary questions on the minds of readers. This book fills that gap. Organized around the key topics of Jesus, the Bible, church, the Holy Spirit, evil, salvation and hope, the sometimes-provocative questions on these topics aim to ring true with the lived experience of real people. Even more, they look to inspire reflection, debate, disagreement, and above all, engagement in what the Christian faith is all about.
John 1-12 Reformation Commentary on Scripture by Craig S. Farmer (editor)
In this volume, Craig Farmer expertly guides readers through Reformation meditation on these themes and many others as they are unpacked in the first twelve chapters of the Gospel of John, from the Prologue to Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Here you will find a rich mosaic of reflection on the Gospel of John by a variety of significant well-known and lesser-known figures among the Reformed, Lutherans, Radicals and Roman Catholics. Farmer has done justice to the depth and nuance of the work of these Reformation-era pastors and scholars by drawing from a range of genres–extensive commentary, brief annotations, impassioned sermons, official confessions, and careful doctrinal and practical treatises.
Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity by Angelo Di Berardino (general editor)
This 3-volume encyclopedia, produced by the Institutum Patristicum Augustinianum, comprises 3,220 entries by a team of 266 scholars from 26 countries, covering 8 centuries of the Christian church and addressing such topics as archaeology, art and architecture, biography, culture, doctrine, ecclesiology, geography, history, philosophy, and theology.
Take a look at the catalog for yourself. Leave a comment sharing which books you’d like to add to your library from the IVP Academic Spring 2014 catalog.
