LET TER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Reader,
“Innovative and restorative.” Those two words jumped out at me when I was talking with IVP Academic
author Paul Metzger earlier this year about the course of American Christianity, troubled as it is these days
and likely to be troubled into the foreseeable future. Metzger was saying we will need to be “innovative
and restorative.”

I hope those two words might resonate with you a bit too. Here’s why:

Innovative is a great word to apply to books, because even though we acknowledge being caught up in
traditions and long-established discourses, innovation is almost by definition a requirement for publishing.
Books are for saying something new or newly relevant. Authors and publishers must keep their eyes open for
new ways to benefit readers with their contributions to the conversations that matter most—or they won’t be
in the book business long.

Restorative may bring several things to mind, and I hasten to say that I can’t speak for Metzger himself here.
(Fortunately, he’ll have his own chance soon enough: his manuscript on social ethics is on my desk, and you’ll
see it in the pages of this catalog before long.) On the one hand, it may bring to mind hopes of  “restoring” a
lost ideal, a golden age from which we have declined. But that’s not how I took what Metzger was saying. And
besides, the Bible warns against that kind of thing: “Say not, ‘Why were the former days better than these?’
For it is not from wisdom that you ask this” (Eccles 7:10 ESV).

Rather, we need to be restorative in our doings because we’ve messed things up among ourselves pretty
thoroughly, whether you consider Christians, North Americans, humans—you name it. Our relationships,
our partnerships, our ideas, and our very language are going to need restorative work for some time to come.

We at IVP Academic are committed to that kind of restorative innovation and innovative restoration. It’s
why we’re in the publishing business—so we can throw our collective weight on the long levers of thoughtful
discourse, the kind that really needs a book to bring about. The dozens of books we’re introducing for the
first time in this catalog match that profile, as do the many hundreds from our backlist that you’ll see at
ivpacademic.com.

You might not always agree with everything we publish. (Even we ourselves don’t always, why should you
be any different?) But I hope you’ll find we do a pretty good job avoiding cheap ad hominems and unthinking
tribalisms here. We ask the best of our authors and ourselves, because we know that’s what it’s going to take.

Happy reading!

CULTURE AND CALLING | COMMUNICATION

Transformational Communication for Ministry,


the Classroom, and Beyond
We are constantly communicating. Whether written or verbal,
formal or informal, in actions or expressions, what we say and do
carries meaning that affects those around us. Christian leaders are
called to make disciples by teaching, so how can we make the most
of all our communication to help others become more like Christ?
In Renewing Communication, Colleen Derr shows that transforma-
tional communication needn’t be limited to the pulpit or classroom,
but can include everyday interactions and relationships. She draws
on decades of experience in education and church ministry to offer a
holistic strategy for transformational communication. With particular
care for the specific needs of children, teens, and adults, Derr addresses
a variety of channels, from formal teaching and preaching to small
groups, written communication, and even casual conversations.
Above all, Derr emphasizes the role of the Holy Spirit as the agent
of true transformation who is present in every conversation. Educa-
tors, students, church leaders, and those who minister to any age
group will find guidance to communicate with hearers in a way that
enables life-giving change.

“This is a must-read for every pastor, teacher,


and leader in the church today.”

Revitalize Your Passion for the Sacred Profession


of Teaching
Teaching is a sacred profession to which you have been called. But
sometimes you feel burned out: the relentless pace, the overload of
classes, the grading, the advising, the additional committee work.
Drawing on more than twenty years of teaching experience,
Christina Bieber Lake writes to encourage you to rediscover your
passion for your profession, to help you move from surviving to
thriving, and to remind you why you chose this vocational path.
Creatively structured around the typical rhythms of the academic
calendar, this book offers refreshing and practiced advice about
how to flourish in the midst of the teaching life. Lake also takes on
several pressing questions:
• How do I balance work and family time?
• Where do I fit in time for my research and writing?
• What particular challenges do female faculty face, and how
should they navigate them?
Remind yourself why you teach. Rediscover your passion for
this vocation.

A Holistic Model for Learning and Teaching


How teachers teach is not necessarily how learners learn. Educators
M U R I E L I . E L M E R and D U A N E H . E L M E R
generally focus on content delivery. But much of the learning process
involves affective and behavioral factors that shape learners’ outcomes.
Veteran educators Muriel and Duane Elmer provide a holistic
model for how learning takes place. Their Learning Cycle moves
beyond mere recall of information to helping learners value and
apply their learning in ways that are integrated into behavior and
practice. With insights from neuroscience, educational psychology,
and learning theory, they address how the brain can become more
receptive, how emotional environments affect learning, and how
learning tasks and experiential exercises can help foster the develop-
ment of skills and habit formation. They do so in the context of a
thoroughly Christian framework that emphasizes not just knowl-

The
edge but also character, integrity, and wisdom.
Here are sound avenues for helping your students become the

An Integrative Approach to Evolution


and Christianity
Christians often have a complicated relationship with science—
especially when it comes to evolution. In recent years there has
been an explosion in scientific understanding of evolutionary
theory and its implications for human nature. Yet many Christians
still see evolution as, at best, irrelevant to their faith and, at worst,
threatening to it. Is it possible that adopting an evolutionary view of
human origins can actually help us cultivate a relationship with God
and a holy life?
In Embracing Evolution, Matthew Nelson Hill invites readers into a
constructive conversation about why contemporary science matters
for Christians. Bringing clarity to an often fraught conversation, he
provides an accessible overview of evolutionary concepts and takes
on common concerns about tensions with Christian theology. He
then explores what insights and practical benefits await the Christian
who adopts an integrative approach to evolution and Christianity.
The more we are aware of the complex milieu of instincts, acquired
traits, and environmental influences humans find themselves in, the
better equipped we can be to overcome tempting urges and adopt
life-giving habits. From food cravings and addictions to altruistic
impulses, understanding our biological heritage gives us power to
change for the better. What’s more, as scientific evidence affirms, the
transformation process cannot take place in isolation. Drawing on
the work of John Wesley, Hill considers the questions, What kind of
community will best encourage individuals to live godly lives? and
How do we practically form such communities?

HOW TO RE AD SERIES

We should read a poem very differently than we read a history book, and we read both of them differently than we’d read a novel.
The same is true when it comes to our approach to Scripture. That’s why this series does just what its name describes: helps you
understand the proper way to read various books of the Bible. The authors examine books of Scripture and give you the
background knowledge, literary analysis, and theological input to help you read the book as it was meant to be read.

Beyond the familiar lions’ den and fiery furnace, much of the book of
Daniel seems baffling to modern readers. Many Christians misunderstand
or simply avoid the book. But failing to read Daniel well means missing a
critical part of God’s message to us.
According to Tremper Longman, when we read Daniel on its own terms
and in its original context, we’ll discover that all of the book is easier to
understand than we might think. In this volume of the popular How to
Read Series, Longman brings his expertise as an Old Testament scholar and
teacher to orient readers to a proper engagement with Daniel. He examines
the book’s genre, structure, historical background, and major theological
message before diving deeper into each of the stories and visions.
As we learn how to enter the world of Daniel, we find a message not only
for his generation but also for ours: even in hostile circumstances, God is in
control, and he will have the final victory. Longman draws out this theme of
Daniel for the twenty-first century, finding help for faithful living in a toxic
culture and hope in a troubled world. How to Read Daniel is the perfect
starting point for anyone studying, teaching, or seeking a reliable guide to
this ancient book.

BIBLICAL STUDIES | BIBLICAL THEOLOGY

The Essential New Testament Guidebook:


Introduction, Commentary, and Theology
New Testament introductions tend to fall into two categories: those
that emphasize the history behind the text through discussions of
authorship, dating, and audience, and those that explore the content
of the text itself. Few introductions have integrated the Old Testa-
ment into their discussions, and fewer still are those that rely on the
grand narrative of the Old Testament.
But the New Testament was not written within a vacuum. Rather,
it stands in continuity with the Old Testament. Israel’s story is the
church’s story. In The Story Retold, G. K. Beale and Benjamin L.
Gladd explore each New Testament book in light of the broad
history of redemption, emphasizing the biblical-theological
themes of each New Testament book.
Their distinctive approach will encourage readers to read the New
Testament in light of the Old, not as a new story but as a story retold.

DISTINCTIVES
• A seminal New Testament textbook from biblical theology experts
• Traces the use of the Old Testament in each New Testament book

Taking cues from Genesis 1–3, each author teases out a unique theme throughout the entire sweep of the
history of redemption. The ESBT project functions as a whole in that each theme is intentional and each
volume does not stand solely on its own merits. The individual volumes interlock with one another, and,
taken together, form a complete and cohesive unit.
Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT is intended to be an introduction to core
biblical-theological themes of the Bible—accessible, yet rich in content.

Discover a Biblical Paradigm of Salvation


With Israel’s exodus out of Egypt, God established a pattern to
help us understand the salvation of all his people—Israel and the
nations—through Jesus Christ.
In Exodus Old and New, L. Michael Morales examines the key
elements of three major redemption movements in Scripture: the
exodus out of Egypt, the second exodus foretold by the prophets,
and the new exodus accomplished by Jesus Christ. We discover how
the blood of a Passover lamb helps us grasp the significance of Jesus’
death on the cross, how the Lord’s defeat of Pharaoh foreshadowed
Jesus’ victory over Satan, how Israel’s exodus out of Egypt unfolds
the meaning of the resurrection, and much more.
The second volume in the ESBT series, Exodus Old and New reveals
how Old Testament stories of salvation provide insight into the
accomplishments of Jesus and the unity of God’s purposes
across history.

Biblical Theology for Today’s Environmental


Concerns
Sandra L. Richter cares about the Bible. She also cares about creation.
An expert in ancient Israelite society and economy as well as biblical
theology, she shows how significant environmental theology is to the
Bible’s witness. She then calls Christians to apply that message to
today’s environmental concerns.
Richter is a master Bible scholar. Each chapter draws out a biblical
mandate about humanity’s responsibility to care for the land,
domestic and wild creatures, and people on the margins. She is also
a master storyteller. Well informed on present-day environmental
challenges, Richter includes case studies that connect the biblical
mandates to current issues.
Though modern political alliances may tempt readers to sever
Christian faith from environmental stewardship, in this concise and
accessible book Richter urges us to be driven by God’s values instead.

“The environment is one of the most pressing as well as


polarizing issues today. . . . Stewards of Eden is critically important
as it skillfully and clearly interprets the relevant biblical
passages. All Christians should read this book.”

TREMPER LONGMAN III

“This deeply moving, impassioned, and informed argument for


responsible Christian engagement with environmental concerns is
the fruit of years of careful biblical study and wise application to
contemporary issues. Stewards of Eden challenges, disturbs, and

EXCERPT

A LOOK INSIDE S T E WARDS OF EDEN

The subject matter of this book is, in my opinion, one of the most
misunderstood topics of holiness and social justice in the Christian
community today.

The topic is obviously important, relevant, contemporary, and compelling. It is


AUTHO R
an issue our neighbors (both locally and globally) care about deeply. As a result,
SANDRA L.
RICHTER this is a subject that profoundly influences the church’s witness to the world.

But as I have traveled, written, and spoken on this issue in Christian circles for

more than a decade, I have found that the church is largely paralyzed on this topic. From college students

to CEOs, seminarians to pastors, cattle ranchers to coal miners, Californians to Kentuckians—we the

church are MIA on the issue of environmental stewardship.

Why has the church, historically the moral compass of our society, gotten so lost on this topic?

One reason is certainly politics. Not kingdom politics, but American and international politics.

I think that most would concur that the traditional political allies of the church are not the traditional

political allies of environmental concern. If you are pro-life, it is assumed that you cannot also be pro-

environment. If you are a patriot, you supposedly cannot also be a conservationist. Or to be more forth-

right: in the United States, if you are an environmentalist, it is assumed that you are a Democrat—and

Democrats, supposedly, are not pro-life. If you are a Republican, it is assumed that you cannot also

be pro-environment. In other words, somehow environmental advocacy has been pigeonholed into a

particular political profile and has become guilty by association. But of course, Christians are first the

citizens of heaven, and therefore our alliances and our value system are not defined by American politics.

Rather, our value system (a.k.a. “holiness”) is defined by the Holy One. And as citizens of his kingdom,

ultimately there is only one set of politics the Christ-follower should be concerned about.

A second cause of the church’s paralysis on this topic is familiar to many matters of social concern.

We, the Western majority voice, are largely sheltered from the impact of environmental degradation on

Have you ever wanted a first-century view of the world of the Gospels? In entertaining historical
fiction, splashed with informative sidebars and images, the volumes in A Week in the Life Series

Allowing the light of what we do know to conjure possible events, these books are a fun and
informative journey into the wrinkles and folds of lost stories.
Numerous full-page text boxes expand on a variety of aspects of life and culture as we encounter
them in the narrative.

BIBLICAL STUDIES | HISTORICAL FICTION

The Crucifixion Like You’ve Never Heard It Before


As Passover approaches, the city of Jerusalem is a political tinderbox.
Judah, a resistance leader, plots to overthrow the Roman occupation.
Eleazar and his father, the high priest Caiaphas, seek peace in the city
at all costs. Pilate, the Roman governor, maneuvers to keep order (and
his own hold on power). Caleb, a shopkeeper, is reluctantly caught
up in the intrigue. When rumors start spreading about the popular
prophet Jesus, hailed by many as the Messiah, Roman and Jewish
leaders alike fear unrest and violence during the upcoming festival.
Then, in the midst of this tension, unexpected alliances emerge.
In Killing a Messiah, New Testament scholar Adam Winn weaves
together stories of historical and fictional characters in a fresh
reimagining of the events leading up to Jesus’ execution. Based on
what we know of the first-century context, Winn’s narrative offers
compelling explanations for gaps in the Gospel accounts. The social,
political, and religious realities of Jesus’ world come to life and shed
new light on our reading of the biblical texts.
In a city full of political entanglements, espionage, and competing
interests, the blame for the crucifixion is complex and can’t land on
just a single party. It takes more than one to kill a messiah.

“For centuries, Christians have been taught that the only possible
reading of the Gospels was one in which the Jews, the enemies
of Christ, are responsible for his death. Winn, using those same
sources and informed by the best of contemporary scholarship,
has produced a plausible alternate narrative of what might have

BIBLICAL STUDIES | PAULINE STUDIES

A Roadmap for Pauline Scholarship


In the field of Pauline studies, much has changed over the last twenty
years. Since Ben Witherington III first published his influential book
The Paul Quest, monumental works have appeared from scholars such
as James D. G. Dunn, N. T. Wright, E. P. Sanders, and John Barclay.
The New Perspective is no longer new, and the flurry of publications
continues across a range of specialized studies. Those interested in
exploring trends and issues related to Paul may find themselves in
need of a map.
With Voices and Views on Paul, Ben Witherington and Jason Myers
have teamed up to provide a reliable guide to the major terrain
of Pauline scholarship. They explain and analyze developments
over the past two decades, including the New Perspective, the
apocalyptic Paul, and Paul within Judaism. After establishing the
historical context, starting with the shift in Pauline studies begun
by Krister Stendahl, Witherington and Myers interact with the
thought of recent major Pauline interpreters. They conclude with an
assessment of how these studies have advanced our understanding
of Paul and where further work is needed.
Through a distinctive combination of survey and evaluation,
Voices and Views on Paul offers a helpful service to students, pastors,
and anyone seeking to keep up with this dynamic field as scholars
continue to wrestle with Paul and his work.

BIBLICAL STUDIES | PAULINE STUDIES

A Classic Text Updated and Revised


The theology of the apostle Paul is complex, set forth in numerous
occasional letters, and subject to a seemingly endless variety of inter-
pretations. How should students of Scripture engage the challenging
task of discerning the shape of Paul’s thought?
In Paul, Apostle of God’s Glory in Christ, Thomas R. Schreiner seeks
to unearth Paul’s worldview by observing what Paul actually says
in his writings and laying out the most important themes and how
they are connected. He explores themes such as the inclusion of the
Gentiles in God’s people, the power of sin, God’s liberating work
of grace, and the unity of the church, as well as the often-neglected
topics of Paul as a missionary and his apostolic sufferings.
This second edition is revised throughout and engages with more
recent works on Paul. While thoroughly informed by the issues
of contemporary Pauline studies, Schreiner offers an accessible
account of Paul’s theology that focuses on the primary sources.
Paul, Apostle of God’s Glory in Christ remains a sound, insightful,
and trusted exposition of Paul’s theology that is well-geared to the
needs of seminary students and working pastors.

“This is a delightful book—academically substantive, exegetically


thorough, theologically robust, and spiritually enriching. . . . This is
a must-have resource for pastors, students, and teachers.”

PSYCHOLOGY & COUNSELING

An Important Conversation Continues


Discussing spirituality and religion in the therapy room is increasingly
accepted, some even forgetting that integration of psychology and Chris-
tianity was once a rare thing. Yet even as the decades-long integration
movement has been so effective, the counselor’s lived context in which
integration happens grows increasingly complex, and the movement has
reached a new turning point. Christian practitioners need a fresh look at
integration in a postmodern world.
In Embodying Integration, Megan Anna Neff and Mark McMinn
provide an essential guide to becoming integrators today. Representing
two generations of counselor education and practice, they model how
to engage hard questions and consider how different theological views,
gendered perspectives, and cultures integrate with psychology
and counseling.
Arising from conversations between an up-and-coming practitioner and
her veteran integrator father, this book considers practical implications
for the day-to-day realities of counseling and psychotherapy. Personal
stories, dialogues between the coauthors, and discussion questions
throughout help students, teachers, mental health professionals, and
anyone interested in psychology and faith to enter—and continue—
the conversation.

“Embodying Integration is, bar none, the most exciting innovation


in integration since the pioneer days, fifty years ago. . . . This book

Updated Edition of an Essential Resource on


Complex Trauma
Nearly every professional counselor will encounter clients with a
history of complex trauma. Yet many counselors are not adequately
prepared to help those suffering from complex posttraumatic stress
disorder (C-PTSD), including survivors of child abuse, religious cult
abuse, and domestic violence.
In this second edition of Restoring the Shattered Self, Heather
Davediuk Gingrich provides an essential resource for Christian
counselors to help fill the gap between their training and the realities
of trauma-related work. Drawing on over thirty years of experience
with complex trauma survivors in the United States, Canada, and the
Philippines, she ably integrates the established research on trauma
therapy with insights from her own experience and an intimate under-
standing of the special concerns related to Christian counseling.
This new edition is updated throughout to match the DSM-5 and
includes new content on how the body responds to trauma, tech-
niques for helping clients stay within the optimal zone of nervous
system arousal, and additional summary sidebars.

“Caring effectively for complex trauma survivors—those whose


lives have been deeply shattered—requires a distinct set of
resources and skills. . . . Heather Davediuk Gingrich provides a
well-researched, accessible, and practical book that is honest
about the challenges yet full of hope in the healing power
of God and of well-informed Christian communities.”

In A Multitude of All Peoples, Vince Bantu surveys the geographic

cultural captivity of the church, from the conversion of Constantine A MU LT I TU D E OF
to the rise of European Christian empires. He then shifts focus to ALL PEOPLES
the too-often-forgotten concurrent development of diverse expres-
sions of Christianity across Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
Focusing on the necessity for contextualization and indigenous

INTERCULTURAL THEOLOGY

The History of Activism and Faith in the


Latina/o Church
For five hundred years, the Latina/o culture and identity has been
shaped by its challenges to the religious, socioeconomic, and polit-
ical status quo, whether in its opposition to Spanish colonialism,
Latin American dictatorships, US imperialism in Central America,
the oppression of farmworkers, or the current exploitation of un-
documented immigrants. Christianity has played a significant role in
that movement at every stage.
Robert Chao Romero, the son of a Mexican father and a Chinese
immigrant mother, explores the history and theology of what he
terms the “Brown Church.” Romero considers how this movement
has responded to these and other injustices throughout its history
by appealing to the belief that God’s vision for redemption includes
not only heavenly promises but also the transformation of every
aspect of our lives and the world. Walking through this history of
activism and faith, readers will discover that Latina/o Christians
have a heart after God’s own.

“This book is about much more than the Brown Church. It is about
church, gospel, truth, and justice. It is about me who is brown but
also about you who are not. This is an important read for any who
wish to be faithful Christians in today’s context.”

EXCERPT

A LOOK INSIDE BROWN CHURCH

Latinas/os are Brown. Not necessarily literally and phenotypically Brown, but
Brown in terms of our racial and social positioning in United States history.

Some, like myself, are literally Brown, but we Latinas/os come in all colors and hues—some

are moreno (dark-skinned), some are güeritos (light-skinned), some are subtle in between
A U THO R
ROBERT CHAO shades, and quite a few, like myself, are even Asian. In this sense, Brown is symbolic of the
ROMERO
cultural and biological mestizaje, or, mixture, in Latin America. In the US context, Brown

also symbolizes the racial liminality experienced by Latinas/os as betwixt and between that

of white and black. . . .

Brownness is a liminal social, legal, political, and cultural space that US Latinas and Latinos have inhabited since

the US-Mexico War and the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo of 1848. In exchange for the benefits of land (nearly half

of Mexico), the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo reluctantly granted US citizenship to former Mexicans, and with it,

an implied “whiteness.” At the same time however, through legal and social convention ever since, the United States

has denied full and equal membership to Latinas/os within the American polity. We have been wanted for our land

and labor, while at the same time rejected for our cultural and ethnic difference. When economic times get tough, we

become the disposable “illegal alien,” and are scapegoated and deported. We are wanted and unwanted. Necessary,

yet despised. We are Brown. . . .

As the Brown Church, we take solace in knowing that Jesus, our Lord, was also Brown. As a working class, young

adult, Jewish man living in the colonized territory of Galilee, he also occupied a space of social, political, cultural,

and religious liminality. Geographically, Galilee was a borderlands region where Jewish, Greek, and Roman worlds

collided. As a sign of their cultural mestizaje, Galileans like Jesus spoke with an accent and were bilingual. Politi-

cally, they were ruled by the Roman Empire, subject to oppressive tribute, and dehumanized by imperial laws that

made them second-class citizens in their own historic land. Even among his own people, Jesus and other Galilean

Jews were looked down on as jíbaro, as backwards campesinos, who lived far from the center of religious and economic

power in the capital of Jerusalem. When God chose to dwell among us, to take on human flesh, and to make our

suffering his own, he chose to be Brown.

their faith and humanity’s artistic and cultural expressions.
By drawing on the insights of both academic theologians and artistic practitioners,
this series encourages thoughtful engagement with and critical discernment of the
full variety of artistic media—including visual art, music, literature, film, theater, and
more—which both embody and inform Christian thinking.

THEOLOGY

How Do We Understand Christ’s Work


on the Cross?
In many ways, the death of Jesus Christ on the cross stands at the OLIVER D. CRISP
heart of the Christian faith. But how should we understand the theo-
logical significance of Christ’s death? Should we limit our doctrine of
the atonement to the cross, or is Christ’s work more expansive than
that? How should we account for the violence of this event?
Theologian Oliver Crisp explores such questions around the
meaning of the cross and the various ways that the death of Jesus
has been interpreted in the church’s history—from ransom theory
in the early church to penal substitutionary theory to more recent
feminist critiques. What emerges from this study is a more complex,
expansive, and fruitful understanding of the atonement and its
significance for the Christian faith today.

“Everything Oliver Crisp writes is worth reading. Readers will find


here the fruits of his extensive contemplation of the mystery of
Christ’s reconciling work. . . . This book is a chance to join one of
the most important contemporary laborers in the vineyard
of ‘faith seeking understanding.’”

SERIES | DYNAMICS OF CHRISTIAN WORSHIP

DY N A M I C S O F C H R I S T I A N W O R S H I P
Worship of the triune God stands at the heart of the Christian life,
so understanding the many dynamics of Christian worship—
including prayer, reading the Bible, preaching, baptism, the
Lord’s Supper, music, visual art, architecture, and more—is both
a perennial and crucial issue for the church.
With that in mind, the Dynamics of Christian Worship (DCW) series seeks to

Joining Fresh Theological Research with


Effective Practice
How might our worship recapture and reflect the enchanted world of
God’s nearness in Jesus Christ?
In this first volume in IVP Academic’s Dynamics of Christian
Worship series, John D. Rempel offers a vision for this kind of
transformative worship. A theologian and minister in the Mennonite
Church, Rempel considers the role of the sacraments and ritual within
the Free Church tradition. While the Free Churches rightly sought
to cleanse the church of the abuses of sacramentalism, in that process
they also set aside some of the church’s historic practices and the
theology behind them, which ultimately impoverished their worship.
In response to this liturgically thin space, Rempel appeals to the
incarnation of Christ, whose taking on of flesh can help us perceive
the sacramental nature of our faith and worship. By embracing
life-giving and peacemaking practices, the worship of not only the
Free Church tradition but of the whole body of Christ might be
transformed and become enchanted once again.

“This book offers tremendous encouragement for people in search


of God’s nearness in worship. John Rempel takes his readers
beyond words to gestures, beyond preaching to sacraments. Rightly
convinced that heavenly things are mediated by earthly things, he
challenges us to leave behind the rationalism of the Enlightenment’s
disenchanted universe and to take seriously the truth that the
incarnation places us in a sacramental universe.”

Demonology in Chrysostom’s Soteriology


NET
For many Christians today, the notion that demons should play a role N E W E X P LO RAT I O N S
IN THEOLOGY
in our faith—or that they even exist—may seem dubious. But that
was certainly not the case for John Chrysostom, the “golden-tongued”
early church preacher and theologian who became the bishop of
Constantinople near the end of the fourth century. Indeed, references

CHRYSOSTOM’S DEVIL
to demons and the devil permeate his rhetoric. But to what end?
In this volume Samantha Miller examines Chrysostom’s theology and
world, both of which were imbued with discussions about demons. For C H RY S O S T O M ’ S
Chrysostom, she contends, such references were employed in order to
encourage Christians to be virtuous, to prepare them for the struggle of
DEVIL
the Christian life, and ultimately to enable them to exercise their will as
they worked out their salvation.
Understanding the role of demons in Chrysostom’s soteriology gives
us insight into what it means to be human and what it means to follow
Christ in a world fraught with temptation and danger. In that regard,
Chrysostom’s golden words continue to demonstrate relevance to D E M O N S, TH E W I L L , A N D V I RTUE
Christians in today’s world. MILLER I N PAT R I STI C S O T E R I O LO GY

S T UDIES IN CHRIS T IAN DOC T RINE AND SCRIP T URE

Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture, edited by Daniel J. Treier and Kevin J.
Vanhoozer, promotes evangelical contributions to systematic theology, seeking fresh
understanding of Christian doctrine through creatively faithful engagement with Scripture
in dialogue with catholic tradition(s).
Volumes in SCDS explore the synergy between Scripture and contemporary issues, rooted in the classic evangelical
commitment to Scripture as well as the perpetual need to contextualize with creative fidelity. Likewise, these volumes
promote historically informed engagements with the crucial themes of classic dogmatics and contemporary systematic
theology in order to promote scholarship that is theologically competent and biblically literate.
This series promotes evangelical contributions to Christian doctrine by reflecting different approaches, appealing to
biblical theology, history of interpretation, theological interpretation of Scripture, and more. Some volumes engage in
detailed exegesis while others appropriate broader biblical themes and patterns with the ultimate goal of promoting the
constructive engagement between Scripture and Christian theology.

A Trinitarian View of the Doctrine of Illumination


How can we understand God’s revelation to us?
Throughout the church’s history, theologians have often answered this
question by appealing to a doctrine of illumination whereby the Holy
Spirit shapes our knowledge and understanding of Scripture. Without
denying the role of the Holy Spirit or the cognitive role of illumination,

Seeing by the Light


Ike Miller casts a broader vision of divine illumination and its role in
the Christian life. In his constructive approach, Miller argues for a fully Ike Miller
Trinitarian view of illumination that forms not just our intellect, but
also appeals to the affections and encourages our ethical action.
In order to develop this theology of illumination, he explores both
Augustine’s and Karl Barth’s readings of the Gospel and Epistles of
John, including Barth’s previously untranslated lectures on the Gospel
of John. In light of his careful study of both the Johannine literature
Seeing by the Light
and the theologies of two giants from Christian history, Miller lays out
Illumination in Augustine’s and Barth’s
a doctrine of illumination whereby we are enabled to know the Father
Readings of John
and participate in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Miller

“Ike Miller is one of the brightest young theologians in North


America, as Seeing by the Light reveals. Miller draws upon
Augustine and Barth, in conversation with Johannine literature,
to construct a trinitarian view of illumination that accounts for STUDIES IN
CHRISTIAN

Four Contributions to the Debate on


Humanity’s Fall
“What is this that you have done?”
Throughout the church’s history, Christians have largely agreed
that God’s good creation of humanity was marred by humanity’s
sinful rebellion, resulting in our separation from God and requiring
divine intervention in the saving work of Christ.
But Christians have disagreed over many particular questions
surrounding humanity’s fall, including the extent of original sin,
the nature of the fall, the question of guilt, how to interpret the
S P E C T R U M M U L T I V I E W B O O K S

narratives from Genesis, and how these questions relate to our


understanding of human origins and modern science.

THEOLOGY | OPEN THEISM

Open Theism: Past, Present, and Future


Open theism has reached its adolescence. How did it get here? And
where does it go from here?
Since IVP’s publication of The Openness of God in 1994, evangelical
theology has grappled with the alternative vision of the doctrine
of God that open theism offers. Responding to critics who claim
that it proposes a truncated version of God that fails to account for
Scripture and denies many of the traditional attributes of God, open
theism’s proponents contend that its view of God is not only bibli-
cally warranted but also more accurate—with a portrayal of God that
emphasizes divine love for humanity and responsiveness to human
free will. No matter what one’s assessment, open theism inarguably
has made a significant impact on recent theological discourse.
Now, twenty-five years later, Richard Rice recounts in this volume
the history of open theism from its antecedents and early develop-
ments to its more recent and varied expressions. He then considers
different directions that open theism might continue to develop in
relation to several primary doctrines of the Christian faith.

“Richard Rice’s book provides something lacking until now: a broad


overview of the open theist movement that places it in its historical
perspective. . . . This book is required reading for all who have been
challenged by this dynamic theological movement.”

THEOLOGY

A Conversation on God’s Presence in


Church Ministry
Jesus is present here and now, Christians have always affirmed. But
how are we to understand his present activity in a challenging, post-
Christian context? In what ways is he at work in our congregational
worship, pastoral care, preaching—and even our board meetings?
What Is Jesus Doing? brings together leading thinkers in pastoral
theology, homiletics, liturgical theology, and missiology in a compel-
ling resource for pastors and theologians. Emphasizing the reality of
Jesus both as the resurrected, ascended Christ and as present and active
today, the contributors consider how to recognize the divine presence
and join in what God is already doing in all areas of church ministry.
Contributors include:
• David Fergusson • Will Willimon
• Dwight J. Zscheile • Andrew Root
• Scott J. Hagley • John D. Witvliet
• Craig Barnes • Nicholas Wolterstorff
• Roger Owens • Angela Dienhart Hancock
• Anthony B. Robinson • Trygve D. Johnson
With deep theological reflection, personal stories, and practical
suggestions, this interdisciplinary conversation invites leaders to
remember that the church is first of all God’s project, not ours—
and that this truth should fill us with hope.

HISTORY

A Pioneering History of Christian Study Centers


In the late 1960s and on into the next decade, the American
pastor and bestselling author Francis Schaeffer regularly received
requests from evangelicals across North America seeking his help
to replicate his innovative learning community, L’Abri, within their
own contexts. At the same time, an innovative school called Regent
College had started up in Vancouver, British Columbia. For evan-
gelical baby boomers coming of age in the midst of unprecedented
educational opportunity and cultural upheaval, these multifaceted
communities inspired a generation to study, pray, and engage
culture more faithfully.
In this compelling and comprehensive history, Charles Cotherman
traces the stories of notable study centers and networks, as well
as their influence on a generation that would reshape twentieth-
century Christianity. Beginning with the innovations of L’Abri and
Regent College, Cotherman elucidates the histories of
• The C. S. Lewis Institute near Washington, DC
• R. C. Sproul’s Ligonier Valley Study Center in Stahlstown,
Pennsylvania
• New College Berkeley
• The Center for Christian Study at the University of Virginia
• The Consortium of Christian Study Centers
Built on a rich foundation of original interviews, archival documents,
and contemporary sources, this work sheds new light on this set of
defining figures and places in evangelicalism’s life of the mind.

ETHICS

A Variety of Answers to Today’s Most Pressing


Ethical Questions
Racism. Immigration. Gun violence. Sexuality. Health care. The
number of ethical issues that demand a response from Christians
today is almost dizzying. How can Christians navigate such matters?
What are faithful responses to these questions?
Edited by two theologians with pastoral experience, this volume
invites engagement with these issues and more by drawing on
real-life experiences and offering a range of responses to some of
the most challenging moral questions confronting the church today.
With an unflinching yet irenic approach, this resource can help
Christians as they seek to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly
with God.

“Discerning Ethics demonstrates methodological sophistication,


honest discussion of divergent views, and a solid biblical
commitment. Highly recommended!”
RONA LD J. SIDER
Palmer Seminary at Eastern University

“This volume of essays is exactly what we need in the classroom


today, both in seminaries and college theology courses. Leaving
practically no social issue uncovered, these diverse authors engage
in moral analysis that is theologically rigorous but also genuinely
humble. . . . What we have here is a model of theological
ethics that all Christians must learn from.”

The Reformation Commentary on Scripture


collects Protestant Reformation reflections on the
entirety of the Bible, chapter by chapter, introducing
readers to the depth and richness of exegetical
ferment that defined the Reformation.
Each volume contains the biblical text in English alongside the
insights of both well-known and lesser-known Reformers, including
Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans, and Roman Catholics.
By drawing from an array of Reformation resources—including
commentaries, sermons, treatises, and confessions—this
series will equip scholars to better understand the
depth and breadth of Reformation commentary.

I N T E R M E D I AT E

“Why was this not done before? . . . This commentary


series brings the very best of the Reformation heritage to
the task of exegesis and exposition, and each volume in this
series represents a veritable feast that takes us back to
the sixteenth century to enrich the preaching and
teaching of God’s Word in our own time.”

R . A L B E R T M O H L E R J R.

“The Reformation Commentary on Scripture is a major


publishing event—for those with historical interest in the
founding convictions of Protestantism, but even more
for those who care about understanding the Bible.”

The divine inspiration of Scripture may be confidently affirmed from Paul’s epistles. However,
it is hard to find such an explicit approach from Jesus and the Gospels.
In this NSBT volume, Matthew Barrett argues that Jesus and the apostles have just as convic-
tional a doctrine of Scripture as Paul or Peter, but it will only be discovered if the Gospels are
read within their own canonical horizon and covenantal context. The nature of Scripture
presupposed by Jesus and the Gospel writers may not be addressed directly, but it manifests
itself powerfully when their words are read within the Old Testament’s promise-fulfilment
pattern. Nothing demonstrates Scripture’s divine origin, divine authorial intent, and trust-
worthiness more than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

M A T T H E W B A R R E T T is associate professor of Christian theology at Midwestern

The Old Testament, particularly the Former Prophets (Joshua, Judges, 1-2 Samuel, and
1-2 Kings), has frequently been regarded as having a negative attitude towards foreigners.
This has meant that these texts are often employed by those opposed to the Christian
faith to attack the Bible—and such views can be echoed by Christians.
David Firth’s contention is that this approach emerges from an established interpreta-
tion of the text, but not the text itself. In this NSBT volume, he argues that the Former
Prophets subvert the exclusivist approach in order to show that the people of God are not
defined by ethnicity but rather by their willingness to commit themselves to the purposes
of Yahweh. God’s purposes are always wider than Israel alone, and Israel must therefore
understand themselves as a people who welcome and include the foreigner.

What if large topics such as philosophy, theology, and biblical


studies could be boiled down to seven key sentences each?

The accessible primers in this collection act as brief introductions


to an academic field, with simple organization: seven key sentences
that give readers a bird’s-eye view of the most pivotal truths on
that subject. With engaging, thoughtful, and sometimes humorous
language, these books invite readers to reflect on quotations that
many have heard but perhaps have not explored in depth.

“The conspectus of patristic exposition that this series offers


has been badly needed for several centuries. . . . For the ongoing
ecumenical conversation, and the accurate application of early
Christian thought, and the current hermeneutical debate
as well, the Ancient Christian Commentary will prove
itself to be a really indispensable resource.”

BOOKS ON SCIENCE AND CHRIS T IANI T Y

The BioLogos Foundation invites the church and the world to see the harmony between science and
biblical faith as they present an evolutionary understanding of God’s creation. BioLogos Books on Science
and Christianity, a partnership between BioLogos and IVP Academic, aims to advance this mission by
publishing a range of titles from scholarly monographs to textbooks to personal stories.

The books in this series have wide appeal among Christian audiences, from non-specialists to scholars in
the field. While the authors address a range of topics on science and faith, they support the view of evolutionary
creation, which sees evolution as our current best scientific description of how God brought about the diversity
of life on earth. The series authors are faithful Christians and leading scholars in their fields.

The CPT believes that the contemporary bifurcation between the pastoral calling and theological formation
has resulted in the loss of a distinctly ecclesial voice in contemporary theology. It seeks to resurrect this voice.
Led by the conviction that pastors can—indeed must—once again serve as the church’s most important theo-
logians, it is the aim of the CPT to provide a context of theological engagement for those pastors who desire to
make ongoing contributions to the wider theological and scholarly community for the renewal of both theology
and the church.
Based on annual CPT conferences, the volumes in the Center for Pastor Theologians Series bring together
the reflections of church leaders and academic theologians to consider how pastoral ministry and theological
scholarship might be reconnected once again. The contributors consider several facets of the theme discussed
at each conference, exploring the insights that can be gained from historical examples of pastor theologians as
well as the essential truths from Scripture on the topic.

and Gordon J. Wenham, the Apollos
Old Testament Commentary aims
to take with equal seriousness the
divine and human aspects
of Scripture.
Each commentary contains an
introduction that gives an overview of the
book and an annotated translation of the Hebrew
text. Within the commentary, form and structure
sections examine the context of each passage,
its use of rhetorical devices, and source and
form-critical issues, while comment
sections offer exegesis of the historical and
theological meaning of each passage. The final
explanation sections offer a full
exposition of the theological message.

A D VA N C E D

“At last! A commentary series that combines the best of biblical scholarship with a passion for
the message of the text. Besides, it actually answers the questions I ask when I read the Scriptures.
This series by the finest evangelical scholars is designed for students and pastors who are
serious about understanding the Old Testament in its context and translating its
message for the church in the twenty-first century.”

SERIES | HANSEN LECTURESHIP

The Hansen Lectureship Series features reflections related to the


imaginative work and lasting influence of seven British authors, including
C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, George MacDonald, and Dorothy L. Sayers.
The books in the series are based on the Ken and Jean Hansen Lectureship, an annual lecture series hosted at the Marion E. Wade Center
at Wheaton College, named in honor of former Wheaton College trustee Ken Hansen and his wife, Jean, and endowed in their memory
by Walter and Darlene Hansen. Each book includes three lectures by a Wheaton College faculty member on one or more of the Wade
Center authors with responses by fellow faculty members.
Founded in 1965, the Marion E. Wade Center houses a major research collection of writings and related materials by and about seven

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO EVE


A M A N DA W. BE NC K H U Y SE N
Do women and men have different intellectual, spiritual, moral,
or emotional capacities? Over the centuries, women have read and
interpreted the story of Eve, scrutinizing the details of the text to
discern God’s word for them. Biblical scholar Amanda Benckhuysen
traces the history of women’s interpretation of Genesis 1–3, allowing
the voices of women to speak of Eve’s story and its implications for
life today.

“H E D E S C E N D E D T O T H E D E A D”
M AT T H E W Y. E M ER SON

The descent of Jesus Christ to the dead has been a fundamental


tenet of the Christian faith, as indicated by its inclusion in both the
Apostles’ and Athanasian Creeds. But it has also been the subject
of suspicion and scrutiny, especially from evangelicals. Led by the
mystery and wonder of Holy Saturday, Matthew Emerson offers an
exploration of the biblical, historical, theological, and practical
implications of the descent.

America. Moving to recover important elements in ancestral
traditions of the Americas, he discerns pneumatological continuity
between the pre-Columbian and post-Columbian communities.
With an interdisciplinary, narrative approach, this work offers a
constructive theology of mission for the church in global contexts.

Is a church just something we create to serve our purposes


or to maintain old traditions? Or is it something more vital,
more meaningful, and more powerful? In this introduction to
the nature of the local church, historian and missionary Scott
Sunquist brings us a portrait of the church in motion, clarifying
the two primary purposes of the church: worship and witness.

LUCY PEPPIATT
Does God call women to serve as equal partners in marriage and as
leaders in the church? With careful exegetical work, Lucy Peppiatt
considers relevant passages in Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Peter,
1 Timothy, and 1 Corinthians. There she finds a story of God
releasing women alongside men into all forms of ministry,
leadership, work, and service on the basis of character and gifting,
rather than biological sex.

REVOLUTION OF VALUES
JONATH A N W ILSON-H A RTGROV E
Christians and the religious Right have misused Scripture to
consolidate power, stoke fears, and defend against enemies.
Highlighting the stories of people on the frontlines, Jonathan
Wilson-Hartgrove explores how religious culture wars have
misrepresented Christianity at the expense of the poor, and how

Publishers Weekly Starred Review: “This sobering critique presents


a disturbing yet welcome analysis of how the Doctrine of Discovery
has split American church and society along racial lines.”

In this prophetic blend of history, theology, and cultural commen-


tary, Mark Charles and Soong-Chan Rah reveal the damaging effects
of the “Doctrine of Discovery,” which institutionalized American
triumphalism and white supremacy. This book calls our nation and
churches to a truth-telling that will expose past injustices and open
the door to conciliation and true community.

Punjab, India, at the hands of unrestrained industrial agriculture or the social collapse that it has

the unrelenting abuse of this immense and immensely important estuary via untreated industrial

Third, and perhaps most detrimental, is the theological posture taught by many in the church

that the created order is bound only for destruction. Subsequently, many devoted followers of Jesus have come to believe that it is

ethically appropriate to use the earth’s resources as aggressively as possible to accomplish what really matters—the conversion of

souls. The end result? The church, particularly the evangelical wing of the church, has inadvertently dismissed the issue of environ-

mental stewardship as peripheral (or even alien) to the theological commitments of the Bible.

This book is my contribution to exposing and uprooting these misconceptions that have rendered the church silent on a critical

concern. As a longtime professor of biblical studies, a professional exegete, an author, a theologian, and—most importantly—a

committed Christian, my objective in this little book is to demonstrate via the most authoritative voice in the church’s life, that

of Scripture, that the stewardship of this planet is not alien or peripheral to the message of the gospel. Rather, our rule of faith and

praxis has a great deal to say about this subject. And what the Bible has to say is that the responsible stewardship of creation is not

only an expression of the character of our God; it is the role he entrusted to those made in his image.

Many devoted followers of Jesus have come to believe that it is ethically appropriate to use the earth’s
resources as aggressively as possible to accomplish what really matters—the conversion of souls. The end
result? The church, particularly the evangelical wing of the church, has inadvertently dismissed the issue of
environmental stewardship as peripheral (or even alien) to the theological commitments of the Bible.
