DeaR mINIsTRY LeaDeR, Welcome to The Annual Catalog, 2013 edition. When InterVarsity Press opened its doors in 1947, the publishing vision spoke of introducing ideas that engage the culture and lead the church. As you browse through these pages, you will recognize that same commitment in every title. You’ll also find a lot of extras that should be of interest to you. Whether it’s a vision statement on leadership development in the church (page 10), an introduction to a great new Bible study series (page 15), breaking news on IVP’s acquisition of Biblica Books (page 37) or an insider’s view of editing a Bible dictionary (page 57)—we did our best to make this catalog worth your while! We also want to introduce you to our imprints as a way to help you find the titles most useful to you. At the core of each of these imprints is IVP’s desire to equip and encourage leaders to grow in their knowledge and expression of faith. On the opposite page you’ll find a description of each imprint and its area of focus. Throughout the catalog you’ll see miniature logos next to the IsBns of each title. Hopefully this gives you a bit more insight into the style and level of writing on the title you are considering. Within these pages, you will find inspiration, resources and solutions for serving the church and reaching the world. Browse seriously!

Let’s Redefine Readiness
“Many [ministry] protégés who attend seminary as their sole preparation end up stumbling around the church upon graduation and battling confusion and frustration. Why? Becaue they initially believe they’ve been properly prepared, trained and equipped for the demands ahead, but they soon realize it’s not true. In actuality they were, more often than not, only given information instead of personalized and intentional development. We must join together to shift our paradigms on what it looks like to train and develop ministers, church planters, social entrepreneurs and other spiritual leaders. Our current system does a disservice to protégés when we tell them (or even imply to them) that education is enough, or that it’s the primary path. We all know life doesn’t happen in a classroom—it happens far beyond those walls. And it’s only outside those walls that a more holistic process of leadership development is even possible.”
—from Protégé
978-0-8308-3823-3, $16.00 $12.80

In this new book, steve saccone draws on over a decade of consulting experience to instruct freshman and veteran ministers in a new approach to leadership development. Protégé is your chance to look again at the “leadership gap” and see not an intractable generational problem but a once-in-a-generation opportunity for church renewal.

steve saccone is director of leadership development at The Highway Community in the san Francisco Bay Area, where he trains and develops emerging leaders, staff and volunteers. He also founded and directed the Protégé Program, a global leadership experience for future entrepreneurs, church planters and spiritual leaders. He is the author of Relational Intelligence.

“Our church had Steve consult with us and we modeled our intern program based on Steve’s ideas. What you will read in this book has proven to be extremely effective. . . . This is birthed and written from the front lines.”

Pursuing God’s Will Together
Church boards and other Christian leadership teams have long relied on secular models for leadership practice. Ruth Haley Barton, president of the Transforming Center, helps teams transition to a much more fitting model— the spiritual community that practices discernment together.

“Ruth Haley Barton presents us with a proven—if at times painful—practice that can ultimately take our finite efforts to where our infinite God wants them to go.”

The First Law of Church Planting
978-0-8308-3653-6, $16.00 $12.80

”Through much reflection, reading and many sleepless nights, I’ve discovered that effective church planting requires thinking about the culture of the congregation. ”More than a strategy, vision or plan, the unseen culture of a church powerfully shapes its ability to grow, mature and live missionally. . . . Like gravity, the culture of a congregation can either pull people down to their base instincts or lift people up to their sacred potential. We create culture, and culture re-creates us. ”If we want to create a missional culture in the congregations we serve, we need to understand how the different elements of culture work. The language we live in, the artifacts that we make use of, the rituals we engage in, our approach to ethics, the institutions we are a part of and the narratives we inhabit have the power to shape our lives profoundly. In addition, we need to cultivate an environment that fosters learning, healing, welcoming, liberating and thriving. We do this by yielding to the work of the spirit in our lives by developing communal rhythms of life—grace-filled spiritual practices which engage our senses, grab our hearts, form our identities and reshape our desires toward God and his kingdom.”
—from Creating a Missional Culture JR Woodward (M.A. Fuller Theological seminary) is a church planter, activist, consultant, missiologist, speaker and writer. He is the cofounder Kairos Los Angeles, a network of neighborhood churches in the Los Angeles area, and cofounder and director of the solis Foundation.

Creating a Missional Culture
Missiologist and church planter JR Woodward offers a blueprint for a church in search of a missional culture. Expanding on the biblical principles giving life to the missional movement worldwide, Woodward calls not for small tweaks to the church’s image but for a recasting of the very environment that shapes us.

“You are holding a hard-won treasure. This book is peppered with the kind of missiological insights that only an apostolically inclined leader can bring. JR Woodward has developed an excellent heuristic for leaders to actually make Ephesians 4 a living reality in the local churches.”

Community is messy
The Perils and Promise of Small Group Ministry

Bless This Mess
“I’ve never met anyone more gifted at or passionate about creating authentic community than Heather Zempel. That passion is evident both personally and professionally. Her love for life is absolutely infectious. so is her laugh! And this book is not just an expression of what she knows. It’s an expression of who she is. By the time you’re done reading, I think you’ll see why Heather is so beloved by national Community Church. “‘Community is messy.’ It sounds so straightforward. And that much is universally understood. Why it’s messy and how messiness actually creates the community and what can be done to manage a community’s messiness have always proven to be elusive. But Heather has the guts to step into the mess, to dig around in it, and then step back and find the beauty in it. You’ll never see community the same way!”
—from the foreword by Mark Batterson, lead pastor, national Community Church

978-0-8308-3788-5, $15.00 $12.00

Community is Messy
Drawing on her background in environmental engineering and her pastoral experience at national Community Church in Washington, D.C., Heather Zempel assesses the perils and possibilities inherent in small groups and other congregational environments. The book helps leaders see the “mess” of such gatherings as raw material for genuine community.

heather Zempel is the discipleship pastor at national Community Church in Washington, D.C. Before serving at her church, Zempel served in the U.s. senate as an environment and energy policy advisor from 2001-2005. she has previously published Sacred Roads: Exploring the Historic Paths of Discipleship including DVD leader guides with Threads/Lifeway.

“Honest, practical and rooted in experience, Heather’s direction takes us to those earthy places that we face in day-to-day relational ministry. . . . Embracing this counsel will advance your community forward into deeper expressions and experiences of community. Buy it! Sit with it. Pray through it.”

Read It Like a Book
“A Bible publisher recently told me, ‘If you want to ensure that someone will have a bad experience reading a book, tell them to only read one page a day.’ Whether it is a murder mystery, a romance novel or a book on your favorite hobby, limiting yourself to one page at a time will suck all the enjoyment from reading. But this is what most of us do when reading the Bible. We are used to reading one chapter at a time, which amounts to just a page or two. In doing so, we undermine our ability to get a feel for the drama of the narrative and the inherent connectedness of the various stories. I remember as a teenager staying up late to read the last hundred pages of Gone with the Wind because I was so caught up in the drama. Why not read the Bible in the same way? set aside a few hours to curl up with a cup of coffee and the book of Revelation. If you read it straight through (as the original audience would have listened to it), the depth of struggle of God’s faithful witnesses and grandeur of Christ’s ultimate triumph over evil will engulf you and you will be moved to worship with the angels. In a ‘big read’ of Revelation, all the confusion over signs, seals and beasts fades away; Jesus, the lamb who was slain, is magnified.”

You may or may not be aware of this, but InterVarsity Press is about as geeked out as an organization can get over Bible study. Our very first homegrown book, back in 1947, was Discovering the Gospel of Mark by Jane Hollingsworth, and we’ve pretty much never stopped. Our commitment to being rooted in the scriptures gets expressed in overt ways, as we publish commentaries like The Gospel of Matthew (Resonate), and in subtler ways as we publish books for personal reflection and group discussion like The Story of God, the Story of Us. The Bible problematizes everyday living and cultural issues in books like The Cost of Community; it orients stories of spiritual growth and turbulence in books like After Shock; it catalyzes social change in books like Reborn on the Fourth of July and Go and Do. We even did two fortnights of reflections on donkeys in the Bible right here at strangely Dim. so yeah, we like the Bible here. We like it so much that we continue to publish new Bible studies, on topics and characters and biblical books, every year, as part of our LifeGuide line and in other forms as part of our IVP Connect imprint. And as if that weren’t enough, we like Bible study so much that we give one away every day for free. A new Lifeguide study is posted daily at our Quiet Time Bible study page; it gets you into a passage from scripture and, if I may be cliche for a moment, it gets that passage from scripture into you. so, if you’ve got a little time to kill and you feel like doing some soul-searching and some Bible reading, find a quiet place and give yourself a little “quiet time”—a quaint little term meaning “time alone with God,” most often occupied with prayer, meditation and (you guessed it) Bible study. Before you know it, you’ll be as geeked out about it as we are. dave Zimmerman is an editor for Likewise Books. This article was written for strangely Dim, a blog of publishing updates, daily reflections and other "sanctitainments" loosely associated with InterVarsity Press's Likewise line of books. stop by! strangelydim .ivpress .com

Paul’s Prison letters
understanding the books of the bible

A New Approach to Bible Study
With the acquisition of Biblica Books in January 2012, InterVarsity Press began publishing a new set of Bible studies, called the Understanding the Books of the Bible series, written by Christopher R. smith. This series takes a unique approach, showing that the books of the Bible are real books and are meant to be read as such—without using any chapter or verse notations. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series reinforces the idea that the Bible is exciting and engaging and its books are meant to be savored and experienced. Ideal for group study, these invigorating Bible studies help readers to walk through the Bible in a whole new way. “The typical guide on the market smacks strongly of modernity, encouraging people to scan the Bible for discrete bits of information that can be rationally systematized,” says smith. “The guides in the Understanding the Books of the Bible series take an entirely different approach. They’re targeted at postmodern young adults who will be turned off by a presentation of the Bible as a collection of discrete statements that are rules, propositions and doctrinal assertions, but who will be attracted to the Bible as a treasury of stories, songs, dreams, letters, poems and visions.” The Rev. Dr. christopher R. smith (Ph.D., Boston College) is an author and biblical scholar who lives in East Lansing, Michigan. He served local churches for nearly twenty years in Massachusetts, Ontario and Michigan and is now a volunteer campus staff member with Graduate InterVarsity at Michigan state University. He was a consulting editor for Biblica’s Books of the Bible Bible.

Paul’s Prison Letters
In this new Understanding the Books of the Bible guide, Christopher R. smith walks groups through Paul’s final seven letters (Colossians, Ephesians, Philemon, Philippians, 1 Timothy, Titus, 2 Timothy), emphasizing the dramatic context of Paul’s imprisonment throughout. Each session sets aside artificial chapter and verse divisions, letting the natural outline of each letter take shape.

The Biblical Imagination
For years Michael Card’s music has imaginatively explored the narrative power of the Word of God. now, in the Biblical Imagination series, Card invites readers to enter into scripture as he does: at the level of the imagination. “I agree with those who would be cautious of using the word imagination, for with an uninformed imagination Jesus is merely a figment. But when the imagination is surrendered along with the heart and mind, it becomes a unifying bridge that opens the Scriptures in new and exciting ways.”
—from the preface to Mark: The Gospel of Passion

susan and Rick Lewis, Logos Bookstore, Dallas, TX

Eighth Day Books, Wichita, Ks

Jeff Crosby The abiding value of bookstores The theologian Klaus Bockmuehl once wrote that books are “God’s instruments in the history of salvation.” As a longtime bookseller in Bloomington, Indiana, before joining IVP in 1998, I clung to Bockmuehl’s thesis as I went about my front-line work putting books in the hands of readers. I believed wholeheartedly that he was right on target—that there is something of significant, transcendent value in ideas expressed carefully, artfully, in books. I still do. In my travels representing InterVarsity Press, I continue to find bookstores doing their work in light of that belief, and serving readers like you and publishers like IVP exceptionally well—bookstores like Hearts and Minds in Dallastown, Pennsylvania; Logos Bookstore in Dallas; and Eighth Day Books in Wichita, Kansas. They are shining examples of stores distinguishing themselves through the stocking and promoting of thoughtful books. When Logos Bookstore opened in 1974, there were 25 Christian retail stores in Dallas. Today there are comparatively few, but the store in snider Plaza on the north side of the city still stands, still serves readers. “Our establishing of a niche with a broader selection of books (than simply bestsellers) has helped us weather the storm,” said Rick Lewis, who with his wife, susan, owns and manages the store. “We do carry many of the bestselling titles—they help us generate the capital that enables us to carry the titles that I believe have a deeper impact, a more long-lasting impact.” The familiar injunction from Matthew 6:33 (“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”) guides the work going on at Hearts and Minds Bookstore, owned and managed by Byron and Beth Borger. The Borgers see their store’s mission embodying at least four key characteristics: serving the diversity of the church as a theological principle even more than as a business strategy; equipping students of local colleges in the integration of faith and learning; helping people integrate faith and vocation; and guiding men and women toward experiencing more of God through reading on the contemplative life. “We carry the sorts of books that we think will be useful

for the vision we have of equipping the saints to live faithfully in every area of life,” Byron said. “We keep books on hand that aren’t as popular, but can help folks think through these significant areas of whole-life discipleship.” Eighth Day Books, owned and managed by Warren Farha, has specialized in classic books across the disciplines of art, science, and the humanities since 1988, when the original store was opened in Wichita. “From the beginning, we have not been a typical independent bookstore; we eschew the trendy, and do not carry books solely based on their salability,” Farha said of the store. “Instead, we’re selective, offering an eccentric community of books based on this organizing principle: if a book—be it literary, scientific, historical, or theological— sheds light on ultimate questions in an excellent way, then it’s a worthy candidate for inclusion in our catalog” or store. These and many other stores across the country are doing significant work serving the breadth of the church and their communities with thoughtful Christian literature that can be an essential part of the awakening and deepening and enlarging of the faith of men and women they come in contact with. • • • “The best disciplers I’ve had through the years have been authors,” Rick Lewis said. “Having read these books enables me to sell them. I can say that George MacDonald deepened my love for God. Reading Henri nouwen helped me grow in compassion. C. s. Lewis and John stott sharpened my thinking. Richard Foster encouraged me in the disciplines. The storytelling of Walter Wangerin, stephen Lawhead and Madeleine L’Engle improved my imagination and aided my wonder. Brennan Manning told me God loves me, as I am. I cannot not tell others about them.” If you have a bookseller like this in your area, we encourage you to support them and their work. We’ll all be better off, when you do.

Mentoring the Mostly Grown
“Whether in the desperate slums of Kampala or the affluent neighborhoods of Chicago’s suburbs or the overcrowded streets of Saigon, we stand amazed at the passion with which emerging adults are pursuing radical Christ-centered, kingdom-based visions for change. And, in every country and culture, the key factor that determines whether young adults are thriving or simply surviving is always the same: the availability and accessibility of teachers, coaches, pastors, friends and mentors who are committed to investing in their spiritual vitality.”
—from the introduction to Shaping the Journey of Emerging Adults

Shaping the Journey of Emerging Adults
Rick Dunn and Jana sundene offer guidance for those who mentor twentysomethings. With information on the new challenges of emerging adulthood, the authors call mentors to forgo curriculums in favor of a decision to walk alongside emerging adults into the hope and purpose of the Christlife.

Richard R. Dunn is lead pastor at Fellowship Evangelical Free Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, and the author of Shaping the Spiritual Life of Students. Jana L. sundene is associate professor of Christian ministries at Trinity International University and serves on the leadership core of Life on the Vine Christian Community in Long Grove, Illinois.

“It is a fact that today’s emerging twentysomethings face challenges never imagined by their parents. Discipling them has never been more urgent. . . . Jana and Rick offer a way beyond fads into the depths of life in Christ for young adults. If we the church would face the future, we must read this book.”

Invitations from God
“I have known Adele Calhoun since seminary days, and I have seen her face many of the divine invitations named in this book, as well as help other people navigate through them. She is a wise and godly guide!”
—Tim keller

Postmarked: Heaven
ivp: Why did you decide to write Invitations from God? calhoun: I have watched over-optioned people struggle with their choices. so many good things to choose from, so little time.We want to say yes to everything. As I witnessed the toll of our yeses in craziness and souldepleted lives I wanted to say, “It doesn’t have to be like this. You can say yes to God’s invitations and find an antidote to the craziness.” ivp: The subtitle is Accepting God’s Offer to Rest, Weep, Forgive, Wait, Remember and More. What difference does it make when we say yes to these invitations from God? calhoun: God’s invitations slow us down, unmask our idols, root us in reality, deepen our ability to care for others, transforming us into men and women of character. . . . I believe the church and Christ-followers don’t have to look like our culture. We can be the breath of fresh air, the place of freedom and depth and change for the better.

Hearing God

Da l l a s Willard

Developing a Conversational Relationship with God

Updated & Expanded

Celebrating the Return of a Classic
Learning to hear God’s voice and develop a richer relationship with him has long been a desire of God’s people. More than a decade ago, InterVarsity Press released Hearing God, in which Dallas Willard, one of today’s most influential spiritual leaders, presented his model for the Christian life as “a hand-in-hand, conversational walk with God.” now, inspired by new material from Willard’s provocative teaching at the Renovaré Institute, this expanded edition provides deeper, more comprehensive insight into God’s direction for daily life. Willard invites his readers to move beyond communication with God to companionship with God and enter into the richness of the Way of Jesus. Reformatted for easier reading, Hearing God includes six new scripture meditations as well as subject and scripture indexes to bring readers fresh insight in their journey of hearing God. “Hearing God is but one dimension of a richly interactive relationship,” Willard writes, “and obtaining guidance is but one facet of hearing God.” He places divine guidance in the context of Christian discipleship. In other words, hearing God becomes far more an issue of being the kind of person God calls us to be, not merely doing what he wants us to do. Dallas Willard is professor of philosophy at the University of southern California. He is the author of The Divine Conspiracy, The Spirit of the Disciplines and Renovation of the Heart.

Hearing God
In this classic introduction to the Chrisitian spiritual life, Dallas Willard lays out how to develop an intimate partnership with God and attune your heart to his voice. This revised and updated edition includes new material from Willard’s teaching at Renovaré.

“The best book on divine guidance I have ever read.”
—Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

In the Hearing God DVD, groups join John Ortberg, Richard Foster and Dallas Willard as they discuss the conversational relationship with God. Discussion guide included.

The Challenge of Faith, Patriotism & Conscience

Logan Mehl-Laituri
Foxhole Theology
ivp: How do you approach the difficult topic of war
978-0-8308-3652-9, $15.00 $12.00

and faith? Mehl-laituri: Instead of theology from the sidelines, my approach is necessarily one that is heavily invested in the nitty-gritty reality of combat. I try to be honest about the tragedy in war, but also the beauty we catch glimpses of therein and the hope that we find in Jesus. I insist that to deal holistically with war, we must not abstract it from the lived experience thereof. The most important way to learn about war is to hear real accounts of it, accounts that may very well be grotesque. Only after we grapple tangibly and viscerally with the reality of war will we be able to take comfort in the fact that Jesus has saved us, that war is in fact over, if we’ll have it. In short, my purpose is to describe the rebirth that occurred in one soldier’s life and what is possible in the lives of others, soldiers or otherwise. The military is one way in which to understand the great and abiding joy made possible by the horrific and obscene reality of the cross. Logan mehl-Laituri is an army veteran who speaks and writes broadly about veterans issues and Christian perspectives on militarism and nationalism. He served in the Iraq War as a forward observer/fire support specialist before applying to change his status to conscientious objector. After his discharge he went to Palestine with Christian Peacemaker Teams.

Reborn on the Fourth of July
Reborn on the Fourth of July is the true story of an American soldier who, after a full tour in Iraq, was baptized in the Christian faith, sought conscientious objector status and ultimately left the military with a new assignment for peace.

“Logan Mehl-Laituri is one of the contemporary prophets for peace, decrying the evils of war and declaring the nonviolent love of Jesus.”
—shane claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution

“[Logan Mehl-Laituri] loves this country, and that’s why he challenges its tendencies toward nationalism.”
—Tony campolo, professor emeritus, Eastern University

Why Ivp values multiethnicity
We at IVP sometimes describe ourselves as a “multiethnic” publisher. What do we mean by that? It simply means that we aim for our books and authors to reflect the diversity of the global church, in all its myriad variety and vitality. The Greek word ethne is often translated as “nations” or more properly understood now as “people groups.” Jesus’ Great Commission exhorts us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all ethne. since the day of Pentecost, the church has been a multiethnic body of believers from across ethnic backgrounds and cultures. This is a key dimension of our identity as the church, and it will be so for eternity. Revelation 7 tells us that the great multitude will consist of people from every tribe and every tongue. The more the church embodies this ultimate reality, the more prophetic and powerful our witness becomes. As John stott put it, “We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.” That means that the body of Christ consists of nigerians and norwegians, Americans and Australians, Brazilians and Koreans. All of us bring our distinct cultural identities and ethnic backgrounds to who we are as Christians. As Paul puts it in 1 Corinthians 12, all of us need one another for the body to function. The eye cannot say to the hand, I don’t need you. The American church cannot say to the Chinese church, I don’t need you. so we at IVP have been intentional about publishing authors from various ethnic backgrounds and cultural locations. some of our books focus on the specific experiences of particular ethnic groups, such as Being Latino in Christ by Orlando Crespo, Following Jesus Without Dishonoring Your Parents by a team of Asian American authors, or Being White by Paula Harris and Doug schaupp. Other books explore the implications of globalization and ethnic diversity for the north American church as a whole, such as The Next Evangelicalism by soongChan Rah, Multicultural Ministry Handbook edited by David Anderson and Margaret Cabellon or A Future for the Latino Church by Daniel Rodriguez. Race and ethnicity have been particularly affected by the brokenness of the Fall, as evidenced by the world’s long history of racial injustice, ethnic cleansing, slavery and genocide. Thus we address the need for reconciliation and healing across racial and ethnic lines through books such as The Heart of Racial Justice by Brenda salter Mcneil and Rick Richardson. We also intentionally publish resources that help readers cross cultures well, with books such as Cross-Cultural Partnerships by Mary Lederleitner or Leading Across Cultures by Jim Plueddemann. As we move further into a more globally interconnected era, multiethnicity is simply becoming the new normal. so don’t be surprised to see more books like Real Life by James Choung, The Mission of Worship by sandra Van Opstal, Partnering with the Global Church by nikki Toyama-szeto and Femi Adeleye or Making All Things New by York Moore. These are the voices of our multiethnic Christian community, and we all need to hear from one another if we are to serve and minister effectively in a diverse world.

the more the church embodies this ultimate reality, the more prophetic and powerful our witness becomes.

al hsu is associate editor of IVP Books, acquiring books in the areas of discipleship, spiritual formation, cultural critique, church and mission and multiethnic issues. He is the author of The Suburban Christian.

A Game Plan for World Evangelization
“Patrick is an evangelical optimist who writes ‘in the face of a prevailing pessimism and creeping universalism.’ He combines the synthesizing mind of an analyst with the passionate heart of an evangelist. . . . “For me (and I suspect for many others) chapter 7 is Patrick’s most distinctive and helpful, for it is here that he more fully unpacks the paradigm (he introduced years ago) in which he presents the world’s array of people groups within 15 Affinity Blocs and approximately 250 People Clusters; these are not mere categories of convenience, but a genuine attempt both to reflect field realities and to highlight ethnic connections conducive to mission partnerships and missiological creativity. Patrick’s commendable emphasis on least-evangelized countries and least-reached peoples . . . is counterbalanced by his deep consistent concern for the re-evangelization of Europe and the strengthening of evangelical foundations in the West. . . . “I am delighted that Patrick’s legacy now includes . . . a carefully conceived and beautifully presented ‘game plan’ for world evangelization.”

The Future of the Global Church
What is the future of the global church, and how do we fit into the picture? This book has grown out of fifty years of passion, research, and study beginning with the first edition of Patrick Johnstone’s Operation World. It weaves together the history, demography, and growth of the major world religions including Christianity, giving us a visual and textual overview of the past, present, and future of the global church. This large-format, full-color book includes:
• Data and projections for evangelism in the coming four decades • Critical overview of the worldwide impact of the first 20 centuries of Christianity • Comparative analysis of Christian outreach with that of other world religions • Diagnosis of different Christian traditions today

—from a review by Darrell Dorr, contributing editor of Mission Frontiers
patrick Johnstone is a well-known and respected researcher and author of the first six editions of Operation World. He is also author of The Church Is Bigger Than You Think. Johnstone and his wife, Robyn, are pastors-at-large for the WEC missionaries in Europe.

Exposing Myths About Christianity
Renowned historian Jeffrey Burton Russell, famous for his studies of medieval history, provides an encyclopedia of lies and legends told to defraud Christianity. His work sets the record straight against the new Atheists and other cultural critics who charge Christianity with being outdated, destructive, superstitious, unenlightened, racist, colonialist and other significant accusations.

“Jeffrey Burton Russell is a marvel. An eminent scholar of medieval intellectual history, he has placed his gifts in the service of the gospel, creating in one immensely readable volume an enlightening guide to the Christian experience and a bracing antidote to the follies and willful confusions of our age.”
—carol Zaleski, smith College

“The point of view of this book is nondenominational—or, more accurately, superdenominational. Few will agree with everything in it. I invite you, whatever your viewpoint, to a discussion of what Christianity really is. I present the evidence as clearly and openly as possible. If you are a non-Christian, you are invited to investigate. If you are a Christian, recall that no one ever served Jesus by suppressing the truth. If you are anti-Christian, here is an opportunity to sort fact from fiction. The goal is to dispel myths and promote reasonable understanding of the subject. Welcome all.”
—from the introduction to Exposing Myths
About Christianity

Jeffrey burton Russell (Ph.D., Emory University) is a professor of history, emeritus at University of California, santa Barbara. now an expert in the history of theology, Russell was a Fulbright Fellow, Harvard Junior Fellow, and Guggenheim Fellow early in his career. Among his books are Dissent and Order in the Middle Ages and A History of Witchcraft: Sorcerers, Heretics, & Pagans.

An Unlikely Call to Worship
Ivp: Can you give an example of how science affirms a creator? giberson: The big bang theory has been strongly criticized by some Christians as being an atheistic alternative to the Genesis statement “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The big bang theory, originally proposed by a Christian physicist, was criticized for being a scientific restatement of the first verse in Genesis. The atheistic view at the time was that the universe was eternal. An eternal universe does not need a God to get it going, of course. If the universe had a real beginning, which the big bang says it does, that creates a need for some explanation for how things got started. And this, of course, opens the door to the possibility that God caused the big bang. The big bang invites theological speculation; it does not close it off.

The Wonder of the Universe
If we, like the great scientists of the past, agree to follow the physical evidence wherever it leads, will there be room left for wonder? Through this guided tour of planets and protons, galaxies and gamma rays, Karl Giberson gives us a window into the universe revealed by contemporary science. Most will find it difficult to suppress the sense of a great plan at work—a fine-tuned world provoking thoughts of a creator.

“Readers looking for a clear, accurate and interesting account of modern cosmology and the religious questions it raises should buy this book.”
—edward b. Davis, professor of the history of science, Messiah College

at Gordon College. Giberson has published over two hundred articles, reviews and essays and written nine books, including Saving Darwin and, with Francis Collins, The Language of Science and Faith.

Praise for A Week in the Life of Corinth “If you want to know what it would have been like to live in ancient Corinth, spend a week in the life of a freedman, traverse the olive groves and cobblestone streets, survive the cutthroat politics of a Greek city, encounter pagan priestesses and converse with a Jewish tentmaker named ‘Paulos,’ then Ben Witherington has written the book for you. This short novella, with pictures and explanations of customs . . . brings to us the sights, smells, sounds and culture of Corinth as the apostle Paul knew it.”
—michael F. bird, Crossway College, Australia

978-0-8308-3962-9, $16.00 $12.80

A Week in the Life of Corinth
Ben Witherington III attempts to reenchant our reading of Paul in this creative reconstruction of ancient Corinth. Following a fictitious Corinthian man named nicanor through an eventful week of business dealings and conflict, readers encounter life at various levels of Roman society—eventually meeting Paul himself and gaining entrance into the Christian community there. The result is an unforgettable introduction to life in a major center of the new Testament world. • Includes full-page text boxes expanding on facts of ancient life and culture • Written by an authority on Paul and the new Testament world

“I know of no other introduction to the GrecoRoman environment of Paul’s mission that could also qualify as entertaining ‘beach reading.’”
—David a. desilva, Ashland Theological seminary

ben Witherington III (Ph.D., University of Durham, England) is professor of new Testament at Asbury Theological seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. He is the author of many books on the new Testament, including Women and the Genesis of Christianity and The Paul Quest. He is coauthor (with Hershel shanks) of The Brother of Jesus, a book on the controversial James ossuary.
