Today, the historical significance of
Dr. Martin Luther King has either been
virtually forgotten or has given way to a
slew of one-dimensional caricatures. In
Birmingham Revolution, Ed Gilbreath not
only gives a fresh analysis of an important
chapter of the civil rights movement, he
also thoughtfully reintroduces Dr. King to a
whole new generation.
Carl Ellis Jr., assistant professor of
practical theology, Redeemer Seminary
Edward Gilbreath has written a smart,
thoughtful and contemporary account of
Martin Luther King Jr.s Letter from a
Birmingham Jail. . . . [H]e prophetically
challenges evangelical Christians to
reexamine Kings theological convictions
in light of racial and social class inequities
facing the United States and the world
today.

Ive often said that following Jesus is not
about doing, its about being. Jesus didnt
save me to do something. He saved me
to be something: his child conformed to
his image. Allen Ratta captures the heart
of this reality in this book. Im excited
about the freedom that many will find
in discovering the powerful truths Allen

its sassy Jesus as a refuge from sober
Christians and to make up for the smart

In Disunity in Christ, Christena Cleveland
provides an insightful analysis of why we all
say we want unity but find it so difficult to
gain it. Combining a humble Christian tone,
familiarity with many types of churches
and skillful use of social science, Disunity
in Christ reveals to us those very human
tendencies that keep us divided. Along the
way, Cleveland helps us to see, laugh at and
rethink our very selves.
Thabiti M. Anyabwile, senior pastor,

author of The Decline of African American
Theology
Christena Clevelands book is delightful,
witty and deeply insightful! She effortlessly
weaves her own voice and stories with
compelling social psychological research
to convey an urgent, informed message
that church leaders, educators and lay
Christians will find profoundly useful.

Faith-Rooted Organizing
Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World
Alexia Salvatierra, Peter Heltzel
Since the 1930s, organizing movements for social justice in the U.S. have largely
been built on secular assumptions. But what if Christians were to shape their orga-
nizing around the implications of the truth that God is real and Jesus is risen? Rev-
erend Alexia Salvatierra and theologian Peter Heltzel propose a model of organizing
that arises from their Christian convictions, with implications for all faiths.
An introduction to organizing for faith communities
Author Information Alexia Salvatierra is an ordained pastor in the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. For over eleven years she was
the executive director of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice
(CLUE).
Peter Heltzel is associate professor of systematic theology and director of the Micah
Institute at New York Theological Seminary. He is the author of Jesus and Justice.

through the stark reality of life with an
eating disorder. Her riveting account of
real-life experiences and the hope found

then the welcome outcome of a hard-
won recovery. . . . Lees story is a clear
and victorious validation of the fact that
recovery is possible.

The Lost World of Scripture
Ancient Literary Culture and Biblical Authority
John H. Walton, D. Brent Sandy
Walton and Sandy summarize what we know of orality and oral tradition as well
as the composition and transmission of texts in the ancient Near East and the
Greco-Roman world, and how this shapes our understanding of the Old and New
Testaments. The authors then translate these insights into a helpful model for
understanding the reliability of Scripture.
Reveals modern assumptions regarding literacy and the production of texts
Author Information John H. Walton (Ph.D., Hebrew Union College)
is professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College. He is the author of
The Lost World of Genesis One and general editor of The Zondervan
Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: Old Testament.
D. Brent Sandy (Ph.D., Duke University) is guest instructor of New
Testament at Wheaton College. He edited (with Ron Giese) Cracking

Faithful Conclusions for Virtuous Readers
Exciting discoveries are occurring in the
field of biblical studies, providing insights
for the interpretation of biblical texts.
Walton and Sandy discuss some of these
findings; specifically, how the oral culture
and the biblical literature proceeding from
it were not concerned with reporting events
with a modern idea of precision. This
finding touches directly on the doctrine
of biblical inerrancy. . . . This well-written
volume provides a fresh, careful and timely
contribution to the field of biblical studies
and is a must-read for serious students of
the Bible.

A unique and independent contribution
to the study of modern theology. Olson
has focused upon the diverse reactions
to modernity. The book includes a more
extensive treatment of nineteenth-century
theology, and it engages in detail with
contemporary postliberal, postmodern and
deconstructive endeavors. . . . [Olson]
fosters and encourages a dialogue with
diverse theological options.
Francis Schssler Fiorenza, Stillman
Professor for Roman Catholic Theological
Studies, Harvard Divinity School
In this highly readable and stimulating
volume, Roger Olson navigates the nuances
and complexities of modern theology with
the aplomb of a seasoned scholar and the
sensibility of an expert guide. The result is
the best narrative account of the subject
available today. Indeed, it is hard to imagine
a better introduction to the sweep of modern
theology being written anytime soon.

This is a major work. Whether read in
order to better understand Yoder or as a
book on mission, it satisfies both readings.
Those familiar with Yoder will find fresh
theological developmentsdevelopments
that are perhaps implied elsewhere but
finally made explicit here. The significance
of this book is difficult to calculate, but I
suspect in the future it will become one of
the crucial books necessary to understand
John Howard Yoder.

A Missional Orthodoxy
Theology and Ministry in a Post-Christian Context
Gary Tyra
In an effort to be faithful to Christian orthodoxy and yet sensitive to our postmodern
context, Gary Tyra presents a comprehensive third way between traditional confes-
sional theology and the emergent theologies of Brian McLaren and Marcus Borg.
The result is a humble, contextual theology for the church today.
Examines each of the major doctrines in Christian systematic theology
Presents a nuanced treatment of contextualization in theology
Offers a thorough analysis and critique of contemporary emergent theologians
Author Information Gary Tyra (D.Min., Fuller Theological Seminary) is
professor of biblical and practical theology at Vanguard University of
Southern California. Formerly the chair for the department of religion
at Vanguard, Tyra also has over twenty-five years of pastoral experience
including his last position as senior pastor at Yorba Linda Community

in Mission, Christs Empowering Presence and Defeating Pharisaism, as
well as numerous published papers and articles.

The question today is how the church
can contextualize its message to engage
the culture without watering down the
gospel. . . . Gary Tyra calls the church to
embrace a vision that is both thoroughly
missional and deeply orthodox at the same
time. It is a vision that allows the church
to steer clear of the common mistakes of
overcontextualization on the one hand and
irrelevancy on the other. This is an exciting
book, filled with thoughtful insights and
helpful suggestions on how the church
can be all that God has called it to bea
dynamic community of people living for the
kingdom and impacting the world around
them.

Recovering the Full Mission of God
A Biblical Perspective on Being, Doing and Telling
Dean Flemming
Should our proclamation of the gospel be in words or deeds or both? What do the
Scriptures say? New Testament scholar and missionary Dean Flemming takes a look
at this disputed question. Rooted in the Old Testament and covering the Gospels,
Paul, Acts, Peter and Revelation, Flemming provides a biblically sound basis for
holistic evangelism.
Shows how telling, doing and being relate seamlessly in the mission of God
Offers a nuanced vision of the rich and multifaceted nature of Christian mission
Author Information Dean Flemming (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen)
is professor of New Testament and missions at MidAmerica Nazarene
University in Olathe, Kansas. A missionary educator for more than
twenty years, he formerly taught in the Philippines and Germany. He is

churches in Ohio and Japan.

This is an excellent booka marvelous
contribution to the ongoing discussion
of the nature of mission. With sterling
biblical scholarship Dean Flemming
demonstrates clearly from the biblical
story, and especially the New Testament,
that the churchs mission is full-orbed,
encompassing life, word and deed. The
careful treatment of the Old Testament
story and a wide range of the New
Testament canon should go a long way to
fill out more reductionist understandings
of mission. I hope this book gets a wide
reading.

The Question of Canon
Challenging the Status Quo in the New Testament Debate
Michael J. Kruger
Unlike many books on the New Testament canon, The Question of Canon does not
seek to explain, Why these books and no others? It asks the question, Why is there
a New Testament at all? Was the notion of a canon of literature out of sync with the
earliest Christian movement? Michael Kruger challenges commonly held views on
the emergence of the New Testament canon by reframing the conversation.
Challenges five assumptions of the extrinsic model of the formation of the New
Testament canon
Argues for developing an intrinsic model in which the New Testament canon
emerges naturally from the DNA of early Christianity
Written by an expert in the field of text and canon
Author Information Michael J. Kruger (Ph.D., University of Edinburgh)
is associate professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological
Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is author of several books
including The Heresy of Orthodoxy, Gospel Fragments, coauthored with
Thomas Kraus and Tobias Nicklas, and The Gospel of the Savior.

In this balanced and biblical book,
John Phelan de-escalates controversies
surrounding Christian eschatology (heaven,
hell, divine judgment, the millennium,
Israel, the book of Revelation). For Phelan,
Christian hope is to be found in Gods
promised future, in which all things will be
set right. Here, he argues, is our motivation
for Christian engagement. An accessible
and important read.

Most one-volume, single-author Bible
commentaries or study Bibles are erratic
in their coverage. . . . Craig Keeners work
is an astonishing exception. . . . He can be
trusted in almost every statement he makes,
and even his more interpretative opinions
are consistently well-grounded. Keener has
given preachers and lay Christians alike an
invaluable resource for years to come.
Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary
It is nearly impossible to imagine that
one person could have compiled all the
information contained within this volume.
But Keener has not simply compiled
material; he has mastered it. . . . At every
turn of the page, those who treasure
the Bible will find something new and
valuable.

THE MESSAGE OF THE
PERSON OF
CHRIST
The Message of the Church offers an encouraging
exposition on the church's mission and nature from
select Old Testament and New Testament texts. Chris
Green helps us see that the church has a message, is
the result of that message, and that the church itself
is a message.
Author Information Christopher Green, BD, is vice
principal at Oak Hill College, London. Previously he
served at three churches in the London area. He is
coauthor of The Message of 2 Peter and Jude and
coeditor of a book on preaching titled When Gods
Voice Is Heard. He also edits the Oak Hill School of
Theology volumes.
Robert Letham shows how the Bible, progressively and
in ever-greater detail, speaks to us of its central figure,
Jesus Christ. With clarity and conviction, he expounds
a range of key Old and New Testament texts from
Genesis to Revelation and investigates the main scrip-
tural themes, focusing on the narrative that traces the
emergence of Gods plan.
Author Information Robert Letham (Ph.D., University
of Aberdeen) teaches at Wales Evangelical School
of Theology. He is the author of a number of books,
including The Work of Christ, The Lords Supper, The
Holy Trinity and Through Western Eyes.
