LET TER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Reader,

You see here a snapshot of the immediate future. The catalog you hold in your hands introduces you to the
eclectic mix of books forthcoming from IVP Academic in the late winter and spring of 2018. There’s everything
here from psychological research and Hip Hop missiology to medieval mysticism and a brand-new translation of
the Old—or make that the First—Testament.
But there are some other aspects of the future that are present though not so obviously visible in these pages:
• It’s a subtle difference, but you may appreciate how stuffed this issue is with new titles and series updates.
That’s because we’ve now synced our catalogs to the rhythm of the academic year: one for the fall, one for
the spring. We hope that will serve your needs for both teaching and research in the years ahead.
• We’re now all ramped up with some key personnel changes, and I’m particularly delighted to introduce you
to Anna Moseley Gissing, our new academic editor, who specializes in biblical studies and related fields.
(Read my interview with Anna on p. 7.) I love the depth and expertise of our team, from acquisitions all the
way through to sales, and I’m confident you’ll see remarkable things from them for years to come.
• We give you a taste of InterVarsity Press’s extensive backlist toward the end of this catalog, though we have
literally thousands of titles in print and can’t possibly show them all here. But one book always builds on
predecessors, and it’s exciting to see how each of these new titles connects to, expands on, and deepens the
insights of countless others. We hope you’ll explore the possibility for ongoing “conversation” among books
at your favorite bookstore or ivpress.com.
• Most significantly, what you see when you look through a publisher’s catalog—if you sharpen your mind’s
eye—is a whole community of readers awaiting these pages. We face a present challenging in many ways,
but through the powerful ideas in books like these, we students of the way of Jesus can be wisely instructed,
honestly encouraged, and formed together for good.
I hope you’ll agree it looks like a promising future.

Yours,

Jon Boyd
Editorial Director, IVP Academic

BIBLICAL STUDIES | OLD TESTAMENT

A Fresh Translation of the Old Testament

Most translations bend the text toward us. They make the rough places
smooth and the odd bits more palatable to our modern sensibilities. In
every translation something is gained and something is lost.
In The First Testament: A New Translation, John Goldingay inter-
J O H N G O L D I N G AY rupts our sleepy familiarity with the Old Testament. He sets our
expectations off balance by inviting us to hear the strange accent of
the Hebrew text. We encounter the sinewed cadences of the Hebrew
Bible, its tics and its textures. Translating words consistently, word by
THE first word, allows us to hear resonances and see the subtle figures stitched
into the textual carpet. In a day of white-bread renderings of the Bible,
TESTAMENT here is a nine-grain translation with no sugar or additives.
The First Testament is an invitation to read the sacred text through
the eyes of one of the most accomplished Old Testament scholars
in the English-speaking world today. With introductions to each
book, this is an attractive translation for the classroom as much as for
personal study and enjoyment.

“This translation will be enormously useful to ordinary but serious


Bible readers precisely because it strives to stay close to the Hebrew
A N E W T R A N S L AT I O N
and Aramaic originals and does not aim for clarity at any price—
especially where the text itself may be unclear.”

—I A I N P R O VA N
Regent College, Vancouver

“John Goldingay has a deep love for the Hebrew text


of the Scriptures and a lifetime’s familiarity with all
INTRODUCTORY its textures and nuances. Along with that, he brings a simple
JUNE 2018
and direct turn of phrase that brings the text to life in new ways.”

The Archetype of Biblical Deliverance

Israel’s exodus from Egypt is the Bible’s enduring emblem of deliver-


ance. More than just an epic moment, the exodus shapes the telling of BRYAN D. ESTELLE
Israel’s and the church’s gospel. From the blasting furnace of Egypt,
imagery pours forth. In the Song of Moses Yahweh overcomes the
Egyptian army, sending them plummeting to the bottom of the sea.
But the exodus motif continues as God leads Israel through the
wilderness, marches to Sinai and on to Zion. It fires the psalmist’s ECHOES
poetry and inspires Isaiah’s second-exodus rhapsodies. As it pulses
through the veins of the New Testament, the Gospel writers hear of
exodus resonances from Jesus’ birth to the gates of Jerusalem. Paul
casts Christ’s deliverance in exodus imagery, and the Apocalypse
EXODUS
reverberates with exodus themes.
In Echoes of Exodus, Bryan Estelle traces the motif as it weaves Tracing a Biblical Motif
through the canon of Scripture. Wedding literary readings with
biblical-theological insights, he helps us weigh again what we know
and recognize anew what we have not seen. More than that, he intro-
duces us to the study of quotation, allusion, and echo, providing a
firm theoretical basis for hermeneutical practice and understanding.

“Informed by classic Reformed theology and the most modern


methods, Bryan Estelle presents what may be the most
careful and extensive study of the exodus available.”

Second-Century Influence on Christian History

Christianity in the twenty-first century is a global phenomenon. But


in the second century, its future was not at all certain.
Initially Christianity possessed little social or cultural influence
and found itself fighting for its life. Factions contested the nature of
the gospel, and Christianity was forming structures of leadership
and worship. A core of apostolic texts was emerging as authoritative.
But it was the challenges, obstacles, and transitions faced by Chris-
tians in the second century that, in many ways, would determine the
future of the church for the next two millennia. It was a time when
Christianity stood at a crossroads.
Michael Kruger’s introductory survey examines how Christianity
took root in the second century, how it battled to stay true to the
vision of the apostles, and how it developed in ways that would shape
both the church and Western culture over the next two thousand
years. Christianity at the Crossroads provides an accessible and
informative look at the complex and foundational issues faced by an
infant church still trying to determine its identity.

“The second century has always been the black box


of Christian history. Now with this well-researched yet highly
accessible book, Kruger recovers important flight data that shows
just how crucial this overlooked trajectory is to understanding
Christian history and even Christianity as we know it today.”

A Study of God’s Goodness

“Taste and see that the Lord is good,” the Psalmist writes (Ps 34:8).
And to those who called him good, Jesus said, “No one is good—
except God alone” (Mk 10:18).
Christopher R. J. Holmes explores the divine attribute of God’s
goodness through a theological interpretation of the Psalter that
The Lord Is Good

engages with the church’s rich tradition, including Augustine and


Christopher R. J. Holmes Barth, but especially Aquinas. He contends that in the very depths of
God’s being, God is goodness itself and that goodness is preeminent
among the divine attributes.
Leading us in this journey through the Psalms and the church’s
tradition, Holmes helps us to understand what it means to make that
The Lord Is Good simple affirmation: God is good.

Seeking the God of the Psalter

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.

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.

PR A I SE FO R T HEO LO G Y A ND T HE M IR R O R O F S CR IP T U R E

“A deft treatment of the relationship between Scripture and evangelical


theology, this book doubles as a lucid, winsome introduction to classic evangelical
theology as a whole. Readers will encounter here not only a wide-ranging discussion of
hermeneutical matters but also a clear-eyed, calm, faithful testimony to the
‘mere’ evangelical truth of God’s act in Jesus Christ for the life of the world.”

Is Spiritual Transformation Possible Through


Online Education?

Technological innovation has changed nearly everything about


human life, including how we teach and learn.
Many Christian professors and institutions have embraced new
technologies, especially online education. But as followers of Jesus
Christ, we face the same call to grow in our faith. So how should
we think about and approach Christian education in light of new
technologies? Is it possible for us to grow spiritually through our
digital communities?
Steve Lowe and Mary Lowe, longtime proponents of online
education, trace the motif of spiritual growth through Scripture
and consider how students and professors alike might foster digital
ecologies in which spiritual growth—even transformation—can
take place.

Practical Wisdom for Clinical Supervisors

Is there more to clinical supervision than our current theories and


methods can provide? Whether we intend them to be or not, our
mentoring practices are personally formative for supervisees and
supervisors alike. Developing Clinicians of Character grounds our
thinking in the historic and contemporary wisdom of virtue ethics
and grows out of a love for the practice of clinical supervision. It
aims to identify and strengthen supervision’s important role for
character formation in the classroom, in continuing education for
practitioners, and in clinical settings.
Dr. Terri S. Watson welcomes and equips you to excel in “the
helping profession within a helping profession” as you provide
clinical supervision for other mental health workers in counseling,
psychology, and marriage and family therapy. After an overview of
the role of character formation in clinical supervision, she examines
each classical Christian virtue in turn, its corresponding profes-
sional ethical aspiration, and how we can use the practices of clinical
supervision and spiritual formation together to foster character
formation for Christian maturity and Christlikeness.

“This is a must read for any clinical supervisor who embraces


the Christian tradition, but it likely would be of interest
and value to those of other faith traditions as well.”

PSYCHOLOGY | SEXUALIT Y

Personal, Practical Research on Sexual Identity


Among Christian College Students

Students arrive on campus with various boxes of belongings to unpack,


some heavy, some tidy, some more valuable, some more private. For
many students, two of these boxes could be labeled “My Faith” and
“My Sexuality”—and these two can be among the most cumbersome

INTERCULTURAL STUDIES | RACE & MISSIOLOGY

Challenging Colonialist Impulses in Urban Missions

North American domestic missions are now situated in a complex


landscape of changing faith, ethnic diversity, and racial unrest. But
most missiological approaches continue under colonialist assump-
tions and lack the cultural competency to navigate new realities.
Missiologist Daniel White Hodge explores the contours of post–
civil rights contexts and focuses on Hip Hop theology as a frame-
work for radical engagement of emerging adult populations. He
critiques the impaired missiology of imperialist and white suprema-
cist approaches to modern urban and short-term missions. With
keen cultural exegesis of the wild, he explores the contours of a more
contextualized Hip Hop Jesus. Reexamining the importance of race
and ethnicity in mission, Hodge offers theological space for protest
and social disruption and suggests conceptual models for domestic
missions within a growing multiethnic demographic.
Grounded in Hip Hop studies and youth ministry, Hodge constructs
a hybridity of lived missiology where dissent and disruption open new
possibilities for Christian faith in the twenty-first century.

“Hodge introduces us to the prophets and poets who have


discovered God at the margins and invites us to take a seat and
learn from them. . . . The Hip-Hop church is good news for us all.”

Encountering philosophy of religion for the first time, we are like

But our cautious intrigue turns to confidence as Anthony Thiselton

MARINER Poet and theologian Malcolm Guite leads readers on a journey with
Coleridge, whose own life paralleled the experience of the mariner. On

CULTURE | GENDER VIOLENCE

The Startling Reality of Violence Against Women

Across the globe, acts of violence against women produce more


ELAINE STORKEY deaths, disability, and mutilation than cancer, malaria, and traffic
accidents combined.
The truth is that violence on such a scale could not exist were it not
structured in some way into the very fabric of societies and cultures
themselves, supported by deep assumptions about the value of
women, or justification of the use of power. In many cultures such
assumptions are reiterated every day in the absence of legal protec-
tion for women, or indifference toward issues of human rights.
In Scars Across Humanity, Elaine Storkey offers a rigorously
researched overview of this global pandemic. From female infan-
ticide and child brides to domestic abuse, prostitution, rape, and
honor killings, violence against women occurs at all stages of life,
and in all cultures and societies. It seems ambitious to hope that we
can find an answer to this question, but if violence to women is ever
to be eliminated, we need to know what we are up against.

U N D E R S TA N D I N G A N D “Scars Across Humanity is a bold and invaluable effort to educate


us on the sprawling global humanitarian crisis that is destroying the

CALLING | BUSINESS ETHICS

Third Edition of a Classic Christian Business Text

When the daily business news breaks away from stories of profit and
loss, it often shines a spotlight on ethical failures. But Christians
aim to be ethical in all the areas of daily life and work—not just A L E C H I L L
when the spotlight is on them. For those facing the many questions
and quandaries of doing business with ethical integrity, Alec Hill
offers a place to begin. 3RD EDITION
In this third edition of a popular textbook on business ethics, Hill
carefully explores the foundational Christian concepts of holiness,
justice, and love. These keys to God’s character, he argues, are also
the keys to Christian business ethics. Hill then shows how some
common responses to business ethics fall short of a fully Christian
mindset. Using penetrating case studies on such pressing topics as
employer-employee relations, discrimination and affirmative action,
and environmental damage, he clothes principles in concrete
business situations.
Updated throughout, and with a new chapter on international
business, this new edition of Just Business is an excellent introduction BU SI N E S S
to business ethics for students, and a timely refresher for men and
women already in the marketplace.

NOW IN PAPERBACK

THE Wright boldly maintains that there is a missional basis for the Bible! The entire Bible is
generated by and all about God’s mission.

MISSION In order to understand the Bible, we need a missional hermeneutic, an interpretive perspec-

GOD
tive in tune with this great missional theme. We need to see how the familiar bits and pieces fit

OF into the grand narrative of Scripture.


Beginning with the Old Testament and its groundwork for understanding who God is, what
he has called his people to be and do, and how the nations fit into God’s mission, Wright gives
us a new hermeneutical perspective on Scripture. This perspective provides a solid and expan-
sive basis for holistic mission. God’s mission is to reclaim the world—including the created
order—and God’s people have a designated role to play.

within the whole of the Old Testament canon. Readers with little prior background
will find House’s thematic surveys particularly helpful for coming to grips with basic
biblical content as well as for probing the theological nuances of individual parts of the
canon. The book concludes by forging a set of summary statements concerning God and
his character, the people of God, and links between the Old and New Testaments that
suggest avenues for the exploration of a full biblical theology.
Old Testament Theology offers an overview of the discipline and a fair treatment of differing

PRAISE FOR APOSTOLICIT Y SERIES EDITORS


“This is a highly original work in the theology of Christian
mission that deserves the serious attention of missiologists,
S C O T T W. S U N Q U I S T
theologians, and New Testament scholars. . . . The diversity of
world Christianity today is thus not a problem for the apostolicity
of the church, but rather integral to its very being as the body of AMOS YONG
Christ, the one sent into the world to redeem it.”

Reformation Voices on Jeremiah’s Prophecy


Old Testament

XI The prophetic ministry of Jeremiah, described in the Old Testament


JEREMIAH, books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, took place during a time of

chaos and tragedy for the people of Israel: the fall of Jerusalem, the
destruction of the temple, and the exile to Babylon. Yet, in the midst
of this loss and in hope of the restoration of God’s people, Jeremiah
Old Testament is able to declare: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his
XI mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is
your faithfulness” (Lam 3:22-23).
Reflecting on these verses, Reformation commentators, who were
Jeremiah,

century, heard not only hope for the renewal of Israel, but prophetic
promise for the coming of the Messiah. Lutheran theologian and
pastor Nikolaus Selnecker wrote, “Is not what Jeremiah says immeas-

saying to me? That is a strong Amen, when the spirit of the heart knows
and can say, ‘God hears me, I know it. My heart tells me. I do not doubt
God’s grace. I am a child of God. He is my father and will help me.’”

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.
president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“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.”

COMMENTARY | OLD & NEW TESTAMENT

In many ways, Proverbs is similar to the wisdom literature of the wider ancient Near East.
However, while the book initially appears to consist primarily of practical advice, wisdom
Tyndale Old Testament
Commentaries is grounded in a relationship with God.

TOTC In this replacement Tyndale Commentary, Lindsay Wilson shows how the first nine
chapters provide a reading guide for the many proverbs in subsequent chapters, and how
the fear of the Lord, choosing wisdom not folly, and having our characters formed by
wisdom are crucial for understanding Proverbs as Christian Scripture and living out our

Proverbs faith in daily life.

extraordinary piece of literature, its interpretation has affected our theology, art, worship,

and even international politics. Yet it is widely neglected in the church and almost
entirely avoided from the pulpit.
TNTC
In this Tyndale Commentary, Ian Paul takes a disciplined approach to the text, paying
careful attention to the ways that John draws from the Old Testament. Additionally, Paul
examines how the original audience would have heard this message from John, and then

Revelation draws helpful comments for contemporary reflection.

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.”

on the whole of Proverbs, but has also included two helpful study aids: a set
= of subject guides that bring together teaching scattered throughout the book,
and a short concordance that helps locate lost sayings (in territory notori-

P ro v er bs ously hard to search) and encourages further subject studies. In short, this
P r o ve r b s

volume is a wise person’s guide to wisdom.

The Old Testament commentaries of Derek Kidner have been a standard for
a generation, modeling conciseness, clarity, and insight. Those who read his
books find in them the marks of both professor and pastor with his even-
handed scholarship as well as his devotional insight. Knowing the honored
place Kidner’s work has had in the lives of so many students, teachers, lay
K id n e r

people, and pastors, IVP is now proudly offering his commentary titles as
part of the Kidner Classic Commentaries, for future generations to read,

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.

Spectrum Multiview Books offer a range of viewpoints


on academic topics about which Christians clearly disagree.
The unique format, pioneered by IVP in 1977, gives proponents
of major positions an opportunity to make their case. Each of
the other contributors then offers a brief response, helping
Christians think more carefully about what they believe
and appreciate the perspectives of others.

Do we have anything in common with the bad guys of the Bible? In
this fictionalized narrative, JR. Forasteros reintroduces us to some
of the most villainous characters in Scripture, with figures such as
Cain, Jezebel, King Herod, and even Satan serving as cautionary
tales of sin and temptation. Take a fresh look at the scoundrels of
Scripture with this vivid mix of story and biblical exposition.

Tom Wright invites readers to consider the crucial ways in which the
Christian gospel challenges and subverts the intellectual, moral, and
political values of contemporary culture. He gives a vigorous critique
of common cultural assumptions and examines three defining
characteristics of our time—neo-gnosticism, neo-imperialism,
and postmodernity.

GOD IN PUBLIC
N . T. W R IG H T

What has Christianity to do with power? What can Christians


do to act as the voice of the voiceless? Tom Wright’s latest book
demonstrates the many ways in which faithful exegesis of Scripture
can throw fresh light—God’s light—on the great philosophical
and ethical problems of our day.

N . T. W R IG H T
“I’m spiritual but not religious.” It’s a common phrase, but what
does this “spirituality” consist of? Tom Wright argues that people
are often simply reverting to forms of ancient paganism similar to
those that confronted the earliest Christians, and he shows us how
a better understanding of God as Trinity can breathe fresh life into
our understanding and preaching of the gospel today.

sixteen visions of the passion of Christ. As a result of these visions,
she dedicated the rest of her life to solitary prayer and wrote down
the content of the visions, which became this classic work of
Christian spirituality.

FR A NCIS DE SA LES
Francis de Sales was Bishop of Geneva in the early seventeenth
century. He was known as a preacher, evangelizer, and spiritual
director, and he founded the congregation of the Visitation of Holy
Mary. He states that anyone with courage and determination can
live in the world without being influenced by its spirit, and he guides
the reader in living a life of true devotion.

Jesus was truly and completely God incarnate, so he must have
experienced everything that makes us human. How did Jesus
experience human sexuality, and what was his attitude towards
it in himself and others? Andy Angel examines the actions and
sayings of Jesus in the Gospels in order to better understand the
historical Jesus as a fully human being.

INVISIBLE WORLDS
PETER M ARSHALL

How did traditional beliefs about the supernatural change as a result

consequences? Following a masterly interpretative introduction,
Peter Marshall traces the effects of the Reformers’ assaults on
established beliefs about the afterlife.

Most histories of Church of England liturgy begin in the 1530s.
However, the real history of the Book of Common Prayer begins
with the Elizabethan Settlement in 1559. The only revision of any
note was that of 1662, and this revision lasted without challenge
until the nineteenth century. This study concentrates on 1559 until
the Report of the Royal Commission in 1906, which paved the way
for liturgical revision.

If Christians still believe they have have good news in the sphere
of sexual ethics, then two big tasks lie ahead. Our first priority
is to work out what has gone so badly wrong. And then we must
offer a better story, one that fires the imagination with such force
that people will say, “‘I want that to be true.’” This book offers a
confident, biblically rooted moral vision which needs to be shared
with prayer and courage.

A VOICE TO BE HE ARD
R ICH AR D HIGGINSON
A N D K I NA ROBERTSH AW

Christian entrepreneurs are innovative followers of Christ who


make a major contribution to society through the companies
they run, the products they make, and the people they influence.
Theological educator Richard Higginson and former retail entre-
preneur Kina Robertshaw worked together on this groundbreaking
study based on interviews with fifty entrepreneurs. They show how
people running their own businesses are exercising crucial roles in
building God’s kingdom.
