News from Eerdmans . . .
It’s been a quiet week at Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.
. . . and elsewhere
- America has chosen Lamin Sanneh’s Summoned from the Margin: Homecoming of an African as the October selection for its Catholic Book Club, explaining, “In an age in which individuals and churches too-often reject interfaith dialogue in favor of hate speech, protests or violence, Sanneh’s voice is a welcome one, respectful of all faiths and infused with refreshing honesty.”
- Wesley Granberg-Michaelson (Unexpected Destinations: An Evangelical Pilgrimage to World Christianity) has been named a distinguished visiting scholar at the Library of Congress’s John W. Kluge Center to “conduct research for a forthcoming book on the impact of major demographic changes in the Christian world.”
- Zenit has posted an interview with Ralph Martin (Will Many Be Saved?) entitled “Ralph Martin Reflects on Mission of the New Evangelization.”
- Video from Ralph Martin’s recent talk at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids has also just become available on YouTube.
- More on the “Jesus’ Wife” fragment: Mark Goodacre (Thomas and the Gospels) was quoted in a CNN Belief Blog post this week, and Anthony Le Donne (Historical Jesus) discussed the controversy’s potential ramifications for the peer review process in his Jesus Blog post “Jesus was married! …is what folks write about in the information age.”
- Jen Robinson shared her review of Émile Jadou’s All by Myself!, which concluded that “the minimalist illustrations and short declarative sentences are toddler-friendly, and likely to evoke belly laughs.”
- Nathaniel Claiborne continued his series of posts on Craig G. Bartholomew and David J. H. Beldman’s Hearing the Old Testament: Listening for God’s Address in a Marturo entry entitled “Hearing the Old Testament: Learning to Listen.”
- The Children’s Book Council is currently featuring Devin Brown’s Not Exactly Normal in its Seasonal Showcase Back to School We Go!
