News from Eerdmans . . .
- It’s been a quiet week here at Eerdmans Publishing.
. . . and elsewhere.
- Wes Granberg-Michaelson’s op-ed on religious immigration for Religious News Service was featured in the RNS religious news roundup: “Given his recent focus on the poor and his own family’s immigrant history, [Pope] Francis might enjoy Wesley Granberg-Michaelson’s column on immigrant Christian communities and how they are revitalizing American Christianity.”
- The Washington Post consulted Margaret Bendroth — author of the forthcoming book The Spiritual Practice of Remembering — in a fascinating story about preserving historic church records through digitization. Bendroth is the executive director of Boston’s Congregational Library.
This Picture Book Life featured Garmann’s Secret by Stian Hole, splashing many of its deeply colorful and intricate illustrations across the web page. Stian Hole’s “digitally collaged books have a look like nothing else. Same goes for the story. It too is kind of bizarre in a wonderful way. It meanders and goes beyond a traditional story arc.”
- On October 22, Calvin Theological Seminary will be hosting a webcast book launch for Neal Plantinga’s forthcoming book, Reading for Preaching: The Preacher in Conversation with Storytellers, Biographers, Journalists, and Poets. Click here to view the video invitation, sign up for an email reminder, and read all the details.
- Meet the Author, a show on Radio Maria hosted by Ken Huck, interviewed W. Paul Jones on September 26 about his book A Different Kind of Cell.
- Jordon Barrett reviewed Genesis and Christian Theology (MacDonald, Elliott, Macaskill eds.) for Wheaton’s doctoral student blog. He calls it “another helpful installment in the Scripture and Theology series thanks to the conferences and Eerdmans.”
- Phil Long reviewed David Remembered: Kingship and National Identity in Ancient Israel by Joseph Blenkinsopp on his blog Reading Acts.
- We’re giving away two books by Addison Hodges Hart on GoodReads: Taking Jesus at His Word: What Jesus Really Said in the Sermon on the Mount, and The Ox-Herder and the Great Shephert: Finding Christ on the Buddha’s Path. The giveaway lasts until October 26!
