We’re excited to announce the arrival of our Spring/Summer 2022 Catalog. Packed full of essential resources for students, pastors, academics, and general readers, there are a number of books to get excited about.
Here are a few highlights you’re not going to want to miss.
Release date: September 14, 2022
Christians today have a lot to learn from the devotional life of the early church. In Fount of Heaven, a collection of carefully selected prayers from the first six centuries of the church, we can pray with our spiritual forefathers. Prayers from luminaries such as Clement of Rome, Irenaeus, and Augustine are arranged by theme to reveal the right prayer for the moment. The prayers have been slightly updated to read more easily, but they retain their joy and mystery. As we turn to the prayers of the first Christians, we can return to the foundations of our own faith.
“These extraordinary prayers, superbly arranged, have met a deep need in my heart. The book will be henceforth on my bedside table beside my Bible. Get yourself a copy of this book, pray with it, and share this book with others. A beacon of Christ-centered, God-centered light in dark times!”
—Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary
Release date: August 3, 2022
The church has been entrusted with God’s revelation—and to steward the word of truth, we must confess the Bible’s teaching with clarity and conviction. Adam Harwood’s Christian Theology is both biblically faithful and historically informed, providing a fresh synthesis of the essential doctrines of the faith. Writing from a Baptist perspective, Harwood brings fresh insights that many systematic theologies lack.
“This generation of evangelicals and Baptists has long required a new and widely trusted single-author systematic theology. Adam Harwood now steps forward to fill the gap with his aptly named Christian Theology: Biblical, Historical, and Systematic. I am elated to endorse this careful, learned, and broad-based exemplar of Christian orthodoxy for use in the classroom, in the pastor’s study, and in the academically-inclined layperson’s library.”
—Malcolm B. Yarnell, research professor of theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
“This volume will serve as a very informative introduction to evangelical Christian belief from a Baptist perspective for students of theology as well as for pastors and interested laypeople.”
—Roger E. Olson, emeritus professor of Christian theology, Baylor University
“This one-volume study of the theological loci of our faith is well-balanced, judicious, and comprehensive. It does not shy away from detailing what have been areas of controversy over church history, but it does so with both charity and precision, which makes it an ideal textbook for introductory courses in systematic theology.”
—Michael A. G. Haykin, chair and professor of church history, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
New English Translations of Classic Works
We’re pleased to add to our line of classic works that have been freshly translated to English with two new titles in 2022.
- The Klaas Schilder Reader: The Essential Theological Writings edited by George Harinck, Marinus De Jong, and Richard Mouw (May 25, 2022)
- Faith in the New Testament: A Study in Biblical Theology by Adolf Schlatter (August 24, 2022)
“Klaas Schilder’s prophetic voice reminds the Reformed tradition that our cultural endeavors must be cruciform—that our ‘kingdom’ endeavors are in the service of a King who bears scars. This reader is an excellent opportunity for Schilder’s voice to be heard more widely.”
—James K. A. Smith, professor of philosophy, Gary and Henrietta Byker Chair in Applied Reformed Theology and Worldview, Calvin University, Grand Rapids
“I’m delighted to see this long-overdue, excellent, and faithful translation of Adolf Schlatter’s brilliant and award-winning monograph on faith in the New Testament. While written in 1885, the work is eminently relevant and provides a proper and highly illuminating framework for contemporary discussions on the nature of faith in the writings of Paul. But the volume does not merely shed light on the modern debate; it makes a vital contribution in its own right, both on an academic and a devotional level.”
—Andreas J. Köstenberger, research professor of New Testament and biblical theology and director of the Center for Biblical Studies, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; co-founder of Biblical Foundations; translator of Adolf Schlatter’s The History of the Christ and The Theology of the Apostles
