Uncommon Unity: Wisdom for the Church in an Age of Division
Release date: October 19, 2022
What if Scripture actually provides the key for thinking about unity in diversity?
In Uncommon Unity: Wisdom for the Church in an Age of Division, Richard Lints explores the nature of diversity and how Christians can think more clearly about unity in an increasingly polarized age. Drawing on theological, historical, and sociological resources, Lints exposes problems with the inclusion narrative of democracy and shows a better way forward for fostering unity in the midst of extreme diversity. If we are to think rightly about diversity, wisdom is required for the church in our late modern world. Through wisdom, Christians can display real unity in diversity and bear witness of the God who made them for himself as diverse members of his one body.
“Uncommon Unity is filled beginning to end with biblical theology and thoughtful historical reflection. Buy, read, savor, act.”
—Ben Sasse, United States senator, Nebraska
Neo-Calvinism: A Theological Introduction
Release date: January 11, 2023
Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck sparked a theological tradition in the Netherlands that came to be known as Neo-Calvinism. While studies in Neo-Calvinism have focused primarily on its political and philosophical insights, its theology has received less attention.
In Neo-Calvinism: A Theological Introduction, Cory C. Brock and N. Gray Sutanto present the unique dogmatic contributions of the tradition. Each chapter focuses on a distinct theological aspect, such as revelation, creation, salvation, and ecclesiology. Neo-Calvinism produced rich theological work that yields promise for contemporary dogmatics. This book invites readers into this rich theological trajectory.
“This introduction is highly readable and perfect for the theological student. But it is also eminently practical. Highly recommended.”
—Timothy Keller, pastor emeritus, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; author, The Reason for God
Pierced by Love: Divine Reading with the Christian Tradition
Release date: February 15, 2023
Scripture is no mere human text; it is God’s living word. So how should we read it?
For Christians throughout the centuries, the answer has been lectio divina—“divine reading.” In Pierced by Love: Divine Reading with the Christian Tradition, Hans Boersma invites Christians to retrieve this ancient and meditative way of reading the Bible. Lectio divina is a sacramental reading. It aims to take us more deeply into the life of God. Through practicing the four movements of lectio divina—attentive reading, extended meditation, prayerful reflection, and silent resting—we have a structured and simple way to focus on Christ, listen to the Spirit, and rest in God’s love. We no longer simply read the words of Scripture; instead, we read the face of God in the eternal Word.
“This book is a work of spiritual instruction by one of the true spiritual masters of our time.”
—Matthew Levering, James N. Jr. and Mary D. Perry Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary
There are also new volumes in the FatCat series, Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary series, and the Christian Essentials series coming soon. These titles and more are now available for pre-order on LexhamPress.com.
