A few months ago I was gifted by InterVarsity with a copy of John Goldingay’s Israel’s Gospel. Today, I also received the second volume of his Old Testament theology trilogy, Israel’s Faith. I have heard nothing but good things about Goldingay’s work, especially as it relates to open theism. I also like what I saw bibliography wise, as Goldingay, an evangelical, is dialoguing with Black and Womanist biblical scholars.
I have been generously given by InterVarsity Press a copy of Overturning Tables: Freeing Missions from the Christian-Industrial Complex by Scott A. Bressenecker.
What values do Christian mission organizations embody? Is it the one of free markets and multinational corporations or is it the Economy of Jesus? I hope to explore these issues from Bressnecker’s perspective.
Intervarsity Press has sent me a book to review, The Future of Evangelical Theology: Soundings From The Asian American Diaspora by Amos Yong.
It may be good idea to read this text alongside Simon Chan’s Grassroots Asian Theology.
