Announcing Beyond the Book

BeyondTheBookBA

We are pleased to announce an exciting new series here at the Baker Academic blog, which we are calling Beyond the Book.

Starting next week, we will be featuring an original post from a Baker Academic author every Monday. Each author will be featured for one month, and will be writing accessible pieces about their area of expertise – from early Christology to the ministry of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

In addition, each month we will give away three copies of a recent or forthcoming book by that month’s author.

This March we excited to share a series of posts on eschatology from J. Richard Middleton, and you can enter to win a copy of his A New Heaven and a New Earth below.*

    I am interested in reading A New Heaven and a New Earth because I believe the implications of the New Heaven and New Earth are immense for how we live today. It is so important to grow in our understanding of what is to come as we work through the trials and suffering that comes today.

    • I am in the middle of completing a post-graduate degree focusing on how our Christian views of the end should positively affect our current mission in the world. Would love to be able to read this book as a part of my research.

      • Joe Ortiz says:

        Mike, I highly recommend N.T. Write’s book, “Surprised By Hope” which I believe will provide you with many answers to your concerns.

  2. brian molloy says:

    Great book!

  3. I feel evangelicalism has neglected teaching on the New Heavens and New Earth while focusing on heaven alone as life after death. We need more books that bring together the whole ending!

  4. I’m always interested to see new work in theology, so a book taking Biblical scholarship and the historical creeds seriously looks good.

  5. J.D. Jespersen says:

    Quite excited about this new series. Any time we can hear more engagement from on author on their work outside of the actual book, it creates a richer experience when reading the book. Thank you for the series and subsequent giveaway(s).

  6. David Hanson says:

    I believe in resurrection, restitution, regeneration, restoration……
    not replacement.

  7. LuAnne Schendel says:

    I would love to read this book.

  8. Have already begun reading and blogging about this outstanding book that makes significant correctives to a worn out eschatology that leaves far more questions that it answers. The practical insights on the resurrection of Christ in relation to the scope of redemption in chapters 7-8 are worth the price of the book. See my http://inchristus.com/2015/03/02/resurrection-and-redemption/

  9. I’d love to win this book!

  10. Well this looks bostin.

  11. I’ve read great things about the book (including most recently very favorable comments from Howard Snyder). Looking forward to reading it!

  12. Rev. Bryant J. Williams III says:

    This will be an interesting and intriguing series considering the debate over Revelation 20 and its relationship to Revelation 21:1ff.

  13. I’m interested in reading this because I think we need to reclaim the idea of a physical eschatological hope, and I’m sure the book will help clarify my own thought on the topic.

  14. Having spent a long time (3 years now) in personal study of the subject, I was intrigued by this volume. Glad to see Baker opened this to Canadian entries.

  15. I loved The Liberating Image when I read it a few years ago … currently making use of it in my PhD thesis. Looking forward to A New Heaven and a New Earth. Biblical Christianity affirms the goodness of creation from beginning to end!

  16. Gabrielle says:

    As an artist (performing arts), I’ve always been fascinated by the new heavens & new earth as an actual, physical, created place. That concept helps give value to what I do every day, even if what I do is not “practical” in the sight of much of society. The premise of this book intrigues me.

  17. Daniel Glover says:

    This book is on my amazon wishlist and is highly anticipated. Biblical eschatology is an area of deep interest to me and I’m quite ready to give this book some careful reading and consideration.

  18. I’ve come around to this position (creation’s renewal rather than destruction) in recent years and would love to read another title that focuses on this eschatological approach.

  19. Daniel B. Glover says:

    I’m excited to read A New Heaven and a New Earth. Christian eschatology has been hijacked both by millennialism and rapture theology. The Christian expectation has always been resurrection of the dead and the recreation of the new heavens and new earth. This being the case, I’m excited to see what Middleton has to say about the topic!

  20. Awesome

  21. james mckinstry says:

    Having read “Surprised By Hope” by N.T. Wright, and having heard Dr. Middleton’s position at an SBL meeting, I would greatly enjoying more of what he has to say on the topic.
