Cover ArtAt First Things, Peter Leithart reflected on the idea of “public theology” after reading Kevin Vanhoozer and Owen Strachan’s The Pastor as Public Theologian.

“The pastor’s task is always a public one, since it always has to do with helping a congregation ‘to become what they are called to be.’

This is indeed, as Vanhoozer claims, a ‘more excellent way’ of conceiving of and doing public theology.”

The Pastor as Public Theologian was reviewed at Veritas et Lux and Ordinary Ministry.

Michael, at Intelmin Apologetics, reviewed Defending Substitution by Simon Gathercole.

Tom Rainer included D.A. Carson’s Exegetical Fallacies, Millard Erickson’s Christian Theology, John Piper’s Let the Nations Be Glad, and Thomas Schreiner’s BECNT volume on Romans in his post What If I Could Only Have 25 Books in My Minister’s Library?
