BA Books & Authors on the Web – March 21, 2014

Cover ArtThe Good of Politics by James Skillen was extensively reviewed Byron Borger of Hearts & Minds Books.

“[I]t is with exceptional gladness that we can here announce the publication of the brand new book by James Skillen, The Good of Politics….In various ways in this important book, Skillen helps us ponder what we mean by ‘public justice’ and the ‘common good’ and ponders essential questions such as how the state – which is God’s good gift to us, not a bad thing — can use legitimate authority to help order our pluralistic political community.”

Billy Kangas at The Orant reviewed Jonathan Wilson’s God’s Good World.

At Everyday Theology, Marc Cortez reflected on discerning God’s work in historical events, and turned to John Fea’s Why Study History?
