BA Books & Authors on the Web – February 5, 2016

Cover ArtUsing and Enjoying Biblical Greek, by Rodney Whitacre, was reviewed at Exegetical Tools.

“A valuable tool for anyone who has taken one year of Greek or one who is a little rusty and wants to return to one’s first love. The format is easy to follow and the examples are good at illustrating points discussed in the book. For someone who has kept their Greek and uses it on a daily basis, I find chapter six alone is worth the price of the book…If you are learning Greek or use Greek daily, this is a book worth having on your shelf and working through.”

Also at Exegetical Tools, a series on D. A. Carson’s classic Exegetical Fallacies.

RJS, at Jesus Creed, explored J. Richard Middleton’s critique of rapture theology in A New Heaven and a New Earth.

Cover ArtIntroducing Biblical Hermeneutics, by Craig Bartholomew, was reviewed at Sojourner Theology.

“An excellent introduction to the task of biblical interpretation….Bartholomew has produced a volume that is both comprehensive and readable, and his hermeneutical vision captures the essence of biblical revelation well….This is a monumental achievement in the field of biblical interpretation and the pastor, teacher or student would do well in referring to it often.”

Andrew Root’s Bonhoeffer as Youth Worker was reviewed at Resistance & Renewal.

At Scriptorium Daily, Fred Sanders discussed a section on Trinitarianism in Stanley Porter’s Linguistic Analysis of the Greek New Testament.

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?
