BA Books & Authors on the Web – December 12, 2014

Cover ArtMark Noll’s From Every Tribe and Nation was recommended by Robert Tracy McKenzie at Faith and History.

“It’s essentially the story of his personal spiritual and intellectual journey, with an emphasis on the way that Noll’s engagement with Christianity in other parts of the world has deepened his faith. But as every historian knows, you can visit foreign countries by traveling through time as well as space. Noll illustrates that truth wonderfully in the book’s second chapter, ‘Rescued by the Reformation.’”

Cover ArtSarah Mazengarb reviewed Steven Bouma-Prediger’s For the Beauty of the Earth, at Regent’s Ideas & Media blog.

“Bouma-Prediger suggests we ask not what we should do but who we should be.  Many books addressing the ecological crisis are full of ‘to-do’ lists.  Bouma-Prediger goes deeper, offering a unique way to approach ecological issues that is sustainable and full of vision.  As people understand who they should be—in relationship with God and the world around them—they will begin ‘to do’ what needs to be done, but it will be founded in love and gratitude rather than obligation.”
