Welcome to the Baker Academic Blog – Best of 2012

Welcome to the new blog for Baker Academic!

Our vision for this blog is that it be an extension of the goals of our publishing program – to further the pursuit of knowledge and understanding within the context of Christian faith. We are very proud of our authors and the works that they publish with us. Our hope is that this blog might continue the conversations begun through our publishing in a new medium and possibly to a new audience.

On the Baker Academic Blog we will post book announcements, excerpts, interviews and original posts from our authors, and much more. Tomorrow, for example, we will post an interview with Dr. Craig Keener about his award-winning book Miracles.

For our first post, however, we wanted to highlight the recognition that many of our books received in various “Best of 2012” lists. To celebrate these books, as well as the launch of our new blog, we will be holding a giveaway of several of these “Best of” books. See the bottom of this post for more information.


  1. I heard Robin Jensen speak in Calgary, Alberta a couple of years ago and read her “Understanding Early Christian Art.” It is a very good book!
