Ten Theology Books to Watch Out For – July 2020
Here are some excellent new theology books * to be released in July 2020:
* Broadly interpreted, including ethics, church history, Bible studies, and other areas that overlap with theology
N. T. Wright's collected essays bring together N. T. Wright's most important articles on scripture and hermeneutics, Jesus and the Gospels, and Paul and his letters of the past three decades.
Here is a rich festival for all serious New Testament students. Each essay in this three-volume collection will amply reward those looking for a detailed, concise, and exquisitely nuanced exegesis, resulting in a clearer, deeper, and more profound appreciation of Scripture and its application to contemporary Christian life and thought.
The internationally renowned scholar Richard Bauckham offers a short, dedicated study of the divine revelation in Scripture. He examines the deep meaning of known moments in biblical history to answer the key question that the Bible is supposed to answer: Who is God?
This volume is accessible to laypeople and important for scholars. He begins by examining three key events in the Bible that reveal God: Jacob's dream in Bethel (the revelation of the divine presence), Moses on the burning bush (the revelation of the divine name)), and Moses on Mount Sinai (the Revelation of the divine character). In any case, Bauckham pursues these topics through the rest of the writing. He then shows how the New Testament builds on the old by examining three revealing events in the Gospel of Mark that reveal the Trinity: the baptism, transfiguration, and crucifixion of Jesus.
This book is based on the Frumentius lectures for 2015 at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology in Addis Ababa and the Haywood lectures for 2018 at the Acadia Divinity College in Nova Scotia.
