Welcome once again to Eerdmans All Over, a Friday roundup of all the Eerdmans-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can gather in a given week.
News from Eerdmans . . .
- It’s been a quiet week at Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.
. . . and Elsewhere
- Kyle Roberts recommended Migrations of the Holy by William T. Cavanaugh as a good Memorial Day read on his Unsystematic Theology blog. The book is a provocative exploration, says Roberts, of the “submission of religion to the powers of the State and the migration of the Holy and the Sovereign from God to the State in both liberal and conservative forms of Christianity in America.”
- Jennifer Harvey, author of Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation, was quoted in a New Republic article on “The White Protestant Roots of American Racism.” Harvey and other scholars spoke about the tensions and potential contradictions within the “Protestant work ethic” regarding the labor of black Americans.
- The Ecumenical Institute of Theology at St. Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore held a book launch on Wednesday for Becoming the Gospel, Michael Gorman’s new book on missional theology in Paul. Gorman, along with Dr. John Franke of the Gospel and Our Culture Network and Stephan Bauman, President and CEO of World Relief, spoke about the book’s argument that mission is at the heart of the Gospel and, as such, the church is called to become the Gospel, not just believe it.
