Greetings! Welcome to the first edition of Eerdmans All Over, a Friday roundup of all the Eerdmans-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can find in a given week.
News from Eerdmans . . .
- Our newest in-house book trailer — for Being Good: Christian Virtues for Everyday Life — went up this week on YouTube.
- We’re currently looking to fill two in-house positions at our offices in Grand Rapids, Michigan. If you are a crackerjack sales professional who loves books or a savvy techie with graphic design and video editing skills (or you know someone who fits either of these profiles) visit our website employment page for more information.
. . . and elsewhere.
- Ravi Zacharias discussed themes from D. A. Carson’s book The Intolerance of Tolerance on his audio podcast Let My People Think.
- Marcia Pally (The New Evangelicals: Expanding the Vision of the Common Good) asked “Evangelicals: Voting Bloc or Mosaic?” on Truth-Out.org.
- Looking ahead to Father’s Day in June, Publishers Weekly featured three books that “Highlight Bonds between Fathers and Children.” We were thrilled to see David Lawther Johnson’s Learning from My Father: Lessons on Life and Faith on their list.
- John E. Anderson reviewed Kenton Sparks’s Sacred Word, Broken Word: Biblical Authority and the Dark Side of Scripture on his HESED WE ‘EMET blog.
- Phillip J. Long shared his “Top Five Luke Commentaries” on the Reading Acts blog. Can you guess which two(!) Eerdmans volumes earned spots among his favorites?
- Kent Eilers launched an in-depth, chapter-by-chapter review series discussing The Juvenilization of American Christianity (Thomas E. Bergler) on the Huntington College Theology Forum.
- In contrast, Jim West offered an “exceptionally brief review (more of a short note really)” of Juvenilization on his Zwinglius Redivivus blog.
- And finally, we were very pleased to see Jodi Magness’s 2011 EerdWord blog post introducing Stone and Dung, Oil and Spit: Jewish Daily Life in the Time of Jesus featured on RealClearBooks this past Wednesday.
Have we missed any news, reviews, or other online miscellany dealing with Eerdmans or EBYR books or authors from the last week? Let us know in the comments.
