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 find in a given week.
News from Eerdmans . . .
- Yesterday, on his imagined 115th birthday, we launched a new Facebook fan page devoted to famed fictional theologian Franz Bibfeldt, subject of Martin E. Marty and Jerald C. Brauer’s forthcoming volume The Unrelieved Paradox: Studies in the Theology of Franz Bibfeldt, 18th, or Perhaps 19th, Anniversary Revised Edition.
. . . and elsewhere.

- Jennifer Wharton also reviewed Markel and Hall’s book for Jean Little Library, saying that “completely against my will, I found this picture book biography about an artist which has none of his original art to be AMAZING.”
- Johnathan Kana wrote on Darrin Snyder Belousek’s Atonement, Justice, and Peace for Perspectives, calling the volume “uniquely edifying among works of its kind.”
