There will be no physical SBL (Society of Biblical Literature) this year, which means no book booths, which means … we professors all grieve over not seeing the new offerings and bump into friends and foes in the pathways in the exhibit hall.

So, I wrote to some publishers and asked them to give me a short list of their new offerings.

Each day this week I will feature one publisher.

Today we visit IVP. I will avoid making comments on each and encourage you to look over the list – as you would scan the new books at SBL – and go to the link for the ones that interest you the most.

Catherine Wright, Spiritual Practices of Jesus: Learning Simplicity, Humility, and Prayer with Luke’s Earliest Readers.

  1. Randolph Richards & Richard James, Misreading Scripture with Individualist Eyes

Bruce Riley Ashford & Craig Bartholomew, The Doctrine of Creation: A Constructive Kuyperian Approach.
