With the (deserved) excitement that came around the publication of The True Herod by Geza Vermes, we realised you may have missed some of our other releases last month. The following two New in Paperback volumes were released, one on each list: After Ezekiel: Essays on the Reception of a Difficult Prophet, which was published into our LHBOTs series in Biblical Studies, and Jonathan Edwards's Theology: A Reinterpretation, which was published into our T&T Clark Studies in Systematic Theology series in Theology. Read on for futher details of two monographs which are now available in paperback.
This excellent addition to our venerable series was reviewed by the following when it was released in hardback:
'Overall, this is a very interesting and stimulating book. The essays have unearthed a wealth of insights that can be of help to us when we approach the difficult book of Ezekiel and seek to come to terms wit its theology and its worldview.'
-Review of Biblical Literature
'It makes use not only of religious texts, but also of artistic representations. It therefore offers a kaleidoscopic montage of themes and images from Ezekiel as they make an impact in a wide variety of contexts...Each of these pieces is a detailed scholarly analysis of its particular topic. The collection as a whole conveys a sense of Ezekiel not as a dry text whose ‘problems’ need to be solved, but as a living book, in continuous conversation with its interpreters.;
-Ann Conway-Jones, Religion and Theology
This work, published into our T&T Clark Studies in Systematic Theology series, provides an interpretative key to Jonathan Edwards's theology, developed from within his own doctrinal constructs. Strobel offers a dogmatic exposition of Edwards's theology by unveiling the trinitarian architecture of his thought, and applies his construct to reinterpret three key areas of redemption debated widely in the secondary literature: spiritual knowledge, regeneration, and religious affection.
Strobel's approach is theological rather than philosophical, employing Edwards's self-confession as a Reformed theologian to guide his analysis. In advancing a theological reading of Edwards, Strobel focuses on the systematic nature of Edward's theology, ordering it according to his doctrinal affirmations. This necessitates, as many Edwards scholars now affirm, a primary focus on Edwards's trinitarian theology, where the Trinity serves as the key ontological principle which orders the whole of his doctrinal construction. By grounding the interpretive key in Edwards's understanding of the Trinity, Strobel's idiosyncratic exposition of his doctrine of the Trinity serves to recast Edwards's theology in a new light.
We hope you enjoy these New in Paperbacks! You can buy them on the Bloomsbury website, but please be aware that as they are Print on Demand books, they may take a little longer to get to you.
