Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl was written after his release from a concentration camp at the end of the Second World War. In this edition, his text is introduced by Martin Gilbert, and accompanied by a chronology of Frankl's life, and an afterword by William Winslade. Also included are the texts of a few letters, and of two influential speeches (Rider, £10.99 (£9.90); 978-1-8460-4284-3).

The first two volumes of Exploring the New Testament have both been given a new edition. Part 1, The Gospels and Acts (978-0-281-06362-8), is by David Wenham and Steve Walton; Part 2, The Letters and Revelation (978-0-281- 06363-5), is by Howard Marshall, Stephen Travis, and Ian Paul. The authors aim to meet the intro-ductory needs of those studying to university or theological-college standard. They are good and useful text books (both published by SPCK; £16.99 (£15.30) each).

Amy Orr-Ewing's Why Trust the Bible? offers answers to the ten questions that she is asked most frequently. At heart, this is an apologetical text for a conservative reading of scripture. Orr-Ewing addresses topics such as the canon, sexism in the Bible, war, historical accuracy, and interpretation. First published in 2005, it is now in a new edition, with an extra chapter on the KJV (Inter-Varsity Press, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-1-84474-529-6).

Small Faith, Great God, pub-lished in 1978, began life as ser-mons. Though its author, Tom Wright, admits that some things have changed, and some of his ideas have developed, since then, his main message remains the same: that what we need is not a great amount of faith, but faith in a great God (SPCK, £8.99 (£8.10); 978-0-281-06365-9).
