20 January 2017


ANDREW SHANKS, in Hegel versus “Inter-Faith Dialogue”: A general theory of true xenophilia, sets out his view that the concept of plural faiths is a problem for Christianity, argues against “interfaith dialogue” as a term, and promotes a new understanding rooted in Hegel (CUP, £62 (£55.80); 978-1-107-09763-0).

In Your Will be Done: Exploring eternal subordination, divine monarchy and divine humility, Michael Ovey turns to scripture and the Fathers to explore the relationship between the Persons of the Trinity (Latimer Trust, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-1-906327-40-8).

In The Mystery of the Eucharist: Voices from the saints and mystics, Denis Billy examines the teachings of 26 theologians, including Anselm, Hildegard, Aquinas, Julian of Norwich, Ignatius of Loyola, Newman, Thomas Merton, and Pope John Paul II (New City, £19.50 (£17.55); 978-1-56548-530-3).

Garry Williams, in His Love Endures for Ever: Reflections on the love of God, seeks to get to the heart of how God loves and what that means (IVP, £11.99 (£10.80); 978-1-78359-283-8).

Kenneth Wilson, in The Theological Roots of Christian Gratitude, offers a framework for the experience and understanding of thankfulness, which, he argues, could transform society (Palgrave Macmillan, £63; 978-1-137-53691-4).

Scott Macdougall, in More than Communion: Imagining an eschatological ecclesiology, points towards going beyond internal structures and unity and moving outward into the world (Bloomsbury, T & T. Clark, £90 (£81); 978-0-567-65988-0).

In Reformed Catholicity: The promises of retrieval for theology and biblical interpretation, a “manifesto”, Michael Allen and Scott Swain argue that Protestants should quarry the Catholic tradition for theological and spiritual renewal (Baker Academic, £12.99 (£11.70); 978-0-8010-4979-8).
