THE popular For Everyone series continues to grow. John Goldingay has added Jeremiah for Everyone (978-0-281-06138-9) and Daniel and the Twelve Prophets for Everyone (978-0-281-06140-2) to his output. He uses his own translation of the Hebrew text to accompany his commentary, which combines theology, anecdote, and reflections on the relevance of the text for today (SPCK, £9.99 (£9) each).
A set of six Bible studies based on the Epistle of St James is titled James: Genuine faith, and is by Sam Allberry. He hopes that those who study this material will discern what it looks like to be a Christian, and how faith can make a difference to daily life (The Good Book Company, £3.99; 978-1-91030-781-6).
Jeremy Duff explores Peter’s Preaching as the basis for St Mark’s Gospel in a book recommended on its back cover by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Henry Wansbrough. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme, and provides readable commentary for those wishing to understand the earliest Gospel more deeply (Bible Reading Fellowship, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-85746-350-0).
In Ruth, by L. Daniel Hawk, the Apollos Old Testament Commentary aims to offer Evangelical scholarship for non-specialists, with interpretation that makes passages relevant for today (Apollos, £19.99 (£18); 978-1-78359-307-1).
