John Peckham’s Canonical Theology: The biblical canon, sola scriptura and theological method looks at the divide between the intrinsic-canon view of authority and the communitarian approach, the place of tradition and reason, and how to do theology from a canonical per­spective (Wm B. Eerdmans, £26.99 (£24.30); 978-0-8028-7330-9).

Peter Slotterdijk engages with the work of a German philosopher from the 20th century in Not Saved: Essays after Heidegger. The translation is by Ian Alexander Moore and Christopher Turner (Polity Press, £17.99 (£16.20); 978-0-7456-9699-7).

The logic of incarnation in Merleau-Ponty’s metaphysics of the flesh is the subtitle and theme of Orion Edgar’s book Things Seen and Unseen, on the philosopher’s ontology and its roots (James Clarke & Co., £22.75; 978-0-22717-594-1).

I Believe: The promise of the Creed systematises Pope Francis’s teaching on the Apostles’ Creed (trans. Robert Krieg) (Orbis/Alban, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-1-62698-188-1).

Andy Bannister seeks to counter argu­ments made by unbelievers in The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist: Or: The dreadful consequences of bad arguments (Monarch, £8.99 (£8.20); 978-0-85721-610-6).
