Reordering Theological Reflection: Starting with scripture by Helen Collins (SCM Press, £19.99 (£17.99); 978-0-334-05856-4)

“This book answers a wider call made by prominent theological voices to re-discover the theological heart of the discipline of practical theology and develop new methods which take scripture and tradition more seriously.”

 

 

The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor: Hearing justice in John’s Gospel by Kathleen P. Rushton (SCM Press, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-334-05905-9)

“Focused around the lectionary readings from the Gospel, The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor suggests that, far from being a Gospel which sits at a safe remove from every day life, it can in fact be preached as an urgent call to hear the voices of the oppressed in our world.”

 

 

God and the Pandemic: A Christian reflection on the coronavirus and its aftermath by Tom Wright (SPCK, £7.99 (£7.19); 978-0-281-08511-8)

“Tom Wright examines reactions to the coronavirus and finds them wanting. Instead, he invites you to consider a different way of seeing and responding: a way that draws on the teachings and examples of scripture, and above all on the way of living, thinking and praying revealed to us by Jesus.”

 

 

The Jews and the Reformation by Kenneth Austin (Yale, £30 (£27); 978-0-300-18629-1)

“In this rich, wide-ranging, and meticulously researched account, Kenneth Austin examines the attitudes of various Christian groups in the Protestant and Catholic Reformations towards Jews, the Hebrew language, and Jewish learning.”

 

 

Philippians (New Cambridge Bible Commentary) by M. F. Bird and N. K. Gupta (CUP, £22.99 (£20.69); 978-1-108-46291-4)

“In this commentary, Michael Bird and Nijay Gupta situate Paul’s letter to the Philippians within the context of his imprisonment as well as the Philippians’ situation of suffering and persecution.”
