Defying the Holocaust: Ten courageous Christians who supported Jews, by Tim Dowley (SPCK, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-281-08362-6)

During the Second World War, Christians from many nations and denominations stepped forward with courage, ingenuity and determination to protect and rescue Jews from the Holocaust. In doing so they risked their lives, and many died. Some, such as Corrie ten Boom, are celebrated, but most have been ignored. Historian Tim Dowley tells ten stories of these extraordinary women and men.”


The Gospel According to Eve: A history of women’s interpretation, by Amanda Benckhuysen (IVP Academic, £16.99; 978-0-8308-5227-7)

“What does it mean to be male and female? Do women and men have different intellectual, spiritual, moral, or emotional capacities? Are women especially suited for serving and men for leading? Are women and men equal?”


Trump and the Puritans: How the Evangelical religious Right put Donald Trump in the White House, by James Roberts and Martyn Whittock (Biteback Publishing, £20 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £15); 978-1-785-90508-7)

The year 2020 is a hugely significant one for the United States of America, marking as it does the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims to the New World and their establishment of a `godly' colony in (what was for them) the `American wilderness'. But it is also the year of the next Presidential election, one where the current occupant is expected to stand for re-election.


Paul and the Giants of Philosophy: Reading the Apostle in Greco-Roman context, edited by Joseph Dodson and David Briones (IVP Academic, £14.99; 978-0-8308-5228-4)

“Dodson and Briones have gathered contributors with diverse views from various traditions who are united in the desire to make Paul's engagement with ancient philosophy accessible to many readers.”


Seeing Light: A critical enquiry into the origins of resurrection faith, by Peter Gant (Sacristy Press, £23.99 (£21.60); 978-1-78959-047-0)

Seeing Light asks whether there is any basis for honestly and meaningfully affirming belief in the resurrection of Jesus today.”
