This week’s selection: Christian culture wars of the New Testament, preaching strategies, and a companion to the theology of Soren Kierkegaard

Render Unto Caesar: The struggle over Christ and culture in the New Testament by John Dominic Crossan (HarperOne, £26.99 (£24.29); 978-0-06-296493-9).

“Bible scholar John Dominic Crossan, author of The Historical Jesus, provides new insight into the Christian culture wars which began in the New Testament and persist strongly today.”


Preaching that Shows: Revealing relevance by Margaret Cooling (SCM Press, £25 (£20); 978-0-334-06184-7).

“Offering a ground-breaking approach as a counter to well-worn preaching strategies, this book explores the ‘revelatory plot’, focused more on the gradual revelation of relevant truths within the biblical text through character and embodied insight, and through imaginative and sensory detail rather than through answering the questions ‘how and why’. It will prove an invaluable resource for students, homileticians and preachers alike.”

T & T Clark Companion to the Theology of Kierkegaard, edited by Aaron P. Edwards and David J. Gouwens (T & T Clark, £28.99 (£26.09); 978-1-350-32035-2). New in paperback.

“This companion explores Soren Kierkegaard’s theological importance, offering a comprehensive reading of his work through a distinctly theological lens, including interpretative concerns, his approach to specific doctrines, and theological trajectories for thinking beyond his work.”

Selected by Frank Nugent, of the Church House Bookshop, which operates the
Church Times Bookshop.
