    Scripture, Metaphysics, and the Task of Christian Theology

    Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture

    by Brian J. Tabb
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    Rediscovering Scripture's Vision for Women

    Fresh Perspectives on Disputed Texts

    by Lucy Peppiatt
    Foreword by Scot McKnight

    Does God call women to serve as equal partners in marriage and as leaders in the church? With careful exegetical work, Lucy Peppiatt considers relevant passages in Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Peter, 1 Timothy, and 1 Corinthians. There she finds a story of God releasing women alongside men into all forms of ministry, leadership, work, and service on the basis of character and gifting, rather than biological sex.

    The Liturgy of Creation

    Understanding Calendars in Old Testament Context

    by Michael LeFebvre
    Foreword by C. John Collins

    How were holidays chosen and taught in biblical Israel, and what did they have to do with the creation narrative? Michael LeFebvre considers the calendars of the Pentateuch, arguing that dates were added to Old Testament narratives not as journalistic details but to teach sacred rhythms of labor and worship. LeFebvre then applies this insight to the creation week, finding that the days of creation also serve a liturgical purpose.

    Bridging Barth and Postliberalism

    New Explorations in Theology

    by David B. Hunsicker

    Divine Impassibility

    Four Views of God's Emotions and Suffering

    Spectrum Multiview Books

    Edited by Robert J. Matz and A. Chadwick Thornhill

    Does God suffer? Does God experience emotions? Does God change? This Spectrum Multiview volume brings together four theologians who make a case for their own view—ranging from a traditional affirmation of divine impassibility (the idea that God does not suffer) to the position that God is necessarily and intimately affected by creation—and then each contributor responds to the others' views.

    Exalted Above the Heavens

    The Risen and Ascended Christ

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Peter C. Orr
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    Christians usually focus on what Jesus has done (his life, death and resurrection) and what he will do (his second coming and reign). However, Christ is the one who not only lived, died, rose, and will come again: he is also currently seated at God's right hand. In this NSBT volume, Peter Orr explores the New Testament witness to Jesus as he is now, the exalted Christ, through the lenses of his identity, his location, and his activity.
