2574The First Thanksgiving: What the Real Story Tells Us About Loving God and Learning from History by Robert Tracy McKenzie (IVP Academic. 9780830825745. Paperback. $18.00)

“Revisionist histories were once the rage, as academics sought recognition by shaking us from deeply and dearly held perceptions of the past with revelations of novel and counter ‘facts.’ McKenzie works the opposite direction, resurfacing the history we have forgotten regarding one of our most treasured holidays–Thanksgiving–to help reexamine and reinforce our most important convictions regarding faith and culture.” —Bryan Chapell

 

2709Paul and Judaism Revisited: A Study of Divine and Human Agency in Salvation by Preston M. Sprinkle (IVP Academic. 9780830827091. Paperback. $24.00)

“We might be tempted to think that there is nothing more to say about Paul’s soteriology and that the ground has been thoroughly plowed since the new perspective. Sprinkle opens new windows by comparing the soteriology of Qumran with Paul, particularly by emphasizing Paul’s distinctive slant on divine agency. Scholars and students will profit from this careful reappraisal of Paul’s soteriology which is rooted in robust exegesis.” —Thomas Schreiner
