9781451469370The Historical Character of Jesus: Canonical Insights from Outside the Gospels by David M. Allen (Fortress Press. 9781451469370. Paperback. $29.00

“Historical Jesus studies are in tension today, and their dizzying array of methods on a spectrum—from ‘believe your reconstructions’ to ‘there is no consensus’ to ‘caution, caution, caution’—have led a number of scholars to enter the fray from a different location. David Allen has turned the ‘remembered Jesus’ inside out to suggest that the historical character of Christ takes on a kaleidoscope of options and theologies. In this book, historical Jesus studies learn to become Christology.”—Scot McKnight

9780989167130 Bible Revival: Recommitting Ourselves to One Book by Kenneth Berding (Weaver Book Company. 9780989167130. Paperback. $12.99)

Bible Revival is at once an accessible and soul-searching read. Kenneth Berding is prophetic and characteristically pastoral in his approach to difficult and sometimes personal questions. Early on, he identifies what he calls a “famine of hearing the words of the Lord.” He goes on to present clear, scripturally grounded strategies for finding nourishment in the famine. You cannot help but be challenged by this book, and if you receive Dr. Berding’s admonitions and advice, you will find yourself reevaluating the place of Scripture in your life.”—Barry H. Corey
