A few additions to the library

As if I didn’t have enough to read and not enough time to do so, I’ve ordered a few more titles to explore:

Resounding Truth: Christian Wisdom in the World of Music
Jeremy S. Begbie
Baker Academic (2007)
ISBN: 0801026954

I’d actually seen this book in Baker’s catalog last fall at a theological book fair, but didn’t pursue it. However, I recently ran across Greg Willson’s blog where he’s been interacting with some of Begbie’s other work. The whole idea of applying music in theology is an interesting proposal that I’m looking forward to exploring.

Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God
Gordon D. Fee
Hendrickson Publishers (1996)
ISBN: 1565631706

Another book with multiple recommendations. Fee’s larger work on this topic, “God’s Empowering Presence”, came up recently in Mike’s post on the Holy Spirit. I’m especially interested in Fee’s corporate understanding of Paul’s writing as it pertains to community life in the Spirit.

God of the Possible: A Biblical Introduction to the Open View of God
Gregory A. Boyd
Baker Books (2000)
ISBN: 080106290X

Ever since coming across the article on contingent prophecy in Keith Mathison’s “When Shall These Things Be?”, I’ve been curious to learn a little more about this position. Robert Jimenez had a post on exploring open theism that I’ve had flagged for a while now – the comments are well worth reading.
