Evangelical scholarship, retrospects and prospects : essays in honor of Stanley N. Gundry
This is, perhaps, the most multifaceted collection of essays Zondervan has ever published. A fitting Festschrift to Stan Gundry, a man known by many people for many things, but never for being one-dimensional. As a pastor, scholar, publisher, mentor, and trusted friend, Stan has played diverse roles and worn numerous hats in his professional tenure.
Contributors from a variety of disciplines put a Gundry spin on a topic of their expertise and choosing–whether it’s an evangelical-historical look at recent developments in their particular discipline or reflections on a topic at the center of Stan’s interests. The result is this Festschrift–as multilayered, engaging, and authentic as the man it honors.
Contributors and essays include: John D. Woodbridge – “The Fundamentalist-Modernist Controversy”See In Our Catalog
Saved by faith and hospitality
Too few Christians today, says Joshua Jipp, understand hospitality to strangers and the marginalized as an essential part of the church’s identity. In this book Jipp argues that God’s relationship to his people is fundamentally an act of hospitality to strangers, and that divine and human hospitality together are thus at the very heart of Christian faith.
Jipp first provides a thorough interpretation of the major biblical texts related to the practice of hospitality to strangers, considering especially how these texts portray Christ as the divine host who extends God’s welcome to all people. Jipp then invites readers to consider how God’s hospitality sets the pattern for human hospitality, offering suggestions on how the practice of welcoming strangers can guide the church in its engagement with current social challenges—immigration, incarceration, racism, and more.
