Three Book Reviews Online

I have three book reviews in the current issues of magazines and journals, all of which are available online. My previously noted Interpretation review of Beginning from Jerusalem: Christianity in the Making, Vol. 2 by James D. G. Dunn is here.

My Christian Century review of Apocalypse and Allegiance: Worship, Politics, and Devotion in the Book of Revelation by J. Nelson Kraybill is here.

And my Duke Divinity School Magazine review of World Upside Down: Reading Acts in the Graeco-Roman Age by C. Kavin Rowe is here.

  1. I also did a review of Kraybill’s book. I enjoyed it very much

    I’ve got a paper on Paul’s use of the OT in Romans 1.16-17 and Romans 4.1-25 that I want to send your way. Is that alright?

    Hi, Tyler,

    Great review.

    Send the paper on. I’m swamped but will TRY to take a look. No promises, unfortunately, at this time.

    Hi Dr. Gorman,

    I’ve read the Dunn and Rowe books and enjoyed your reviews (although trying to adequately review the volumes of “Christianity in the Making” is a pretty much impossible task!).

    I’ve questioned Rowe about his book and he has agreed to do an interview on my blog, so that should be posted soon (hopefully).

    Thanks, Dan. Let me know when you post Kavin’s interview. He’s a very good theologian and scholar—and a great guy.

    I asked for 10,000 words to review Dunn. :-)

    I should have added that I think you would really like the Kraybill book.

    Thank you for the review of Kraybill’s book – it’s right up my street – fascinating! I shall be buying it asap.

    My pleasure, Peter. My own book, coming out in November from Cascade Wipf and Stock) will be similar in tone: Reading Revelation Responsibly: Uncivil Worship and Witness; Following the Lamb into the New Creation.
