You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit

Jamie Smith’s most recent book, You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit, is a more popular version of his books Desiring the Kingdom and Imagining the Kingdom. It removes some of the more academic conversations and distills his thesis into a two introductory chapters. But the book is not just a redo; there are new metaphors, new illustrations and he applies his thesis to the spheres of Christian worship, the home, youth ministry, and work.

How Did Paul Understand the Trinity?

In recent years, there has been a growing gap between exegetical studies in the Pauline epistles on the one hand, and trinitarian theology on the other. A widely held view among scholars is that Paul began from the starting point of Jewish monotheism and then sought to understand Jesus and His relationship to God through that interpretive lens. This has led some scholars to assign Jesus a very close identification with God in Paul’s letters, but others to see Jesus as occupying a subordinate role to God. Wesley Hill enters this conversation and presents the alternative of reading Pauline texts through a trinitarian lens.

Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament

Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament will be a helpful book for Greek scholars at several stages in their careers, and with several purposes in mind. The book is not written in such a way that it would take the place of a grammar (or the section of a grammar covering prepositions). Rather, it is intended to be a supplement, assisting the reader with further study into the use of prepositions in the Greek New Testament.
