With CCBCY semester finished, Tasha, Isa and I are all in visiting our family in Washington. A trip to the USA always includes new books, and here are the first fruits that were waiting for me when we arrived. Thanks to Alban, Fortress Press, and Hendrickson for providing review copies of the below books.

My good friend and fellow teacher at Calvary Chapel Bible College York, Randy McCracken, has just released a book resulting from his 10+ years teaching 1 & 2 Samuel called Family Portraits: Character Studies in 1 and 2 Samuel. This book has a unique blend of academic rigour and devotional warmth. Unlike many character studies, it is firmly grounded in the text and insights spring from in-depth study (rather than imagination and/or speculation).
This post is long overdue, since I’ve read and written reviews of both Dominion and Dynasty and Paul and Judaism Revisited! But I like to a) keep readers up to date, and b) keep publishers in the loop with the books that I’ve received so that everything is above board.
