Greetings from Books At a Glance!

Your weekly summary surveys modern theories of knowledge in order to clear the way for Plantinga’s Warranted Christian Belief, which we have summarized as well. The project is very important for Christian apologetics and our knowledge of God. We also interviewed Brandon Crowe on his new work on the general epistles, reviewed a work on bioethics, featured a book on Warfield by our own Fred Zaspel as well as a new unique book on Hebrew devotionals, and last of all we want to point you to a giveaway of two NIV-Greek (UBS5) Bibles that you can enter to win ($70 value each). Enjoy!

DEVOTIONS ON THE HEBREW BIBLE: 54 REFLECTIONS TO INSPIRE AND INSTRUCT, edited by Milton Eng and Lee Fields
