Learn More About Books at a Glance ♦
Hi, I’m Fred Zaspel, editor at Books at a Glance. If you are anything at all like me, books are a huge part of your life. King Solomon famously said that of the making of many books there is no end – but somehow we are okay with that. What a wonderful medium of communication and learning books are! But there is the frustration of keeping up. And there is the frustration of selection – knowing which books to buy next. Books at a Glance was created to help with just these frustrations. Our staff keeps up with all the newest and best in Christian publishing in order to keep our members informed and up to date. Much more than a book review service, we summarize the contents and thought of each book, so that you can digest a book in minutes. Each summary is an accurate and comprehensive yet brief and concise presentation of the entire book, chapter by chapter, delivered directly to your computer, iPad, or cell phone every week. And in just minutes you will become acquainted with the contents and arguments of each new book. Books at a Glance distinguishes itself as a book summary service that focuses on the newest and the best of Christian publications. Along with these summaries we also provide: book reviews, author interviews, author blogs, etc. In all, we trust this will be a site of real value for you. Check us out. We are excited about our work, and I think you will be too. Blessings, Fred Zaspel

Interview with Douglas J. Moo, Chair of the Committee on Bible Translation (NIV)
I was asked to join the committee in 1996. For two years or so, I was one of the rookies, figuring out just how this process of translation – and particularly the NIV translation – worked. I then served as a regular committee member for almost a decade before becoming chair in 2006. I stepped into very big shoes […] Continue Reading
Book Review:
FIERCE CONVICTIONS: THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF HANNAH MORE, by Karen Swallow Prior
Before beginning to read this book, one of the questions in my mind was if this author was going to say that More was a feminist or how she refused to believe in the teachings of her day. How was she going against the flow? Feminism is such a strong belief – either way, however one means it – and I wanted to see […] Continue Reading
