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

Finding and Seeking: Ethics as Theology FINDING AND SEEKING: ETHICS AS THEOLOGY VOLUME 2, by Oliver O’Donovan
In this second volume of his “Ethics as Theology” series, Oliver O’Donovan seeks “to follow moral thought from self-awareness to decision through the sequence of virtues from faith to hope” (ix). While it seems simple at the outset, the actual product is quite dense and complex. O’Donovan masterfully […] Continue Reading
From Creation to New Creation FROM CREATION TO NEW CREATION: ESSAYS IN HONOR OF G. K. BEALE, edited by Daniel Gurtner and Benjamin Gladd
My introduction to academic biblical theology came through reading G. K. Beale’s The Temple and the Church’s Mission. A prospective seminarian at the time, I was overwhelmed with Beale’s attention to textual detail, exegetical ability in both testaments, and sweeping command of the whole of Scripture […] Continue Reading
 The Presence of God THE PRESENCE OF GOD: ITS PLACE IN THE STORYLINE OF SCRIPTURE AND THE STORY OF OUR LIVES, by J. Ryan Lister
At times within the discipline of Biblical Theology people can get enticed (and distracted?) by subtle and tenuous thematic links and connections throughout Scripture that have no real practical pay-off. Not so with J. Ryan Lister’s new book. The Presence of God: Its place in the storyline of Scripture and the story of our li […] Continue Reading

Did God Really Say? DID GOD REALLY SAY? AFFIRMING THE TRUTHFULNESS AND TRUSTWORTHINESS OF SCRIPTURE, edited by David Garner
Our Lord’s declaration that God’s Word is truth (John 17:17) demands the reaffirmation of each next generation of Christians. Yet more is required than just that: the inspiration, trustworthiness, and clarity of Scripture also deserve restatement in light of new forms of denial. For example, if God is the principal au […] Continue Reading
