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

Author Interview
Andreas Kostenberger Interview with Andreas and Margaret Kostenberger, authors of GOD’S DESIGN FOR MAN AND WOMAN: A BIBLICAL-THEOLOGICAL SURVEY
Each generation has its own issues that rise to the fore, and surely “gender questions” would rank high on anyone’s list. It’s odd, in a way, because these questions are so foundational to life and who we are – we might think that questions so essential have long been settled! But of course in a fallen […] Continue Reading
Author Interview
The Happy Christian Interview with David Murray, author of HAPPY CHRISTIAN: TEN WAYS TO BE A JOYFUL BELIEVER IN A GLOOMY WORLD
The “Positive Mental Attitude” craze some years back always struck me as having a particularly shallow ring to it. The “Just be happy!” happiness it appeared to foster seemed artificial. But then those grumpy and forlorn Christians (sorry, I don’t know how better to describe them) certainly didn’t off […] Continue Reading

The Authority of the Gospel THE AUTHORITY OF THE GOSPEL: EXPLORATIONS IN MORAL AND POLITICAL THEOLOGY IN HONOR OF OLIVER O’DONOVAN, eds. Robert Song and Brent Waters

Designed For Joy DESIGNED FOR JOY: HOW THE GOSPEL IMPACTS MEN AND WOMEN, IDENTITY AND PRACTICE, eds. Jonathan Parnell and Owen Strachan
As our culture rushes away from its traditional – not to mention Christian – moorings with regard to all things gender-related it becomes increasingly important for us to have a clear understanding of God’s intentions in creating humanity male and female.
