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

Christology: Ancient and Modern CHRISTOLOGY ANCIENT AND MODERN: EXPLORATIONS IN CONSTRUCTIVE DOGMATICS

Karen Swallow Prior Interview with Karen Swallow Prior, FIERCE CONVICTIONS: THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF HANNAH MORE – POET, REFORMER, ABOLITIONIST
Yes, writing a book like this requires such a tremendous investment of time, resources, and thought that one can’t be unaffected by the process. It’s hard to express in concrete terms the impact.
