InterVarsity Press "Box-o-Guilt"

Every quarter, InterVarsity Press graces IV staffworkers with what I like to call the "box-o-guilt," the "bog" for short. The bog contains new, free books from InterVarsity Press. This is great for us, but it also means that there are a half-dozen new books that we feel the pressure to read or peruse. Hence, the "box-o-guilt."

The quarter's bog contains the following titles. The first four are group discussion guides. Of the lot, I think Gracism intrigues me the most. I'll post book notes on the ones I end up reading.

Who Was Jesus? by Scot McKnight

Can I Trust the Bible? by Darrell L. Bock

What is Truth? by Paul Copan and Mark Linville

Is God Real? by William Lane Craig and Charles Taliaferro

Jesus without Religion: What did he say? What did he do? What's the point? by Rick James

Misquoting Truth: A Guide to the Fallacies of Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus by Timothy Paul Jones

Gracism: The Art of Inclusion by David A. Anderson

In any case, Jason, I've discovered why you haven't been reading that much thick theology lately. Go read some Calvin! :-)

Harry Potter is the more likely culprit. :-)

Doesn't John Owen count as thick theology?

W. Travis McMaken said...

Owen counts, but I didn't see him on your list.

why do so many books today have questions for titles?

Unknown said...

He's on my "currently reading" bar. The stuff I listed here is just the stuff that came in the mail!

Unknown said...

That's a great question, John. I think it has something to do with our sense that our opinion matters... ;-)

W. Travis McMaken said...

It probably has to do with marketing too in that it tries to demonstrate that you need to read that book (in order to answer this question which, now that you have seen it on the book, you think is a good question).
