Book Reviews

This page will offer relatively brief reviews of books that are of interest to me and that pertain to the main topics of this website: Biblical Theology and biblical scholarship vis-à-vis Evangelical commitments. These reviews will not be as lengthy as one might find in other venues, and certainly not as detailed as in academic journals. I would rather focus on providing succinct summaries of the books’ contents and then offer some points of evaluation, hopefully to motivate interested persons to read the books more thoroughly.
