Storied Revelations: Parables, Imagination, and George MacDonald’s Christian Fiction

by Gisela H. Kreglinger

ISBN: 9780718893293

“She absolutely and successfully extrapolates how MacDonald used the parabolic form. Kreglinger demonstrates how as a Calvinistic Scot, as a Victorian, as a poet and theologian, George MacDonald observed this desensitization process at work in late nineteenth century Victorian society. All around an excellent study”.

Paul Brazier, in “The Heythrope Journal, vol. 56, issue 2, March 2015

Jeremiah among the Prophets

By Jack R. Lundbom

ISBN: 9780227174074

“This slim volume contains a condensed and popular version of Lundbom’s substantial research on the book of Jeremiah […]. I enjoyed reading the book. It is well written and eminently accessible. It manages to give a chronological and coherent outline of Jeremiah’s life, an accomplishment indeed given the structure of the book of Jeremiah. […].”

Luther’s Revolution

The Political Dimensions of Martin Luther’s Universal Priesthood

By Nathan Montover

ISBN: 9780227680148

“[…] Montover guides the reader through an issue-oriented discussion of the political discontent of Germany to contextualise the political ramifications covering the major issues like indulgences, the titular obligation of the Holy Roman Empire and foreign taxation schemes. Montover is most insightful in the frequently neglected discussion on the gravinum, the mechanisms of German grievances towards the papacy. […] Montover’s work adds yet another voice to the debate on the political ramifications of Luther’s theology and to what extent they governed his doctrinal positions. […] This book will lend itself to students of Luther and the reformation in conjunction with other studies in Luther’s political thought.”
