Archbishop Van Thuans notes from prison are extraordinary. For thirteen years, his writings were smuggled out of his cell and circulated among Christians and non-Christians alike. People shared his messages to take up Van Thuans challenge that the Vietnamese people bring the Church into the world by their love for one another. He wrote, It would be so wonderful if God required us only to love him. However, he has chosen also to require the difficult obligation to love our neighbor. Van Thuan calls for a deep examination of conscience. You proclaim that all you do is for God and for the Church. Very well. But can you stand in his presence and honestly say that you are working completely for him? His directives are practical. Your time of prayer is your period of intimacy with God, who is your Father. It is a time for the heart, not the head. These 1,001 reflections are pearls of great price. If lived out, they will change your life.

In recent years, the disciplines of biblical studies and systematic theology have grown apart and largely lost the means of effective communication with one another. Unfortunately, this relational disconnect affects more than just these particular fields of study; it impacts the life of the church as a whole. The first St. Andrews Conference on Scripture and Theology brought leading biblical scholars and systematic theologians together in conversation, seeking to bridge the biblical-theological gap.

By considering not only the “hope” (elpis) word-field but other expressions and statements of hope, as well as the opposites of hope—despair and presumption—this work demonstrates how Paul's concern to awaken and strengthen the hope of his Christian audience pervades and unifies the entire Letter to the Romans.

No doubt, it is common to hear Christians today declaring their allegiance to God's kingdom. But what does this actually entail, and what difference does it make? In his characteristically provocative and daring way, Christoph Blumhardt articulates a vision of God's kingdom that turns much of our understanding of modern Christianity upside-down. In the present volume, available in English for the first time, Blumhardt leads readers to look at the gospel anew, challenging us to follow Jesus in a way that makes God's reign a reality, here and now. Bypassing vague notions of spirituality, as well as transcending simplistic approaches to faith, Blumhardt inspires us to actually live under the rule and reign of God.
