My THIRD book under contract . . .
I’m delighted to announce that what will be my third book is now under contract with Wipf & Stock. This will be a bit different; I am co-writing it with my teacher, mentor, and friend at Augustana College, Murray Haar. It is on the Holocaust and wrestles with the religious and theological questions that event raises for Judaism and Christianity. The book will be a conversation/debate, with each of us weighing in and responding to central questions and one another. Current, tentative title: Circling the Fire: A Jew and Christian Debate the Holocaust. Tentative manuscript delivery date: 2015. This allows me to focus my current energies on the Eerdmans book I’m writing, An Untamable God: Reading the Old Testament’s Troubling Texts Theologically.
