The Weekly Hit List: June 21, 2013

A Public Faith by Miroslav Volf was reviewed by Sarita Fowler with J. Scott Horrell for Bibliotheca Sacra.

“This work calls for a close reading but is not out of reach of most readers.

“As he envisions a harmonious world, or the need to strive for one, Volf emerges as a majestic thinker and architect for how public Christian expression can function.

“With careful reading A Public Faith will benefit anyone interested in the intersection of Christianity and other religions.”
