Christian's Library Press and Oliver O'Donovan

I'm delighted to announce that Christian's Library Press has signed on as a co-sponsor of our forthcoming event with Oliver O'Donovan.

CLP_Logo4They are doing excellent work retrieving overlooked resources within the Reformed theological tradition, resources that need broader dissemination within the evangelical world--and here's the kicker--even among the non-Reformed.  I've long argued that the doctrine of creation (still!) needs rehabilitating within the evangelical world, which is where many of the resources Christian Library's Press are going to find their roots.

So please do consider them in your ongoing search for wisdom.

And I do hope that you'll join us on October 8th, or tell your friends who live in the DC area to come out in your stead.

If you keep up with us here for any length of time in the future, you'll quickly become acquainted with the work of Oliver O'Donovan. His influence on North American Christianity is often overlooked, but pronounced.  Ken Myers of Mars Hill Audio Journal (who is hosting the dialogue) has long been a fan of O'Donovan's work, and it turns out O'Donovan had an influence on the work of Andy Crouch as well.  I had long suspected that to be the case, given the similarity in their concerns, and so am happy to see Andy mention him in his new book.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.
