Promising New Book Release

Promising New Book Release from IVP Academic

Incarnational Humanism: a philosophy of culture for the church in the world. IVP Academic, 2012. by Jens Zimmerman, Canada Research Chair of Interpretation, Religion and Culture in Dept. of English, Trinity Western University

Caption: Having left its Christian roots behind, the West faces a moral, spiritual and intellectual crisis. It has little left to maintain its legacy of reason, freedom, human dignity and democracy. Far from capitulating, Jens Zimmerman believes the church has a new opportunity to speak a surprising word into the postmodern situation–a word grounded in the incarnation itself. Retrieving  an ancient Christian humanism for our time, he draws on the rich resources found in Scripture and its theological interpreters ranging from Irenaeus and Augustine to de Lubac and Bonhoeffer.

Dr Zimmerman is an upcoming UBC  GFCF speaker in February 2013  http://ubcgfcf.com
