Thomas R. Hatina's Fantastic Book - Le Donne

I had the great pleasure of reading an early draft of Tom Hatina's tour de force: New Testament Theology and its Quest for Relevance: Ancient Texts and Modern Readers. Today I was excited to get my copy in the mail.  Here is my back-cover blurb:

“This is at once a necessary introduction to religious studies for students of theology and a nuanced approach to Christian Scripture for religious studies readers.  The genius of this project is that it (a) takes seriously the demand for religious pluralism within the secular West and (b) takes seriously the high view of Scripture demanded by Christians… The author does an admirable job of surveying a vast topic and providing summaries for various movements within the discipline.”
