Hi

Is this the new reformation study bible that ligonier is releasing this spring, and is already accepting preorders? 

Or is this the 10 year old version from 2005? If the latter, I would be a bit disappointed, since it then would look like you want to make a sale of an old version an then in a few months make us an offer to upgrade to the new version. 

 

Also all of the booklets that accordance 'offer' for free with a purchase of 30 US$ are being given for free electronically as ebooks in the last few months by ligonier itself. 

 

Regards

Sacha Zemp

Hi Sacha!

 

I hope you're not too disappointed, but this is the 2005 Reformation Study Bible. We do not have any kind of advanced copy of a new edition to offer something different. If you keep up with our sales each week, you'll notice that we will usually include titles from our back catalog that complement any new titles we are also offering. 

 

As for the Crucial Questions series, the Accordance edition is different from the version offered by Ligonier because our developers have thoroughly examined the etext we received and identified five different kinds of text, tagging everything accordingly. You can run very specific searches for Titles, Content, Scripture, Transliteration, and Page Numbers that could not be done in a standard e-reader. 

 

Thanks for your questions!

Hmmm. Will there be an Arminian bundle released to bring balance to the Force?

Indeed. I know theological neutrality is impossible (for anyone, let alone a purveyor of theological works), but a balancing from here on out would be nice. Similar suggestion voiced here.

The Ligonier titles we've added were in response to multiple requests over time. Alistair & Abram, what would an ideal "Arminian bundle" look like in your opinion?

[Chuckle] I often feel this way when I am looking for good resources. The trouble is that Arminian (the preferred term is "Wesleyan") scholars generally produce fewer scholarly works, especially in the area of systematic theology. Scholarship is highly valued in Reformed circles, less so among other evangelical Christian groups. I wonder if that is because they (er, ah, "we") tend to put more emphasis on evangelization and missions?

Actually, we've got a collection of titles by Roger Olson that are in the pipeline. I assume that counts if one of the titles is "Arminian Theology," right? ;)

Although I personally eschew the label of Reformed/Calvinist or Arminian/Wesleyan for myself (although I've had representatives from both groups accuse me of being the other), here are some Wesleyan suggestions for consideration whom I believe would make good additions to the Accordance Library (and balance The Force for Alistair):

 

Kenneth Schenck

Thomas Oden (including his excellent Systematic Theology)

Ben Witherington (we added his NT theology, ​The Indelible Image, recently).

…what would an ideal "Arminian bundle" look like in your opinion?

I have no idea what an Arminian/Wesleyan bundle might look like, and I have no theological axe to grind about it.

 

I was just thinking "Reformed/Calvinist… meh…"

 

I like options, and I like to have access to different opinions.My comment was for balance, so that modules are not overly skewed in any one theological direction.

Dr. J, according to my lecturers that is exactly the case.

When I was a faculty member at North Central University, more than a decade ago, we were reviewed for regional accreditation by a team led by a woman from Indiana Wesleyan.  We had a great conversation together about the fact that our colleges are so concerned about turning out additional pastors, youth pastors, and missionaries, we often did not allow faculty enough time to research and write. From what I hear from my friends at the financially-pressed Christian colleges, today the situation is even worse. None of our supporting denominations consider scholarly publications as a sign of success, at least not enough to support it. New churches, increased attendance, more missionaries, those are goals worth supporting. (sigh)

Like Alistair, my comment, too, was just in favor of theological balance in general. I don't have particular Arminian/Wesleyan/etc. titles in mind, but I do remember recently being excited at seeing (at last) a book in Accordance that addressed liberation theology--only to find out the book is pretty much just a takedown of that important line of thinking, without there being primary sources in Accordance describing liberation theology first (like Gutierrez or Cone).

 

I know you can't offer everything for everyone (or even something for everyone, perhaps), which I guess is one reason you all keep these forums! :) Glad to hear from Rick that some other stuff is in the pipeline.

I was very disappointed in the turn this thread has taken. I was surprised at the pettiness and the unfounded generalizations by people who frankly should know better.

I apologize, Randy. That is probably my fault.

 

I prefer to read resources from a wide variety of perspectives myself, but am often missing ones that share my own perspective. I guess I allowed my own personal frustrations to leak out here on the forum.

 

I promise to be more circumspect in the future.
