BIBLICAL STUDIES AND WISDOM FOR LIVING

Endorsements

“For those of us who have been led and directed by Calvin Seerveld’s books to develop an artistic imagination as we read Scripture, receiving the narrative whole and integrated, this gathering of his occasional writings is sheer bonus. No one in my experience is more prescient in his alertness to the intertextuality of the entire biblical canon. Under his influence I find myself listening to God’s voice in the Scriptures, not just reading God’s words.”    

Eugene H. Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
 

“Vintage Seerveld—gutsy, wise, vivid, provocative, sanctifying. These essays invite us not merely to listen politely to the Bible, but to wrestle with it, and with the God who inspired it. They show us what it means to love God and our neighbor with both heart and mind. While several pieces directly address audiences and questions of particular significance to Reformed Christians, the patterns of thought reflected here will be inspiring and challenging to serious Christian believers in any tradition.”                

John D. Witvliet, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Calvin College, and Calvin Theological Seminary
 

“This collection of Calvin Seerveld’s writings is a sheer gift. Highly intelligent, wide ranging, deeply revealing of the light of God, these lively pieces inform, delight, move the heart. They are at once provocative and reassuring, and they are, above all, wise.”         

Cornelius Plantinga, Jr., senior research fellow, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Calvin Theological Seminary, president emeritus
