Using the annual lectionary as his guide, Christian Piatt has put together a devotional that allows us to read through major parts of the Old and New Testaments. Every week has four Scripture readings, glossary terms, deeper thoughts, and a closing prayer.

Start anywhere. Set it down and come back to it. Use it as an in-depth study guide or a daily devotional. There’s no "wrong way" to use Surviving the Bible. Engage ancient texts in new ways that make sense, here and now, maybe for the first time.

Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM, Cap., and Daniel A. Keating introduce readers to one the key thinkers of the fourth century and the chief architect of Christian doctrine: Athanasius. The authors carefully illuminate Athanasius’s crucial text Against the Arians, unfolding the Trinitarian and incarnation framework of Athanasius’s paramount concern (soteriology), and providing, in the second part, a robust map of the reception and influence of Athanasius’s thought—from its immediate impact on the late fourth and fifth centuries (in the Cappadocians and Cyril) to its significance in the Eastern and Western traditions and its reception in contemporary thought.

Biblical studies and the teaching of biblical studies are clearly changing, though it is less clear what the changes mean and how we should evaluate them.

Taken as a whole, the fourteen chapters demonstrate that the foregrounding of gender, placed into its intersectional contexts, offers intriguing and valuable alternative ways of seeing the world and the Bible’s place in it.
