“Live” . . .
Yesterday, Campus Resources from InterVarsity Press: 2013-2014 Academic Year Edition went live in the media section of the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN)’s website and on ESN’s Facebook Wall. Now it’s on the blog 🙂
This resource stems from a desire to place in your hands a glimpse of the classics, the excellent practical material, and the new releases InterVarsity Press (IVP) provides as we seek to
- grow in InterVarsity‘s Graduate & Faculty Ministry‘s Four Commitments
- bless InterVarsity’s Graduate & Faculty Ministry’s focused ministries — explore the back side of the resource sheet 🙂
“Living” . . .
Thank-you to those who have been part of the conversation to keep Campus Resources from InterVarsity Press as cutting edge as possible, please forgive me for not being able to “fit it all in.” I’m keeping all the material on file for the 2014 – 2015 Academic Year.
Whether or not you’ve been part of the conversation in the past, I desire to receive your suggestions for refinement of the resource sheet. In addition to a continual review of the titles offered, I’m exploring the creation of focused postcard size pieces for disciplines, topics, and relevant new releases. If you’re interested in this project, please let me know. Note: I’m particularly excited about partnering in the development of campus, conferencing, and/or special event resources.
Furthermore, if you (possibly with a group of friends on-line and/or on-campus) desire to review any of these books for the Emerging Scholars Network Blog and/or participate in updating media resources such as the Core Bibliography, Resources on Science and Religion, Suggested Readings for Undergraduates, please contact me. I’m really looking forward to the continued growth of our community of learning this coming academic year. Note: Some of you may find Just Do It: ESN Reading Groups on Campus of inspiration and campus application.

Tom Grosh IV says
I just received an email recommendation of a book to add back to the list: “Science, Creation and the Bible – Reconciling Rival Theories of Origins” (http://www.ivpress.com/cgi-ivpress/book.pl/code=3889).* Word is that a number of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship staff have recommended this book to students who have concerns about the science/creation issue. Great to receive this testimony! I am inspired to write a post asking readers to share what InterVarsity Press books they have found most helpful in their following of Christ and why. Stay tuned as I refine this idea . . . maybe coupling this will some book giveaways 🙂
*”Physicist Richard Carlson and biblical scholar Tremper Longman III address the longstanding problem of how to relate scientific description of the beginnings of the universe with the biblical creation passages found in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Experts in their respective fields, these two authors provide a way to resolve the seeming conflicting descriptions by showing the meaning of the biblical texts as well as the meaning of scientific description.” — To learn more about “Science, Creation and the Bible” visit http://www.ivpress.com/cgi-ivpress/book.pl/code=3889.
