Constructing a Mediating Theology: Affirming the Impassibility and the Passibility of the Triune God
This book is part of the series of the Studies in the Doctrine of God: Exploring Classical and Relational Theism. Two major views have been advanced in the history of Christian theology to describe God’s response to the suffering of the world: divine impassibility and divine passibility. More recently, a third, mediating position between impassibilism and passibilism has arisen which affirms both the impassibility and the passibility of God. This book sets out its own constructive understanding of a mediating position with the help of the dynamic reciprocity model.

Distinguished Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages
Conversations on Canaanite and Biblical Themes: Creation, Chaos and Monotheism
Arguments over the relationship between Canaanite and Israelite religion often derive from fundamental differences in presupposition, methodology, and definition, yet debate typically focuses in on details and encourages polarization between opposing views, inhibiting progress. This volume seeks to initiate a cultural change in scholarly practice by setting up dialogues between pairs of experts in the field who hold contrasting views.
Dr. Craig Blomberg
Professor Emeritus of New Testament
Jesus and the Gospels, Third Edition

Within these pages, is a more in-depth look into eight women who were indispensable to Jesus’ ministry. Some funded his ministry out of their own pockets, some were family members, but all were intensely invested in making Jesus’ ministry a success.
