Divine ProvidenceTerrance Tiessen interacts with Four View on Divine Providence in his post on Restorationist and Open Theist responses to a determinist model of providence.

"As Jowers pointed out in his introduction, there is sufficient complexity in the biblical text to make resolution of this long-standing difference of belief within the Christian church a daunting task. Nevertheless, I am thankful for a book like this because the issue is so important that we cannot give up the quest. Our faith must continue to seek understanding."

Prayson Daniel reviewed Christian Apologetics at With all I Am

"I highly recommend this book to every Christian and non-Christians who are passionately exploring the reasons for believing in Christian God. This primary sources collection of Christian’s apologias in one volume will remove obstacles hindering faith in Christ and indeed bolster faith in those who already believe."

And Kevin Fiske provides an overview of the upcoming Job and Deuteronomy volumes of the NIV Application Commentary.

"In the realm of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible studies, two professors from Wheaton are releasing what look to be promising volumes in Zondervan’s NIVAC series.

Daniel Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, has authored the Deuteronomy volume.  For those who have been unacquainted with Deuteronomy, Block’s words from the section dealing with the contemporary significance of Deut. 1:1-5 should be both encouraging and enlightening in terms of the book’s overall significance… 

John Walton’s commentary on Job is another forthcoming offering in the NIVAC series.  Dr. Walton is Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton, and one of evangelicalism’s foremost scholars on the Hebrew Bible and ancient Near Eastern literature.  I had the pleasure of having Dr. Walton for Ancient Near Eastern Backgrounds of the Old Testament while at Wheaton.  His careful scholarship, reverence for the God of the Bible, and desire for others to appreciate the Old Testament Scriptures, I’m certain, will come through in this volume."
