You Might Already Be a Pietist: Chris Gehrz and Mark Pattie III’s “The Pietist Option”

One of my first weeks at InterVarsity Press, a curious manuscript crossed my desk. A book on Pietism. And not even a merely historical study, but one that purported to connect Pietist ideas to day-to-day life in the 21st century. Though I might have been initially dubious, as I read it, I got more and …

The publishing industry wants you to know about all the new books coming out, we at IVP included. (And there are more books all the time, have you noticed?) But we also know that the good old, golden oldies are important, too, and not just for business — for life. C. S. Lewis had something …

Seeing, Tasting, Smelling, Hearing and Touching the Wonders of God

Seeing, Tasting, Smelling, Hearing and Touching the Wonders of God

Thank you to Jeff Crosby, Associate Publisher and Director of Sales & Marketing for this post. The Advent season we have just journeyed through is one in which our senses are often heightened beyond the norm: The fragrance of lit candles and the sound of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite; the taste of eggnog and the brilliance …
