How should the contemporary academy be viewed? What kind of scholarship are evangelical or evangelical-connected thinkers producing? And what is the theological vision grounding such scholarship? […]

Brooke Ventura Interviews Crossway and Zondervan WHICH CAME FIRST, the publisher or the book? Well, the book, obviously—right? There were books long before there were publishing houses, but publishing houses have been around a lot longer than we realize. The Epic of Gilgamesh wouldn’t exist (as a book, that is) without the asipu (the scholar-doctor-astrologists) […]
