Festival of Faith and Writing – The Book Buzz

The Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College last week was extraordinary as always!  As expected, it was a book-lovers delight, overflowing with extraordinary works of all genres.  I didn’t get to attend many sessions, but I talked to many festival-goers and checked in occasionally on social media. Here are ten books that had the FFW crowd buzzing.

The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ 

Fleming Rutledge

Countering our contemporary tendency to bypass Jesus’ crucifixion, Rutledge in these pages examines in depth all the various themes and motifs used by the New Testament evangelists and apostolic writers to explain the meaning of the cross of Christ. She mines the classical writings of the Church Fathers, the medieval scholastics, and the Reformers as well as more recent scholarship, while bringing them all into contemporary context.

Widely known for her preaching, Rutledge seeks to encourage preachers, teachers, and anyone else interested in what Christians believe to be the central event of world history.
