God’s Provision, Humanity’s Need: The Gift of Our Dependence

Christa McKirland

(Baker Academic)

In a world often consumed with self-sufficiency, this book reminds us that humans have an innate need for the grace of God’s personal presence. Christa McKirland, an author doing research at the intersection of Christian theology and the sciences, argues for a new way of understanding the image of God that might precondition science-engaged theology. She makes an exegetical and theological case that human beings were created to need the presence of God in order to flourish. Such a need is not a liability but our greatest human dignity.

Pride, Politics, and Humility in Augustine’s City of God 

Mary Keys

(Cambridge UP)

This book is the first to interpret and reflect on Augustine’s seminal argument concerning humility and pride, especially in politics and philosophy, in The City of God. Mary Keys shows how contemporary readers have much to gain from engaging Augustine’s lengthy argument on behalf of virtuous humility. She also demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the classical and Christian philosophical-rhetorical modes of discourse in The City of God enables readers to appreciate and evaluate Augustine’s nuanced case for humility in politics, philosophy, and religion. Comprised of a series of interpretive essays and commentaries following Augustine’s own order of segments and themes in The City of God, Keys’ volume unpacks the author’s complex text and elucidates its challenge, meaning, and importance for contemporary readers. It also illuminates a central, yet easily underestimated theme with perennial relevance in a classic work of political thought and religion.
