Newest Pillar Commentary at 50% Off!

The volume on 1 Corinthians is now available. Ciampa I’m not familiar with, but I have seen some of Rosner’s work, and I would therefore recommend it. Of course, all the Pillar commentaries have been excellent. Right now, WTS bookstore is offering it for 50% off.

    Maybe it’s just me, but does anybody find the juxtaposition of the book and the Westminster Seminary seal as, well, not quite right? Maybe I’m being an old and narrow reactionary, but I find the picture jarring. That was especially the case with the newest Keller book. Oh, I guess you need to be getting the e-mails from WTS bookstore to see these.

    I find the cover of a book hard up against an institution’s seal is a very visual statement of endorsement that is hopefully not the case, in either of these titles. Rev. Keller does not speak for or represent WTS, nor does this Pillar commentary, fine as it might be.

    Maybe it’s just me? If so, don’t leave this up. Or pray for me!

    That thought never even occurred to me. WTS bookstore sells some heretical books, as all good bookstores would. Pastors need to know about and be able to defeat heresies that attack the church. I wouldn’t interpret that juxtaposition as an endorsement.

    Of course the WTS Bookstore sells academic books and that includes some atrocious heterodoxy. Shucks, I have Bultmann, etc. in my personal library. I was the Asst Manager (Purchaser) of the WTS Bookstore for 3 years (1978-1981). Obviously we weren’t selling & marketing ourselves on-line, and I don’t think this is a matter of age. I would be more cautious in the possible message an image might send.

    It’s comes across to me as “what does the graphic (combination of graphics) say.” The cover of a book, cheek by jowl with The Seal of WTS, says something, or ought to be reserved for explicit endorsements. If the image next to a book was Machen Hall, or the like, it would not have produce that reaction in me.

    I guess it’s just me… I would be more cautious in the possible message an image might send. I guess I am a narrow old curmudgeon!
