UPDATE: Thanks for your interest! My inbox overfloweth, so I’m closing this call for reviews. Reviewers will hear from me over the next few days. If you haven’t heard anything by this week, you were not selected. Watch for reviews of these to appear over the next couple of months. We’ll be sure to do something like this again.
As one way to revivify conversations here at churchandpomo.org, I’m looking for a few folks who would be interested in reviewing books for the site. I have one copy of the each of the following that I would be happy to provide to someone willing and able to provide a review here at the site. Reviewers should be conversant with the conversations around the “Church and Postmodern Culture” series, be solid writers, and able to bridge the gap between the academy and the church. Reviewers need not be academics, and I would really love to see some reviewers who would be able to translate the themes of these books for practitioners, but they’ll obviously also have to have some facility with contemporary continental philosophy.
Reviews should be about 700-1000 words (due date TBD). If you’re interested in reviewing one of these books, send me an email, indicate which book interests you, and describe yourself and your expertise/interests just a bit (warning: I stop reading emails after the 2nd paragraph). Be sure to provide a postal address. Please respond by Monday, March 7. I’ll then send copies to our selected reviewers.
Here are the books available for review:
Neal De Roo and John Manoussakis, eds., Phenomenology and Eschatology: Not Yet in the Now (Ashgate, 2009).
