A UNIVERSITY FOR THE PEOPLE by Robert E. VanderVennen
VanderVennen traces the ups and downs of establishing the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto, Canada, a place that resists non-governmental education. He describes how the Dutch immigrants who dreamed of a place where all learning would be Scripturally-directed watched their dreams come to fruition. This fine chronicle of the Institute’s first four decades of service exhibits the exciting story of the flourishing of a unique academic community.

ACQUAINTED WITH THE LIGHT by Mike Vanden Bosch
Mike Vanden Bosch remembers how, as a young boy growing up on a farm in Iowa, he heard news of World War II. He also has memories of the hardworking farmers who lived nearby, and he recalls the wild animals that he encountered on a daily basis. He has, in recent years, experienced the sting of death and the power of God’s grace. These memories and more serve as inspiration for the poems in Vanden Bosch’s latest book of poetry Acquainted with the Light.

ANGLING THE ENGLISH STREAM by David Schelhaas
“Words can be as slippery as minnows,” says Schelhaas. “No matter how we try to squeeze them into our hands and make them stay put, they refuse. In my own short life I have seen a number of words dramatically shift in meaning.”

From alas to yahoo, Schelhaas spotlights 100 common words in Angling in the English Stream: 100 Ordinary English Words: Caught, Filleted, and Served Up in Tasty Little Essays, usually introducing the word with a personal anecdote, then delving into the word’s historical roots, and often concluding essays with analogies to the Christian life.

ART HISTORY: SUNDRY WRITINGS AND OCCASIONAL LECTURES by SEERVELD, CALVIN G.
ISBN: 978-1-940567-03-7 / paperback / 314 pages / $20.00

The essays in Art History Revisited follow a general course from the historiography of philosophy to the historiography of art and aesthetics to analyses of individual artists like Antoine Watteau and Gerald Folkerts and the theory and practice of artist/aestheticians like William Hogarth and Anton Raphael Mengs. As this selection of essays attests, Seerveld is both well-versed in the history of art and has made significant contributions to the field as well.

BIBLICAL STUDIES AND WISDOM FOR LIVING: SUNDRY WRITINGS AND OCCASIONAL LECTURES by SEERVELD, CALVIN
ISBN: 978-1-940567-06-8 / paperback / 446 pages / $25.00

In these 30-plus essays, talks, and articles, Seerveld opens Scripture in a variety of life contexts in which God’s people find themselves today. In both his professional studies and popular lectures Seerveld seeks to explicate, both devoutly and playfully, a biblical wisdom for daily living, convinced as he is that the Holy Spirit-given biblical writings bespeak God’s everlasting care and wisdom for us corporeal mortals. Just as Susanna Oppliger’s ceramic angel (on the cover) shelters the exhausted, scared Elijah (1998), waking him up to carry on the Lord’s appointed tasks, just so, suggests Seerveld, following Jesus Christ through this wonder-filled, troubled lifetime bodes strength and hope for the morrow.
