Dr. Hovey's two new books

Dr. Craig Hovey has two books out for the summer! In July, Eerdmans is publishing  his book Bearing True Witness: Truthfulness in Christian Practice, Eerdmans, 2011
If proclaiming the gospel is at root a matter of telling the truth about the way things are, then Christian witnesses are paradigmatic truth-tellers. In Bearing True Witness Craig Hovey engages modern theology, philosophy, and ethics — including the work of Nietzsche, Foucault, and MacIntyre — to consider how Christians see, recognize, embrace, and bear witness to the truth of Jesus Christ.
If you are going to the beach before you can get your hands on Bearing True Witness, then not to worry because Hovey contributed the chapter “Christian Ethics as Good News,” in  Imaginative Apologetics: Theology, Philosophy and the Catholic Tradition, ed. Andrew Davison, SCM Press, 2011. This volume hit the book stands last month (in England).
Imaginative Apologetics draws on much that is most vibrant in contemporary theology to develop Christian apologetics for the present day. The contributors are leaders in their fields. They represent a confident approach to theology, grounded in a deep respect for the theological tradition of the Church. They display a perceptive interest in philosophy, and unlike many works of apologetics their interest is in the philosophy of the present day, not only that of previous centuries
