Whatever plans you had this summer, cancel them. Enns_InspirationIncarn

Late this summer, Baker Academic will be releasing the 10th anniversary edition of Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament (1st edition still available here).

In addition to the new cover, this edition,

  • has some slight revisions for clarity (not content),
  • an expanded bibliography,
  • a preface explaining the rationale for this edition, and most of all,


  • a 6500 word reflective postscript that addresses various matters concerning the book’s reception, my thoughts on some criticisms of the book, and my continued positive vision for the book’s future.

It’s been an “interesting” 10 years for me since I&I came out. I am honored that Baker made the decision to publish this anniverary edition, and I am eager to see the book continue generating conversations and encouraging pilgrims on their journeys of faith.

As we get closer to the release date, I will blog more about the book to give a sense of what I cover in the postscript.
