Recommendations in Recent Theology

There’s quite a bit of rich theology being done these days, and I thought I’d like to flag some examples. Though each of these works deserves individual annotations, at the rate I’ve been posting lately, they wouldn’t be forthcoming any time soon. So instead I thought I would share all of them at once. Here, then, are 15 stand-out titles in theology from the past 5 years (give or take).
