New books from friends and colleagues

New books on the bookshelf from the past couple of week authored and edited by friends and colleagues (two of which were free copies arriving in the mail yesterday and today).

First up Spiritual Complaint: The Theology and Practice of Lament edited by Miriam Bier and Tim Bulkeley which came out of an interdisciplinary colloquium on lament back in 2011. I’ve got a chapter in there titled “Lament in an age of new media”. Links below:


“Spiritual Complaint: The Theology and Practice of Lament” (Miriam Bier, Tim Bulkeley) – Amazon.com

Secondly, Nicola Hoggard Creegan’s work on theology, animal suffering and problem of evil looks like a good read, especially for those interested in the theological implications of evolutionary frameworks and the science-religion interface.


“Animal Suffering and the Problem of Evil” (Nicola Hoggard Creegan) – Amazon.com
“Animal Suffering and the Problem of Evil” (Nicola Hoggard Creegan) – Oxford University Press

And finally, a collection of essays from a range of NZ writers – theologians, philosophers, scientists – on new-atheism from the TANSA meetings etc. Something to dip into from time to time.


“Taking Rational Trouble Over the Mysteries: Reactions to Atheism” (Nicola Hoggard Creegan and Andrew Shepherd) – Amazon.com
