Baker Publishing Group Signs Miroslav Volf
Ada, Mich. (June 20, 2016)—Brazos Press, a division of Baker Publishing Group, is pleased to announce that they have signed a one-book contract with Miroslav Volf. Coauthored by Matthew Croasmun, Volf’s book will make an incisive and eloquent case for a fresh vision of what theology is and how it can function to help establish and participate in a new conversation about what makes a flourishing life.
“We at Brazos Press are delighted to be partnering with Miroslav Volf on yet a third book,” states Robert N. Hosack, executive editor, Brazos Press. “He is one of the premier voices in public theology today, and we are honored to be working with him and coauthor Matthew Croasmun as they argue that theology is today the very discipline we need most in order to address our most urgent questions in a world of ‘competing universalisms.’”
Miroslav Volf (Dr. Theol., Dr. Theol. Habil., University of Tübingen) is the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School and founding director of Yale Center for Faith & Culture. Volf is a leading expert on the public role of religion. He is the author, coauthor, or editor of over twenty books, including Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World.
