In his diverse body of writings, Presbyterian pastor and professor Peter J. Leithart creatively engages Scripture, theology, and culture. His fresh voice continues ancient discussions for twenty-first-century minds. This collection pulls together three volumes that highlight the varied facets of Leithart’s writing.
First, the festschrift The Glory of Kings gathers a variety of essays honoring the Reformed theologian and biblical scholar James Jordan. In Shining Glory, Leithart examines the biblical and theological motifs of the 2011 film The Tree of Life, sharing insights for understanding its complexities. And finally in The Priesthood of the Plebs, Leithart offers a theology of baptism, arguing that the coming of the New Creation in Jesus Christ has profound and revolutionary implications for social order—implications symbolized and effected in the ritual of baptism.
