SPCK cover for the Second Edition of "The Evangelical Universalist"

I have just received this cover from SPCK. Which reminds me I need to crack on and write the blooming thing! Time is running out fast and . . . eeeek! Anyway, here is the cover for the UK. US cover will be about three months away

The biblical hope that God's love will save us all sounds a bit tentative & vague to me...

How about A Biblical Theology case for the Christocentric salvation of everyone?

maybe the way it is
speaks better to
"hoi poloi"

The cover is quite weak. I thought the US wipf and stick cover was good. And the cover for Universal Salvation: the current debate was gorgeous. How about something a bit more funky this time? : )

I meant to say that the US cover of US: the current debate was gorgeous.

I love TEU but don't think it's aimed at "hoi poloi"? :) Not saying they won't still benefit from the book, just that it would be heavy going for a young Christian, or people who aren't used to thinking about theological issues.

I also love the cover of "All Shall Be Well" and would love to see new front cover for the UK TEU (the US one is good, although a little ambiguous).

Excellent cover : -)

Re: the subtitle. This has always been the subtitle of the UK edition. It's not an editon for the second edition.

I like it. The hope in question is the biblical variety (i.e., that which does not disappoint)

Robin Parry said...

I like this cover too. It is intended to be very similar to the first edition but different enough to catch the eye.

Marc said...

What will be changed/added to the second edition? Will it change enough to warrant purchase if I already have the first edition?

Robin Parry said...

Marc

the main text will remain the same. The following are new

1. foreword
2. a long preface
3. a long appendix offering some responses to critics of the book
4. a scripture index

zat iz it.

Robin

Thanks. Those all look like good additions. A scripture index alone adds much value. A friend and I regularly complain that scripture indices should be mandatory for Christian books...
