April 2013 Best Sellers

Here are the best sellers for April 2013 from my department. There are a few things I really like about this list. First, it’s probably the most ecumenical list I’ve ever had which is a tribute to our Local Explorations in Ecumenical Dialogue series. (By the way, we are proud to host Fr. John Geaney for tonight’s session on Roman Catholicism. Fr. Geaney is the director of the Catholic Information Center here in Grand Rapids.) This list includes two books on John Wesley, one on Calvinism and one on the new Pope. That’s a pretty wide variety. Second, I think this is one of those rare occasions where an author has two entries on the list. In this case we have two authors with James K.A. Smith with #1 and #5 and Thomas Oden (as editor) with #8 and #9. Over the next two days I’ll cover my best selling Bibles for Jan – Apr.
