Heart. Soul. Mind. Strength.: An Anecdotal History of InterVarsity Press, 1947-2007
"Some publishers tell you what to believe. Other publishers tell you what you already believe. But InterVarsity Press helps you believe," says J. I. Packer. As an extension of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, InterVarsity Press serves those in the university, the church and the world by publishing resources that equip and encourage people to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord in all of life. The history of twentieth-century evangelicalism cannot be understood apart from the authors and books that shaped it. Leading figures like apologist Francis Schaeffer, theologian J.I. Packer and pastor-scholar John Stott helped a generation of church leaders to think more biblically. Landmark books such as Ron Sider's Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger and James W. Sire's The Universe Next Door challenged Christians to engage the world around them. For many who took their Christianity seriously, the authoritative voice of evangelical Christianity came through one influential book publisher--InterVarsity Press. Andy Le Peau and Linda Doll provide an anecdotal history of InterVarsity Press, from its origins as the literature division of a campus ministry to its place as a prominent evangelical publishing house. Chronicled here are the stories, people and events that made IVP what it is today. Recording good times and bad, celebrations and challenges alike, they place IVP in its historical context and demonstrate its contribution to modern evangelical Christianity. Distinctive as a leading publisher of thoughtful Christian books, IVP stands as a model of holistic, integrative Christianity for the whole person--heart, soul, mind and strength.
