New Nonfiction Collection

Edited by Jeff Sellars and soon to be released from Pickwick Publications (a division of Wipf and Stock). Here's the TOC (mine is a reprint from a collection a couple years ago, though I did tweak the intro and added a bunch more Scriptural references, so I do think it's stronger):
