I just read a notice from Andy Naselli regarding a new book by D. A. Carson on the doctrine of Scripture.  Here's the title and description:

It reprints and slightly updates five essays and five reviews:
  1. Approaching the Bible
  2. Recent Developments in the Doctrine of Scripture
  3. Unity and Diversity in the New Testament: The Possibility of Systematic Theology
  4. Redaction Criticism: On the Legitimacy and Illegitimacy of a Literary Tool
  5. Is the Doctrine of Claritas Scripturae Still Relevant Today?
  6. Three Books on the Bible: A Critical Review
  7. Three More Books on the Bible: A Critical Review
  8. Review of Jeffrey L. Sheler, Is the Bible True?
  9. Review of Alan G. Padgett and Patrick R. Keifert, eds., But Is It All True?

(HT: Andy Naselli)

I went to the Crossway website to see if they listed any further details, but I could not find any.  I'm sure it will be posted shortly.  However, while I was there I browsed through their list of forthcoming titles and the following books caught my eye:
