  • Rituals of Spontaneityby Lori Branch

    Baylor University Press 2006; US$ 44.95

    In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, a newfound love of spontaneity transformed Christian worship and revolutionized the Enlightenment's ''culture of sensibility.'' Rituals of Spontaneity tells the story of how and why spontaneity came to be so revered. Using archival material and works of Bunyan, Shaftesbury, Goldsmith, Smart and Wordsworth,... more...

  • Shakespeare's Christianityby Beatrice Batson

    Baylor University Press 2006; US$ 29.95

    This volume explores the influences of Catholicism and Protestantism in a trio of Shakespeare's tragedies: Julius Caesar, Macbeth and Hamlet. Bypassing the discussion of Shakespeare's personal religious beliefs, Batson instead focuses on distinct footprints left by Catholic and Protestant traditions that underlie and inform Shakespeare's artistic genius. more...

  • Taking Religious Pluralism Seriouslyby Barbara A. McGraw; Jo Renee Formicola

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 39.95

    The clash between the religious right and the secular left undermines any serious debate about the role of religion in American public life. Such strident cultural rhetoric often ignores the positive contributions of America's many religions. By contrast, this volume celebrates America's religious diversity, demonstrating that religious pluralism is... more...

  • The Future of Baptist Higher Educationby Donald D. Schmeltekopf; Dianna M. Vitanza

    Baylor University Press 2006; US$ 34.95

    The Future of Baptist Higher Education investigates four key issues that inform Baptist efforts at higher education - the denominational conflict that has afflicted Baptists since the 1980s, the secularization of higher education in America, the dominance of the market-driven tendencies in American higher education today, and the meaning of Christian... more...

  • The Gift of Storyby Emily Griesinger; Mark Eaton

    Baylor University Press 2006; US$ 39.95

    The Gift of Story brings contemporary literature and film into conversation with the grand Christian narrative. This book examines the specific connections between contemporary cultural meta-narratives (the stories humans typically tell about themselves) and the ideas of hope found in Christianity. Despite postmodernism's skepticism about narrative,... more...

  • The Gospel Hoaxby Stephen C. Carlson

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 24.95

    Secret Mark first became known to modern scholarship in 1958 when a newly hired assistant professor at Columbia University in New York by the name of Morton Smith visited the monastery of Mar Saba near Jerusalem and photographed its fragments. Secret Mark presents what appears to be a valuable, albeit fragmentary, witness to early Christian traditions,... more...

  • The Grammar of Our Civilityby Lee T. Pearcy

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    The pragmatic demands of American life have made higher education's sustained study of ancient Greece and Rome an irrelevant luxury-and this despite the fact that American democracy depends so heavily on classical language, literature, and political theory. In The Grammar of Our Civility, Lee T. Pearcy chronicles how this came to be. Pearcy argues... more...

  • The Problem with Evangelical Theologyby Ben Witherington III

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    There is no doubting the legacy of the Protestant Reformers and their successors. Luther, Calvin, and Wesley not only spawned specific denominational traditions, but their writings have been instrumental in forging a broadly embraced evangelical theology as well. In this volume, Ben Witherington wrestles with some of the big ideas of these major traditional... more...

  • Victorian Fantasyby Stephen Prickett

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 39.95

    Far from being just children's literature, Victorian fantasy is an art form that flourished in opposition to the repressive social and intellectual conditions of ''Victorianism.'' In this fully revised and expanded edition, Stephen Prickett explores the way in which Victorian writers used non-realistic techniques-nonsense, dreams, visions, and the... more...

  • Voyages with Johnby Robert Kysar

    Baylor University Press 2005; US$ 34.95

    In this volume Robert Kysar chronicles the history of interpretation of the Fourth Gospel in the twentieth century. His study reveals four distinct critical approaches to understanding the Fourth Gospel-historical, theological, literary, and postmodernist readings. The use of these methods mirrors the history of biblical studies and influences the... more...
