  • Christ the Lightby David L. Whidden III

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Light is one of the most ancient and significant metaphors adopted by Christianity by which to understand the significance of Jesus Christ. The Easter liturgy, for instance, is marked by beautiful and powerful rituals proclaiming Christ as the light of the world in his death and resurrection. That understanding developed over subsequent centuries... more...

  • Markby David Schnasa Jacobsen

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 20.99

    David Schnasa Jacobsen draws together the strengths of two exegetical approaches to the Gospel of Mark in this volume of the Fortress Biblical Preaching Commentaries series. Jacobsen takes a broad thematic approach to the first Gospel, while at the same time giving exegetical and homiletical insights about individual periscopes in their narrative... more...

  • Narrative Obtrusion in the Hebrew Bibleby Christopher T. Paris

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Narrative critics of the Hebrew Bible often describe the biblical narrators as ?laconic,? ?terse,? or ?economical.? The narrators generally remain in the background, allowing the story to proceed while relying on characters and dialogue to provide necessary information to readers. On those occasions when these narrators add notes to their stories,... more...

  • Reading Theologicallyby Eric D. Barreto

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 13.99

    Reading is one of the basic skills a student needs. But reading is not just an activity of the eyes and the brain. Reading Theologically, edited by Eric D. Barreto, brings together eight seminary educators from a variety of backgrounds to explore what it means to be a reader in a seminary context?to read theologically. Reading theologically involves... more...

  • The Ethics of Death: Religious and Philosophical Perspectives in Dialogueby Lloyd Steffen; Dennis R. Cooley

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 33.99

    For the living, death has a moral dimension. When we confront death and dying in our own lives and in the lives of others, we ask questions about the good, right, and fitting as they relate to our experiences of human mortality. When others die, the living are left with moral questions?questions that often generate personal inquiry as to whether... more...

  • The Future of the Wordby Tiffany Eberle Kriner

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    In scripture, Jesus promises a future that potentially infuses all texts: ?my words will not pass away? (Matt 24:28). This book argues that texts?even literary texts?, have an eschatology, too, a part in God?s purpose for the cosmos. They, with all creation, move toward participation in the new creation, in the Trinity?s expanding, creative love.... more...

  • Idols of Nationsby Roland Boer; Christina Petterson

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 28.99

    Roland Boer and Christina Petterson here produce a critical survey showing that the rise of capitalist theory was shaped by the way different economic philosophers?Smith, Hobbes, Grotius, Malthus, Locke??read the Bible. Invoking Jeremiah (14:22) and Adam Smith?who took the title of his Wealth of Nations from Isaiah (61:6, 12)?they show that early... more...

  • Augustine's Theology of Preachingby Peter T. Sanlon

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    Scholarship has painted many pictures of Augustine?the philosophical theologian, the refuter of heresy, or contributor to doctrines like Original Sin?but the picture of Augustine as preacher, says Sanlon, has been seriously neglected. When academics marginalize the Sermones ad Populum, the real Augustine is not presented accurately. In this study,... more...

  • Recent Developments in Trinitarian Theologyby Christophe Chalamet; Marc Vial

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    Recent Developments in Trinitarian Theology explores the major renaissance that Trinitarian theology has undergone in recent decades. Remarkably, all the main Christian denominations have participated in this, and contemporary Trinitarian theology is a discussion that often crosses over confessional boundaries. English-language theology plays an... more...

  • Playingby Jr. James H. Evans

    Fortress Press 2010; US$ 14.99

    Playing often connotes frivolity. But James Evans, in this insightful study, offers another view: playing lies at the heart of Christian faith in the triune God. Through a close examination of African-American literature and experience, and a re-examination of basic doctrinal affirmations, Evans recovers play as a subversive and even revolutionary... more...
