This original and unusual book investigates a continuing Johannine apocalyptic tradition, represented in three strange Greek texts that are also linked to a Coptic manuscript.

This book is about how to read Paul's letters as first-century epistles. A new method is worked out by studying Romans 1.16-4.25. The result is a presentation of Romans as a highly practical letter, in which we see justification by grace through faith as theology at work. more...

A comprehensive historical overview of the 'Son of Man' debate, tracing its development from the patristic period to the late twentieth century.

- Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 39.00
This study discusses the relationship between the epistles of Paul and classical rhetoric by focussing on recent studies of Galatians. It concludes that Paul did not write according to the conventions of oratory and that therefore the ancient handbooks can contribute little to the interpretation of his epistles. more...
