  • Threshing Floors?Ancient Israelby Jaime L. Waters

    Fortress Press 2015; US$ 43.99

    Vital to an agrarian community?s survival, threshing floors are also depicted in the Hebrew Bible as sites for mourning rites, divination rituals, cultic processions, and sacrifices. Jaime L. Waters examines these sacred functions and the various personnel active in the use and operation of the sites and shows that they were sacred spaces connected... more...

  • From Text to Performanceby Kelly R. Iverson

    The Lutterworth Press 2015; US$ 21.00

    For the last two centuries biblical interpretation has been guided by perspectives that have largely ignored the oral context in which the gospels took shape. Only recently have scholars begun to explore how ancient media inform the interpretive process and an understanding of the Bible. This collection of essays, by authors who recognize that the... more...

  • The Original Ending of Markby Nicholas P. Lunn

    James Clarke & Co 2015; US$ 34.50

    Although traditionally accepted by the church through the centuries, the longer ending of Mark's Gospel (16:9-20) has been relegated by modern scholarship to the status of a later appendage. The arguments for such a view are chiefly based upon the witness of the two earliest complete manuscripts of Mark, and upon matters of language and style.... more...

  • The Talmud of Jerusalemby Dagobert D. Runes

    Philosophical Library 2015; US$ 9.99

    One of the world?s supreme works of religious literature, the Talmud has been unjustly neglected by a civilization that is rightly proud of its Judaeo-Christian heritage. This sacred book of Israel came to birth during the centuries following the fall of Jerusalem to the Roman Empire, when the people of Palestine were scattered to the four corners... more...

  • The Gothic Version of the Gospels and Pauline Epistlesby Carla Falluomini

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 112.00

    The Gothic version of the New Testament is the oldest extant writing in a Germanic language and one of the earliest translations from the Greek. This volume offers a re-examination of fundamental questions concerning the historical and cultural context in which the version was prepared, the codicology of the manuscripts, and the value... more...

  • James and Paulby V. George Shillington

    Fortress Press 2015; US$ 43.99

    Recent interest in the person and work of James of Jerusalem and in the community he led has sometimes put the apostle Paul in a negative light—a reversal of the more usual pattern in Protestantism. Rather than exaggerating the opposition between these two figures, V. George Shillington seeks to understand them both without prejudice. Examining... more...

  • The Nine Commandmentsby David Noel Freedman

    The Crown Publishing Group 2002; US$ 16.95

    In a book certain to be as controversial as Harold Bloom's The Book of J and Elaine Pagels's The Gnostic Gospels, David Noel Freedman delves into the Old Testament and reveals a pattern of defiance of the Covenant with God that inexorably led to the downfall of the nation of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the banishment of survivors from... more...

  • The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Gnostic Gospelsby J. Matkin

    DK Publishing 2005; US$ 18.95

    The birth of the Christian Church, and what it means for modern religion and philosophy. This engaging guide presents an accessible overview of the birth of the Christian church, using the historical works found at the famous Nag Hammadi site in Egypt.
