  • A Kryptic Model of the Incarnationby Andrew Ter Ern Loke

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    Being divine seems to entail being omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, but the New Testament portrays Jesus as having human properties.

  • The Earliest Christian Hymnbookby James H. Charlesworth

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 30.00

    That the earliest followers of Jesus wrote poetry, hymns, and odes is evident already in the New Testament. This volume is a translation of The Odes of Solomon, a collection of early Christian hymns or odes; some are obviously Christian, others perhaps Jewish.

  • Dynamic Onenessby Suzanne Nicholson

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 40.50

    The apostle Paul affirms in several places that there is only one God. Yet in the same letters Paul also gives praise to the Lord Jesus Christ, often using language similar to his descriptions of God. How can this self-avowed Hebrew of Hebrews reconcile these ideas? This book explores the strongest one-God statements in Paul's undisputed letters... more...

  • Sex Working and the Bibleby Avaren Ipsen

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    'Yours Faithfully' presents an anthology of virtual letters from the Bible, in which leading scholars imagine correspondence between biblical characters.

  • The City in Biblical Perspectiveby J.W. Rogerson; John Vincent

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    The city is an ambiguous symbol in the Bible. The founder of the first city is the murderer, Cain. The city of Jerusalem is the place chosen by God, yet is also a place of wrong-doing and injustice. Jesus seems to have largely avoided cities except Jerusalem, where he was crucified. 'The City in Biblical Perspective' examines the archaeological and... more...

  • Evocations of the Calf?by Alec J. Lucas

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Scholars often ask how Paul?s polemic against Gentile idolatry and immorality in Romans 1:18?32 prepares for indicting a Jewish interlocutor in 2:1?11. This study proposes that Paul?s argumentation draws on the portrayal of Jewish identity in Psalm 106 and that in drawing on this portrayal Paul was participating in a larger discussion, one that included... more...
