  • The Call of Moses and the Exodus Storyby Jaeyoung Jeon

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 65.85

    Jaeyoung Jeon examines and assesses recently suggested models for the formation of the Pentateuch through a redactional-critical analysis of the Call of Moses (Exod. 3-4) and the Exodus story (Exod. 5-13). He observes that Exod. 3-4 was formed through a series of stages of Deuteronomistic composition and redaction, to which some post-Priestly additions... more...

  • Gender and Purity in the Protevangelium of Jamesby Lily C. Vuong

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 75.39

    The Protevangelium of James is arguably the earliest surviving source that exhibits profound interest in Mary, the mother of Jesus. Although frequently cited for later Christian reflections about Mary, gender, and virginity and its influence on popular Christian art, music, and literature, it is not well known outside academic circles and is rarely... more...

  • Torah and the Book of Numbersby Christian Frevel; Thomas Pola; Aaron Schart

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 84.93

    The Documentary Hypothesis, which in the 20th century was the standard theory to explain the development of the Pentateuch, has been challenged from different angles. One important text corpus where new proposals have been brought into the debate is the Book of Numbers. The articles in this volume address the formation of the Book of Numbers from the... more...

  • Dangerous Sisters of the Hebrew Bibleby Amy Kalmanofsky

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    Fathers, sons, and mothers take center stage in the Bible?s grand narratives, Amy Kalmanofsky observes. Sisters and sisterhood receive less attention in scholarship but, she argues, play an important role in narratives, revealing anxieties related to desire, agency, and solidarity among women playing out (and playing against) their roles in a patrilineal... more...

  • Christ Absent and Presentby Peter Orr

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 75.39

    In his letters, the Apostle Paul can express both the confidence that Christ dwells in the believer (Rom. 8:10) and the longing for Christ to return so that believers can finally be united with him (1 Thess. 4:17). Peter Orr develops the case that this under-explored relationship between the presence and absence of Christ sheds important light on Paul's... more...

  • Reading Revelationby W. Gordon Campbell

    James Clarke & Co 2012; US$ 40.50

    In general, Revelation studies continue to favour going outside or behind the text (in search of its context of origin, via the historical-critical paradigm) or, more recently, in front of the text (to investigate the book's reception history, past and present). To date, relatively little synchronic exegetical work inside the text has been undertaken,... more...

  • Signs of Salvationby Anthony M. Moore

    James Clarke & Co 2013; US$ 32.26

    Was Mary Magdalene really mistaken when she took the Risen Lord to be a ‘gardener’ working near the tomb where Christ was laid after the crucifixion? In this compelling volume, Anthony M. Moore persuasively argues that Jesus must be recognised, at a theological level, as the Gardener: the Creator-God Himself.The author skilfully examines... more...

  • The Babylon Complexby Erin Runions

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 17.99

    Babylon is a surprisingly multivalent symbol in U.S. culture and politics. Political citations of Babylon range widely, from torture at Abu Ghraib to depictions of Hollywood glamour and decadence. In political discourse, Babylon appears in conservative ruminations on democratic law, liberal appeals to unity, Tea Party warnings about equality, and religious... more...

  • Biblical Knowingby Dru Johnson

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 38.00

    The Christian Scriptures could be theologically described as beginning and ending with an epistemological outlook. The first episode of humanity’s activity centers on the knowledge of good and evil. The final stage of humanity is pictured by Jeremiah as a universally prophetic and knowing society: 'And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor... more...

  • Beyond Old and New Perspectives on Paulby Chris Tilling

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 43.00

    In his work 'Deliverance of God' Douglas Campbell presents what Chris Tilling considers a "complete rereading of Paul’s letters that genuinely offers a way beyond problems associated with old and new perspectives. And his resultant picture of Paul’s theology generally, and the Apostle’s soteriology particularly, is beautiful,... more...
