    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.

  • The Bible in Ethiopiaby Curt Niccum

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 48.00

    The Ethiopic version provides a window into the state of the Greek Bible as it circulated in East Africa at the end of the fourth century. It is, therefore, an extremely important witness to the Bible's early transmission history, yet its testimony has typically been ignored or misunderstood by textual critics. This study examines the history of... more...

The author argues for a cultural-linguistic experience of shì as the locus at which the intersubjective... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 92.15

    The early Christian texts discussed in this book are often treated as "gnostic" ones. The studies by Ismo Dunderberg collected here, however, approach them as witnesses to the views of educated second-century Christians engaged in dialogue with philosophical traditions. Following the idea that ancient philosophical schools first and foremost... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 73.53

  • Ancient Apologetic Exegesisby Stuart E. Parsons

    James Clarke & Co 2015; US$ 32.00

    Taking a radical new approach to second-century theology, 'Ancient Apologetic Exegesis' examines the work of Saint Theophilus of Antioch, with a full understanding of the man and his times. The second century is often dismissed by theologians, despite a near-living memory of Jesus and his apostles from only a generation or two prior, but Stuart... more...

  • Metaphor and Ideologyby Mary Therese Descamp

    BRILL 2007; US$ 196.00

    Contemporary scholars have sharply disagreed over the importance of the loquacious women of "Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum," Using the methods of contemporary Cognitive Linguistics, "Ideology and Metaphor" develops a systematic, replicable reading of the text and its characters, showing how Pseudo-Philo uses these women's stories... more...

  • ?Verhärtet eure Herzen nicht?by Gabriella Gelardini

    BRILL 2006; US$ 226.00

    The book interprets Hebrews against the background of ancient synagogue preaching and liturgy. It argues that the text is an exhortative homily for Tisha be-Av, founded upon readings from Exod 31:18?32:35 and Jer 31:31?34. This hermeneutical key opens new perspectives on Hebrews. ***** Die Untersuchung deutet den Hebräer(brief) auf dem Hintergrund... more...
