  • Christ Without Adamby Benjamin H. Dunning

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    The apostle Paul deals extensively with gender, embodiment, and desire in his authentic letters, yet many of the contemporary philosophers interested in his work downplay these aspects of his thought.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 41.95

    In this provocative study, Lester Grabbe presents a unique approach to Ezra-Nehemiah with the combination of a literary and historical approach.

Controversially, the challenge... more...

  • Nomadic Textby Brennan W. Breed

    Indiana University Press 2014; US$ 54.99

    Brennan W. Breed claims that biblical interpretation should focus on the shifting capacities of the text, viewing it as a dynamic process rather than a static product.

  • The Bible's Many Voicesby Michael Carasik

    JPS 2014; US$ 31.95

    The most common English translations of the Bible often sound like a single, somewhat archaic voice. In fact, the Bible is made up of many separate books composed by multiple writers in a wide range of styles and perspectives. It is, as Michael Carasik demonstrates, not a remote text reserved for churches and synagogues but rather a human document... more...

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    The New Testament provides abundant evidence that Jesus frequented the temple, as did his followers after his death. But the Gospels also depict Jesus in conflict with temple authorities.

  • Paul and the Vocation of Israelby Lionel J. Windsor

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The Apostle Paul was the greatest early missionary of the Christian gospel. He was also, by his own admission, an Israelite. How can both these realities coexist in one individual? This book argues that Paul viewed his mission to the Gentiles, in and of itself, as the primary expression of his Jewish identity. The concept of Israel?s divine vocation... more...
