    BRILL 2010; US$ 122.00

    This book presents the first comprehensive interpretation of the Paraphrase of Shem, Codex VII,1 in the Coptic Nag Hammadi Library.

  • Flora Tells a Storyby Michael Kaler

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2008; US$ 48.95

    In early Christianity, many people were inspired to write gospels, treatises, letters, and stories celebrating the new faith, but not all of these writings are found in the New Testament. One such story from an unknown author is the Coptic, gnostic Apocalypse of Paul , a tale of the apostle Paul's ascent to the heavens that was lost for millennia... more...

  • The Relentless Tenderness of Jesusby Brennan Manning; Larry Crabb

    Baker Publishing Group 2004; US$ 14.99

  • The Gnosticsby Sean Martin

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 11.99

    Gnosticism is the name given to various religious schools that proliferated in the first centuries after Christ, nearly becoming the dominant form of Christianity, but was eventually branded as heretical by the emerging Christian church.

  • God So Loved, He Gaveby Kelly M. Kapic; Justin L. Borger

    Zondervan 2010; US$ 15.99

    God So Loved, He Gave places the practice of giving within the larger story of God?s generosity. Here we discover how our participation in the overflow of divine giving is vitally connected to the Trinitarian nature of God, the unfolding drama of Scripture and ultimately the Gospel itself. more...

  • The Secret Teachings of Jesusby Marvin Meyer

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 11.95

    In December 1945, two Egyptian fellahin, digging for natural fertilizer in the Nile River valley unearthed a sealed storage jar. The jar proved to hold treasure of an unexpected sort: a collection of some fifty-two ancient manuscripts, most of which reflect the teachings of a mystical religious movement we call Gnosticism (from the Greek word gnosis,... more...

  • The Arch-Heretic Marcionby Sebastian Moll

    Mohr Siebeck 2010; US$ 65.12

    Hauptbeschreibung Marcion is unanimously acknowledged to be one of the most important and most intriguing figures of the Early Church. In spite of this importance, there is no comprehensive up-to-date study on his life and thought. Thus, the desire to fill this gap within the academic world - which is inconvenient for both students and professors... more...

  • Ketzerei und Inquisition im Mittelalterby Jörg Oberste; Martin Kintzinger

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 16.41

    Das Christentum mit seinem absoluten Wahrheitsanspruch, der sich auf das geoffenbarte Wort bezog, musste die Einheit von Glaube und Kirche fordern. Doch unterschiedliche Auslegungen sorgten von Anfang an für Spannungen in der Kirche und für das Entstehen von häretischen, von ?ketzerischen? Ansichten und Bewegungen. Jörg Oberste geht allen Ausformungen... more...
