  • The Morality of Paul's Convertsby Edwin D. Freed

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    A careful analysis of Paul's letters shows that in every church there were two main groups of converts: those who were baptized and those being instructed for baptism. Such analysis also makes it possible to determine which parts of each letter were directed towards which group. Baptism was the rite by which converts were forgiven their past sins and... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    The Mythic Mind follows the tradition of works which insist on the necessity for a comparative dimension in the study of ancient Israel.

  • Cynicsby William Desmond

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Once regarded as a minor Socratic school, Cynicism is now admired as one of the more creative and influential philosophical movements in antiquity.

In every age... more...

    "A Plato Primer" introduces beginning students and the general reader to the main theses, concepts and arguments in Plato's philosophy.

  • Redrawing the Boundariesby J. V. M. Sturdy; Jonathan Knight

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    Was the New Testament written in the early first century CE or at a much later date?

Sturdy argued that the Pauline letters are in places interpolated, Colossians, Ephesians and the Pastorals are pseudonymous, and... more...

  • Mark and its Subalternsby David Joy

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    This book offers a fresh appraisal of the identity and involvement of the subalterns in Mark, arguing that the presence of the subalterns in Mark is a possible hermeneutical tool for re-reading the Bible in a postcolonial context like India. Part I paves the way for a creative discussion on Mark and its interpreters in the rest of the study by looking... more...
