    Have you wondered how the creation story in Genesis fits with the evolutionary theories of popular science?  Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis resolves the conflict between faith and science by answering key questions about the origin of human life, the evidence left by the fossil record, and how the findings of science line up with the Bible.... more...

  • Divination and Human Natureby Peter T. Struck

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 45.00 US$ 36.00

    Divination and Human Nature casts a new perspective on the rich tradition of ancient divination?the reading of divine signs in oracles, omens, and dreams.

  • Epiphanius of Cyprusby Andrew S. Jacobs

    University of California Press 2016; US$ 95.00 US$ 76.00

    Epiphanius, Bishop of Constantia on Cyprus from 367 to 403 C.E., was incredibly influential in the last decades of the fourth century.

  • The Crosses of Pompeiiby Bruce W. Longenecker

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 38.99

    Through a twist of fate, the eruption that destroyed Pompeii in 79 CE also preserved a wealth of evidence about the town, buried for centuries in volcanic ash. Since the town?s excavations in the eighteenth century, archaeologists have disputed the evidence that might attest the presence of Christians in Pompeii before the eruption. Now, Bruce... more...

    In the early sixth-century eastern Roman empire, anti-Chalcedonian leaders Severus of Antioch and Julian of Halicarnassus debated the nature of Jesus's body: Was it corruptible prior to its resurrection from the dead? Viewing the controversy in light of late antiquity?s multiple images of the ?body of Christ,? Yonatan Moss reveals the underlying political,... more...

  • The Lost Book of Mosesby Chanan Tigay

  • Parmenides? Visionby Stuart B. Martin

    UPA 2016; US$ 79.99

    This book intends to establish, against his numerous modern critics, that the ancient philosopher Parmenides was a mystic. Instead of arriving at his conclusions by cold reason, Parmenides found the unity of Being, which he called ?the Truth,? by turning to a life of meditation. more...

  • Classifying Christiansby Todd S. Berzon

    University of California Press 2016; US$ 95.00 US$ 76.00

    Classifying Christians investigates late antique Christian heresiologies as ethnographies that catalogued and detailed the origins, rituals, doctrines, and customs of the heretics in explicitly polemical and theological terms. Oscillating between ancient ethnographic evidence and contemporary ethnographic writing, Todd S. Berzon argues that late... more...
