  • The Earliest Christian Hymnbookby James H. Charlesworth

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 30.00

    That the earliest followers of Jesus wrote poetry, hymns, and odes is evident already in the New Testament. This volume is a translation of The Odes of Solomon, a collection of early Christian hymns or odes; some are obviously Christian, others perhaps Jewish. The beauty of these poems is a tribute to the depth of spirituality in early communities... more...

  • Death and Resurrectionby Dennis J. Horton

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 30.00

    Dennis Horton highlights the shape and function of the death-and-resurrection motif by applying William Freedman's criteria of a literary motif to the Acts narrative. By analyzing the statements about death and resurrection together with the examples of this messianic pattern among the experiences of major and minor characters, the motif becomes... more...

  • Dynamic Onenessby Suzanne Nicholson

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 40.50

    The apostle Paul affirms in several places that there is only one God. Yet in the same letters Paul also gives praise to the Lord Jesus Christ, often using language similar to his descriptions of God. How can this self-avowed Hebrew of Hebrews reconcile these ideas? This book explores the strongest one-God statements in Paul's undisputed letters... more...

  • Sawdust on His Shirtby Roger Speare

    John Hunt Publishing 2014; US$ 9.99

    Religion was not Jesus' idea. He preferred to rescue prostitutes and show us how to change the world. more...

  • Evocations of the Calf?by Alec J. Lucas

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Scholars often ask how Paul?s polemic against Gentile idolatry and immorality in Romans 1:18?32 prepares for indicting a Jewish interlocutor in 2:1?11. This study proposes that Paul?s argumentation draws on the portrayal of Jewish identity in Psalm 106 and that in drawing on this portrayal Paul was participating in a larger discussion, one that included... more...

  • The Birth of Satanby T. J. Wray; Gregory Mobley

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 35.99

    Of all the demons, monsters, fiends, and ogres to preoccupy the western imagination in literature, art, and film, no figure has been more feared?or misunderstood--than Satan. But how accurate are the popular images of Satan? How--and why--did this rather minor biblical character morph into the very embodiment of evil? T.J. Wray and Gregory Mobley... more...

  • Symposiaby Roland Boer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    'Symposia' illuminates the central issues and concerns of biblical studies by presenting a series of stories. The model for the stories is the ancient Greek idea of the symposium, a 'sitting down together for the purpose of drinking'. In Plato's writings, the symposium becomes a genre of writing with Socrates at its centre, a character who perpetually... more...

  • The Bible Says So!by Edwin D. Freed; Jane F. Roberts

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Is it possible to apply teachings from the Bible to our world today, given the vast differences between biblical times and ours? Biblical passages are often taken out of context and interpreted to support a particular viewpoint or justify a particular action. 'The Bible Says So!' examines the origins of well-known biblical stories - from Adam and... more...

  • Food for the Soulby Alex LaPerchia

    University Press of America 2014; US$ 29.99

    Food for the Soul tells the stories of influential Catholic figures through short biographical plays and explores important issues facing the Church and our society today. Author Alex LaPerchia also explores his personal history as a Catholic and shares how God reveals Himself though all faiths. more...

  • Healing in the Gospel of Matthewby Walter T. Wilson

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    Walter Wilson adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the healing narratives in the Gospel of Matthew, combining the familiar methods of form, redaction, and narrative criticisms with insights culled from medical anthropology, feminist theory, disability studies, and ancient archaeology to understand the New Testament?s longest and most systematic... more...
