  • Grace, Reconciliation, Concordby Cilliers Breytenbach

    BRILL 2010; US$ 179.00

    How did the first Christians interpret the death of Christ? The answer lies within the earliest Christian documents, primarily within the Pauline letters. Before the users of a modern language could hope to come near an adequate description of what was expressed in these Greek texts of the first Christians, they have to deconstruct layers of later... more...

    Ancient Angels brings together inscriptional, literary, and archaeological evidence for angels (angeloi) in Roman-era religions.

  • The Wrong Messiahby Nick Page

    Hodder & Stoughton 2011; US$ 23.48

    He came from the wrong social class, the wrong place and the wrong profession. He ate with the wrong people, championed the wrong causes and attracted the wrong kind of supporters. He even spoke with the wrong accent. In fact everything about Jesus of Nazareth was wrong. How could this odd-job man be God's Messiah?To the authorities he was a dangerous... more...

  • Islamby Karen Armstrong

    Orion 2011; US$ 23.48

    In the public mind, Islam is a religion of extremes: it is the worlds fastest growing faith; more than three-quarters of the worlds refugees are Islamic; it has produced government by authoritarian monarchies in Saudi Arabia and ultra-republicans in Iran. Whether we are reading about civil war in Algeria or Afghanistan, the struggle for the soul of... more...

  • Communities of Devotionby Maria Craciun

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2011; US$ 144.95

    This collection of essays explores the complex relationship between western monasticism and lay society in east central Europe from the late medieval period to the eighteenth century.

  • The American Creedby Forrest Church

    St. Martin's Press 2003; US$ 18.99

    What makes us all Americans--whatever our differences--is adherence to a creed, a creed based upon cornerstone truths the founders believed "self-evident." From the earliest days, the survival of the new republic hinged not merely upon the expression of these grand principles of liberty and equality but upon their spiritual underpinnings. Freedom... more...

  • Paganismo, żen tu cristianismo?by Frank Viola; George Barna

    Vida 2011; US$ 9.99

    SPANISH EDITION. Have you ever wondered why we Christians do what we do for church every Sunday morning? Why do we 'dress up' for church? Why does the pastor preach a sermon each week? Why do we have pews, steeples, choirs, and seminaries? This volume reveals the startling truth: most of what Christians do in present-day churches is not rooted in the... more...

  • The Archaeology of Late Antique 'Paganism'by Luke Lavan; Michael Mulryan

    BRILL 2011; US$ 255.00

    There is no agreement over how to name the 'pagan' cults of late antiquity. Clearly they were more diverse than this Christian label suggests, but also exhibited tendencies towards monotheism and internal changes which makes it difficult to describe them as 'traditional cults'. This volume, which includes two extensive bibliographic essays, considers... more...
