    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 19.99

    The Puritans called Baptists "the troublers of churches in all places" and hounded them out of Massachusetts Bay Colony.

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2015; US$ 41.64

    Seit den 1960er Jahren beginnt ein Transformationsprozess des Selbstverständnisses der beiden großen christlichen Konfessionen in Deutschland, der wesentlich durch die Dominanz "sozialer" Themen geprägt ist: Die praktizierte Nächstenliebe wird geradezu als Ausweis des Christlichen interpretiert. Dementsprechend bedeutete das Entstehen der sog. more...

  • Beliefs that Changed the Worldby John Bowker

  • Isis on the Nile. Egyptian Gods in Hellenistic and Roman Egyptby Laurent Bricault; Miguel John Versluys

    BRILL 2010; US$ 168.00

    The diffusion of the cults of Isis is recently again intensively studied.

This volume tries to overcome that unhealthy... more...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2015; US$ 33.99

    MacDonald shows how Gospel stories parallel many Greek and Roman epics?from walking on water to visiting the land of the dead?to compel first-century readers into life-changing decisions to follow Jesus. MacDonald doesn?t call into question the existence of Jesus but rather asks readers to examine the Gospels through a new, mythological lens. more...
