  • "When Gods Were Men"by Esther J. Hamori

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 126.00

    This study begins with the analysis of a type of divine appearance in the Old Testament, here called ?human theophany?, in which God is described as having a concrete human form. The book includes a delineation of various types of anthropomorphism (such as God appearing in concrete human form, as opposed to only in dreams), analysis of the... more...

  • "Why Ask My Name?"by Adele Reinhartz

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 114.99

    Unnamed characters--such as Lot's wife, Jephthah's daughter, Pharaoh's baker, and the witch of Endor--are ubiquitous in the Hebrew Bible and appear in a wide variety of roles. Adele Reinhartz here seeks to answer two principal questions: first, is there a "poetics of anonymity," and if so, what are its contours? Second, how does anonymity affect the... more...

  • 1 Timothyby Aída Besançon Spencer

    The Lutterworth Press 2014; US$ 23.00

    In a thorough and insightful commentary on Paul’s letter to his co-worker Timothy, which the Apostle wrote before and during Nero’s persecution, Aída Besançon Spencer carefully examines each part of the letter and reveals Paul’s rhetorical and stylistic features, as well as placing the letter in the larger biblical, historical,... more...

  • ABBA Vaterby Georg Schelbert

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2011; US$ 56.77

    Die Botschaft von Gott als Vater ist ein zentrales Element der Verkündigung Jesu. Sie bestimmt Jesu Verständnis von Gottes Herrschaft und Reich, dessen Anbruch er proklamierte. Vor allem seit den Forschungen des bedeutenden Exegeten Joachim Jeremias (1904?1979) gewann die singuläre, in der jüdischen Gebetsliteratur fehlende Anrede und Bezeichnung Gottes... more...

  • The Abduction of Dinahby Daniel Hankore

    James Clarke & Co 2013; US$ 33.00

    The process of understanding a text from the narrator’s point of view is crucial for the tasks of interpreting and translating the Bible. If the translator’s understanding of a narrative from the narrator’s point of view is erroneous, then the whole process of translating the message into another language may also fall into error. This... more...

  • After Exegesisby Patricia K Tull; Jacqueline E. Lapsley

    Baylor University Press 2015; US$ 49.95

  • Against the Godsby John D. Currid

    Crossway 2013; US$ 17.99

    Did the writers of Scripture borrow ideas from their cultural neighbors? What is the relationship between the Old Testament and ancient Near Eastern mythology? Currid examines the evidence, arguing that the Old Testament is highly polemical as he stresses differentiation over continuity. more...

  • Altes Testament und christliche Gemeindeby Hans-Christoph Goßmann

    Traugott Bautz 2012; US$ 16.22

    Das Alte Testament wird in der Kirche oft recht stiefmütterlich behandelt. Dies ist bei Lichte besehen nicht nachzuvollziehen. Denn es wäre keineswegs eine Übertreibung, das Alte Testament als die für den christlichen Glauben grundlegende Textsammlung zu bezeichnen. Die ersten Christinnen und Christen hatten keine andere Bibel, da es zur Zeit der ersten... more...

  • Ancient Israelite and Early Jewish Literatureby T. C. Vriezen; A. S. van der Woude; Brian Doyle

    BRILL 2005; US$ 149.00

    Ancient Israelite and Early Jewish Literature offers more than simply an introduction to the Hebrew Bible. Increased interest in Early Judaism as successor to the religion of Ancient Israel and background to the New Testament demands an introduction that guides the reader through the maze of Jewish literature dating from the Hellenistic and Early Roman... more...
