  • Die Matthäus-Passion von Johann Sebastian Bachby Johann Michael Schmidt

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2014; US$ 29.02

    Seit den Anfängen der Kirche dienten die Passionsgeschichten der vier Evangelien auch dazu, die Entfremdung vom jüdischen Volk, alsbald Feindschaft, Verunglimpfung und Verfolgung "der" Juden zu begründen. Gleichzeitig wecken die Passionen Bachs mit ihrer wunderbaren Musik Eindrücke, die Gedanken an Judenverfolgung unerträglich machen, ja... more...

  • Das vergessene Königreichby Israel Finkelstein; Rita Seuß

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 21.21

    Israel Finkelstein beschreibt in seinem bahnbrechenden Buch die Geschichte des Königreichs Israel konsequent aus archäologischer Sicht. In diesem schon 722 v. Chr. untergegangenen, von der Bibel als sündig verworfenen und von der Forschung vergessenen Reich findet er die wahren Ursprünge von zentralen biblischen Erzählungen. Für die Bibel waren die... more...

  • By Bread Aloneby Sheila E. McGinn; Lai Ling Elizabeth Ngan

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 28.99

    Important ecclesiastical documents have stressed the urgency of world hunger and put in the foreground its natural and historical causes, from famine to global austerity measures and warfare. Here biblical scholars take readings of the Old and New Testaments, exploring the dynamics of hunger and its causation in ancient Israel and the Greco-Roman... more...

  • Ungewöhnliche Gebeteby Bernd Jaspert

    Traugott Bautz 2014; US$ 8.93

    Ungewöhnliche Gebete schmeicheln Gott nicht. Sie nennen die Dinge beim Namen. Das ist manchmal hart und ungewohnt. Aber es ist ehrlich. Diese Gebete sind ehrlich und offen. Das macht sie so einzigartig. Ihr Verfasser war viele Jahre im Pfarrdienst der evangelischen Kirche tätig. Heute lebt er im Ruhestand in der Rhön. Von Bernd Jaspert erschienen... more...

  • The Hidden Lightby Andrew D. Kaplan

    East Rock Books 2014; US$ 9.99

    In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth…and thousands of years later, we still read the same creation story. But how well do we really understand it? Both scholarly and spiritual, The Hidden Light combines the wisdom of ancient sources and renowned commentators with original insights to shed light on the Bible's most mysterious story.... more...

  • The Women's Bible Commentaryby Carol A. Newsom; Sharon H. Ringe; Jacqueline E. Lapsley

    SPCK 2014; US$ 58.33

    The Women?s Bible Commentary gathers the best feminist scholars in the field today to produce a commentary on every book of the Bible, including the apocryphal books, with additional articles on the reception history of biblical women, feminist critical method, and women?s religious life in ancient Israel and the early Church. The commentary explores... more...

  • The Bible at Cultural Crossroadsby Harriet Hill

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Bible translators have focused their efforts on preparing a text that is clear, natural and accurate, with the expectation that audiences will understand the message if it is in their language. Field research among the Adioukrou of Côte d'Ivoire shows that audiences also need to have access to the contextual information the author expected his audience... more...

  • The Courtier and the Governorby Sean Burt

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 89.32

    The Nehemiah Memoir, the narrative of the royal cupbearer sent to rebuild Jerusalem, is central to Ezra-Nehemiah?s account of Persian Judah. Yet its emphasis on one individual?s efforts makes it a text that ill-fits the book?s story of a communal restoration. Sean Burt analyzes the nature of this curious text through the lens of genre criticism and... more...

  • A Christian in Togaby Claudio Moreschini

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 66.99

    Boethius is apparently the first Christian writer who was not engaged in dogmatic and theological problems from an ecclesiastical point of view. Boethius hadn't any ecclesiastical office, but was engaged in politics under King Theoderic in Italy, and from his youth he had devoted himself to Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy. Some of his medieval... more...
