    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 95.58

  • God has No Favouritesby Basil Scott

    Fortress Press 2017; US$ 18.99

    The New Testament does not conform neatly to any modern attempts to define the Christian approach to other religions, argues Basil Scott. He confronts the questions: What does the New Testament tell us about religions? And what is its approach to those who were Gentiles, and to their beliefs and practices? He focuses his attention on the evidence... more...

  • God's Mediatorsby Andrew Malone

    SPCK 2017; US$ 14.99

    There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament’s appropriation of such imagery to describe Jesus Christ.
