L etter from the E ditors

Welcome to Bloomsbury Theology and Biblical Studies, incorporating T&T Clark Welcome to the new Theology and Biblical Studies catalogue. As you will have noticed, for the first time this catalogue is coming out under the Bloomsbury name instead of as Continuum. We wanted to give you some background to this rebranding. In 2008, Bloomsbury decided to invest in building a new academic division. Growth since that decision was taken has been very rapid: we now publish around 1,100 titles each year, with a particularly big presence in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and our backlist comprises some 20,000 titles. The purchase of Continuum in 2011 was a key part of this growth. We believe we are stronger as a group, which is why we have taken the strategic decision to adopt the Bloomsbury name for all academic titles that we publish. With effect from 1st September 2012, all new Continuum titles will be published under the Bloomsbury brand. There are a few exceptions to this, one of which is Theology and Biblical Studies, which will be dual-branded as T&T Clark, preserving our long history of excellence in these fields, which dates back to 1821. The values of Continuum and T&T Clark which you have appreciated over the years are already integral to the larger entity that is Bloomsbury. Much has changed over the past 12 months, but we remain as committed to our authors and to publishing the same high quality textbooks, course books, research monographs, reference works, professional and general interest books, journals and online resources.

Publishing in Print and Digital Bloomsbury leads the way in digital publishing, for example with the launch of the Churchill Archive in autumn 2012 (www.churchillarchive.com). Providing an essential research and teaching tool, it has made more than 800,000 pages of key historical documents from the twentieth century available online for the first time. Furthermore, Drama Online (www.dramaonlinelibrary.com) will provide a collection of the most studied, performed and critically acclaimed plays from the last two and a half thousand years.

Highlights On this year’s Biblical Studies list you will find a major new book from Maurice Casey on the existence of Jesus, as well as a new edition of Steve Moyise’s best-selling Introduction to Biblical Studies (p.3). We are also excited to announce Dale Allison’s ICC on James (p.17) and a major new textbook on ancient Canaan and Israel from Kurt Noll (p.6). The theology list provides the collected works of Schillebeeckx in newly edited and translated form (p.34), as well as many new exciting volumes, such as God Without Measure by John Webster (p.39) and The Feminine Genius of Catholic Theology by Matthew Levering (p.37). We are also expecting the T&T Clark Companion to Liturgy edited by Alcuin Reid (p.30). You may also be interested in our exciting journal Material Religion (p.51) and in related titles in our Religious Studies catalogue.

New Website Finally we are delighted to announce the launch of a new global Bloomsbury website: www.bloomsbury.com. This site brings together everything under the Bloomsbury Group, including Continuum, T&T Clark, Berg, Methuen Drama, Arden Shakespeare, Bristol Classical Press, and A&C Black titles. The site features enhanced academic functionality such as online previews, digital inspection copies, textbook companion sites and online resources. Go to www.bloomsbury.com/academic for more information. We hope you enjoy reading our latest catalogue.

Jesus: Evidence and Argument or Mythicist Myths

The Bible and Sociological Theory

Maurice Casey

David Chalcraft

In recent years there has been a massive upsurge in public discussion of the view that Jesus did not exist. Many unprofessional scholars and bloggers (“mythicists”), are gaining a large following for a view many think to be unsupportable. Maurice Casey, one of the most important Historical Jesus scholars of his generation takes the “mythicists” to task in this landmark publication. Casey argues neither from a religious perspective, nor from that of a committed atheist. Rather he seeks to provide a clear view of what can be said about Jesus, and of what can’t. Maurice Casey is Professor of New Testament Languages and Literature at the University of Nottingham, UK.

The Use and Abuse of the Bible

• Comprehensive in scope: covering both the Old and New Testament as well as the Qumran scrolls • Organized chronologically by thinker, the book is student friendly and easy to use • Provides accessible summaries of the key works, ideas, concepts, methods and theories of over 20 selected social theorists and worked examples of how their ideas can illuminate biblical studies • Chalcraft is ideally suited to write this textbook: he is a professor of biblical studies but also has a strong sociology background David Chalcraft is Head of Department and Chair in Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield, UK.

bestseller

A Brief History of Biblical Interpretation Henry Wansbrough Written in an engaging and entertaining manner, this book from leading Catholic biblical scholar Henry Wansbrough charts the use and abuse of scripture throughout the ages. It ranges from the evangelists’ engagement with the Hebrew Scriptures to the use of the Bible in present day politics ­– perhaps most pertinently in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Henry Wansbrough OSB is a Benedictine Monk of Ampleforth Abbey and Alexander Jones Professor of Biblical Studies at Liverpool Hope University, UK.

Introduction to Biblical Studies

3rd

edition

textbook

Steve Moyise This is an ideal introduction to modern biblical studies. Readers are introduced to questions of inspiration, canon and authority. This is followed by chapters on historical approaches to the Bible, such as source, form and redaction criticism. Comparisons with other literature, such as ancient flood stories or Egyptian psalms help to set the context for this. Moyise considers a number of approaches to the Bible. He begins with literary criticism, followed by liberation, feminist and finally a variety of theological approaches used by those who consider the Bible to be sacred scripture. For the third edition Moyise has added two sections, one giving a basic outline of the biblical story together with a timeline and key dates, and another on dating the New Testament. Steve Moyise is Professor of New Testament at the University of Chichester, UK.

Introducing Biblical Theology

textbook

Sigurd Grindheim • Tailored to students at the start of theology/ biblical studies courses • Teaches students how to read the Bible in its canonical context • Features revision questions, tables, text boxes and reading lists How do the different books of the Christian Bible contribute to telling the story of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ?

Grindheim draws on insights from scholarship and tradition to answer the major questions and presents them in a highly accessible form, using examples, revision questions and charts. He teaches students how to make sense of the Christian Bible as a unity, in the context of the story of Jesus. Sigurd Grindheim teaches New Testament at Fjellhaug International University College, Norway.

The Bible Culture, Community, Society Edited by Angus Paddison and Neil Messer The Bible: Culture, Community, Society covers three core themes. First, it provides a reading of the Bible in the context of modernity – the challenges the intellectual history of modernity has posed to the Bible’s authority and how historical work can co-exist with a commitment to the Bible as the Word of God. Secondly, it shows the Bible as a text that forms the church community – how the Bible as an authoritative text shapes a culture. Thirdly, it interprets reading the Bible as a public text and the challenges posed by holding to the Bible as the Word of God in a religiously diverse context. The highly distinguished contributors include Ben Quash, David Ferguson, Angus Paddison and Zoë Bennett. Angus Paddison is Theology Lecturer at the University of Winchester, UK, Neil Messer is Reader in Theology and Head of the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Winchester, UK.

Oral Tradition and the New Testament: A Guide for the Perplexed Rafael Rodríguez The last three decades have seen an explosion of biblical scholarship on the presence and consequences of the oral expression of tradition among Jesus’ followers. Rodríguez adopts a fourfold structure to cover the topic, beginning with basic essentials for further discussion of oral-tradition research and definitions of key terms (the “what”). He then moves on to discuss the key players in this area (the “who”) before examining the methods involved in oral-tradition research among New Testament scholars (the “how”). Finally Rodríguez provides examples of the ways in which oral-tradition research can bring texts into clearer focus (the “why”). The result is a comprehensive introduction to this key area in New Testament studies. Rafael Rodríguez is Associate Professor of New Testament, Johnson Bible College, Knoxville, USA.

Helen Bond Bond begins by setting out the relevant sources (Graeco-Roman, Jewish and Christian), noting the problems connected with them, paying particular attention to the nature of the gospels, and the Synoptic versus the Johannine traditions he discusses scholarship on Jesus from the nineteenth century to the explosion of works in the present day, introducing and explaining the three different “quests” for the historical Jesus and themes in historical Jesus research.

Biblical Criticism: A Guide for the Perplexed Eryl W. Davies This Guide shows students how to apply literary theory in biblical studies. Whereas the historicalcritical approach is concerned with the moment of a text’s production, the literary approach is concerned with the moment of the text’s reception. Eryl W. Davies shows how and why approaches such as “reader-response criticism”, “feminist criticism”, “ideological criticism”, “canonical criticism” and “post-colonial criticism” are becoming increasingly popular.

Far From Minimal

Iconographic Interpretation and the Hebrew Bible Edited by Izaak J. de Hulster and Joel M. LeMon

Celebrating the Work and Influence of Philip R. Davies Edited by Duncan Burns and John W. Rogerson

Since the 1970s, biblical scholars have been turning increasingly to iconography as a source for understanding the religion, history and literature of the ancient Near East. The essays in this volume tackle two thorny issues: 1) how images reflect the cultures that produce them and 2) the nature of the relationship between images and texts, both within discrete cultures and among different cultures. Until now, there have been relatively few methodologically self-conscious treatments of ancient iconography and its relationship to the biblical text. This book fills this gap.

Marking the 60th birthday of Professor Philip R. Davies, Dr Duncan Burns and John W. Rogerson, his former student and colleague, respectively, aim to do him justice. They have comprised articles from their peers to reflect on the impact Professor Davies has made in three particular areas of study: Hebrew Bible, Qumran, and Palestinian Archaeology; New Testament and Early Judaism; and Biblical Interpretation.

The Unchained Bible Cultural Appropriations of Biblical Texts Hugh S. Pyper This volume explores a number of readings of the Bible in popular culture. The argument in all of them is that the Bible continues to have an effect on contemporary culture in ways that may surprise and sometimes dismay both religious and secular groups. That the Bible was at one time chained in churches is true. Yet, once released from these chains, the Bible proves to be a text that gets everywhere and which undergoes surprising and sometimes contradictory metamorphoses. Hugh S.

Constructions of Space III

Was Noah Good?

Biblical Spatiality and the Sacred Edited by Jorunn Økland, J. Cornelis de Vos and Karen J. Wenell

Finding Favour in the Flood Narrative Carol M. Kaminski

Constructions of Space III engages space both as focus in the texts under discussion, but also as analytical perspective. It explores how the Bible contains numerous notions of sacred/holy space. This spatial-critical perspective can help us understand the relationship between notions of holiness and of space was a more dynamic one – as notions of space changed, notions of holiness changed, and vice versa.

This book offers an exegetical analysis of the flood narrative. Kaminski argues against the commonly held view that Noah finds favour because he is righteous, and seeks to demonstrate that divine favour is unmerited in accordance with the theme of grace in the primeval history. Thus what sets the flood story in motion is not Noah’s righteousness, but the divine favour he finds. Carol M.

The Body as Property Physical Disfigurement in Biblical Law Sandra Jacobs The Body As Property indicates that physical disfigurement functioned in biblical law to verify legal property acquisition, when changes in the status of dependants were formalized. This is primarily substantiated in the accounts of prescriptive disfigurements: namely circumcision and the piercing of a slave’s ear, both of which were required only when a son, or slave, was acquired permanently.

Ezra’s Social Drama Identity Formation, Marriage and Social Conflict in Ezra 9 and 10 Donald P. Moffat Moffat provides insight into the mixed marriage narrative by exposing the social and cultural factors on which it is based. He identifies historical traces in the narrative that can contribute to a historical reconstruction of the post-exilic era. The sociocultural analysis highlights previously unobserved aspects of the narrative reflecting a context in which identity formation issues were prominent in Persian Yehud. Donald P.

Focusing Biblical Studies: The Crucial Nature of the Persian and Hellenistic Periods

Edited by Christl M. Maier and Carolyn J. Sharp

Essays in Honor of Douglas A. Knight Edited by Jon L. Berquist and Alice Hunt

This volume advances the scholarly discussion of Jeremiah via rigorous feminist and postcolonialist theorizing of texts and interpretive issues in that prophetic book.

This volume makes a positive intervention into maximalist/minimalist debates about Israelite historiography by pointing to the events that happened during the Persian and Hellenistic periods. The entire volume is set within the context of Doug Knight’s contributions, which have encouraged a rigorous social-scientific and tradition-historical approach to the Hebrew Bible and ancient Israel in general. Knight’s methods, teachings, writings, and scholarly interventions have pointed the contributors of this volume to fresh considerations of the Persian and Hellenistic periods.

Royal Motifs in the Pentateuchal Portrayal of Moses Danny Mathews This book addresses the portrayal of Moses through the use of royal motifs.

Yehud and the Material Formation of Monotheistic Identity Jeremiah W. Cataldo

An Interpretation of David and Jonathan’s Friendship Jonathan Y. Rowe

Breaking Monotheism makes the case that the failed vision of a theocratic utopia in the biblical texts has contributed (in a structural sense) to the exclusionary focus of monotheistic religion. Using the Persian province Yehud as its primary case study, this work embodies a special focus on the interaction between religion and the social-political body. Jeremiah W.

Rowe examines David and Jonathan’s friendship in the context of what ancient readers would have understood as the “natural” loyalty to their families. Rowe focuses on the conflicting moral goods between which the men choose, seeking to understand the dynamics of the narrative consonant with ancient society. Starting from the concept of “hegemonic masculinity”, Rowe examines how men in general are presented positively, and then shows how Jonathan, David and Saul measure up to these standards. Jonathan Y.

Lexical Dependence and Intertextual Allusion in the Septuagint of the Twelve Prophets Studies in Hosea, Amos and Micah Myrto Theocharous This book explores various aspects of intertextuality in the LXX Twelve Prophets, with a special emphasis on Hosea, Amos and Micah. The volume goes on to examine specific cases from the books of Hosea, Amos and Micah, finally discussing cases where the translator understands the text to be alluding to specific biblical stories, events and characters of particular interest in Hellenistic Judaism. Myrto Theocharous is Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at the Greek Bible College in Athens, Greece.

Reconsidering the Date and Provenance of the Book of Hosea: The Case for Persian-Period Yehud James M. Bos This study argues that the book of Hosea ought to be understood and read as a text that was composed in Persian-period Yehud rather than in eighthcentury Israel. The author challenges the traditional scholarship and emphasizes that there is the evidence to suggest that the book should be viewed as a Judahite text – a book that was composed in the late sixth or early fifth century B.C.E. James M. Bos is currently a Visiting Instructor of Religion at the University of Mississippi, USA.

The Book of Joel A Prophet between Calamity and Hope Elie Assis Contrary to the prevailing opinion that Joel is postexilic, Elie Assis locates the book within the exilic period, recognising the lack of any rebuke consistent with a people experiencing deep despair. A literary and rhetorical analysis demonstrates how the prophet sought to influence his audience. One central feature of the book is its focus on a discussion of the position and purpose of the locust plague, employing recent literary approaches. Elie Assis is Head of the Department of Bible Studies at Bar Ilan University, Israel.

Torah in Psalms and Prophets Edited by Jurie Le Roux, Eckart Otto and Dirk J. Human This book stresses the relationship between the Hexateuch and Pentateuch redaction, on the one hand, and the prophetic literature on the other. In the long run the editors of the Pentateuch triumphed and the Torah grew in importance. In the course of time the prophets opposed this concept of the Torah and someone like Jeremiah expected something totally new: a new people and a new covenant.

Land or Earth?

The Testament of Job

A Terminological Study of Hebrew “eres” and Aramaic “ara” in the Graeco-Roman Period Shizuka Uemura

Text, Narrative and Reception History Maria Haralambakis

Uemura examines whether the term “eres” signifies the “earth” or the “Land” and traces the historical development of its uses in relation to these two meanings. Uemura’s examination begins with an analysis of the terms under discussion in order to discern the semantic field of each term, as well as to determine its stylistic idiomatic uses. He discusses the uses of these two terms in ancient non-Jewish circumstances using materials taken from Phoenician, New Punic, Moabite and Aramaic inscriptions, as well as from an Aramaic papyri from Egypt and Nabataean papyri from Nahal Hever. This study reveals the cultural background of the uses of these terms, shedding light on the biblical worldview in the Graeco-Roman period. Shizuka Uemura is a lecturer at the University of Tokyo, Japan. UK July 2012 • US October 2012 288 Pages HB 9780567651426 • £65.00 / $120.00 T & T Clark Series: The Library of Second Temple Studies

Gleanings from the Caves Dead Sea Scrolls and Artifacts from the Schøyen Collection Edited by Torleif Elgvin This special edition large format volume presents ten biblical and five non-biblical fragments from the Judean Desert, more than half of them for the first time. The exciting publication of seven new fragments provides a fully up-do-date picture for scholars and presents examples of substantial textual variants and interesting linguistic forms. The book includes an essay by Martin Schøyen describing how he tracked down and acquired Judean Desert fragments and artifacts, and another by Hanan Eshel on the present state of affairs with regard to Judean Desert fragments in private hands. The manifold material included in this volume gives the reader a comprehensive picture of texts and artefacts from Qumran seen together.

Maria Haralambakis provides a wide-ranging study of the Testament of Job. Haralambakis begins with textual issues, considering the recent publication of a fourth­-century Coptic codex of the text, as well as the more well-know Byzantine Greek manuscripts. However, she also considers a much larger number of Slavonic manuscripts than many scholars. Haralambakis examines the structure of the Testament as a remarkable literary work, employing narrative theory to demonstrate how the composition works as a well crafted appealing story. Gleaning insights from the text’s widespread presence in Byzantine and Slavonic Christian churches, Haralambakis examines its reception history, asserting that in these contexts the story came to be viewed as something akin to the life of a saint. Maria Haralambakis is Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, UK.

Parables of Enoch: A Paradigm Shift Edited by James H. Charlesworth and Darrell L. Bock This volume announces a paradigm shift in research focused on the Parables of Enoch. The virtual consensus assumed by some New Testament Scholars that this document is a second or third-century Christian composition is being challenged by specialists in Early Judaism and Early Christianity, who now judge the Parables of Enoch to be Jewish. They concur that the work was most likely composed around the time of Jesus from Nazareth and that the author was probably an erudite Jew living in Galilee. Through an extremely impressive list of contributors, including Geza Vermes, Richard Bauckham, James Dunn, Larry Schiffman, James VanderKam, Francis Moloney and Loren Stuckenbruck, this book reflects and strengthens the paradigm shift that has already taken place in many research groups. A document once placarded as influenced by the Gospels is now being recognized as preserving traditions that inspired the Evangelists and conceivably Jesus. James H. Charlesworth is George L. Collord Professor of New Testament Language and Literature at Princeton Theological Seminary, USA, and director of the seminary’s Dead Sea Scrolls Project. Darrell L. Bock is Research Professor of New Testament Studies and Professor of Spiritual Development and Culture at Dallas Theological Seminary, USA.

Why Did Paul Go West? Jewish Historical Narrative and Thought Doron Mendels In his new book Doron Mendels addresses authority, transmission, and strategies of narration in ancient texts. Mendels provides extensive treatment of issues such as linearity, emporality and simultanenity of texts, whilst working to examine four core themes. First, the narrator and his strategies in the historiography of the Hellenistic period. Secondly, Jewish Historical thought in the Hellenistic period and beyond. Thirdly, issues of Hellenization in Palestine – power, honour, gifting, etiquette and sovereignty and their presentation in the main narrative of the Hasmonean period. Finally Mendels gives attention to the “split” in the Jewish diaspora between east and west, as exemplified from a Christian point of view, it is this that unites these themes into a sustained examination of Jewish historical narrative and thought. Doron Mendels is Max and Sophie Mydans Professor in the Humanities at the Department of History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.

Raised from the Dead According to Scripture The Role of the Old Testament in the Early Christian Interpretations of Jesus’ Resurrection Lidija Novakovic The New Testament writings allow only limited access to the interpretative traditions that lie beneath the claim that Jesus’ resurrection took place according to Scripture. This book investigates the underlying principles of scriptural arguments in relation to Jesus’ resurrection and the unstated interpretative moves that govern the selection and combination of texts relating to it. Novakovic’s working hypothesis is that the Davidic tradition supplied the primary scriptural categories for the claim that Jesus was raised from the dead according to Scripture. This tradition was appropriated through two major thematic trajectories: resurrection as the fulfilment of Davidic promises and resurrection as the messianic enthronement. It is also possible to identify several related thematic trajectories, such as the concept of the resurrection as the beginning of the new creation, resurrection as the prophetic authentication, and resurrection as the messianic rebuilding of the temple.

Sacred Texts and Paradigmatic Revolutions The Hermeneutical Worlds of the Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts and the Letter to the Romans J. David Stark This volume applies a rhetorical-discourse method to the Yahadic manuscripts and Romans to show how community leaders uniquely determined specific hermeneutical rules, axioms, and paradigms for their communities. Stark examines the Yahadic texts using Thomas Kuhn’s arguments about scientific paradigms and their shifts as a framework for considering the patterns through which Paul and the Yahad interpret their scriptures. Stark outlines the three ways in which “the Teacher” determined the perspective from which the Yahad approached its scriptures. Following this, he analyses the Romans and the three thematic ways that Jesus determined the perspective from which Paul approached his scriptures. Despite strong similarities between them, the paradigms under which the Yahad and Paul operated moved them to fundamentally different understandings of the kinds of faithfulness they should exhibit towards those whom they received as Yahweh’s appointed agents. The Yahad understood faithfulness to the Teacher within the context of Torah, but Paul understood the Torah within the context of Abraham-style faithfulness to Jesus. J. David Stark is an adjunct online professor of Hermeneutics, New Testament, and Religion at several different institutions.

Ancient Jewish and Christian Texts as Crisis Management Literature Thematic Studies from the Centre for Early Christian Studies Edited by David C. Sim and Pauline Allen Many Jewish and Christian texts in the ancient world were written as a direct response to an earlier situation of crisis that affected the author, or the intended reader. Presented here are texts from both traditions written over many centuries. These chosen works reveal that all manner of crises could contribute to the production or the nature of these texts; including persecution, political factors, religious or theological differences, social circumstances; as well as internal or external threats.

Characters and Characterization in the Gospel of John Edited by Christopher W. Skinner This volume examines characters in the Fourth Gospel and provides an in-depth look at different approaches currently employed by scholars working with literary and reader-oriented methods. Divided into two sections, the book first considers method and theory, followed by exegetical character studies using a literary or reader-oriented method. It summarizes the state of the discussion, examines obstacles to arriving at a comprehensive theory of character in the Fourth Gospel, compares different approaches, and compiles the diverse methodologies into one comparative study. Through this detailed exegesis, the various theories come alive, and the merits (or deficiencies) of each approach are revealed to the reader. Christopher W.

Becoming Christian Essays on the First Epistle of Peter and the Making of Christian Identity David G. Horrell 1 Peter illustrates the complex ways in which Christian identity was forged from Jewish traditions and negotiated in the generally hostile Roman empire. Becoming Christian examines various facets of the first letter of Peter, considering its social and historical setting, and in some cases using new socialscientific and postcolonial methods to show how the letter contributes to the making of Christian identity. It moves in to explore the contribution of 1 Peter to the construction of Christian identity, the persecution and suffering of Christians in Asia Minor, the significance of the name “Christian”, and the response of the letter to the hostility encountered by Christians in society.

Evil and the Devil Edited by Erkki Koskenniemi The problem of evil has dominated theological and philosophical thought for centuries. Evil and the Devil brings together contributions from leading international scholars to trace the history of evil from its origins in ancient rabbinic literature through the New Testament to the thought of Origen and one of the topic’s most influential theologians, Augustine. The result is a fascinating and comprehensive exploration of portrayals of evil and its power and influence on religious thought.

Kenotic Politics The Reconfiguration of Power in Jesus’ Political Praxis Mark E. Moore

Jesus, the Sabbath, and the Jewish Debate Healing on the Sabbath in the 1st and 2nd Century CE Nina L. Collins Based on a meticulous textual analysis of the Sabbath events in the gospels and on the relevant material in the early rabbinic texts, Collins traces the history of the process by which Jewish law accommodated such acts. Part One considers evidence preserved in the gospels that deals with the contemporary Jewish debate on healing on the Sabbath. Part Two traces the continuation of the search by Jewish sages in the second century to find ways to integrate acts of Sabbath healing within Jewish law. The Jewish arguments they composed are then compared with those that exist in the gospel texts. Nina L. Collins lectured on Judaism and Modern and Classical Hebrew at the University of Leeds, UK.

Dennis Sylva presents the first major study examining the paradox that Thomas is seemingly defined both as opposed to a dominant theme in the Fourth Gospel, the eternal life that is a gift to Jesus’ followers, and in support of Jesus himself. He seems to be existentially at home on one side and yet ideologically at home on the other. Thomas breaks down the barriers between the disciples and the world that John takes pains to establish. Sylva’s new work demonstrates the importance of Thomas in fully understanding the message of the Fourth Gospel. Dennis Sylva teaches New Testament at Stritch University, USA.

How can one reconcile the political nature of Jesus with his disinclination to power? Moore’s argument comes in three stages. Part one answers the question “Was Jesus Political?” by examining Jesus’ words and actions that have political import. Part two addresses the issue “How was Jesus Political?” It concentrates on Mark 10:32-45 as a real articulation of Jesus’ political praxis that is consistent throughout Jesus’ ministry and teaching. Part three, “Why did Jesus not openly announce his political role?” examines Jesus’ treatment of the Jewish kings of the past, particularly why Jesus, “meek and mild,” could claim to surpass them in honour.

Conversion in Luke and Paul: An Exegetical and Theological Exploration David S. Morlan For Luke and Paul conversion played an important role in the early Christian experience and Morlan offers a fresh look into how they interpreted this phenomenon. Morlan traverses representative texts in the Lukan and Pauline corpus equipped with three theological questions. What is the change involved in this conversion? Why is conversion necessary? Who is responsible for conversion? Morlan presents theological and exegetical analysis of Luke 15, Acts 2, Acts 17.16-34, Romans 2 and Romans 9–11 in answer to these questions. David S. Morlan is a Pastor at Fellowship Denver, USA.

Laura C. Sweat This book argues that paradoxical language pervades the Gospel of Mark, and that it serves a theological purpose in describing God’s activity. Sweat highlights three paradoxes in Mark 4: Mark’s portrayal of God’s revelatory acts as consistently accompanied by concealment; various ways in which divine action confirms, yet counters, scripture; and the description of God’s actions in ways that indicate both wastefulness and goodness. The book goes on to demonstrate that this paradoxical language is widely attested across Mark’s passion narrative, and that through it Mark emphasizes God’s transcendence and presence. Laura C.

Marcan Priority Without Q Explorations in the Farrer Hypothesis Edited by John C. Poirier and Jeffrey Peterson This book discusses the composition of the synoptic gospels from the perspective of the Farrer hypothesis, a view that posits that Mark was written first, that Matthew used Mark as a source, and that Luke used both Mark and Matthew. The volume is in support of the Farrer hypothesis, with the exception of the final chapter, which criticizes these articles from the perspective of the reigning Two-Source theory. The contributors engage the synoptic problem with a more refined understanding of the options set before each of the evangelists, pointing towards a deepened understanding of how works were compiled in the first and early second centuries CE.

The Theological Role of Paradox in the Gospel of Mark

Incorporated Servanthood Commitment and Discipleship in the Gospel of Matthew Ben Cooper How is committing oneself to God described within the Gospel of Matthew, and how is this related to becoming a disciple of Jesus? How may reading or hearing the Gospel function to evoke such a response? The “pragmatic-critical” method used in this book characterizes the communicative equilibrium between the author and the subset of readers who process the text compliantly. Readers become compliant through being persuaded in various ways of the nearness of the kingdom of the heavens. As they empathize with Jesus’ disciples throughout the narrative, compliant readers are humbled to be served by the Servant and have their sins forgiven. Ben Cooper is Course Director of Fulwood Bible Training in Sheffield, UK, and an ordained minister in the Church of England.

Genesis in the New Testament

Narcissist Universalism

Edited by Maarten J.J. Menken and Steve Moyise

A Psychoanalytic Reading of Paul’s Epistles Itzhak Benyamini

Genesis in the New Testament brings together a set of specially commissioned studies by authors who are experts in the field. After an introductory chapter on the use of Genesis in the Dead Sea Scrolls and second temple literature, each of the New Testament books that contain quotations from Genesis are discussed.

For several decades Paul’s epistles have been the focus of academic and philosophic debate. Itzhak Benyamini seeks to re-read Paul’s epistles using a critical psychoanalytical approach in light of Jacques Lacan’s theory, in order to find which unconscious core this text provides us with. According to Benyamini, Paul has founded a narcissist community of sons who place the Son at the centre of their existence. Consequently, the Christian Imaginary is juxtaposed as an alternative to pagan-carnal pleasure – but also as alternative to Judaic law.

Jesse’s Lineage The Legendary Lives of David, Jesus, and Jesse James Jennifer L. Koosed and Robert Seesengood Jesse’s Lineage explores the interconnections between David, Jesus, and Jesse James. These figures evoked complicated and conflicted reactions from their contemporaries – considered criminals by some, saviours by others. David, Jesus, and Jesse James’ stories intertwine through reference and allusion as Jesus’ mission is understood in terms of David’s promise, and Jesse’s death is understood in terms of Jesus’ betrayal.

Paul at the Crossroads Theologizing in the Space Between Kathy Ehrensperger Kathy Ehrensperger applies the paradigm of multilingualism, which includes the recognition of cultural distinctiveness, to the study of Paul. Paul’s role as apostle to the gentiles is seen as the role of cultural translator. He is viewed as involved in a process in which the meaning of the Christ event is being negotiated “in the space between” cultures. It is argued that this is not a process of imposing Jewish culture on gentiles at the expense of gentile identity, nor is it a process of eradication of Jewish identity. Rather, Paul’s theologizing in the space between implies the task of negotiating the meaning of the Christ event in relation to, and in appreciation of both, Jewish and gentile identity.

Zeal Without Knowledge

Attitudes to Gentiles in Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity

The Concept of Zeal in Romans 10, Galatians 1, and Philippians 3 Dane C. Ortlund

Edited by David C. Sim and James McLaren

This book examines the concept of “zeal” in three Pauline texts. The concept of zeal has been discussed by James D. G. Dunn, who argues that Paul was drawing on a venerable tradition of Jewish zeal for the nation of Israel, that is, a concern to maintain Israel’s distinction from the surrounding nations. Ortlund contends that Dunn has presented an overly narrow understanding of Pauline zeal and shows in this work that zeal refers most immediately to general obedience to Torah. Dane C. Ortlund is Senior Bible Editor at Crossway Books.

Women in the Greetings of Rom 16.1-16 A Study of Mutuality and Women’s Ministry in the Letter to the Romans Susan Mathew Susan Mathew examines the structures of mutuality in Romans to shed light on the issue of women’s leadership in Pauline theology. Mathew begins by analyzing the general form of greetings in the Pauline letters, to illuminate the specific form of the greetings in Rom 16.1-16. She then couples this with an analysis of the leadership of women in the Greco-Roman world. This provides a basis from which to show that the women named in Romans 16.1-16, display Paul’s acknowledgment of some women associates, and point to relationships of mutuality in the greetings.

Psychological Analyses and the Historical Jesus

Jewish attitudes towards the Gentiles can be found in the writings of prominent Jewish authors, sectarian movements and texts and in Jewish institutions. In the Christian tradition, the role and status of Gentile believers in Jesus was always of crucial significance. Did Gentile believers need to convert to Judaism as an essential component of their affiliation with Jesus, or had the appearance of the messiah rendered such distinctions invalid? This volume assesses the wide variety of viewpoints in terms of attitudes towards Gentiles and the status and expectations of Gentiles in the Christian church.

A Scriptural Theology of Eucharistic Blessings Susan I. Bubbers This study examines the scriptural justification for believers to expect the Eucharist to be a place where God will come and bless them with freedom and formation. Bubbers begins by displaying the Last Supper as a Passover meal which bridges between Old Testament motifs and the New Testament Feast. She then shows that the Exodus context reveals a paradigm which links blessing with remembrance. Finally, Bubbers gathers a catalogue of specific blessings, summarized by freedom and formation. Her conclusion is that the Feast is a divinely designed paradigm for worship, which is accompanied by a promise of transformational encounters. Rev. Susan I. Bubbers currently chairs the Board of Examining Chaplains and is Provincial Council Registrar for the ACNA (Anglican Church in North America).

New Testament Theology and its Quest for Relevance

John’s Gospel and Intimations of Apocalyptic

Ancient Texts and Modern Readers Thomas R. Hatina

Edited by Catrin H. Williams and Christopher C. Rowland

How does one establish what is and is not relevant in the New Testament? How does one communicate the ancient ideas to a contemporary audience? This book serves as a methodological introduction to the field of New Testament theology, aimed at a range of readers–undergraduate and Seminary students, clergy, and laypersons. It helps readers understand how practitioners of New Testament theology have wrestled with the relationship between historical reconstruction of the New Testament, and its interpretation in the modern world.

This exciting new collection explores the ways in which the apocalyptic literature of Second Temple Judaism has contributed to the theology and outlook of John’s Gospel. The contributors examine how apocalyptic ideas can help to explain the Johannine portrayal of Jesus as the messenger sent from heaven to reveal the divine mysteries, as well as the Gospel’s presentation of the activity of the Spirit, its understanding of evil, and the intended effects of this “apocalypse in reverse” on its readers and hearers.

Picturing Paul in Empire

Modern Interpretations of Romans

Imperial Image, Text and Persuasion in Colossians, Ephesians and the Pastoral Epistles Harry O. Maier

Tracking Their Hermeneutical/Theological Trajectory Edited by Daniel Patte and Christina Grenholm

Pauline Christianity sprang to life in a world of imperial imagery. This book fills a gap in scholarly work on Paul and Empire by taking up each contested letter in turn to investigate how several of its main themes reflect motifs found in imperial images.

This collection of essays explores interpretations of Romans by the following major figures: the philosopher Immanuel Kant, the theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher, the biblical scholar Albert Schweitzer, the theologian Karl Barth, the political theologian Erik Peterson, and the biblical scholar Ernst Kasemann. Rather than tracking changes in exegetical approaches and conclusions among the modern interpretations of Romans, this volume deliberately follows changes in hermeneutical/theological choices.

Cutting creatively across established ecclesiastical battlelines, Sarah Coakley draws both liberal and conservative camps into a new and serious reflection on aesthetical theology. Each chapter concentrates on a contentious issue in contemporary theology – the role of women, homosexuality and the priesthood, celibacy and the future of Christian asceticism – in an original thesis about the nature of desire which may start to heal many contemporary wounds.The New Asceticism shows how desire can be freed from associations with promiscuity and disorder, and forging a new asceticial vision founded in the disciplines of prayer and attention.

Edward Short No one in nineteenth-century England had a more varied circle of friends and contacts than John Henry Newman (1801–1890), the priest, theologian, educator, philosopher, poet and writer. In this study of Newman’s personal influence, Edward Short looks closely at some of Newman’s relations with his contemporaries to show how this prophetic thinker drew on his personal relationships to develop his many insights into faith and life. The book offers a fresh look at an extraordinary figure whose work continues to influence our own contemporaries. Edward Short writes frequently for a number of magazines and journals on history, literature, religion and the arts.

The Disciples Call

Christianity in Ancient Rome

Theologies of Vocation from Scripture to the Present Day Christopher Jamison, OSB There is currently no shared language of vocation among Catholics in the developed, post-modern world of Europe and North America. The decline in practice of the faith and a weakened understanding of Church teaching has led to reduced numbers of people entering into marriage, religious life and priesthood. Uniquely, this book traces the development of vocation from scriptural, patristic roots through Thomism and the Reformation to engage with the modern vocational crisis. How are these two approaches compatible? The universal call to holiness as expressed in Lumen Gentium has been read by some as meaning that any vocational choice has the same value as any other such choice; is some sense of a higher calling part of the Catholic theology of vocation or not? Some claim that the single life is a vocation on a par with marriage and religious life; what kind of a theology of vocation leads to that conclusion? And is the secular use of the word “vocation” to describe certain profession helpful or misleading in the context of Catholic theology?

THEOLOGY

THEOLOGY

This title offers an introduction for students and lay readers to doing theology in the Lutheran tradition. Lutheran theology found its source, and so its name in Martin Luther in the 16th century. The theology that emerged identified two essential matters for the relationship between humans and God, the law and the gospel. It made a simple but extremely unusual and controversial claim – that it was not the law that made a person right before God’s final judgment, but the gospel of Christ’s death on the cross for sinners. The Revd Dr Steven D. Paulson is Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, USA.

Seeking Humanity

Salvation as Praxis

Theological Anthropology in Interrogative Mood Alistair McFadyen

A Practical Theology of Salvation for a Multi-Faith World Wayne Morris

Dr MacFadyen advances a new understanding of dependence and relation to God as “more than necessary” and that on which autonomy and integrity rest. This is one of the paradoxes of religious belief. The author introduces categories of abundance in relation to human life: human life is made for joy in God. But in doing so MacFadyen wishes to safeguard against the modern over-emphasis on body/soul and the accompanying denigration of the body and instead the author celebrates the body in an integrated and holistic account. This book on the theology of humanity is key to our understanding of where theology may be heading in the new century.

This title argues that Christian understanding of salvation is not about a future in heaven but a way of life that shapes the present. Wayne Morris argues that such ways of thinking about salvation must be given greater prominence when thinking about interfaith questions. In practice, that should lead the Christian community, in solidarity with their Muslim brothers and sisters, to engage in radical transformative action to make the world a safer and better place for all its inhabitants.

Reshaping Ecumenical Theology The Church Made Whole? Paul Avis “Paul Avis presents a penetrating analysis of the current state of ecumenical theology and a fresh vision for its renewal … As Avis’ readers have come to expect from him, this present volume is clear-sighted, highly readable and engaging.” Ecclesiology Reshaping Ecumenical Theology is a major contribution to the study of the Church. It provides clear and authoritative orientation for the student, while probing deep into a range of key issues in ecclesiology and ecumenical dialogue from a critical standpoint that will stimulate discussion among scholars and ecumenists. It reclaims some old orthodoxies, while challenging some new ones, and points to a deeper and more personal engagement with the major traditions of the Christian Church as the way to fuller unity and more effective mission. Reshaping Ecumenical Theology argues that the values of difference and diversity and the priority of mission and evangelisation must shape our picture of unity.

The Postmodern Saints of France Refiguring ‘the Holy’ in Contemporary French Philosophy Edited by Colby Dickinson From the mid to the late 20th century various French thinkers have at times toyed with the label of “the saint”, applying it to friends, colleagues, the revered and even the worshipped such as Genet, Sartre, Camus or Foucault. Despite this profaning of the term, however, there are many subtle truths which emerge from its usage among such writers. This volume is devoted to exploring certain varied notions of “the saint” in recent French philosophical and literary thought from within a theological context, offering insights and valuable contributions toward how we understand sainthood in cultural, philosophical and religious terms.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Struggle for the German Church 1919–1990 For the Renewal of the Church Robert Bates The involved and complex story of the German Church Struggle needs to be viewed within a wider perspective than the twelve years of Nazi rule. Its roots lie deep within the varieties of theologies in the Weimar years (1919–1933) and its effects stretch forward to the eventual reunification of Germany in 1989–1990. Both in his life and writings, Dietrich Bonhoeffer can offer us a useful lens through which to view both these earlier and later dimensions of the struggle. This book offers its readers an introductory but more balanced picture than hitherto available to English speaking readers. Revd Robert Bates is Chaplain to the Westminster Institute of Education at Oxford Brookes University, UK. He is a member of both the German and the English-language sections for the International Bonhoeffer Society.

The Catholic Church Nature, Reality and Mission Walter Kasper Walter Kasper is already well-known and loved throughout the English-speaking world. He has held high office in the Vatican but until his recent retirement has felt constrained from publishing what he really thinks and his vision of the Church for the future. Here he treats complex matters from many different perspectives and angles but always writes in dialogue with the modern world. This book is at once traditional but entirely contemporary. Cardinal Walter Kasper was President of The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. A German by birth, he spends much time lecturing and giving conferences in the English-speaking world.

“Finally, a book that takes on the difference Christianity might or should make for how the disciplines of the university are pursued. This is essential reading for Christian and non-Christian alike.” Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School, USA This volume shows how various intellectual disciplines (most found within the modern university) can learn from theology and philosophy in primarily methodological and substantitive terms. It explores the possible ways in which current presuppositions and practices of the displine might be challenged. It also indicates the possibilities of both a “Christian Culture” in relation to that discipline or the way in which that discipline might look within a real or theoretical Christian university.

The Eucharist Origins and Contemporary Understandings Thomas O’Loughlin In this volume O’Loughlin develops a new understanding of the Eucharist. This can be done by looking afresh at the historical evidence and bringing it in dialogue with modern theology. In the past decades, historical research and new discoveries have changed our view of the origins and the development of the Eucharist. By bringing history into a fruitful dialogue with sacramental and liturgical theology, O’Loughlin shows not only ways how theology and practice can be brought closer together again, but also how current ecumenical divisions can be overcome. His book makes an important contribution to eucharistic theology, both for individual church traditions as well as for ecumenical dialogues. Thomas O’Loughlin is Professor of Historical Theology in the University of Nottingham, UK. His research has focused on the theology of the early medieval period, and on the works of insular writers in particular.

Materialist Neuroscientists and the Immortal Soul A theological response shaped by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church John O’Leary Certain materialist neuroscientists claim that human beings do not have a spiritual soul capable of existing separated from the body after death. Some Christian scholars reply that this is no challenge to Christian belief because Christian faith does not require believers to hold that human nature includes a spiritual soul, still less one that exists separated from the body between death and resurrection. This book examines whether Catholics may share this view. O’Leary examines Magisterial statements, arguing that they cannot be interpreted as containing no binding teaching that the human person has an immortal soul which exists separated from the body between death and resurrection. The separated state of the soul is at the heart of God’s graceful work of salvation in and through history. Fr John O’Leary is a Priest of the Archdiocese of Westminster, UK.

The T&T Clark Companion to Liturgy The Western Catholic Tradition Edited by Alcuin Reid This companion provides both a sound grounding in the study of Catholic liturgy as well as credible scholarly input into the debate about its nature and future by bringing together reputable historical and theological scholarship from varying perspectives whilst maintaining an editorial stance that is firmly grounded in sound Catholic liturgical tradition. Crucial to the importance of the book is the examination of the status of mid-late twentiethcentury liturgical scholarship upon which the liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council were predicated and implemented, and how these assumptions are being re-examined today, particularly in the light of the liturgical reforms of Benedict XVI. Dom Alcuin Reid is a monk of the Monastère Saint-Benoît in La Garde-Freinet, France. He is an internationally renowned liturgical scholar and author.

The T&T Clark Companion to Nonconformism Edited by Robert Pope Protestant Nonconformity belongs to the religious history of England and Wales. Nonconformity has been primarily motivated by theological concern, ecclesial polity, devotion and the nurture of godliness among the members of the church. Nonconformity has also made a profound contribution to debates about the role of the State, to family life and education, culture in general, trade and industry, the development of philanthropy and charity, and the development of pacifism. In this volume, for the first time, the breadth of its activity comes under the expert scrutiny of a host of recognized scholars.

Heidegger – Chauvet – Benedict XVI

A Study in Liturgical Reform Lauren Pristas

The Call of the Holy Hal St John Broadbent

This study examines how the present liturgical texts are like and unlike those used by earlier generations, and therefore how the present generation of Roman Catholics may be different on their account. The entire project has three main steps: to examine each liturgical season to see how the spiritual and theological emphases of its collects have changed; to determine what these changes mean for the year as a whole; to evaluate the effect of the changes on the way that contemporary Catholics experience and live Christian faith. The work is important for a correct understanding of our present Liturgy and its place in the western liturgical tradition.

The Call of the Holy revisits Chauvet’s sources, with special emphasis on Heidegger’s philosophical writings. It uncovers serious omissions in Chauvet’s appropriation of Heidegger’s thought. These omissions destabilize Chauvet’s theological positions and have far-reaching implications, given the influence of Chauvet’s thought, for contemporary Catholic sacramental theology.

On Religion

Christ, Power and Mammon

The Revelation of God as the Sublimation of Religion Karl Barth Translated by Garrett Green

Karl Barth and Jonathan Howard Yoder in Dialogue Scott Prather

“Green provides a translator’s note and an extensive introduction to Barth’s life and work ... those scholars who may have once dismissed Barth would do well to pay the book some attention.” Heythrop Journal On Religion presents a central chapter from Barth’s masterpiece, the Church Dogmatics, in which he explores the phenomenon of religion itself. Including a substantial introduction and commentary, this is an essential introduction to the Church Dogmatics. Garrett Green is the Class of 1943 Professor of Religious Studies, Connecticut College, USA.

This book examines the role of the New Testament concept of the “principalities and powers” in the thought of Karl Barth and John Howard Yoder, showing how this biblical concept of power is central to the fundamental theological convictions of each thinker.

Karl Barth–Emil Brunner Correspondence Karl Barth and Emil Brunner Translated by David Andrew Gilland The Barth-Brunner correspondence, containing 174 letters, offers a glimpse into the dynamic interactions of two of the twentieth century’s greatest theological minds. The correspondence gives a telling account of how Barth and Brunner viewed themselves in relation to Christianity and philosophy, as well as their teachers, contemporaries, and students, ultimately offering a unique glimpse into the theology and the history of the Christian church in the twentieth century. Accordingly, the letters clearly challenge some popular conceptions. David Andrew Gilland currently teaches at Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany.

Christ the Sacrament of the Encounter with God Schillebeeckx Collected Works 1 Edward Schillebeeckx This is a new edition of the 1963 classic which gave Christological thought a new direction. Schillebeeckx draws on theologically fruitful work by phenomenological anthropologists like Merleau-Ponty, Buytendijk and Binswanger. He rediscovers, the notions forged by scholastic theology, and restores to us a theology of the sacraments rooted in the biblical and patristic soil from which they first sprang. Edward Schillebeeckx was an internationally known theologian and one of the leading progressives at the Second Vatican Council. He died in 2009.

Revelation and Theology Schillebeeckx Collected Works 2 Edward Schillebeeckx Revelation and Theology is, in effect, Schillebeeckx’s general introduction to theology. Its fifteen chapters were originally published separately between 1954 and 1962, but the thematic collection offers a vivid picture of the theological renewal in the wake of World War II. Schillebeeckx’s erudition and broad scholarly orientation are clearly demonstrated in this volume. Throughout there are pointers to the (at that time new) ecumenical approach to Scripture and tradition, and the problem concerning the function of the scholastic tradition is also highlighted. Although Schillebeeckx draws extensively on Thomas Aquinas’s thinking, this early work already shows that he is not a (neo-)Thomist in the narrow sense of the word.

God the Future of Man Schillebeeckx Collected Works 3 Edward Schillebeeckx This is a new and revised translation of Schillebeeckx’s 1968 classic. God, the Future of Man contains Schillebeeckx’s systematic elaboration on a number of lectures given during a tour of the USA in 1967. The focus is religion and secularization, viewed from various vantage points: secularization and God-talk; secularization and the church’s liturgy; secularization and the church’s new selfunderstanding; and, finally, secularization and the future of humankind on earth in light of the eschaton (church and social politics). These thought-provoking reflections are presented against the backdrop of Schillebeeckx’s hermeneutic premises.

World and Church Schillebeeckx Collected Works 4 Edward Schillebeeckx This is a new edition of the 1971 classic about the relationship between the modern world and the church. Schillebeeckx reflects on the tension between faith and church life as he experienced it in burgeoning existentialism and debates between Catholics and Marxists in Paris, where he was living immediately after World War II. He looks at social problems and the mutual interrogation of believers and non-believers. Schillebeeckx concludes by considering the responsibility of Catholic intellectuals and academics for the future of the world and the church.

Understanding of Faith Schillebeeckx Collected Works 5 Edward Schillebeeckx The Understanding of Faith (1974) is Schillebeeckx’s most incisive English publication on theological hermeneutics. It contains his principal ideas on this subject, in which he progressively evolved the hermeneutic thinking that he was to apply in due course in his famous Jesus books. The book centres on two issues: how should the Christian message of God’s kingdom be read in our day and age, and can a present-day interpretation of that message still be considered Christian? In short, what are the possibilities and limits of the understanding of faith in our modern age? Inspired by the early Jürgen Habermas’s “new critical theory”, Schillebeeckx also expands criticism of ideology in various directions.

Jesus: An Experiment in Christology Schillebeeckx Collected Works 6 Edward Schillebeeckx The existence of the historical Jesus cannot be doubted. But who was Jesus of Nazareth? And who is he for us today? In this controversial work Schillebeeckx offers his “experiment”: an informative and sustained hermeneutical reflection on the story of Jesus taking us on a quest that leads to the ultimate question of what religious truth actually is.

Christ: The Christian Experience in the Church: The Human Story of God Schillebeeckx Collected Works 10 Modern World Edward Schillebeeckx

Schillebeeckx Collected Works 7 Edward Schillebeeckx This second volume of Schillebeeckx’s “Jesus trilogy” focuses on the question of salvation for all people. Using seven “anthropological constants”, Schillebeeckx innovatively shows the social and political relevance of faith. Instead of starting with Christianity’s great creedal statements about Christ and the Trinity, he focuses on the subjective experience of the first generations of believers as expressed in the New Testament. This choice stirred considerable controversy and a Vatican investigation but inspires readers in their personal approach to Christian faith.

Interim Report on the Books “Jesus” and “Christ” Schillebeeckx Collected Works 8 Edward Schillebeeckx As a result of the publication of Jesus: An Experiment in Christology (volume 6) and Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World (volume 7), Schillebeeckx was accused of denying the divinity of Jesus and the resurrection as objective reality. In this “interim report” he responds to these criticisms. UK June 2013 • US August 2013 176 Pages HB 9780567148544 • £60.00 / $110.00 T & T Clark Series: Edward Schillebeeckx Collected Works

This book concludes Schillebeeckx’s thinking about the relevance of the living Jesus through history, but with a different approach than originally intended. In a time that is characterized by polarization in the church, Schillebeeckx does not forget to look at the unprecedented and authentic flourishing of the gospel. This book contains the testimony of a theologian who tried, during the course of his life, to describe what God can mean for people today.

Augustine’s Trinitarian Thought A Critical Reappraisal of Modern Scholarship on “De Trinitate” Roland Kany

Woman, Women, and the Priesthood in the Trinitarian Theology of Elisabeth Behr-Sigel Sarah Hinlicky Wilson Elisabeth Behr-Sigel (1907-2005), a convert to Orthodoxy in her early twenties and a central figure of Orthodox theology among Russian émigrés in Paris, first began to reflect on the question of women in the priesthood in 1976.

The Interruptive Word Eberhard Jüngel on the Sacramental Structure of God’s Relation to the World R. David Nelson The Interruptive Word demonstrates that Jüngel consistently appeals to the category of “interruption” for describing God’s sacramental relation to the world and its actualities, concluding that the hegemony of the category of “interruption” in Jüngel’s theology of sacrament raises important questions concerning its coherence and tenability.

Trinity, Freedom and Love An Engagement with the Theology of Eberhard Jüngel’s Piotr J. Matysz By critically engaging Eberhard Jüngel’s doctrine of the Trinity, this volume makes a broader, constructive contribution to contemporary trinitarian thought. The argument centres on the question of how one can assert both divine freedom and the inter-subjectivity of God’s trinitarian self-determination. Matysz not only brings Jüngel’s view of divine freedom into correspondence with the anthropological effects that Jüngel ascribes to it, but, above all, offers an imaginative, new way of closely integrating the doctrine of God and theological anthropology.

God Without Measure Essays in Christian Doctrine John Webster John Webster collates related studies on topics in dogmatic and moral theology. The essays present a coherent understanding of the content, structure and proportions of Christian dogmatics, in which Christian teaching is understood as an extension of the Christian doctrine of God, and engage in critical conversation with classical and contemporary theological texts.

The Spirit and the Letter A Christian Tradition and a Late-Modern Reversal Edited by Paul S. Fiddes and Günter Bader The statement of Paul that “letter kills but the spirit gives life” [2 Corinthians 3.6] has had an extraordinary impact on Christian thought through the ages. This book explores the Pauline distinction both in its original context and in its aftermath in the early church, the Reformation and modern biblical studies. It discusses the “letter to Spirit” and the “Spirit to letter” – and their relevance for the understanding of Paul’s thought. Overall, it grapples with the theological challenge of giving the kind of weight to material signs in the world [“letter”] that the postmodern mood urges, while affirming the presence of transcendent Spirit in the world.

Schleiermacher: A Guide for the Perplexed

Martyrdom: A Guide for the Perplexed

Theodore Vial

Paul Middleton

Schleiermacher has been dubbed the “Father of modern theology”, but his influence extends far beyond: to education, the philosophy of language, and hermeneutics. This Guide for the Perplexed brings the results of recent decades of research to bear on the most controversial and important aspects of Schleiermacher’s work for our time.

It can be said, almost without exaggeration, that martyrdom has become one of the most pressing theological issues facing the contemporary world. Since the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, the world has had to face up to an Islamic manifestation of martyrdom. Martyrdom has a long history; as long as individuals have been dying for their faith or cause, others have been telling and more importantly, interpreting their stories. These martyrologies are essentially conflict stories. This book aims to illuminate the way these conflict stories have been told and function (principally, though not exclusively) within Christian, Jewish, and Islamic communities.

Justification: A Guide for the Perplexed Alan J. Spence “Alan Spence has written a characteristically clear, carefully plotted, and even-handed overview of some of the major developments and debates on the doctrine of Justification. This is no mean achievement, given the importance and complexity of that debate, and the passions it has excited. The result is a volume that will commend itself to a wide range of readers.” Oliver Crisp, Fuller Seminary, USA The core of this book is an historical survey of the doctrine of justification as it has developed within the Western church. Attention is paid to the context or prevailing world view in which such a doctrine is deemed significant. Although the focus is on a number of principal theologians there are some references to their peers or followers. Only at the end the Pauline texts are examined. The conclusion considers what part a doctrine of justification can have within a modern worldview in which the concept of divine judgement has generally been marginalized. Alan J. Spence has been a teacher in Harare, an evangelist in the South African townships, a human rights advocate in Zimbabwe and Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa. He is now a minister in the United Reformed Church in Nottingham, UK.

Postliberal Theology: A Guide for the Perplexed Ronald T. Michener Postliberal theology is a movement in contemporary theology that rejects both the Enlightenment appeal to a “universal rationality” and the liberal assumption of an immediate religious experience common to all humanity. Michener provides the reader with an accessible overview of the origins, current thought, potential problems, and future possibilities of postliberal theology. The basic philosophical and theological background are briefly discussed, along with the seminal and predominant theologians identified with the movement. Ronald T.

Scripture: A Guide for the Perplexed William R. S. Lamb Given the extraordinary richness and diversity of contemporary theology, questions about the authority and inspiration of the Bible are probably now even more controversial, more varied and less settled, than ever before. Employing a range of conversation partners, including Pierre Hadot, Paul Ricoeur and George Steiner, this book provides an up-to-date survey of the different ways in which recent theologians use the Bible “to think with”. This volume enables students to compare different approaches to the reading of scripture, and it assesses recent attempts to contain and resolve ecclesial disputes over the interpretation of scripture within and among the churches in Britain and North America.

Barth: A Guide for the Perplexed Paul T. Nimmo Barth: A Guide for the Perplexed offers a concise but comprehensive introduction to the work of the most important Protestant theologian of the twentieth century. The first chapter of the book considers the life of Karl Barth and the context within which his theology was written. Thereafter, the chapters examine in turn the key theological loci which Barth treated in his magnum opus, the Church Dogmatics. These chapters therefore explore the doctrine of the Word of God, the doctrine of God, the doctrine of creation, Christology, pneumatology, and the Christian life. In each case, the key theological moves which Barth makes are first analysed and then evaluated in the light of external critique. The final chapter considers the legacy of the work of Barth, and offers suggestions for further reading. Paul T. Nimmo is Lecturer in Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics in the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Pentecostalism: A Guide for the Perplexed Wolfgang Vondey “Vondey is a sure guide to the global phenomenon of Pentecostalism and its primary and scholarly resources, expertly sifting out the complexities of the many tongues of the movement and charting helpful frameworks to understanding and engaging with it. Beginner students and informed observers alike will benefit from this perspicacious study.” Amos Yong, Biola University, USA This Guide sheds light on the most persistent contrasts characterizing the Pentecostal movement: the tension between local manifestations and global Pentecostalism, the inconsistency between spiritual discernment and charismatic excess, the gap between rampant denominationalism and the pursuit of Christian unity, the disparity between poverty among many Pentecostals and the popularity of the prosperity gospel, the division between Oneness Pentecostals and their trinitarian counterparts, and the worldview of Pentecostals beyond the confines of a religious movement. Those tensions form the essence of global Pentecostalism and represent the emergence of a global Christian world.

Predestination: A Guide for the Perplexed Jesse Couenhoven This is an introduction to one of Christianity’s most controversial doctrines. The doctrine of predestination has been an important part of Christian orthodoxy since at least the time of St. Augustine. Yet it has also long been one of the most controversial of Christian doctrines. A handful of major questions and worries have kept both theologians and laypersons from embracing the doctrine. Above all, these include worries about the implications of the idea of predestination for Christian understandings of human free will and divine responsibility for evil. In this Guide Jesse Couenhoven leads the reader through the thorny issues connected with the Christian understanding of predestination. He offers a historical analysis of the great theologians who embraced or rejected the idea.

Kierkegaard’s Philosophical Fragments

textbook

Tim Rose Søren Kierkegaard’s Philosophical Fragments remains one of the most insightful yet idiosyncratic works in Christian theology. Writing under the pseudonym Johannes Climacus he seeks to answer the question “can the truth be learned?” The truth in question is that of faith and in answering the question Climacus invents a solution that incidentally resembles Christianity, explaining how the truth can only be brought by God and accepted by a learner who is transformed by grace. Alluding to Socrates, this concise work offers a radical alternative to the views of Kierkegaard’s contemporaries on such central topics as the person and work of Christ, the nature of faith and the possibility of religious knowledge.

Bonhoeffer’s Ethics Philip G. Ziegler Bonhoeffer considered his Ethics the culmination of his theological existence, consisting of a series of well-worked fragments written between September 1941 and his arrest in April 1943. In a series of varied beginnings, Bonhoeffer attacks the central questions of Christian ethics. The work is of perennial importance as it represents the most extensive presentation of the themes of Bonhoeffer’s mature thought, and thus is key to understanding his entire corpus, including the famous prison letters. It examines the ultimate origin and fundamental orientation of specifically Christian ethic with powerful theological insights hard won from the crucible of the German Church Struggle. Finally it represents one of the signal attempts in the last century to formulate a Christian ethic on the soil of the renewed theology of the Word.

Barth’s Epistle to the Romans 1922 Donald Wood Barth’s The Epistle to the Romans is a landmark of twentieth-century theological literature and still required reading for students of the history of modern Christian theology. It is also famously provocative and controversial. Its first appearance helped trigger a parting of ways between Protestant liberalism and the theology of crisis. Today, nearly a century later, it continues to generate widespread discussion among theologians, biblical scholars, and philosophers. This introduction to the text is the ideal companion to study, offering guidance on the theological and historical context, key themes, reception and influence.

P hilosophy and T heology

Merleau-Ponty and Theology Christopher Ben Simpson The philosophical contributions of French phenomenologist, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, carry great untapped potential for theologians thinking through some of the central affirmations of the Christian faith. This exploration is structured against the background of the fundamental interrelation between three “bodies” in Merleau-Ponty’s thought and in Christian theology: the material as such or “nature” (the corporeal), the human body as a living body (the corporal), and the social body (the corporate–including language and tradition). Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy offers a finessed and non-reductionistic understanding of the relations between these orders of bodies. Appropriating Merleau-Ponty’s thought helps one think through Christian doctrines of creation, theological anthropology, Christology, ecclesiology, and eschatology.

Ricoeur and Theology Dan R. Stiver “Dan Stiver has provided an essential resource for both those who want to meet Paul Ricoeur for the first time and those who want to engage again in the depth and texture of their teacher, Paul Ricoeur.” Joseph A. Edelheit, St Cloud State University, USA Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) has been heralded as one of the most notable philosophers of the twentieth century. Like a stone skipping across the philosophical pond, he would write a major work in one field, then move on to another. As a consequence, he is one of the most inter-disciplinary philosophers whose work not only brings together such areas as existentialism, phenomenology, hermeneutics, structuralism, psychoanalysis, metaphor, narrative, and political ethics, it bridges the gulf between Continental and Anglo-American philosophy. Despite the diversity one could identify continuing threads throughout all of his work that make him a major representative of hermeneutical philosophy, developing it much further in a critical direction. This book helps one grasp the breadth of a complex philosopher but will indicate his increasing relevance and appropriation in theology. Dan R.

Levinas and Theology Nigel Zimmermann Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995) is of increasing importance to those working in the diverse fields of phenomenology and continental philosophy, French studies, Jewish studies, ethics, politics and religious studies. While a handful of theologians have been drawing on Levinas’ insights for some years, theology in general has shown some hesitance in dealing with his philosophy in any substantial way. In this book Nigel Zimmermann gives proper attention to the “incarnate” aspect of the “other” in Levinas, which has to some extent been overlooked in other introductions to his work. He offers a theological reading of Levinas that introduces theologians to some basic strands of Levinasian thinking which emphasize very much the concrete en-fleshed nature of human living. Human communities (in which politics is always crucial) may learn from the theological shape of Levinas’ thinking, which is always to be understood in relation to his role as a Talmudic commentator and thinker who lost family and friends in the Holocaust. Nigel Zimmermann is a Wingate Scholar. He is completing a PhD in theology at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Deleuze and Theology Christopher Ben Simpson What can a theologian do with Deleuze? While using philosophy as a resource for theology is nothing new, Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) presents a kind of limit-case for such a theological appropriation of philosophy: a thoroughly “modern” philosophy that would seem to be fundamentally hostile to Christian theology – a philosophy of atheistic immanence with an essentially chaotic vision of the world. Nonetheless, Deleuze’s philosophy can generate many potential intersections with theology opening onto a field of configurations: a fractious middle between radical Deleuzian theologies that would think through theology and reinterpret it from the perspective of some version of Deleuzian philosophy and other theologies that would seek to learn from and respond to Deleuze from the perspective of confessional theology – to take from the encounter with Deleuze an opportunity to clarify and reform an orthodox Christian self-understanding.

Hannah Arendt and Theology John Kiess Hannah Arendt is relevant today for reasons as diverse as her rich and absorbing (and quite controversial) thought. It is a testament to the staggering breadth of Arendt’s thought that her work has found a growing audience in Christian theology as well: she is the faithful Augustinian on the question of evil and the betrayer of Augustine on neighbourlove; the conservative realist who can be cited in defence of the war on terror and yet the peaceloving radical democrat who seeks local forms of political action. Arendt, it appears, has become all things to all theologians. There is a need for a fuller, more integrated picture of Hannah Arendt, and Kiess provides this picture. Concise, yet comprehensive, this work presents Arendt in fresh perspective. John Kiess is Assistant Professor of Theology at Loyola University Maryland, USA.

Simone Weil and Theology A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone and Lucian Stone Simone Weil – philosopher, religious thinker, mystic, social/political activist – is notoriously difficult to categorize, since her life and writings challenge traditional academic boundaries. As many scholars have recognized, she set out few, if any, systematic theories, especially when it came to religious ideas. In this book, A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone and Lucian Stone illuminate the ways in which Weil stands outside Western theological tradition by her use of paradox to resist the clamoring for greater degrees of certainty. Beyond a facile fallibilism, Simone Weil’s ideas about the supernatural, love, Christianity, and spiritual action, and indeed, her seeming endorsement of a sort of atheism, detachment, foolishness, and passivity, begin to unravel old assumptions about what it is to encounter the divine. A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone is Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at The University of North Dakota, USA. Lucian Stone is Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at The University of North Dakota, USA.

Judith Wolfe Martin Heidegger is the twentieth century philosopher with the greatest importance to theology. A cradle Catholic originally intended for the priesthood, Heidegger’s studies in philosophy led him to turn first to Protestantism and then to an atheistic philosophical method. Nevertheless, his writings remained deeply indebted to theological themes and sources. This book offers theologians and philosophers alike a clear account of the directions and the potential of this debate. It explains Heidegger’s key ideas, describes their development and analyses the role of theology in his major writings, including his lectures during the National Socialist era. It reviews the reception of Heidegger’s thought both by theologians in his own day and more recently, and concludes by offering directions for theology’s possible future engagement with Heidegger’s work. Judith Wolfe is a Fellow in Theology at St John’s College in the University of Oxford, UK. She is General Editor of the Journal of Inklings Studies.

R eligion and M inistry

R eligion and M inistry

Saint Augustine of Hippo

You are the Messiah and I Should Know

An Intellectual Biography Miles Hollingworth

Why Leadership is a Myth (and Probably a Heresy) Justin Lewis-Anthony

Augustine was one of the West’s first public philosophers. Intellectually brilliant and a gifted writer, he is known as one of the great figures of late Christian antiquity. This biography is written at once for scholars and students but also for the huge number of intelligent lay readers for whom Augustine is a towering figure in the history of Western civilization. It does not set out to understand Augustine’s life in terms of any particular agenda. Its course is directed by the plain narrative of Augustine’s life. This narrative is the key to Augustine’s most challenging ideas – Original Sin, Grace and Predestination.

Is “Leadership” a useful sociological tool for the Church’s ministry and mission, or a dangerous threat, akin to a heresy? Every human endeavour needs leadership. The Church believes itself to be no exception. However, advocates of “leadership” have been unable to give a universally accepted definition of the term. Justin LewisAnthony explores how our understanding of both secular and religious leadership has been fatally compromised by the influence of “mythic” leadership models. Exploring the role that Hollywood film has played in creating ideas of the perfect leader, he shows how, though we talk about Jesus Christ, we expect John Wayne. This book shows how leadership is, at best, a contested concept and, at worst, a dangerous heresy.

Miles Hollingworth is Research Fellow in the History of Ideas of St. John’s College, Durham. His writing on Augustine has won awards from the Society of Authors (2009 Elizabeth Longford Grant for Historical Biography) and the Royal Society of Literature (2009 Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction).

Edited by Bernadette Flanagan and Sharon Thornton The Bloomsbury Guide to Pastoral Care provides a framework for reflection on pastoral care practice and identifies frontier learning in pastoral care research. The guide is laid out in two complementary sections. The first section sets out core principles underpinning the professional identity and practice of pastoral care. The distinctive language and frameworks of the field of discourse that constitutes “pastoral care” is examined. The challenge to pastoral care practitioners to work between and beyond disciplinary boundaries is discussed. The strategies and practices being employed in teaching and researching pastoral care receives attention in order to deepen our reflection and learning in the field of practice. The second section explores nine themes which figure prominently in research projects of graduate students undertaking pastoral care studies today – Addictions, Children’s Well-being, Migration, Ageing, Reconciliation / Forgiveness, Bullying and Harassment, Bereavement, Contemporary Spiritual Seeking, and Mental Health. Each theme is explored theoretically and practically.

Aquinas: The Unread Vision

Spiritual Letters

Biblical Commentary, Mysticism and Poetry Paul Murray OP

Sister Wendy Beckett

Aquinas: The Unread Vision draws attention to important aspects of Aquinas’s life and work which have been all too often overlooked or forgotten. The primary focus of this most engaging new book is to explore the question of Aquinas’s teaching on prayer and to reflect also his own actual practice of prayer. The book is strengthened by quotations from Aquinas in fresh translations. Paul Murray OP works in Rome, Italy, where he teaches the literature of the mystical tradition at the Angelicum University.

The Blue Guide to Grey Living Lionel Blue Rabbi Lionel Blue tackles the problems of old age for the growing grey brigade helping them to grow from late middle into old age. Blue writes at all times with extreme practicality and good humour. As Parkinson’s has now entered into his own life, he writes about old age honestly and spiritually. This is an account of his own journey into old age as well as a spiritual journey through Britain to find new teachers. This is Rabbi Blue at his most sympathetic and at his very best. Rabbi Blue lives in North London, UK. He appears frequently on the stage on college podiums and on the radio (occasionally on TV). He is a Fellow of Grey College, University of Durham, UK and an honorary Doctor Of Divinity. He is currently also honorary Vice Chairman of the Movement for Reform Judaism.

Like a Tramp, Like A Pilgrim On Foot, Across Europe to Rome Harry Bucknall Like Bloomsbury’s bestselling A Pilgrim in Spain by Christopher Howse, Harry Bucknall’s book concerns a long journey, on foot from St Paul’s to St Peter’s in Rome (1,300 miles). Though not as well known as the Road to Compostella, this route, known as the Via Francigena, has been celebrated for centuries. Bucknall is young, athletic, ascetic and a former officer in the Scot’s Guards (having served in Afghanistan). His journey takes him through Southwark, Canterbury, Calais, Agincourt, Reims, Lake Geneva, Valle d’Aosta, Lucca, La Foce, and the Via Cassia to Rome and the Vatican. Harry Bucknall is the author of In the Dolphin’s Wake and has written for a number of national newspapers and travel publications.

Apart from her celebrity status as the art nun, through her television programmes, Sister Wendy has always been passing on sound simple advice to others on the spiritual life and the life of prayer. Here for the first time are collected some of the finest of these letters. Sister Wendy has written a charming and very personal autobiographical introduction in which she sets the context. This little book is a treasure trove of wisdom and wise counsel. Sister Wendy became a nun at the age of 16, went on to live for nearly 20 years as a hermit, and then was exposed to the world in a successful television career as the “art nun”. She is the author of over 20 books with art as the main theme. She continues to live a cloistered life, devoted to prayer.

Prayers of Great Traditions A Daily Office Christopher Voke Forms of daily prayer have been used throughout Christian history, and every Christian tradition encourages regular personal prayer. This book draws on that rich tradition, offering daily structured prayer based on the prayers of key figures and traditions in Christian history. Over 31 days, the reader is invited to engage and pray with the words of Augustine of Hippo, Julian of Norwich, Martin Luther, John Wesley, Søren Kierkegaard, Desmond Tutu, and the Franciscan and Benedictine offices, amongst many others. This is a significant resource for personal prayer, offering the opportunity to engage with the whole spectrum of Christian experience.
