PHILOSOPHICAL THEOLOGY

Dual Citizenship

Two-Natures Christologies and the Jewish Jesus Kayko Driedger Hesslein, Graduate Theological Union, USA Political theories of multiculturalism are used to construct a Christology to propose that Jesus’ Jewishness (his past), his divine transcendence, and his relationship with Christians today (his contemporary presence) are all formative of one another in the person of Christ. Kayko Driedger Hesslein makes a convincing case for the necessity and possibility of a non-supersessionist Christology that falls within two-natured christologies. The book introduces multicultural theory as a framework for conceptualizing how Jesus can be authentically Jewish and embedded in contextual Christian communities simultaneously.

Sacred Language, Sacred World The Unity of Scriptural and Philosophical Hermeneutics

Joshua D. Broggi, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities, University of Oxford, UK "Broggi is excellent in his use of Heidegger and Gadamer. Bridging the gap between textual and philosophical hermeneutics is no easy task, yet Broggi’s careful analysis presents a compelling argument for a reimagined look at the unity of scripture, tradition, and reason. Broggi is a careful and precise writer, making this work easily accessible to those unfamiliar with Heidegger or Gadamer. Broggi’s text is a masterful achievement for theology, hermeneutics, and philosophy."

The Freedom to Become a Christian

A Kierkegaardian Account of Human Transformation in Relationship with God Andrew B. Torrance, St Mary's School of Divinity, University of St Andrews, UK The Kierkegaardian account of becoming a Christian has come to be perceived in radically egocentric terms. Torrance challenges this perception by demonstrating that Kierkegaard was devoted to the idea of Christian conversion as a transformative process of becoming. Torrance focuses on 'becoming a Christian' as a particular theological theme that deserves further attention — how 'becoming a Christian' or Christian transformation should be construed in relation to God's initiating and active relationship to the person. He also considers how Kierkegaard was able to negotiate his emphasis on the God-relationship with his emphasis on the importance of individual reflection, decision and action in the Christian life.

The Psychotheology of Sin and Salvation

An Analysis of the Meaning of the Death of Christ in Light of the Psychoanalytical Reading of Paul Paul V. Axton, Central Christian College of the Bible, USA "The strength of the work lies in its ability to create a theological discourse between Pauline language in Romans 6-8 and contemporary psychoanalytical theory as articulated by Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, and Slavoj Žižek ... Axton's work is impressive in its creativity and breadth of knowledge ... and opens new possibilities for considering Paul's thought."

T&T Clark Companion to the Theology of Kierkegaard

Edited by David J. Gouwens, Brite Divinity School, USA & Aaron Edwards, Cliff College, UK Beginning with essays on key interpretive factors involved in approaching Kierkegaard's complex corpus, there are also historical accounts of his theological development, followed by – for the first time in a single volume – focused expositions of Kierkegaard's approach to particular doctrinal themes, from those oft-discussed in his work (e.g. Christology) to those more understated (e.g. Pneumatology). The book concludes with possible theological trajectories for Kierkegaard's thought in the 21st century.

Imitating Christ in Magwi

Edited by Rebecca Todd Peters, Elon University, USA & Grace Yia-Hei Kao, Claremont School of Theology, USA

Todd D. Whitmore, University of Notre Dame, USA

Feminist Reflections on Women's Lives

For the last fifty years, feminist theologians have sought to reimagine Christian theology in ways that speak to the realities and complexities of women’s lives. They have also sought to use women’s experience as the starting point for theological reflection in the same way that men’s lives have shaped the history of Christian theology for the past 2000 years. In this book, feminist Christian scholars of theology and religion use the tools of their trade to examine powerful personal life experiences and to search for new and empowering ways of understanding the power of the sacred as they have experienced it.

An Anthropological Theology

This book achieves two things. First, focusing on indigenous Roman Catholics in northern Uganda and South Sudan, it is a detailed ethnography of how a community sustains hope in the midst of one of the most brutal wars in recent memory - that between the Ugandan government and the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army. Second, it puts out a call for theology itself to be a practice of imitating Christ. Such practice requires both living among people on the far margins of society and articulating a theology that foregrounds the daily, if extraordinary, lives of people.

The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist

Christ, Church and World

Edited by Brian Brock, University of Aberdeen, UK & Michael Mawson, University of Aberdeen, UK

Edited by Michael Mawson, University of Aberdeen, UK & Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen, UK

The Future of a Reformation Legacy

"Recent Protestant ethics is notable for its ecumenism. This provocative volume - without anxiety, caricature, or triumphalism - adopts a fresh approach by rethinking the distinctive legacies of various Reformation sources themselves. At a time when this inheritance can be met with indifference or suspicion, The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist assembles a stellar group of essays that speak to urgent questions of theory and practice. This diverse assessment by leading scholars will be of interest to many beyond the "guild" of Christian ethics. But it is a must read for those within it."

The Seductiveness of Virtue

Abraham Joshua Heschel and John Paul II on Morality and Personal Fulfillment John J. Fitzgerald, St. John's University, New York, USA "[F]or those who do regard happiness as life’s summum bonum, Fitzgerald’s brief book is an excellent place to look if one is searching for substantive suggestions on how not only to pursue happiness but to achieve it. The Seductiveness of Virtue, in putting two of the most important modern theologians of their respective faiths in conversation with each other on the topic of whether living ethically can lead to happiness, results in a felicitous theological antiphony, and makes for an excellent contribution to the fields of interfaith dialogue, moral theology, and comparative ethics."

"For readers looking for guides through the bewildering array of interpretations of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life and thought, they could not do better than the group of scholars represented in this volume.

THEOLOGICAL ETHICS

T&T Clark Enquiries in Theological Ethics Series Editors: Brian Brock, University of Aberdeen, UK & Susan F. Parsons, editor of Studies of Christian Ethics Particularly since the mid-20th century, the fields of Christian ethics and moral theology have expanded and flourished within the academy and have found expression in a range of engagements with issues arising in personal and public life. Theologians of differing ecclesial loyalties have found common concerns within the discipline of theological ethics, developing deeper intellectual friendships through fresh critical investigations of the Christian inheritance and the modes of godly being it commends. This series seeks to foster that spirit as a witness of Christian faith in the contemporary world among those of other faiths and of none.

Sabbath Rest as Vocation

The Limit of Responsibility

Autumn Alcott Ridenour, Merrimack College, USA

Esther D. Reed, University of Exeter, UK

Aging Toward Death

“Through its insightful interpretations of Augustine and Barth and its deep understanding of the later stages of life, this wonderful book reclaims aging as a moral and spiritual practice, not only for the aging themselves but also for those who accompany them. It is both theologically rich and practically wise, and it deftly manages to be hopeful without being sanguine. I strongly recommend it to everyone who is concerned with the theology, ethics, or pastoral care of the aging and especially to those who are preparing for this stage of life.” Gerald McKenny, University of Notre Dame, USA

This volume frames the question of responsibility as a problem of agency in relation to the systems and structures of globalization. According to Ricoeur responsibility is a “shattered concept” when considered too narrowly as a problem of act, agency and individual freedom. To examine this Esther Reed engages with writings by major modern (Schleiermacher, Hegel, Marx, Weber) and post-liberal (Buber, Levinas, Derrida, Badiou, Butler, Young, Critchley) theorists to illustrate the shift from an ethnic responsibility built on notions of accountability and attributions to an ethic responsibility that starts variously from the ‘other’.

The Promise of Martin Luther's Political Theology

Beginnings: Interrogating Hauerwas

Michael Richard Laffin, University of Aberdeen, UK

Edited by Kevin Hargaden, University of Aberdeen, UK

Freeing Luther from the Modern Political Narrative

Laffin demonstrates the promise of Martin Luther’s thought for contemporary political theology by showing how Luther has been over-determined in his shaping of modernity, which frequently deafens us to his unique contribution. In contrast to the dominant narratives of political modernity, Laffin focuses on the political significance of areas in Luther’s corpus often neglected in modern accounts of his political thought, especially his commentaries on scripture and writings on the sacraments.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Ethics for a Globalizing Era

Brian Brock, University of Aberdeen, UK & Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University, USA

Brian Brock interviews Stanley Hauerwas and discusses a wide variety of topics: the role of autobiography in Christian ethics, the problem of race in the modern academy, Hauerwas' work on disability, his criticism of the discipline of medical ethics, his views on just war and pacifism, and gender. Brock challenges Hauerwas to talk about his positions on issues that he normally does not discuss, including accusations of his racism, misogyny, and that his position on Yoder is too forgiving.

Our Common Cosmos

Vulnerability and Care

Edited by Zoë Lehmann Imfeld, University of Bern, Switzerland & Andreas Losch, University of Bern, Switzerland

Andrew Sloane, University of New South Wales, Australia

Exploring the Future of Theology, Human Culture and Space Sciences

The discussion offered in this volume sees the 'community' as central to a sustainable and ethical approach to earth and space sciences. The essays examine the role of theology in this communal approach, but recognize theology itself as part of a community of humanities disciplines. The volume acknowledges the plurality of views on the contemporary interaction between science, ethics and theology, aesthetics, philosophy of science and shows how a constructive and sustainable dialogue is needed within the current scientific climate.

Christian Reflections on the Philosophy of Medicine

Medical and bioethical issues have spawned a great deal of debate in both public and academic contexts. Little has been done, however, to engage with the underlying issues of the nature of medicine and its role in human community. Andrew Sloane fills that gap by providing Christian philosophical and theological reflections on the nature and purposes of medicine, and its role in a Christian understanding of human society. Sloane provides Christians with a coherent and integrated understanding of medicine as a social practice which challenges assumptions about the nature of medicine.

On Animals

Schools of Faith

David L. Clough, University of Chester, UK

Edited by Bruce McCormack, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA & David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh, UK

Volume II: Theological Ethics This volume follows on from On Animals Volume I: Systematic Theology (2012). Here, Clough argues that Christian beliefs about other animals and their place before God have radical implications for changed practice in human dealings with other animals. Following an introduction examining the task of theological ethics in relation to animals and the way it relates to other accounts of animal ethics, the book is structured around particular topics: using other animals for food, for clothing, as research subjects, as labourers, for sport and entertainment, as pets or companions, and as the targets of environmental and conservation initiatives.

Space, Time and Resurrection Thomas F. Torrance

Thomas F. Torrance sets out the biblical approach to the Resurrection in terms of the intrinsic significance of the resurrected one, Jesus; and demonstrates that the Resurrection is entirely consistent with who Jesus was and what he did. The Resurrection is thus taken realistically, and treated as of the same nature, in the integration of physical and spiritual existence, as the death of Christ. This classic volume from one of the premier English speaking theologian of the 20th century remains an important contribution to the field of systematic theology. For this Cornerstones edition the preface is written by Paul D. Molnar.

Understanding Affections in the Theology of Jonathan Edwards “The High Exercises of Divine Love”

Ryan J. Martin, First Baptist Church of Grannite Falls, USA While reading Jonathan Edwards’s references to “affections” or “passions” in his Christian classic A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, most contemporary readers assume that he is referring to the same thing that they call “emotions.” Martin argues that the notion of “affections” in Jonathan Edwards meant something very different from what contemporary English speakers call “emotions.” Edwards’s notions of affections came almost entirely from traditional Christian theology in general and the Reformed tradition in particular. Martin shows that Christian theologians for centuries emphasized affection for God, associated affections with the will, and distinguished affections from passions.

The breadth of engagement effectively demonstrates that prayer was a concern for Barth throughout his work; the depth of analysis reveals that prayer is a constitutive element of Barth’s understanding of many theological concerns."

Divine Simplicity A Dogmatic Account

Steven J. Duby, Grand Canyon University, USA "What a magnificent book. The philosophical erudition of this book alone makes it worthwhile - Duby has a mastery of classical and analytic metaphysics. To this mastery, he adds a rich set of biblical reflections on his theme, demonstrating an equally sure-handed exegetical gift. And his brilliance in drawing upon the Church Fathers, Thomas Aquinas, and especially the greatest Protestant Scholastics forms yet another major contribution. In sum, this book is a surpassing theological achievement of the very highest order. I commend it gratefully as required reading for all Christian theologians and philosophers."

Christian Wisdom Meets Modernity

Edited by Kenneth Oakes, University of Notre Dame, USA “Modern thinkers know they are modern. It is a self-conscious age that, having despised and forgotten the past, struggles to understand itself. “What…am I to make of the world into which I was born? How else can I make sense of that complacent love of moral squalor, that luxuriant banality, that is the singly spiritual achievement of our age?” asks the 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire via the pen of David Bentley Hart. Deploying a perennial Christian wisdom, these essays provide brilliant insight into modernity’s allure and indigence, offering a genuine alternative to the banality of a postmodernity.” Simon Oliver, Durham University, UK UK August 2018 • US August 2018 • 272 pages PB 9780567683809 • £28.99 / $39.95 Previously published in HB 9780567666871 Individual eBook 9780567666895 Library eBook 9780567666888 Series: Illuminating Modernity • T&T Clark

God Without Measure: Working Papers in Christian Theology

John Webster, University of St Andrews, UK

John Webster, University of St Andrews, UK

Volume 1: God and the Works of God

Volume 2: Virtue and Intellect

"Webster’s commitment to comment on the nature of theology, the place of each doctrine as well as its content, and to wrestle with people who disagree on both topics, makes for a read which is, in a particular sense of the word, entertaining. …[God Without Measure, Vol. 1] offers an appeal to most every theologically minded reader regarding where theology has been and where it is going." Princeton Theological Review

"Webster’s untimely death prevented him from completing his larger systematic project, and these two volumes can only whet the appetite of those who looked forward to that project. Yet, they may also stir up a thirst for something much greater than his dogmatics or any work of pilgrim theology for that matter. They may stir up a thirst for the living waters, and in so doing encourage pilgrims on their journey toward the visio Dei." Theology and History

Pentecostal Theology Living the Full Gospel

Wolfgang Vondey, University of Birmingham, UK "Vondey’s presentation of Pentecostal theology is a winsome, masterful account attuned to all the latest in Pentecostal scholarship. It is both innovative in its presentation of the whole of the Pentecostal full gospel narrative as centred around the altar, and yet broadly Pentecostal—and, at points, ecumenical—in its constructive appeal. It will gain a wide readership, and justly so. Indeed, it is the ideal book for an upperlevel undergraduate or graduate course on Pentecostal theology."

Edited by Joshua J. McElwee & Cindy Wooden Key Words of Pope Francis is a collection of over 50 essays by an impressive set of insightful contributors from around the globe, each writing on a specific word that has become important in the ministry of Pope Francis. Writers such as Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Archbishop Justin Welby, Sr Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, Fr James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope’s use of words like joy, clericalism, field hospital, money, family and tears. Together, they reveal what Francis’s use of these words says about him, his ministry and priorities, and their significance to the church, the world, and the lives of individual Christians. The entire collection is introduced by a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Christians worldwide, and a preface by one of Francis’s closest advisers, Cardinal Seán O’Malley. This is no set of encyclopaedia entries. It is instead a reflective, inspiring, and often heartfelt book that offers engaging answers to the question ‘What is this surprising Pope up to?’ UK March 2018 • 224 pages PB 9781472955777 • £10.99 Individual eBook 9781472955760 Library eBook 9781472955753 Bloomsbury Continuum Commonwealth (excluding Canada)/UK/Open Market

Catholic Social Teaching: A Guide for the Perplexed Anna Rowlands, Durham University, UK

Offers an accessible guide to the main time periods, key figures, documents and themes of thinking developed as Catholic Social Teaching (CST). Rowlands takes a fresh approach by building an overview of the central principles of CST with case studies that relate to contemporary social policy themes, and by considering the increasingly critical questions concerning the role of CST in a pluralist and post-secular context. This is an incisive overview of this distinctive body of Catholic political theology, and a new and challenging contribution to the debate about the transformative potential of CST in contemporary society.

T&T Clark Studies in Edward Schillebeeckx Series Editors: Frederiek Depoortere, KU Leuven, Belgium, Kathleen McManus, O.P., University of Portland, USA & Stephan van Erp, KU Leuven, Belgium This series engages with the theological legacy of the internationally renowned Flemish-Dutch Dominican, Edward Schillebeeckx (19142009), the most important Dutch-speaking Catholic theologian of the 20th century. The volumes in this series further the reader's understanding of Schillebeeckx's theology in its context, using detailed analysis of both his more famous and less well-known texts, and providing innovative research that continues his ideas and methods in dialogue with new contexts and theological developments.

A Politics of Grace

Hope for Redemption in a PostChristendom Context Christiane Alpers, Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany "This is the best book on Edward Schillebeeckx’s theology that I have read. Alpers demonstrates that Schillebeeckx presents a starting point for political theology today, in our secular age, that can stand up against the alternatives on offer. Combining theoretical rigor and theological sophistication, with this book Alpers establishes herself as a leader among her generation of political theologians."

Inspired by the efforts of Edward Schillebeeckx to craft a credible Christian theology of hope in a secularized and suffering world, theologians from diverse backgrounds and fields have taken up that challenge anew in the proposals in this volume for a public theology for the third millennium.

Schillebeeckx's thought was deeply rooted in Thomist metaphysics, which he brought into dialogue with the existential phenomenonolgy of his time. Together with contemporaries Yves Congar, Karl Rahner and Marie-Dominique Chenu, Schillebeeckx played a key role in the preparations for the theology of the Second Vatican Council.

The Collected Works of Edward Schillebeeckx Volume 1 Christ the Sacrament of the Encounter with God Edward Schillebeeckx Schillebeeckx draws on theologically fruitful work by phenomenological anthropologists like MerleauPonty, Buytendijk and Binswanger. He rediscovers the notions forged by scholastic theology, and thus restores to us a theology of the sacraments rooted in the biblical and patristic soil from which they first sprang. He describes Christ as the primordial sacrament in a reflection on his public ministry, death and resurrection inspired by the universal human search for such a 'sacrament'. He concludes that the church's sacraments have to be an earthly extension of the liberation brought by Christ's story.

Revelation and Theology

This is 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. 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 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.

Edward Schillebeeckx World and Church deals with the conflict between religiosity and life in the world. This volume includes thoughts on pastoral work among the working class and the then popular pretres-ouvriers movement. Schillebeeckx looks at some social problems and the mutual interrogation of believers and non-believers, also in light of the ideological compartmentalisation ('pillarization') evident in diverse spheres of European society: education, social work and health care. Schillebeeckx concludes by considering the responsibility of Catholic intellectuals and academics for the future of the world and the church, including the possible significance of a Catholic university.

God the Future of Man

God the Future of Man focuses on religion and secularisation, viewed from various vantage points: secularisation and God-talk; secularisation and the church's liturgy; secularisation and the church's new selfunderstanding; and, finally, secularisation 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. In the concluding chapter his reflections on secularisation culminate in a God concept that can function fruitfully in a modern culture that assigns the future pride of place: God as the future of humankind.

EDWARD SCHILLEBEECKX COLLECTED WORKS

The Collected Works of Edward Schillebeeckx Volume 6 Jesus: An Experiment in Christology Edward Schillebeeckx

Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World 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. He presents a Christology ‘from below’, rooted in the synoptic gospels, but especially in Mark and in the Q tradition. At the same time he is clearly interested in portraying ‘the historical Jesus’ as both Proclaimer and Proclaimed. Is the promise of salvation only to be found in Jesus Christ because he was a gift from God, as the Gospels tell us?

This volume is a testimony of Schillebeeckx’ ground breaking attempt to rethink doctrine in the light of the research on the historical Jesus. 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 inspired and still keeps to inspire readers in their personal approach to Christian faith.

Interim Report on the Books "Jesus" and "Christ" Edward Schillebeeckx

The Collected Works of Edward Schillebeeckx Volume 9 The Church with a Human Face Edward Schillebeeckx

This book is about presuppositions and methods of interpretation. Schillebeeckx begins by looking once again at the nature of revelation, at the ways in which religious faith is experienced and expressed in the modern world, and at sources of authority. He then discusses specific criticisms. Can he be called a neo-liberal? Does he devalue the church's tradition? Is his Christology inadequate? What does he really believe concerning the resurrection? Then, towards the end, in some poetically powerful passages, he turns once again to the nature of the Kingdom of God, creation and salvation.

The work outlines the evolution of ecclesiastical office, starting with Jesus Christ and his messianic community, followed by a description of the practice and theology of ministry in the early Christian communities, and tracing different forms of ministry in the history of the Church. Of particular interest is the section on the ‘Complaints of the People’, which deals with the discontent of many connected with the position of women and married priests. As long as women are not allowed to participate fully in the decisions of the Church, Schillebeeckx argues, they will not be liberated, and their complaints will remain a fundamental charge that challenges the church.

Church: The Human Story of God

By the end of the 20th century, many believers have left the unworldly 'super-naturalistic' preconciliar church behind. Those who leave the church, often leave a church that claims to be the direct mediator of God's will. However, the church is not a flawless gift from heaven, it is the vulnerable work of human beings which tries to find accurate ways to comply to the heart of the gospel message. This book therefore contains the testimony of a theologian who tried, during the course of his life, to describe what God can mean for people today.

A New Biography Philip C. Almond, University of Queensland, Australia In this sequel to his earlier biography of the Devil, Philip Almond reveals that – whether in Judaism, Christianity or Islam – God is seen to be at once utterly beyond our world yet at the same earnestly desiring to be at one with it. The way such paradoxes have been understood is, the author demonstrates, the key to unlocking the entire history of religion in the West. Expertly placing the narrative of divine presence within the wider history of ideas, Almond suggests that the notion of a deity has been the single greatest conundrum of medieval and modern civilization.

A Short History of the Reformation

Helen L. Parish, University of Reading, UK When, in 1517, Martin Luther wrote his Ninety-Five Theses he shattered the foundations of western Christendom. The Reformation that followed Luther’s protest against the sale of indulgences fragmented the Church. But it did more, challenging the relationship between spiritual and secular authority, perceptions of the supernatural, the interpretation of the past, the role of women and clerical attitudes towards marriage and sex. Helen Parish here locates the Reformation in its many cultural, social and political contexts. She assesses the Reformers’ impact on art and architecture; on notions of authority, scripture and tradition; and on oral, print and written culture.

The Orthodox Church of Ethiopia

A History of Anglican Exorcism

John Binns, Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies, UK

Francis Young, Royal Historical Society, UK

A History

Ethiopia has the longest archaeological record of any country in the world. It is also home to an ancient church with a remarkable legacy. The Church of Ethiopia is the only pre-colonial church in subSaharan Africa with a membership of around 40 million. This book is the first major study of a community which has developed a distinctive approach set apart from all other churches. John Binns explains how its special features have shaped the life of the Ethiopian people, and how political changes since the overthrow of Haile Selassie have forced the Church to rethink its identity.

The Old Believers in Imperial Russia

Oppression, Opportunism and Religious Identity in Tsarist Moscow Peter T. De Simone, Utica College, USA While scholars have commonly painted the history of the Old Believers as one of survival in the face of persistent persecution at the hands of both tsarist and church authorities, Peter De Simone here offers a more nuanced picture. Based on research into mostly unknown archival materials, he shows them as versatile and opportunistic, and demonstrates that they actively engaged with, and even challenged, the very notion of the spiritual and ideological place of Moscow. Ranging in scope from Peter the Great to Lenin, this book will be of use to all scholars of Russian and Orthodox Church history.

God

Deliverance and Demonology in Church Ritual Exorcism is more widespread in contemporary England than perhaps at any other time in history. This book for the first time tells the full story of the Anglican Church’s approach to demonology and the exorcist’s ritual since the Reformation in the 16th century. The author explains how and why how such a remarkable transformation in the Church’s attitude to the rite of exorcism took place, while also setting his subject against the canvas of the wider history of ideas.

Includes discussion of the work of such cineastes as Eisenstein and Tarkovsky from Russia; Wajda, Zanussi and Kieslowski from Poland; France’s Rohmer and Bresson; Pasolini, Fellini and Rossellini from Italy; the Spanish masterpieces of Buñuel; and Bergman and Dreyer from Scandinavia.

CHRISTIAN STUDIES

Democracy and the Christian Churches

Anglicanism, Methodism and Ecumenism

Ecumenism and the Politics of Belief

A History of of the Queen's and Handsworth Colleges

Donald W. Norwood, University of Oxford, UK How has Christianity engaged with democracy? Donald Norwood reflects on the way that democracy has become, especially under the auspices of the UN and the World Council of Churches, not just an ideal but a universally applicable moral principle. Yet, as the author demonstrates, faith and democracy have not always sat comfortably together. Norwood argues that if democracy is a universal norm, a basic right, it is not possible for the Church to be indifferent to its claims. This is a sustained exposition – from Marsilius of Padua to Christian Democracy and Christian Socialism – of the often uneasy interaction between Christianity and democratic politics as both idea and ideal.

Andrew Chandler, University of Chichester, UK For almost 200 years Birmingham has been a key location for the training of clergy. From 1828 Anglicans studied at the Queen’s College and in 1881 the Methodists developed their own facility at Handsworth College. Andrew Chandler here examines these two colleges. This is a history not simply of the creation and evolution of these institutions, but a study full of significance for the wider history of Christianity in British society. Chandler blends local, national and international dimensions and shows how two theological colleges experienced all kinds of intellectual, cultural, social and political history in a period of change.

Series Editors: Karen Kilby, University of Durham, UK, Michael Higton, University of Durham, UK & Stephen R. Holmes, University of St Andrews, UK The historiography of English theology is underdeveloped. A great deal of scholarship has focused on particular traditions - Anglican theology, or English nonconformity, for example - but these traditions have generally been read in dialogue with international movements, rather than with each other. Alongside this, there has been a persistent suspicion that English theology has generally been weaker than Scottish or German theology for example, a suspicion addressed by English theologians themselves from time to time. By producing high-quality works devoted specifically to English theology, this series draws attention to both individual theologians and the contribution of English theology as a tradition, and enables a more accurate evaluation of their, and its, significance.

Donald MacKinnon's Theology

To Perceive Tragedy Without the Loss of Hope Andrew Bowyer, Trinity College, Cambridge, UK Bowyer outlines MacKinnon’s contribution and context, as well as characterising his work as a form of “therapeutic” moral philosophy that combines a call for intense self-awareness together with a commitment to realist notions of moral “factuality”. Bowyer examines the key influences on MacKinnon’s thought, his focus on Christology, his engagement with literature and literary criticism, as well as his response to Wittgenstein’s later philosophy. This volume offers an appreciation of his contribution and a critique of his legacy.

Urban Ecclesiology

Gospel of Mark, Familia Dei and a Filipino Community Facing Homelessness Pascal D. Bazzell, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany “How can the Church be a community of love and justice to migrants who live in cities, often as homeless? This challenging questions is addressed, with bold imagination and theological depth, by Pascal D. Bazzell. On the basis of biblical teaching and the best contemporary theology of mission Bazzell puts forth an 'embodies ecclesiology' in which the church functions as familia Dei, an image appealing not only to Filipinos but also to all who work with and for the poor. I most strongly recommend this book for pastors and theologians alike.” Peter Phan, Georgetown University, USA.

A Plague on Both Their Houses

Liberal vs. Conservative Christians and the Divorce of the Episcopal Church USA Christopher Craig Brittain, Trinity College, University of Toronto, Canada Christopher Craig Brittain offers a wide-ranging examination of specific events within The Episcopal Church (TEC) by drawing upon an analysis of theological debates within the church, field interviews in church congregations, and sociological literature on church conflict. The discussion demonstrates that interpretations describing the situation in TEC as a 'Culture War' between Liberals and Conservatives are deeply flawed. Moreover, Brittain shows that the splits that are occurring within the national church are not so much schisms in the technical sociological sense, but are more accurately described as a familial divorce, with all the ongoing messy entwinement that this term evokes.

Scriptural Tension, Heraldic Proclamation and the Pneumatological Moment Aaron Edwards, Cliff College, UK "Should preachers feel incapacitated by the apparent lack of unity in the biblical message?

Rowan Williams, Magdalene College, Cambridge, UK

In this wide-ranging book, Rowan Williams argues that what we say about Jesus Christ is key to understanding what Christian belief says about creator and creation overall. Through detailed discussion of texts from the earliest centuries to the present day, we can come to see the various and subtle ways in which Christians have discovered in their reflections on Christ the possibility of a deeply affirmative approach to creation and a set of radical insights in ethics and politics as well.

The Shattering of Loneliness On Christian Remembrance Erik Varden Erik Varden is abbot of the only Cistercian monastery in England. The theme of his reflective book is ‘Remembrance’. Taking half a dozen Biblical injunctions to ‘remember’, Varden performs a close reading of the texts, then lodges them in lived experience through examples from biography, literature, and liturgy. His topics include ‘Remember you are dust’, ‘Remember you were slaves in Egypt’, and Jesus’s instruction, ‘Do this in remembrance of me’. The abbey’s monks follow a lifestyle largely unchanged for 900 years; Varden’s book will fascinate anyone interested in the contemplative life, monasticism, and the pursuit of an undivided heart.

Touched by God

The way to contemplative prayer Luigi Gioia, Pontifical University of Sant’Anselmo, Rome, Italy and University of Cambridge, UK

Prayer: A Guide for the Perplexed

Ashley Cocksworth, Durham University, UK

Luigi Gioia’s book Say it to God examining the practice of prayer was chosen as the 2018 Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book. In Touched by God, Gioia moves on to explore the art of contemplation. He points out from the start that contemplation is not a more advanced way of praying but a greater awareness of the presence of God. The defining mark of this awareness is a unique kind of inner peace that coexists with doubts, thrives in the middle of struggles, is discovered even in suffering, dissolves guilt and leads to authentic self-knowledge.

"This little book on prayer is one of the very best of its kind, and all the better for its limpid prose, unpretentious learning and accessible style. It probes back to the origins of Christian prayer and its theological base, tracing how its implicitly trinitarian shape was there from the start and has always animated Christian renewal. Along the way the reader will learn afresh of some of the great theorizers of prayer in the Christian tradition; but more importantly, the call to integrate prayer, theology and compassionate practice shines out as the Leitmotif of this remarkable little Guide."

Christ the Heart of Creation

Christianity as Distinct Practices A Complicated Relationship

Jan-Olav Henriksen, MF Norwegian School of Theology, Norway Jan-Olav Henriksen reconstructs and analyses Christianity as a cluster of practices that manifests a distinct historically and contextually shaped mode of being in the world. It implies a complicated relationship between the tradition in which it originates, the community that emerges from and is constituted by that tradition, and the individuals who appropriate the tradition that these communities mediate through their practices. Henriksen argues this relationship needs to be described as primarily practices aimed at orientation and transformation, as to think of Christianity simply in terms of belief is misleading. His analysis points to how Christianity may not be very distinct from other religions with regard to the functional or pragmatic dimensions it displays.

To break this silence, Musa W. Dube and Johanna Stiebert collect expressions from both emerging and established biblical scholars in the United Kingdom and (predominantly) southern African states. Divided into three sets of papers, these contributions range from the injustices of colonialism to postcolonial critical readings of texts, suppression and appropriation.

The Beauty of Holiness

God's Body

Joseph Blenkinsopp, University of Notre Dame, USA

Andreas Wagner, University of Bern, Switzerland

Re-Reading Isaiah in the Light of the Psalms "This fascinating study focuses on the Psalms, but especially on their interrelationships with other parts of the Old Testament - with prophecy, and especially and systematically with the book of Isaiah in light of the themes it shares with the Psalms. It is an interesting, fresh, lively volume." John Goldingay, Fuller Theological Seminary, USA Joseph Blenkinsopp presents a bold intertextual reading of Isaiah and the Psalms arguing that, read together, these two biblical books can be shown to form a single religious vision that articulates the fundamentals of the faith of Israel, with its own distinctive character.

"In this eminently readable and engaging work Wagner offers to a wide audience an informed overview of Israelite reflections on divine embodiment within the context of ancient Near Eastern religions" Review of Biblical Literature Images of the body in ancient civilizations are radically different from body images today. This has significant consequences for our understanding of the biblical notion of God’s human shape. Wagner reveals the distant world of ancient body images. He contrasts these with contemporary models, making the biblical concept of God’s body accessible in this rich and exciting work.

Biblical Terror

What is a God?

Jeremiah W. Cataldo, Grand Valley State University, USA

Jaco Gericke, North Western University, South Africa

Why Law and Restoration in the Bible Depend Upon Fear

Philosophical Perspectives on Divine Essence in the Hebrew Bible

"The study is thoroughly researched in the fields of cultural theory as well as in biblical scholarship; it deserves careful reading." Journal for the Study of the Old Testament

"Gericke’s survey is masterly … [his] handling of a wide range of difficult material is to be commended, as is his integration of it in relation to a single theme." Reviews in Religion and Theology

Examines law in the Hebrew Bible from the starting point that law and restoration were not always central themes for the Bible but became so in the writing of texts, as the products of selfish desire and the wish to preserve collective identity rather than as altruistic structures based on human flourishing. Cataldo engages with Žižek, Foucault, and Deleuze and their theories of relation and difference in forming his argument.

Examines the question of what, according to the Hebrew Bible, an Elohim (God/god) was assumed to be. As a supplement to the tradition of predominantly linguistic, historical, literary, comparative, social-scientific and related approaches seeking to answer the question, Gericke offers a variety of experimental philosophical perspectives which examine how Elohim could be considered from and within the perspectives of an extremely wide range of philosophers.

Jeremiah Under the Shadow of Duhm A Critique of Poetic Form as a Criterion Authenticity Joseph M. Henderson, Biola University, USA Henderson argues against a basic assumption of modern Jeremiah scholarship: that poetic form indicates authenticity. Henderson shows how this assumption, introduced by Bernhard Duhm (1901) is shown to be founded on the Romantic identification of prophecy and poetry pioneered by Robert Lowth (1753). Further Henderson outlines how Duhm’s assumption allowed him to create a biography of Jeremiah that closely resembles a Romantic Bildungsroman and to bring the book into conformity with a reconstruction of Israel’s religious history rooted in Romantic historicism.

The Relationship Between the Worship of Other Gods and the Worship of Idols Within the Old Testament Thomas A. Judge, Durham University, UK This study questions why the relationship between the worship of other gods and the worship of idols within the Old Testament is difficult to define, acknowledging how various traditions have seen these two issues as synonymous and others have viewed them as separate commandments. Judge argues that there are four factors at play in this diversity. He introduces the first three through an examination of the relationship between the prohibitions listed in the biblical text, and the fourth through a study of the biblical depiction of the war against idols before and after the fall of the Northern Kingdom.

Covenant Relationships and the Editing of the Hebrew Psalter Adam D. Hensley, Australian Lutheran College, Australia

An examination of the relationship between the Davidic covenant and Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants reflected in the editorial shape and shaping of the Masoretic Psalter. Hensley proposes that the editors of the Psalter understood these covenants as a theological unity, whose common fulfilment centres on an anticipated royal successor to David. To test this hypothesis Hensley examines the Psalter’s references and allusions to covenant(s) in light of editorial evidence.

The Origin of Israelite Zion Theology

Antti Laato, Åbo Akademi University, Finland Laato seeks out the early roots of Zion theology through comparison of the Psalms with Ugaritic and other ancient Near Eastern material. In addition Laato argues that Zion theology is closely related to two specific biblical events, the architectural details of the Temple of Solomon (1 Kings 6-7) and the narrative around the Ark of the Covenant in 2 Sam 6. From this Laato builds an argument for a possible setting in Jerusalem at the time of David and Solomon for the Zion theology that emerges in the Psalms.

The Song of Songs Riddle of Riddles

Yair Zakovitch, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel In this volume Yair Zakovitch examines the presence of the Song of Songs in the Hebrew Bible, and questions how this enigmatic collection of poetic writings came to be within the Bible. Zakovitch examines the role of the Song in the Bible more broadly, and also examines what it can tell us about gender relations and attitudes to beauty, love, women and sex in ancient Israel. Zakovitch also questions whether or not the Song provides evidence of a female perspective, among the predominantly male perspectives presented in the rest of the Bible.

The Land of Israel in the Book of Ezekiel

A Volume of Studies in Honour of Bob Becking

This volume presents an important insight into the history of scholarship on the Old Testament over the last 100 years. Presented in collaboration with the Society for Old Testament Study, which celebrated its centenary in 2017, the volume examines the shifting patterns in scholarship over the last century, from the types of subject studied to the demographic make-up of the scholars working on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible themselves.

The contributions to this volume reflect upon changing paradigms within biblical scholarship, and in how biblical scholarship is taught. Taken together, they offer a multifaceted and informative indication of how open-mindedness in one's approach can yield fascinating results across the study of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. The contributors include Hugh Williamson, Ehud Ben Zvi, Rainer Albertz, Karel von der Toorn, and Christoph Uehlinger.

Going Up and Going Down

A Key to Interpreting Jacob's Dream (Gen 28.10-22) Yitzhak (Itzik) Peleg, Beit Berl College, Israel

"Argues convincingly that Israelites and Judahites venerated a small pantheon of gods, whose functions and attributes Yahweh appropriates. This book should prove useful especially to those looking for a relatively brief yet persuasively argued study of the development of Yahwistic monotheism." Biblical Interpretation

The story of Jacob's dream in Genesis 28.10-22 functions as a mise en abyme. Close examination reveals that focusing on the vision of Jacob's dream and understanding it as a symbolic dream facilitates a new explanation of the dream as a symbolic representation of the path taken by the Patriarchs to and from the Promised Land.

Anderson identifies five main stages on Israel’s journey towards monotheism. Rather than deciding whether Yahweh was originally a god of the Baal-type or of the El-type, Anderson focuses instead on the Omride era, the first period from which there is abundant source material, and identifies it as the first stage in the rise of monotheism.

First-Degree Incest and the Hebrew Bible

Johanna Stiebert, University of Leeds, UK

Sex in the Family

"Stiebert deftly succeeds in examining a difficult subject in a sensitive manner. This is a welldocumented study, full of important insights." Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Discusses all overt and covert first-degree incest relations in the Hebrew Bible, navigating not only the incest laws of Leviticus and overt incest narratives (e.g. Lot and his daughters) but also subtler intimations of incest, such as between Adam and his (absent but arguably implied) mother. Stiebert thoroughly reviews incest studies from the early 20th century onward and explains and assesses the contribution of recent approaches from queer and post-feminist perspectives.

Reading Ruth in the Restoration Period Edward Allen Jones III, Corban University, USA

African Culture, Postcolonial Hermeneutics, and the Politics of Biblical Translation

"Provides many fresh insights into the book [of Ruth], especially with regard to characterization in Ruth." Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

"A compelling case for a postcolonial reading of the biblical woman of Endor." Reading Religion

A Call for Inclusion

J. Kabamba Kiboko, Independent Scholar

With an eclectic approach drawing on traditional exegesis, analysis of inner-biblical allusions, comparisons of legal and linguistic data, and modern refugee research, Edward Allen Jones III argues that Ruth is best understood as a call for an inclusive attitude toward any Jew or Gentile who desired to join the Judean community in the early PostExilic period.

Using the theories of Mikhail M. Bakhtin Kiboko contends that much of the vocabulary of divination in this passage and beyond has been mistranslated in versions used in Africa and in scholarly writings. Kiboko argues that the woman of Endor is not a witch. The woman of Endor is, rather, a diviner, much like other ancient Near Eastern and modern African diviners.

David's Capacity for Compassion

'Sit At My Right Hand'

Barbara Green, Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, USA

Benjamin D. Giffone, LCC International University, Lithuania

A Literary-Hermeneutical Study of 1 - 2 Samuel

Barbara Green applies seven tools from contemporary literary and hermeneutical theory, to present and examine the development of David's character in the books of Samuel. Green demonstrates how the figure of David can be read as emerging from a young naive whose early successes grow into a tendency for actions of contempt, arrogance, blindness and even cruelty, particularly in matters of cult. Despite this, Green also shows that across the narrative of the books of Samuel David's character develops and he moves closer to the demeanor and actions of wise compassion, more closely aligned with God.

War in Chronicles

Temple Faithfulness and Israel's Place in the Land Troy D. Cudworth, Independent Scholar Tory D. Cudworth argues that retribution theology is maintained in the book of Chronicles primarily through the treatment of the themes of war and temple-faithfulness. He identifies a division of Israel's kings into categories: those who uphold and preserve the temple, and those who neglect it. The Chronicler illustrates how, based on their attitude to the temple, kings either prosper in the land through military victory or suffer attack. Across all of these cases, Cudworth shows how temple faithfulness always ultimately guarantees peace and security for Israel.

Divining the Woman of Endor

The Chronicler's Portrait of the Tribe of Benjamin in the Social Context of Yehud "A thorough study of Benjamin in Chronicles, and a useful overview of Benjamin elsewhere in the Hebrew Bible … A very welcome contribution..." Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Giffone examines the differing portrayals of Benjamin in Chronicles and the Deuteronomic History, showing Benjamin's varied and sometimes difficult relation to Judah in the latter in contrast with the Chronicler's smoother portrayal. Giffone sees in this evidence that the Judah-Benjamin relationship reflects the socio-political situation of late Persian Yehud, and from this draws conclusions about the purpose and composition of Chronicles.

Chronicles and the Politics of Davidic Restoration A Quiet Revolution

David Janzen, Durham University, UK David Janzen argues that the Book of Chronicles is a document with a political message as well as a theological one and moreover, that the book’s politics explain its theology. Janzen sees the author of Chronicles as having been part of a 4th century B.C.E. group within the post-exilic Judean community that hoped to see the Davidides restored to power, and he or she composed this work to promote a restoration of this house to the position of a client monarchy within the Persian Empire.

Utopia in Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah

Contributors to this volume consider whether there are proto-utopian elements in the three books from the Hebrew Bible. The essays evaluate the potential, and pitfalls, of reading Biblical books as (proto)-utopian. Topics include how utopia construct intricate counter-realities, and how to tell whether a proposal diagnosed as 'utopian' from a modern point of view is meant to motivate its audience to political action. Case studies which read aspects of Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah as potential utopian traits include the restoration project of Ezra-Nehemiah and the rejection of foreign wives, and consideration of King Solomon as a utopian fantasy-king.

Gunn, Texas Christian University, USA & Aaron W. Hughes, University of Rochester, USA Francis Landy is widely known for his literary readings of prophetic and poetic texts in the Hebrew Bible that revolve around sensitivity to the complexity of language, the fragility of meaning, and the interplay of texts, often returning to the themes of love and beauty, in both the human and the natural world. In this volume, Landy's colleagues and students engage with such texts, issues, and themes using a variety of hermeneutical strategies.

Wisdom Intoned

A Reappraisal of the Genre 'Wisdom Psalms' Simon Chi-Chung Cheung, China Graduate School of Theology, Hong Kong It has been hard to categorise and identify the ‘Wisdom psalms’ within the Psalter. Cheung reexamines the issues at stake in identifying this group of psalms in order to better describe the configuration of this psalmic genre. With the aid of the concepts of ‘family resemblance’ and ‘prototypes’, Cheung proposes to define ‘wisdom psalms’ as a psalm family which is characterised by a wisdom-oriented constellation of its generic features. Three such features are identified and put to test in an extensive study of seven psalms (37, 49, 73, 128, 32, 39, and 19).

Edited by Tommy Wasserman, School of Theology, Sweden, Greger Andersson, Örebro University, Sweden & David Willgren, Lund University, Sweden Highlights Isaiah's process of composition and ongoing reinterpretation over time. The book is divided into two sections: the first part examines certain motifs woven through Isaiah, along with their origins. The second part of the book focuses on the history of reception, such as Paul's use of the book of Isaiah, and how Isaiah is used (and perhaps misused) in the growing churches of contemporary Africa. With a range of international specialists, including Hugh Williamson, Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer, and Knut Holter, this is an excellent resource for scholars seeking to understand Isaiah in greater depth.

Scriptural Traces Violence, Otherness and Identity in Isaiah 63:1-6

The Trampling One Coming from Edom Dominic S. Irudayaraj, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Italy "I highly recommend Irudayaraj’s book… It has something to say about the religious and racial conflicts that have happened and are still happening near and far... a wakeup call for all of us to acknowledge such danger lurking in us." Asian American Theological Forum

Series Editors: Andrew Mein, University of Cambridge, UK & Claudia V. Camp, Texas Christian University, USA & Matthew A. Collins, University of Chester, UK Offers a forum for the critical examination of all aspects of the reception, influence, and impact of the Bible from the ancient world to the present day: its transmission and reception in later cultural and religious contexts, its appropriation and impact as Jewish and Christian scripture, and the influence and transformation of biblical texts and traditions in politics, law, literature and the arts.

A reading of Isaiah 63:1-6 which shows how the image of the blood-spattered 'Treader' (v.3 &6) and the animosity towards Edom (cf v.1) function as a cipher for the prophetic revival of the Yehud community’s theological and social identities.

This volume challenges the perception that the Bible is a static book with a fixed place in the world. Nowhere is this clearer than in Ireland, with its rich and complex religious, cultural, and social history. These chapters examine these issues, highlighting the varied ways in which the Bible has impacted Irish life and society, as well as the ways in which the cultural specificity of Ireland has impacted the use and development of the Bible both in Ireland and further afield.

The Politics of the Revised Version

Alan Cadwallader, Charles Sturt University, Australia Uses private correspondence and notebooks from members of the revision team to examine the politics behind the revision of the Authorised Version of the Bible (1870 - 1881). Cadwallader exposes relations between an imperial, sovereign nation and the position of an Established Church; the aspirations and authenticity of denominations within a nation; the competitive tensions of national and international prestige and responsibility; and the ultimate control exercised by publishing houses that fundamentally flawed the process of revision and the public acceptance of the final product.

Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer builds on the work done in her previous book Zechariah and His Visions (T&T Clark, 2014), to demonstrate that the visionary material in Zechariah forms the primary textual layer. The oracular texts constitute chronologically later interpretations. Zechariah and/or later authors/editors sought guidance in the earlier vision accounts, and the oracular material reflects these endeavours. Tiemeyer’s investigation is guided by the question: what is the latter material doing with the former? Is it enforcing, contradicting, or adding to it?

Classifying the Aramaic Texts from Qumran

A Statistical Analysis of Linguistic Features John Starr, University of Edinburgh, UK Here, for the first time, John Starr applies sophisticated statistical analyses to newly available electronic versions of the Qumran Aramaic scrolls. In so doing, Starr presents a potential new classification that comprises six different text types which bear distinctive textual features, allowing a more refined method of dating the classification and mapping its origins. Starr's re-visited classification presents fresh insights into the Aramaic texts at Qumran, with important implications for our understanding of the many strands that made up Judaism in the period leading to the writing of the New Testament.

The Hasmoneans and Their Neighbors

New Historical Reconstructions from the Dead Sea Scrolls and Classical Sources Kenneth Atkinson, University of Northern Iowa, USA By bringing together evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls and classical sources, Atkinson offers a new reconstruction of the period from the 2nd to the 1st centuries BCE, when the Hasmonean family changed the fates of the Roman Republic and the religion of Judaism, and created the foundation for the development of the nascent Christian faith. Atkinson shows the significance of Jewish sectarianism and messianism in the Hasmonean state, as well as the necessity of investigating not only Roman but also Ptolemaic and Seleucid sources in order to understand the Hasmoneans.

Jesus Research

The Gospel of John in Historical Inquiry Edited by James H. Charlesworth, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA This volume comes to an important consensus: the gospel of John preserves traditions that are independent of the Synoptics and which are often as reliable as any known traditions for understanding the Historical Jesus. As such, the contributors argue for the use of John’s gospel in Jesus research. Contributing scholars include Dale C. Allison, Jr., Paul N. Anderson, Harold W. Attridge, R. Alan Culpepper, Michael A.

The Resurrection of Jesus in the Gospel of Peter A Tradition-Historical Study of the Akhmîm Gospel Fragment

Jeremiah J. Johnston, Houston Baptist University, USA All four canonical gospels identify the resurrection of Jesus, yet none detail the exact moment of its happening. The absence of this narrative detail was hotly contested in the 2nd century, when critics derided a resurrection account without credible witnesses. Thus, the discovery of the Akhmîm fragment at the end of the 19th century, which purports to provide exactly that detail, is a huge and surprisingly under-utilised addition to Biblical scholarship of the Apocryphal gospels. Johnston examines the impact of this discovery, and argues for the dating of the fragment to the 2nd century AD.

Colossians: An Introduction and Study Guide

Janice Capel Anderson, University of Idaho, USA This guide addresses all the key questions for students of Colossians. Janice Capel Anderson first considers questions of authorship and challenges students to reflect on why this question has dominated scholarship. She also examines the letter’s rhetoric and context. The guide considers the audience of Colossians, along with the reception of the household code in Col 3.18-4.1 and the controversies that surround it with respect to slavery and the roles of women. Anderson draws together recent feminist, empire-critical, and postcolonial perspectives as well as introducing students to the material culture of the region.

This study of the Protevangelium of James explores the interrelationship of authors, readers, texts, and meaning. Its aim is to better understand how the process of repetition gave rise to the narratives of the early Christian movement, and how that process continued to fuel the creativity and imagination of future generations. Divided into three parts, Vanden Eykel addresses specific episodes in the life of the Virgin, that present a uniform picture of how the reader's discernment of intertexts can generate new layers of meaning, and how these layers may reveal new aspects of the author's meaning.

"But Their Faces Were All Looking Up" and Reader in the Protevangelium of James

The Body of Jesus in the Book of John

An examination of the biblical data relevant to the atonement, which charts its way through the various theories of atonement that have been advanced through time. Smith studies and synthesizes the biblical material and concludes that it supports both the penalsubstitutionary version of the satisfaction theory and the Christus Victor theory of the atonement, each of which should be viewed as two parts of a more inclusive theory of atonement present in the New Testament.

The idea of writing plays a central role in John. Apart from the many references to scriptural texts, John also emphasizes the role of writing in the inscription on the cross. And then, in the last two chapters of the Gospel, the text points to itself as the place of revelation, as well as to its author. Petterson shows how John produces itself as the vehicle of Jesus’ revelation in place of a body. This takes place through its use of writing, its characteristic use of verbs and syntax, and its mode of revelation.

Tribals, Empire and God

A Tribal Reading of the Birth of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel Zhodi Angami, Eastern Theological College, India

H. Daniel Zacharias presents a literary-critical analysis of the Gospel of Matthew and its interaction with Davidic tradition and use of Davidic typology. Zacharias shows how the use of Davidic material presents to the reader a scripturally-grounded redefinition of what it means for Jesus to be the Son of David: not as a violent militant leader, as was expected, but as a physical descendant of David, a healing shepherd, and a humble king.

This book is the first comprehensive work that offers a description of tribal biblical interpretation and shows its application by making a lucid reading of Matthew’s infancy narrative from a tribal reader’s perspective. Using reader-response criticism as his primary method, Zhodi Angami brings his tribal context of North East India into conversation with Matthew’s account of the birth of Jesus.

Texts@Contexts

This Texts@Contexts volume on Luke-Acts is organized around four themes. The first examines interpretations of Jesus, looking at his childhood, contemporary context, and his teaching – including whether Jesus’ sympathetic response to disease and pain might be used to advocate euthanasia. The second examines social categories: gender, race, and class, including a political and racialized reading of the history of diasporic Black America as a model for reading Acts as a diasporic history. The third examines issues of empire and resistance. The final part looks at society and spirituality, with a focus on modern contemporary contexts.

Disorderly Women and the Order of God

An Australian Feminist Reading of the Gospel of Mark Michele A. Connolly, Catholic Institute of Sydney, Australia Connolly examines how Mark portrays Jesus bringing the order of the Reign of God. Connolly sees this as a markedly male project against which 11 female characters are portrayed as disorderly distractions who are managed by being marginalised, silenced and denigrated. This contradicts Jesus’ message of mutual service and non-domination. In his death under apocalyptic power, Jesus is depicted as isolated, silenced and denigrated. Connolly argues that this subtly associates femaleness with chaos, failure and disgrace and that such sexism must be exposed and rejected.

The Genius in the New Testament

James H. Charlesworth here presents an extended engagement with the gospel of John. Charlesworth's work is divided into four parts. First he examines the origins, evolution and setting of the gospel. Second he looks at the figure of Jesus and historical concerns. Third he examines the gospel alongside other contemporaneous literature (notably the Dead Sea Scrolls). Finally, he looks at John's specific language and symbolism and considers such questions as whether or not it is possible to suggest that Jesus married Mary Magdalane.

Archetypes and the Fourth Gospel

Literature and Theology in Conversation Brian Larsen, Simpson University, USA Explores the interaction of literature and theology by means of archetypal criticism with reference to characters in the Gospel of John. Specifically, Northrop Frye’s system of archetypal literary criticism is employed, which consists of four meta-archetypes (mythoi): romance, tragedy, irony and satire, and comedy. These archetypes offer a compelling summary of literature and form the essential governing framework and means of exchange between literature and theology.

Kathy Ehrensperger, University of Potsdam, Germany Daniel Patte here presents the systematic application of his threefold interpretation of the letter to the Romans. The first part of the approach reads the letter for its theological argument, the second as a call to mission and the third reads it as a work of apocalyptic writing. In this first of a projected three-volume work Patte outlines the development of this approach.

Marlene Crüsemann, Independent Scholar Translated by Linda Maloney, St. John's University, USA

Marlene Crüsemann examines the Thessalonian letters in the context of Jewish-Christian social history. Crüsemann shows how 2 Thessalonians revokes the far-reaching social separation from Judaism, which characterizes 1 Thessalonians, and thus aims socio-historically for a solidarity with the entire Jewish people. Thus, Crüsemann argues, the discussion about a "divergence of the ways of Christians and Jews" in early Christian times needs to be realigned.

The Pseudepigraphal Letters to the Thessalonians

Theodicy and the Cross of Christ A New Testament Inquiry

Tom Holmén, Åbo Akademi University, Finland Holmén's focus in this monograph on the death of Jesus as a source of New Testament theodicy reveals a two-fold reasoning: the continued relevance of the theme, and the lack of thorough and sustained investigations into it. With its special role within the New Testament canon and within the New Testament perspectives to suffering in particular, and its significance in the modern discussion of theodicy, the crucifixion forms a fascinating starting point for understanding New Testament approaches to suffering.

Physiognomy as a Strategy of Persuasion in Early Christian Discourse

Uneducated Early Christians and the Literates Who Loved Them

Investigates how early Christian authors utilized physiognomic thought as rhetorical strategy, showing how this encompassed denigrating theological opponents and forging group boundaries, selfrepresentation to demonstrate the moral superiority, and the cultivation of collective self-identity (particularly in martyrologies). Callon also addresses the tension between the importance of "looking the part" for a figure thought to be divine or divinely favoured (who were typically thought to be beautiful or handsome), and the conception of Jesus himself as physically unattractive.

Allen R. Hilton examines how pagan critics ridiculed the early Christians for being uneducated and how a few literate Christians took up pen to defend the uneducated members of their churches. Hilton sheds light on the peculiarity of this “defense”, which openly admits that the critics have the facts on their side (Acts even calls Peter and John illiterates). Why did these authors volunteer such a negative detail? The answer to this question reveals a fascinating social exchange that surrounded education levels in antiquity and made its way into the New Testament.

“The Time Is Fulfilled”

Jesus’s Apocalypticism in the Context of Continental Philosophy Lynne Moss Bahr, Fordham University, USA

Jesus, the Gospels, and the Galilean Crisis

Tucker S. Ferda, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, USA

Lynne Moss Bahr explores the concept of temporality as central to Jesus’s proclamation of the Kingdom of God. Bahr uses insights from continental philosophy on the messianic, which expose the false claim that time progresses in a linear continuum, and presents these in critical dialogue with the sayings of Jesus regarding time and time’s fulfillment. Bahr shows how the Kingdom is something which brings a disruption in time, one that reveals the intrinsic relation between God and humanity.

Examines the notion that the historical Jesus himself had grappled with the failure of his mission to Israel. This theory, known as the Galilean crisis achieved traction in the 19th century but is now largely viewed as outdated. While acknowledging the decline of the hypothesis, Ferda shows how its logic is still present in scholarship and argues that its suggestions about early success and growing opposition in the ministry, as well as its claim that Jesus met and responded to cases of rejection should be revisited.

An Examination of the Aims of the First Christian Historian in the Light of Ancient Politics, Ethnography, and Historiography J. Andrew Cowan, University of St. Andrews, UK In response to the increasingly popular theory that Luke capitalizes upon the supposed relationship between Jewish antiquity and the early Christian religion, this book compares the writings of Luke to the ancient historians Dionysius of Halicarnassus and T. Flavius Josephus. Cowan argues that Luke’s aim in emphasizing the Jewish roots of the Christian movement is not to attain cultural or political capital, but rather to reassure Christians that the foundational events of the life of Jesus and the early church legitimately constitute the fulfilment of God’s salvific plan.

Old Testament Conceptual Metaphors and the Christology of Luke’s Gospel Gregory R. Lanier, Reformed Theological Seminary, USA

This volume sits at the intersection of three sub-fields of New Testament scholarship: early Christology, the use of Israel’s Scriptures in the New Testament, and contemporary metaphor theory. Lanier argues that the gospel of Luke employs certain conceptual metaphors reflected in Israel’s traditions—“horn of salvation,” “dawn from on high,” “mother bird gathering Jerusalem’s children,” and “crushing stone”— to portray the identity of Jesus as both an agent of salvation and, more provocatively, the one God of Israel.

The Writings of Luke and the Jewish Roots of the Christian Way

Becoming John

The Making of a Passion Gospel Kari Syreeni, Åbo Akademi University, Finland Syreeni argues that the gospel of John is a heavily reworked edition of a gospel that originally ended at chapter 12, with the passion narrative being added by a later redactor. Syreeni bolsters his case by suggesting that the community schism reflected in the letters of John was about this very issue: some accepted Jesus’ corporeal death and resurrection. Others saw baptism as the decisive salvific act. The creation of the Beloved Disciple motif, and ‘doubting Thomas’, are thus seen by Syreeni as appeals to accept the notion of Christ as crucified and resurrected.

Configuring Nicodemus

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Complex Characterization Michael R. Whitenton, Baylor University, USA Michael R. Whitenton offers a fresh perspective on the character of Nicodemus. Whitenton focuses on the benefit of Hellenistic rhetoric and cognitive science for understanding how ancient audiences may have construed this interesting, if somewhat confusing, character. Whitenton offers an interdisciplinary approach to characterization, drawing on cognitive science, Greek stock characters, ancient rhetoric, and modern literary theory. He then turns his attention to the characterization of Nicodemus, where he argues that Nicodemus would likely be understood initially as a dissembler, only to break that mold later in the narrative, suggesting a journey toward Johannine faith.

Christ, Creation and the Cosmic Goal of Redemption A Study of Pauline Creation Theology as Read by Irenaeus and Applied to Ecotheology

J.J. Johnson Leese, Seattle Pacific University, USA J.J. Johnson Leese shows that the apostle Paul’s writing about Christ’s relationship to creation read alongside the astute interpretation of these texts by Irenaeus of Lyon can provide a meaningful contribution to the contemporary ecotheological conversation. Leese shows how Irenaeus’ creation theology was constructed through connecting and organizing biblical creation texts into a Christological framework. Irenaeus’ approach provides possibilities for Paul to contribute to ecotheology, not as a set of unconnected proof texts, but by way of a theological vision where the whole of reality in relationship to Christ and creation are central components of Paul’s theology.

The Fear of God in 2 Corinthians 7:1 Its Salvation - Historical, Literary, and Eschatological Contexts

Euichang Kim, Torch Trinity Graduate University, Korea Euichang Kim focuses upon the phrase "the fear of God" in 2 Corinthians, pointing to the wider contexts these words have in Old Testament passages quoted by Paul, and in writings of the Second Temple period. Kim demonstrates that God’s eschatological promises – in particular his coming judgment, his promise to redeem his people, and his promise of a new covenant – are intertwined with this motif of "fear" and shows how Paul intends for this to motivate righteous behavior.

The Violence of the Lamb

Martyrs as Agents of Divine Judgement in the Book of Revelation Paul Middleton, University of Chester, UK Martyrdom, in the worldview of the Apocalypse, was an exemplification of non-violent resistance. Paul Middleton, however, sees it as a representation of direct participation by Christians in divine violence against those portrayed in the book of Revelation as God's enemies.

The New Testament and the Church

Essays in Honour of John Muddiman Edited by John Barton, University of Oxford, UK & Peter Groves, University of Oxford, UK John Barton and Peter Groves present a range of chapters by leading scholarly voices from the worlds of biblical studies and the Church, looking at the study of the New Testament within and around the Church and the impact it has had and can have on Christian theology. The essays in the volume adopt a style of critical engagement with biblical texts, through the prism of a modern and living Church. The focus of the volume is thus not only upon the New Testament itself, but also upon how reading the New Testament is important for dialogue within the Church.

The Quest for the Historical Jesus after the Demise of Authenticity

Toward a Critical Realist Philosophy of History in Jesus Studies Jonathan Bernier, St Francis Xavier University, Canada Presently Jesus scholarship is dominated not by the question 'Who was Jesus?' but rather 'How do we even go about answering the question, "Who was Jesus?"?' With this current situation in mind, Jonathan Bernier undertakes a two-fold task: one, to engage on the level of the philosophy of history with existing approaches to the study of the historical Jesus, most notably the criteria approach and the social memory approach; two, to work with the critical realism developed by Bernard Lonergan in order to develop a philosophy of history that can elucidate current debates within historical Jesus studies.

Jesus and the Scriptures

Problems, Passages and Patterns Edited by Tobias Hägerland, Lund University, Sweden The four Gospels unanimously present Jesus as someone who quoted from, commented on, and engaged with the Scriptures of Israel.

In this book, eleven expert researchers from four different continents tackle the question anew.

Utilizing the Old Testament and Second Temple sources Kristian Bendoraitis identifies how angel traditions are reflected in Matthew’s Gospel, resulting in a detailed exegesis of those passages which specifically mention angels. Bendoraitis analyses each passage in view of its role in the Gospel’s narrative and in light of Matthew’s redactional hand. In addition, each chapter is accompanied by a discussion of relevant traditions of angels in order to illustrate how Matthew’s use of angels has facilitated his Gospel’s message.

Alexey Somov addresses these queries in relation to the apparent confusion and variety found in the text, in respect of the interrelatedness of these issues, and their connection with other eschatological issues in Luke-Acts, and in relation to the wider cultural context of the Mediterranean world to which Luke belonged.

The Davidic Shepherd King in the Lukan Narrative

Sarah Harris, Carey Baptist College, New Zealand Beginning with the infancy narrative, Sarah Harris moves to later events portrayed in Jesus' ministry in which he is seen to enact his message as God's faithful Davidic shepherd, in particular, the parable of the Lost Sheep and the Zaccheus pericope (19:1-10). Harris uses this latter encounter to underline her thesis that Jesus may be hailed as a King by the crowds as he enters Jerusalem, but he is not simply a king. He is God's Davidic Shepherd King, as prophesied in Ezekiel 34, who brings the gospel of peace and salvation to the earth.

He makes a thorough review of Luke’s use of the Old Testament, and proposes that relevance theory is a capable hermeneutic tool to reconstruct how Luke’s readers would have understood references to the Old Testament. Using this approach, the key texts from Luke-Acts are examined sequentially, and Luke’s apparent criticism of the temple is examined in a new light.

Creation Imagery in the Gospel of John Carlos Raul Sosa Siliezar, Central American Theological Seminary, Guatemala

Sosa Siliezar investigates the presence and significance of creation imagery in the Gospel of John. He argues that John has intentionally included only a limited (albeit significant) number of instances of creation imagery and that he has positioned them carefully to highlight their significance. Sosa Siliezar contends that the instances of creation imagery function collectively in a threefold way. First, John uses them to portray Jesus in close relationship with his Father. Second, they assert the primal and universal significance of Jesus. Third, they link past reality with present and future reality, portraying Jesus as the agent of creation.

An Intertextual Approach to Jesus' Laments Over Jerusalem and Stephen's Speech

Written To Serve

The Use of Scripture in 1 Peter Benjamin Sargent, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford In Written to Serve Benjamin Sargent offers an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of how 1 Pet 1.10-12 offers a ‘hermeneutic,’ providing an insight into how Scripture is interpreted in the letter. Rather than offering a Christological hermeneutic with a focus on the suffering and glories of Christ, Sargent asserts that the primary importance of 1.10-12 is its orientation of the prophetic witness towards the eschatological community as an act of service. Similarly Sargent suggests that 1.10-12 may be seen as a narrative of profound discontinuity in which the present community is elevated above God’s people of the past.

Paul's Letters and the Construction of the European Self Fatima Tofighi, University of Religions, Iran

Even when he was a prototype of European identity, Paul transgressed the limits of Europe. It is not clear whether he was conformist or rebellious, orthodox or liberal, sexist, or egalitarian. Instead of pushing Paul into the arbitrary categories of modern European identity, Fatima Tofighi takes into account the challenge that Paul brings to normative conceptions of political theology (Rom 13), 'religion' (Gal 2.12-14), and women's veiling (1 Cor 11. 5-16). Alternative interpretations of these passages, with the help of postmodern theory, both solve the major problems of biblical exegesis and offer a critique of the allegedly welldefined European categories.

Washings and Meals in Galatians and 1 Corinthians

The focus of this work is the two rituals that identified the Pauline communities: ritual washings and ritual meals. By exploring Paul’s references in Galatians and 1 Corinthians to ritual washings and meals with a heuristic use of ritual theory, Turley concludes that rituals in early Christianity were inherently revelatory, in that they revealed the dawning of the messianic age through the bodies of the ritual participants. This bodily revelation established both a distinctly Christian ethic and a distinctly Christian social space by which such an ethical identity might be identified and sustained.

Journal for the Study of the New Testament Tõniste develops an approach that respects Revelation as a part of Christian scripture composed by and for the church, whilst simultaneously making use of respected modern methods that support unity (literary, canonical, and narrative criticism, intertextuality, and canonical location) to arrive at theologically sensible and satisfying interpretations of Revelation as the ending of the canon.

Reading Revelation as Pastiche Imitating the Past

Michelle Fletcher, University of Kent, UK Fletcher examines Revelation in the light of Old Testament texts and the methods traditionally used to examine their relationship with Revelation, as well as the study of Greco-Roman literary methods of combination and imitation. She argues that Revelation should be seen as a combined and imitative text which actively engages its audience through signalling to multiple texts and multiple textual experiences: in short, it is an act of pastiche.

The Testimony of the Exalted Jesus

The 'Testimony of Jesus' in the Book of Revelation Sarah Underwood Dixon, University of Cambridge, UK One of the most important, but often neglected, issues in the interpretation of the phrase 'the testimony of Jesus' in the Book of Revelation has been whether the phrase can be read consistently across each instance of its occurrence. Dixon explores the use of this phrase and shows that 'the testimony of Jesus' is not just another title for John's writing, but is something that is given to and even characterizes those who hear the message of the Apocalypse.

The Reception of Jesus in the First Three Centuries Three-Volume Set

Edited by Chris Keith, St. Mary’s University, UK, Helen K. Bond, University of Edinburgh, UK, Christine Jacobi, Humboldt University Berlin, Germany & Jens Schröter, Humboldt University Berlin, Germany These volumes focus upon the diversity of receptions of the Jesus tradition, with memory theory providing the framework for the approach. Core literary texts such as Gospels and other early Christian writings are discussed in detail, but the volumes also highlight the importance of literary and non-literary contexts outside the gospel genre; including the Apostolic Fathers, patristic writers, traditions such as the Abgar Legend, and modifications to the gospel genre such as the Diatesseron. Evidence from material culture, such as pictographic representations of Jesus in the staurogram and Alexamenos Graffito, as well as sarcophagi carvings, are also included.
