Paul in Critical Contexts Series (8 vols.)

paul-in-contexts-130In recent years, the theological conversation has shifted to include a greater emphasis on issues of power, gender, and race. Many theologians radically re-envision fundamental aspects of Christian orthodoxy in the light of these perspectives; others strive to maintain the historic doctrines of the Christian faith, even as they engage in these important contemporary theological conversations.

Whatever your position on these theological issues, one thing is certain: you must have one. The Paul in Critical Contexts series provides eight volumes of in-depth examination on issues such as empire, gender, mission, and race in the writings of the apostle. Featuring the latest in methodology and criticism, especially from postcolonial and gender contexts, this series brings you to the front lines of Pauline interpretation around the world.

The Resurrection of Jesus: John Dominic Crossan and N. T. Wright in Dialogue

resurrection-of-jesusFor decades, N.T. Wright has argued for the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus in a theological arena that has largely discounted the miraculous. Meanwhile, John Dominic Crossan, a co-founder of the Jesus Seminar, has sought to detach the true, historical Jesus from the miraculous claims the New Testament makes about him—especially in regards to the Resurrection.

In The Resurrection of Jesus, these fundamentally opposed scholars face off for the first time. Highlighting points of agreement and disagreement between them, Wright and Crossan provide a helpful dialogue for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the modern debate over the historical Jesus.

Jewish Literature Between the Bible and the Mishnah

jewish-lit-mishnahWhat are we to make of the Apocrypha and pseudonymous works like 1 Enoch? What can the modern Christian, scholar, and pastor glean from the Dead Sea Scrolls, Josephus, and Philo? In this fully revised and expanded edition of his landmark work, George W.E. Nickelsburg provides helpful overviews and detailed analysis of, as the title plainly states, Jewish Literature Between the Bible and the Mishnah.

His detailed analysis provides essential information for understanding the background of early Christianity and how this secondary literature shaped Christian and Jewish interpretation through the centuries. This is an essential work for anyone seeking to understand how this literature sheds light on the historical, cultural, and literary context of the Bible.

Ethics of Hope

ethics-of-hopeThe Bible makes many spectacular claims, but perhaps none is more audacious than the promise of resurrection. Although the promise is grand, that doesn’t mean it’s empty. In fact, according to Jürgen Moltmann, the Christian’s hope doesn’t just affect the future, it has a profound impact on the present. The Christian’s existence—and indeed, the Christian hope—is inextricably tied to everyday life and the most pressing ethical issues of our day.

In Ethics of Hope, Moltmann demonstrates how the hope of resurrection leads to an “ethic of life, an ethic of earth, and an ethic of justice.” This future-oriented ethic has profound implications on issues as diverse as social justice, medicine, ecology, and war.

David’s Truth: In Israel’s Imagination and Memory

davids-truthIn this completely revised edition of a true classic, Walter Brueggemann thoughtfully examines four different sets of David narratives. Each narrative reflects a particular social context, a particular social hope, and a particular community. Thus these stories offer a distinctly different “mode of truth” concerning this pivotal biblical figure. The tribe, the family, the state, and the assembly each has a different agenda and thus draws a very different portrait of David—the one who helps define them and is defined by them.
