Hope for a Tender Sprig

Doubling and Duplicating in the Book of Genesis

Hope for a Tender Sprig by Matthew H. Patton

List Price: $49.50
Your Price: $44.55

In press!

Jehoiachin reigned a mere three months before Nebuchadnezzar took him into exile. He was one more Judean king who did evil in the eyes of Yahweh, and his one recorded action as king was to surrender to the Babylonians. How significant can a king be whose reign ended when it had scarcely begun? Remarkably, unlike his uncles, Jehoahaz and Zedekiah, Jehoiachin did not disappear after his removal. Instead, he became the focus of ongoing prophetic discussion about the monarchy, his rehabilitation by Evil-Merodach was a tu . . . (more)

Doubling and Duplicating in the Book of Genesis Edited by Elizabeth R. Hayes and Karolien Vermeulen

List Price: $59.50
Your Price: $53.55

The style of the Hebrew Bible has long been of significant interest to scholars and exegetes alike. Early Jewish and later Christian commentaries point out the importance of the exact wording in interpreting the text, and many an article has been written on features such as repetition and inclusio. With the rise of literary and narrative criticism in biblical studies, these features have received even more attention. The current book stands in the tradition of Robert Alter in that it focuses on how the text of Genesis is written and phr . . . (more)

I, You, and the Word "God"

Adam and Eve Story in the Hebrew Bible and in Ancient Jewish Writings Including the New Testament

I, You, and the Word by Sarah Zhang

List Price: $44.50
Your Price: $40.05

I, You, and the Word “God” introduces the approach of lyrical ethics, inspired by Emmanuel Levinas’s ethical-phenomenological philosophy. Through the optics of lyrical ethics, the reader discovers how the ancient erotic poems of the Song of Songs bear ethical and theological significance for contemporary readers. Levinas’s intertwined concepts—oneself qua sensibility, otherness perceived through responsibility, and transcendence embodied in one’s love for the other—reveal themselves as lyrical colors woven into the fabric  . . . (more)

Honor, Shame, and Guilt
Hostility in the House of God
The Land before the Kingdom of Israel

Honor, Shame, and Guilt

by Daniel Y. Wu

List Price: $47.50
Your Price: $42.75

In this study, Wu explores how the concepts honor, shame, and guilt function in the book of Ezekiel, as well as in the wider contexts of their general use in anthropological or social-scientific approaches to biblical studies. He frames Ezekiel’s key terms for honor (kabod) shame (bosh), and guilt ('awah) within an analysis of a broad perspective on these terms in the body of the Old Testament as a way of forming the “concept spheres” within which the specific instances of each term in Ezekiel sit. Wu gleans insigh . . . (more)

Hostility in the House of God

by Dillon T. Thornton

List Price: $54.50
Your Price: $49.05

Virtually all scholars acknowledge the presence of opponents in 1 and 2 Timothy, but there is considerable disagreement over the identity of these opponents and the author's way of handling them. In this volume, Thornton provides a critique of a number of extant theories, including "Gnostic," Jewish, and proto-Montanist identifications, and develops a rigorous methodology for unmasking the opponents who appear in these letters. He argues that the opponents came from within the Christian community in Ephesus and that their teaching is be . . . (more)

The Land before the Kingdom of Israel

by Brendon C. Benz

List Price: $69.50
Your Price: $62.55

Based on several core traditions that dominate the biblical narrative, Israel is widely regarded as having been set apart from among the nations, representing a unique sociopolitical entity in the ancient world. United by a common tribal identity and a commitment to worshiping the God who delivered them from Egypt exclusively, the Israelites established an egalitarian community in the southern Levant that stood in contrast to the hierarchical polities of their polytheistic neighbors in the land of Canaan.

In spite of these tradi . . . (more)
