    Paul's "Works of the Law" in the Perspective of Second-Century Reception

    by Matthew J. Thomas
    Foreword by Alister E. McGrath

    When Paul wrote that we are justified by faith apart from "works of the law" what did he mean? Matthew J. Thomas examines how Paul's second-century readers understood the conflicting interpretations, how their readings relate to "old" and "new" perspectives, and what their collective witness suggests about the apostle's own meaning.

    Canon, Covenant and Christology

    Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Matthew Barrett
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    The divine inspiration of Scripture may be confidently affirmed from Paul's epistles. However, it is hard to find such an explicit approach from Jesus and the Gospels. In this NSBT volume, Matthew Barrett argues that Jesus and the apostles have just as convictional a doctrine of Scripture as Paul or Peter, but it will only be discovered if the Gospels are read within their own canonical horizon and covenantal context.

    Myths and Mistakes in New Testament Textual Criticism

    Edited by Elijah Hixson and Peter J. Gurry

    Bloody, Brutal, and Barbaric?

    Wrestling with Troubling War Texts

    by William J. Webb and Gordon K. Oeste

    Christians cannot ignore the intersection of religion and violence. In our own Scriptures, war texts that appear to approve of genocidal killings and war rape raise hard questions about biblical ethics and the character of God. Have we missed something in our traditional readings? Identifying a spectrum of views on biblical war texts, Webb and Oeste pursue a middle path using a hermeneutic of incremental, redemptive-movement ethics.

    The Lost World of the Torah

    Law as Covenant and Wisdom in Ancient Context

    The Lost World Series

    by John H. Walton and J. Harvey Walton

    To modern eyes, what we call the biblical law, or Torah, seems either odd beyond comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively reprehensible (executing children). Using a consistent methodology to look at the Torah through the lens of the ancient Near East, Walton and Walton offer a restorative understanding that will have dramatic effects in interpreting the text and in discerning the significance of the Torah for today.

    The Canon of Scripture

    by F. F. Bruce

    How did the books of the Bible come to be recognized as Holy Scripture? After nearly nineteen centuries the canon of Scripture remains an issue of debate. Adept in both Old and New Testament studies, F. F. Bruce brings the wisdom of a lifetime of reflection and biblical interpretation to bear in addressing the criteria of canonicity, the canon within the canon, and canonical criticism.

    New Testament Christological Hymns

    Exploring Texts, Contexts, and Significance

    by Matthew E. Gordley

    We know that the earliest Christians sang hymns. But are some of these early Christian hymns preserved for us in the New Testament? Matthew Gordley takes a new look at didactic hymns in the Greco-Roman and Jewish world of the early church, considering how they might function in the New Testament and what they could tell us about early Christian worship.

    Mythology, Theology, and the Deluge Debate

    The Lost World Series

    by John H. Walton and Tremper Longman III
    Contributions by Stephen O. Moshier

    The Genesis flood account has been probed and analyzed for centuries. But what might the biblical author have been saying to his ancient audience? In order to rediscover the biblical flood, we must set aside our own cultural and interpretive assumptions and visit the distant world of the ancient Near East. Walton and Longman lead us on this enlightening journey toward a more responsible reading of a timeless biblical narrative.
