My SBL Purchases (minus Eerdmans books)
The Eerdmans books will be posted, and I am awaiting:
- Fundamentals of New Testament Greek by Stanley E. Porter (together with the workbook)
- Thinking in Tongues by James K A Smith
- Reconciled Humanity: Karl Barth in Dialogue by Hans Vium Mikkelsen
And I am eagerly awaiting the publication of the following:
- Historical Jesus: What Can We Know and How Can We Know It? by Anthony Le Donne
- Paul’s Letter to the Romans: A Commentary by Arland J. Hultgren
- Introducing Romans: Critical Concerns in Paul’s Most Famous Letter by Bruce W. Longenecker
- Darwin’s Pious Idea: Why the Ultra-Darwinists and Creationists Both Get It Wrong by Conor Cunningham
I am slobbering all over the floor just thinking of these babies!
Note the Pahl book, a fellow blogger - and it looks like a real gem.
No idea yet what to make of the resurrection book, but it is going to be a key book to engage with, whatever one's perspective.
The Nienhuis book has been on my list of 'to gets' for a long time, so I decided to take the plunge. He makes a fascinating case that the Catholic Epistles were written, some time mid to late second century, to provide a canonical counter balance to Paul, using the names of key apostles.
I have heard so many good things about Kavin Rowe (genius - remembers almost all he reads type of person), and I need to brush up on my Gospel christologies (hence the Mark book too)
The Disciple's Jesus speaks of a Christology that is reconciling behavior. My own work on paul has led to a similarly radical redefinition of what it means to speak of Christology, though I prefer a slightly different answer. A key book for me to read, anyway.
Given my field of interest, the Hurtado book was a must.
The John books (mostly penned or edited by Anderson) are fuel for some hair-brained theories I am presently playing with. More on all that in due time.
Goldongay's book grabbed me instantly. I love everything that guy writes, and here he answers a set of questions in the order of "what does the first testament say about ..." (sin, God's foreknowledge, prayer etc.)
I wondered a while about the Copan book as my initial read made me wonder if I was dealing with simple apologetics. But a closer read revealed some gems that may be of real value in my classes.
Paul's New Moment - cos all that high falootin stuff fascinates me, for some reason.
Witherington's volume 2 to complete the set (I have the first volume on kindle).
Bob Jewett's Romans commentary! At last! I miss my copy in Tuebingen, so now, at a 30% reduction,was time to grab it. Surely the king of all Romans commentaries.
I was perhaps most excited about Allison's book, constructing Jesus which is making a lot of sense to me, right now (apart from his treatment of early Christology which leaves some huge questions, to my mind, unanswered)
