Studies in Matthew Book Excerpt:

Translated by Rosemary Selle The work of one of the world's foremost New Testament scholars, Ulrich Luz, this book gathers eighteen penetrating studies of Matthew's Gospel, available here in English for the first time. Luz's groundbreaking work ranges widely over the critical issues of Matthean studies, including the narrative structure and sources of the Gospel and its presentation of such themes as christology, discipleship, miracles, and Israel. Several chapters also outline and demonstrate the hermeneutical methods underlying Luz's acclaimed commentary on Matthew, for which this book can serve as a companion. Luz is particularly conscious of the Gospel's reception history, a history of interpretation connecting us with the past that determines so many of our questions, categories, and values. Studies in Matthew thus constitutes a noteworthy contribution to biblical hermeneutics as well as to exegesis.

The Story of Samuel Book Excerpt:

Samuel was full of life. We all enjoyed his vibrant personality so much. Samuel would not walk the dog, but he would rollerblade with our yellow lab. The whole family gave their love to Samuel and gave themselves for his progress. Then suddenly he was gone our child of prophetic destiny. How could it be? Immediately, the prayers of the saints spread internationally - with a 21st century resurrection being the emphasis. Soon, the theme of Israel and the nations was inseparable from Samuel's emergency during this unique incident of global intercession. What was God saying? What are His plans in moments like these?

Reflections of Immanuel Book Excerpt:

Each year, society cycles back around to the all-important date of December 25. This date is bookended by Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, yielding a five- to six-week festive holiday period within American culture. Yet, the historic church has held to a different rhythm, one that begins with the season of Advent and then moves into the twelve days of Christmas. The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." It's a time of preparation and anticipation as we head toward the celebration of Christ's birth. Some of us have previously walked through the seasons of the church's calendar, others perhaps not. But it is a story that is deeply enriching. Reflections of Immanuel invites the reader to wait for Christmas and join the church's rhythmic story of Advent. As we patiently move through the season, and then on to Christmas itself, this little book offers fresh insights on familiar Scripture passages and themes.

Maqama Book Excerpt:

For the first time the genre of the maqama, the most widespread and popular genre of fictional prose within Arab literature, is presented in its comprehensive history. It was through its stylistic virtuosity as well as its awareness of a situation of social and intellectual crisis that the maqama, portraying the picaresque dramatic performance of a needy literary artist, won global fame. The most celebrated maqamas of Al-Hariri (d.1122) have not only formed part of the Arabic literary canon for many centuries but have inspired even extra-Arabic oriental literatures such as Hebrew and Christian-Syrian and - more lately - modern arabic theatre. (Text in English)Das Werk stellt erstmals die Geschichte einer der originellsten und zugleich meistrezipierten Prosagattungen der arabischen Literatur vor: die Maqame, eine dramatisch-pikareske Selbstinszenierung eines mittellosen Sprachkunstlers, die ihre Einpragsamkeit ihrem gesellschaftskritischen Gehalt nicht weniger als ihrer sprachlichen Virtuositat verdankt. Die Maqamen Hairis (st.1122) gehoren nicht nur seit Jahrhunderten und bis heute zum arabischen literarischen Kanon, sie haben auch die ausser-arabische (hebraische und syrisch-christliche) orientalische Literatur und sogar das moderne arabische Theater inspiriert.

Reading Matthew as the Climactic Fulfillment of the Hebrew Story Book Excerpt:

This book is a reading of Matthew's Gospel as though it were written to integrate with, advance, and conclude the existing body of Scriptures. Matthew is read as though John was the last prophet of God and Israel's last chance for repentance, and that Jesus was YHWH who had come to judge the Temple, priesthood, and covenant nation according to the terms of the covenant God made with Moses at Sinai. Through this lens, new interpretations are given to the infancy narrative, the Sermon on the Mount, the mission, the parables, and Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem along with the events that followed. By reading Matthew this way, a greater appreciation can be gained for its necessary place in the canon, and many of Matthew's well-known conundrums can be meaningfully addressed. As a Hebrew document, Matthew understood the necessity to record the crimes against YHWH/Jesus in Israel and Jerusalem as the ultimate cause for the termination of the ethnically and geographically bound covenant, which could then be replaced by the cross-cultural and international covenant that Christians now enjoy.

Beloved Community Book Excerpt:

An original, comprehensive system of theology especially apropos to the post-Christendom North American context In this scholarly work Paul Hinlicky transcends the impasse between dogmatic and systematic theology by articulating and arguing a single cognitive claim: God is the One who has determined to redeem the creation by the missions of his Son and Spirit. Deploying an unusual Spirit-Son-Father trinitarian scheme, Hinlicky treats the problem of the knowledge of God and the nature of the theological discipline, and he proceeds to carefully develop his system of theology through expansive, wideranging argumentation. Each main part of his work includes discussion of the ecumenical convergences in doctrine gained over the last generation and exploration of interreligious dialogues, especially with Judaism and Islam. Throughout the book, Hinlicky engages with other theologians -- particularly with Robert Jenson s Systematic Theology -- and concludes each major section with a discussion of an alternate perspective on the subject.

The Mythic Past Biblical Archaeology And The Myth Of Israel Book Excerpt:

The Jewish people's historical claims to a small area of land bordering the eastern Mediterranean are not only the foundation for the modern state of Israel, they are also at the very heart of Judeo-Christian belief. Yet in The Mythic Past, Thomas Thompson argues that such claims are grounded in literary myth, not history. Among the author's startling conclusions are these: There never was a "united monarch" of Israel in biblical times -- We can no longer talk about a time of the Patriarchs -- The entire notion of "Israel" and its history is a literary fiction. The Mythic Past provides refreshing new ways to read the Old Testament as the great literature it was meant to be. At the same time, its controversial conclusions about Jewish history are sure to prove incendiary in a worldwide debate about one of the world's seminal texts, and one of its most bitterly contested regions.
