Description : Firmly rooted in his ancestral Jewish traditions, Paul interacted with, and was involved in vivid communication primarily with non-Jews, who through Christ were associated with the one God of Israel. In the highly diverse cultural, linguistic, social, and political world of the Roman Empire, Paul's activities are seen as those of a cultural translator embedded in his own social and symbolic world and simultaneously conversant with the diverse, mainly Greek and Roman world, of the non-Jewish nations. In this role he negotiates the Jewish message of the Christ event into the particular everyday life of his addressees. Informed by socio-historical research, cultural studies, and gender studies Kathy Ehrensperger explores in her collection of essays aspects of this process based on the hermeneutical presupposition that the Pauline texts are rooted in the social particularities of everyday life of the people involved in the Christ-movement, and that his theologizing has to be understood from within this context.

Description : Searching for the Truth in the New Testament offers a comprehensive discussion of many Biblical passages in the New Testament and of those to which they refer in the Old Testament. It presents as well, noteworthy facts about the history of ancient Middle East and the evolution of the Early Church, with logical and insightful commentary. Jon Valset provides an orderly and meticulous analysis of the life and times of Jesus Christ and the conditions under which the New Testament was compiled. With so many details easily misinterpreted or overlooked in the Bible, Valset digs through the maze of seemingly irrelevant and contradictory narratives and statements to present clear and novel assessments of the Biblical texts, free of preconceived ideas and theological goals.

Description : Terence L. Donaldson's scholarship in the field of New Testament studies is vital, as he has pressed scholars to pay closer attention to the complex relations between early Christ-followers-who were mostly non-Jews-and the Jewish matrix from which the narrative of the Christian proclamation comes from. This volume allows prominent New Testament scholars to engage Donaldson's contributions, both to sharpen some of his conclusions and to honour him for his work. These essays are located at the intersections of three bodies of literature-Matthew, Paul and Second Temple Jewish Literature-and themes and questions that have been central to Donaldson's work: Christian Judaism and the Parting of the Ways; Gentiles in Judaism and early Christianity; Anti-Judaism in early Christianity. With contributions ranging from remapping Paul within Jewish ideologies, and Paul among friends and enemies, to socio-cultural readings of Matthew, and construction of Christian Identity through stereotypes of the Scribes and Pharisees, this book provides a multi-scholar tribute to Donaldson's accomplishments.

Description : When his estranged brother, Pastor Paul, makes the two hour trip into Riverton to ask for Detective Lieutenant Matt Warner’s help after finding a dead dog on his property, Matt agrees to at least look at the animal. Matt is intrigued by the strange circumstances he finds and takes the carcass to a local vet for a necropsy. The trail leads into a web of a questionable suicide, stories of devil worship, witches, curses, human sacrifice; and a Catholic priest who will only tell Matt that he must come to terms with what he believes in order to face a ‘most formidable foe.’ The deeper Matt digs into the cult next door to his brother, the more dangerous it becomes and several attacks take place – first on Matt’s house, then on Matt alone, and finally on Matt and his girlfriend Cassie while together. Undaunted, Matt and Paul set out to gather evidence, only to be captured, and the old priest’s warning becomes a reality – Matt must come to terms with what he believes as he faces ‘a formidable foe’ and the truth about his own past.

Description : Paul Jennings, a Director of Employment at Memory Systems, a large international computer hardware corporation, works for a Lebanese-born Chief Executive Officer whom he admires. However, when the CEO hires his brother to manage an intern program filled with Middle Eastern candidates, he becomes uncomfortable with the secretive way it is allowed to operate. As more and more candidates arrive to the company’s headquarters in Denver, Paul becomes suspicious that the program has ulterior motives. When he learns that someone has recently tampered with trade secret files and sees a trend of other disturbing business practices, all pointing to the CEO’s newly hired brother, he calls on colleagues within the company as well as friends outside to help him explore his suspicions. They quickly find themselves searching a variety of international locations, where they not only uncover the evidence they seek but also discover a plot to commit the most horrific act of terror the world has seen since 9/11. Needing someone who has connections with Homeland Security, Paul reconnects with former love interest, Hannah Caitlyn Campbell, who not only helps him coordinate his efforts, but also forces him to reexamine some of his basic tenets for living by using a line from a famous poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, concerning “plucking blackberries.” Will Paul and his friends’ efforts be in time or will they watch the face of world history change in one cataclysmic moment?

Description : Long past the time when philosophers from different perspectives had joined the funeral procession that declared the death of God, a renewed interest has arisen in regard to the questions of God and religion in philosophy. This book brings some of these philosophical views together to present an overview of the philosophical scene in its dealings with religion, but also to move beyond the outsider's perspective. Reflecting on these philosophical interpretations from a fundamental theological perspective, the authors discover in what way these interpretations can challenge an understanding of today's faith.

Description : "Everyone knows about Noah, Moses, and Paul. But what about Hagar, Michal, and Priscilla, all women who had a direct influence in the story of God's people? The Bible is full of fascinating, powerful, and faithful women, as well as lessons that have unique meaning for women today." "In The Women's Study Bible, respected Bible scholars draw out these often overlooked stories and reveal the lives of women at the time and share lessons for women of today. Separate sidebars cover topics such as midwifery, women disciples, and female images of God. The Women's Study Bible doesn't shy away from the difficult issues, but helps readers to understand them better in both their original context and the modern world." "The New Living Translation of the Bible uses inclusive language for humanity and where it is clear that both male and female are meant to be included." --Book Jacket.

Description : The purpose of this book is a search for understanding of Paul's witness about the distinction between the Word of God as Law, and the Word of God as Gospel. To some this may sound strange. But the Letter to the Galatians, direct from the Apostle to one of the churches he founded, manifests the tension between law and gospel, along with their respective functions and unique purposes in the life of the church. The tension comes to light in Galatians 2:19. Paul preaches the tension's result, cast in terms of dying in relation to one side of the tension (law), and living in relation to the other (gospel). The Apostle's instruction responded to the conflicted life of the Galatian church. Now his message about the supremacy of God's redemptive act in the crucified Christ comes to us in our own time and throughout our own conflicted journey. Paul's message is a word on target for people whose religious struggle is, at bottom, theological and spiritual. This is the focal point of the book, Dying and Deliverance. Grace and peace to you in your study, and most of all, deliverance!
