I get update emails, once in a while, from Wipf & Stock. I was pleased today to see that Stephen Fowl’s Theological Interpretation of Scripture book (Cascade Companions series) is now out. I met Stephen last year at SBL and he is a great guy. The endorses for this book are all experts and give his book much accolade. I hope to get my hands on this for some light reading in the near future.
James Charlesworth has written a nice little book (172 pp.) on the Odes of Solomon called The Earliest Christian Hymnbook. He offers his own translation as well. Interestingly,this is pitched almost as a kind of devotional book. The endorser writes: ‘…fine for scholars, wonderful for believers!’
One of my favorite journals, one that happens to be published by W & S, is Ex Auditu; each issue is themed (based on a conference each year) and the topics are well chosen (as are the contributors). The newest issue, vol. 24, is on ‘The Idolatry of Security’. The various articles look very interesting.
