The Latest Biblical Studies books from Continuum

I just got the new Continuum catalogue in the post and I found some very interesting new titles.

An Introduction to the Study of Wisdom Literature (Stuart Weeks) – I took a course on the LXX with Dr. Weeks and he is absolutely brilliant.  He knows ancient Near Eastern literature better than anyone I know.

Ecological Hermeneutics (DG. Horrell et al).  This is a project that has been in the works for many years on biblical, historical and theological perspectives on ‘ecological’ hermeneutics.  Should be the best thing out there right now in this field.

The Historical Jesus: A Guide for the Perplexed (Helen Bond).  Helen studied at Durham with Jimmy Dunn and has been teaching at Edinburgh for a while now.  She is really excellent at historical backgrounds of the Gospels and is the perfect person to write this piece.  I am thinking about getting a copy of this myself…

Paul: A Guide for the Perplexed (Timothy G. Gombis)

The Minor Prophets in the New Testament (S. Moyise and M.J.J. Menken, eds.) This continues the series which includes Isaiah and Psalms in the NT.

Who is this son of man?: The Latest Scholarship on a Puzzling Expression of the Historical Jesus (LW Hurtado and P. Owen, eds.)

The Audience of the Gospels (E.W. Klink III, ed.) This is an update of Bauckham’s edited book on this topic.

Jesus and Paul: Global Perspectives in Honor of James D.G. Dunn (B.J. Oropeza, C.K. Robertson, D.C. Mohrmann, eds.)  This is Dunn’s second FS, but not his last one!
