Empire, Economics, and the New Testament

  • Author: Peter Oakes
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Peter Oakes has long been recognized for his illuminating use of Greco-Roman material culture and social-scientific criticism to interpret the New Testament. This volume combines his best work in a single volume and introduces a substantial new essay that challenges current scholarly approaches to paradoxical teachings of the New Testament.

Of special interest to Oakes throughout this book is the concrete impact of economic realities and Roman imperialism on first-century Christian communities meeting in house churches. To address this, Oakes considers an array of textual and archaeological resources from first-century non-elite life, including extensive archaeological evidence available from Pompeii. Readers will find here a deep trove of wisdom for understanding the New Testament in the context of the Greco-Roman world.

Peter Oakes is professor of New Testament at the University of Manchester. His other books include Reading Romans in Pompeii: Paul’s Letter at Ground Level.

Paul and the Power of Grace

  • Author: John M. G. Barclay
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 200

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Paul and the Gift changed the landscape of Pauline studies forever upon its publication in 2015. In it, John Barclay led readers through a recontextualized analysis of grace and interrogated Paul’s original meaning in declaring it a “free gift” from God, revealing grace as a multifaceted concept that is socially radical and unconditioned—even if not unconditional.

Paul and the Power of Grace offers all of the most significant contributions from Paul and the Gift in a package several hundred pages lighter and more accessible. Additionally, Barclay adds further analysis of the theme of gift and grace in Paul’s other letters and explores contemporary implications for this new view of grace.

A deeply impressive study by a superb scholar from whom all will learn a great deal. Indeed, future Pauline scholars are now significantly indebted to Barclay for this superabundant scholarly gift.

John M. G. Barclay is Lightfoot Professor of Divinity at Durham University, England. His previous book Paul and the Gift was awarded Book of the Year by Jesus Creed in 2015.

The Messianic Theology of the New Testament

  • Author: Joshua W Jipp
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 480

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

One of the earliest Christian confessions—that Jesus is Messiah and Lord—has long been recognized throughout the New Testament. Joshua Jipp shows that the New Testament is in fact centered around this foundational messianic claim, and each of its primary compositions is a unique creative expansion of this common thread. Having made this argument about the Pauline epistles in his previous book Christ Is King: Paul’s Royal Ideology, Jipp works methodically through the New Testament to show how the authors proclaim Jesus as the incarnate, crucified, and enthroned messiah of God.

In the second section of this book, Jipp moves beyond exegesis toward larger theological questions, such as those of Christology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology, revealing the practical value of reading the Bible with an eye to its messianic vision. The Messianic Theology of the New Testament functions as an excellent introductory text, honoring the vigorous pluralism of the New Testament books while still addressing the obvious question: what makes these twenty-seven different compositions one unified testament?

Joshua W. Jipp is associate professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His previous books include Christ Is King: Paul’s Royal Ideology and Saved by Faith and Hospitality, which won the Academy of Parish Clergy’s Book of the Year award in 2018.

    The book on Messianic Theology touches a little touched subject. Looks worthy. I wish it were sold separately.
