From a contemplative guide to the Song of Songs, to an examination of the Holy Spirit in the Old and New Testaments, the SPCK Biblical Studies Collection Upgrade gathers fresh insights that help you dig deeper into Scripture.
N.T. Wright provides a passionate case for putting the Psalms back at the center of Christian prayer and worship with his guide to praying the Psalms. Margaret Barker examines how temple tradition forms the background to John’s Gospel—highlighting how Jesus’ debates with the Jews centered on the great difference between the world of the second temple and the world of the first temple from which Christianity emerged. Jenni Williams investigates key narratives involving women in the Bible, showing how even so-called “texts of terror” have something valuable to teach women and men today. Graeme Watson presents a contemporary mystical reading of the Song of Songs, with reference to some later Christian poetry—including John Donne, George Herbert, and R.S. Thomas. And rounding off the collection, in A Biblical Theology of the Holy Spirit, an international team of scholars contribute to a comprehensive exploration of the role and work of the Holy Spirit, as witnessed in both the Old and New Testaments.
