  • When In Romans

    $20.00

    When reading the book of Romans, we often focus on the quotable passages, making brief stopovers and not staying long enough to grasp some of the big ideas it contains. Instead of raiding Paul’s most famous letter for a passage here or a theme there, leading New Testament scholar Beverly Roberts Gaventa invites us to linger in Romans. She asks that we stay with the letter long enough to see how Romans reframes our tidy categories and dramatically enlarges our sense of the gospel.

    Containing profound insights written in accessible prose and illuminating references to contemporary culture, this engaging book explores the cosmic dimensions of the gospel that we read about in Paul’s letter. Gaventa focuses on four key issues in Romans–salvation, identity, ethics, and community–that are crucial both for the first century and for our own. As she helps us navigate the book of Romans, she shows that the gospel is far larger, wilder, and more unsettling than we generally imagine it to be.

  • Child In The Bible

    $43.50

    In this volume nineteen biblical scholars collaborate to provide an informed and focused treatment of biblical perspectives on children and childhood. Looking at the Bible through the “lens” of the child exposes new aspects of biblical texts and themes. Some of the authors focus on selected biblical texts – Genesis, Proverbs, Mark, and more – while others examine such biblical themes as training and disciplining, children and the image of God, the metaphor of Israel as a child, and so on. In discussing a vast array of themes and questions, the chapters also invite readers to reconsider the roles that children can or should play in religious communities today.

  • Our Mother Saint Paul

    $33.00

    In his epistles, Paul at various points uses maternal imagery to talk about his apostolic labors, sometimes actually referring to himself as a mother. For example, Paul writes that he must behave “like a nurse caring for her own children.” Later, he writes, he “is in labor again” and must continue to nurse his fellow Christians with milk. These images, though known among earlier generations of Christians, today remain largely both unacknowledged and unexplored in thinking about Paul and his work.

    In Our Mother Saint Paul, Beverly Gaventa retrieves these images, explores their significance for understanding apostolic ministry, and demonstrates how they point beyond their original contexts and offer unique perspectives for understanding Paul’s thought-as well as the larger, cosmic understanding of the gospel.

  • Ending Of Mark And The Ends Of God

    $33.00

    Among his many contributions to New Testament studies, Donald Juel was perhaps best known for his treatment of the ending of Mark’s Gospel. He saw the open-endedness of Mark as powerfully unsettling for the reader who desires to tame and predict God’s actions. In this series of essays, edited by Beverly Roberts Gaventa and Patrick Miller, theologians begin with Juel’s own work and reflect on the “unsettling” in the context of their own work.

  • Blessed One : Protestant Perspectives On Mary

    $30.00

    Despite her prominence in the Christian narrative, Mary has largely been neglected within the Protestant church. Recent interest in such issues as feminism, spirituality, parenting, and ecumenism, however, force a serious reexamination of Mary’s place in Protestant faith. In this book, widely respected Protestant scholars seek to answer three basic questions: Who is Mary? How does Mary’s story intersect with contemporary life? and What does Mary teach us about God? This thoughtful and highly accessible book will be of great interest to all engaged in the debates of the contemporary church, Protestant and Roman Catholics alike.
