2 CORINTHIANS

$7.95

In 2 Corinthians: Power in Weakness , we discover an early church struggling with problems such as disunity, rancor, moral failure problems that continue to plague Christians today. Paul addresses these problems, but he also shares with us in 2 Corinthians a core, seemingly contradictory, message of the Christian faith: God's power is best felt in our weaknesses.

ACCOMPANIED BY A BELIEVING WIFE

product image
$29.95

What light does the New Testament shed on the practice of celibacy for the sake of the kingdom? In his newest work, renowned Scripture scholar Raymond F. Collins turns his attention to the question, which, of course, has important implications for the church in our own day. Though the answer is not a simple one, and it does not necessarily translate automatically into clear contemporary ecclesial policy, it still serves as an important foundation for discussion.

Collins gives careful consideration of the methodology to be used in approaching the question and to important aspects of the sociocultural context of first-century Palestine, within which the New Testament took form. He then explores what Jesus said to the disciples, several disciples' own statuses as married men, and Paul's teaching and personal example on marriage.

Raymond Collins has served the church through his thoughtful and scholarly exegetical work for decades. This latest work of his will long be counted among his best.

ACTS OF THE APOSTLES GOOD NEWS FOR ALL PEOPLE

product image
$12.99

In The Acts of the Apostles: Good News for All People, Father Anderson describes how the Book of Acts recounts the origins of the Church and its growth-from the persecution of the followers of Jesus through the spread of the faith. The ministry of Peter and other early missionaries begins the study, with a major portion of the book following the missionary journeys of Saint Paul. Throughout, Anderson explains the dominant role the Holy Spirit plays in the spread of Christianity. He addresses the rapid and dramatic changes in the years following the ascension of Jesus and the political and religious challenges his disciples endured. Through this study of Acts, we will see that the mission of the Twelve has become the mission of many, as we are called to gift the world with the message of Jesus through our lives today.

AFTER THE NEW TESTAMENT

$32.95

The remarkable diversity of Christianity during the formative years before the Council of Nicea has become a plain, even natural, "fact" for most ancient historians. Until now, however, there has been no sourcebook of primary texts that reveals the many varieties of Christian beliefs, practices, ethics, experiences, confrontations, and self-understandings. To help readers recognize and experience the rich diversity of the early Christian movement, After the New Testament provides a wide range of texts from the second and third centuries, both "orthodox" and "heterodox," including such works as the Apostolic Fathers, the writings of Nag Hammadi, early pseudepigrapha, martyrologies, anti-Jewish tractates, heresiologies, canon lists, church orders, liturgical texts, and theological treatises. Rather than providing only fragments of texts, this collection prints large excerpts--entire documents wherever possible--organized under social and historical rubrics.
This unique reader's concise and informative introductions and clear and up-to-date English translations make it ideal for courses on the New Testament, Christian Origins, Early Church History, or Late Antiquity. It will also be of interest to anyone--student, scholar, and general reader alike--interested in the entire range of early Christian literature from the period after the New Testament up to the writings of the so-called father of church history, Eusebius.

APOCALYPSE

$14.95

For those searching for a way to demystify the often puzzling book of Revelation or for those seeking a splendid pathway into the Apocalypse, this commentary is an extraordinary aid to grasping the central visions-and to being grasped by them. Albrecht Durer's woodcuts are incorporated together with an introduction that describes both the Seer of Patmos and the artist of Nuremberg and gives a very brief overview of various ways of reading these texts (fundamentalist, mainline, liberation). It is followed by a commentary on the book of Revelation accompanied by and keyed to the woodcuts.

APOCALYPSE A CATHOLIC PERSPECTIVE

$16.95

"Like most people who are lovers of God's word, for a long time, I was very uncomfortable with the Book of Revelation. But I found that there was a way out of the confusion, a way to hear what God was saying, a means of interpreting the book in the way that God intended"
from the Introduction
In this engaging and responsible volume, Scripture scholar Stephen Doyle uses a three-pronged approach to deciphering the complicated and often-misunderstood Book of Revelationone that is accessible to a new Bible reader, yet useful to the serious student. Following the directives of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on Divine Revelation, he helps the reader to: examine the text in light of its original language, understand what the human author meant to communicate, and determine the literary form used and its influence on the meaning of the text.
Each chapter begins with a passage of the Book of Revelation, followed by an explanation that searches for the main theme in that passage, and concludes with a reflection that casts light on the meaning of the text for today. A thorough bibliography provides resources for further study."

APOCALYPSE RECALLED

$23.00

The Book of Revelation has often been read as a set of endtime scenarios, glorifying a vengeful God and predicting and even fomenting apocalyptic violence. Yet it continues to exert a profound hold on the dreams and visions, fears and nightmares of our contemporary, first-world, secular culture. Harry Maier insists that, however much one is skeptical of its misuse or awed by its influence, Revelation still harbors a powerful and important message for Christians today. His fascinating book, erudite yet also intensely personal, asks us to recall Apocalypse through a careful exegesis of Revelation's deeper literary currents against the backdrop of imperial Rome. He explores the narrrator's literary identity, the plot or journey of the text, its many ocular and aural dimensions, and the ambiguous temporal dimensions of its "past vision of a future time." Revelation, he believes, "offers an inversion of the violent and militaristic ideals of a first-century Roman Empire by offering a highly ironical political parody of imperial politics and insisting the true power belongs to the hero of the Apocalypse, the Slain Lamb." In the end, Apocalypse Recalled seeks to free the imprisoned John of Patmos and employ his massively influential and controversial text to awaken a sleeping, sidelined, and culturally assimilated church to new imperatives of discipleship. Key Features A responsible study that rescues the Book of Revelation from fundamentalist interpretations A call to understand and emulate the early church's relationship to political power A creative hypothesis about the literary character of the book
