  • Daniel : A Commentary

    $76.00

    The book of Daniel is a literary rich and complex story known for its apocalyptic style. Written in both Hebrew and Aramaic, the book begins with stories of Daniel and three Jewish young men Hananiah (Shadrach), Mishael (Meshach), and Azariah (Abednego) who are exiles among the remnant from Judea in Babylon in sixth century b.c.e. It ends with Daniel’s visions and dreams about the Jewish community that offer comfort and encouragement as they endure persecution and hope for deliverance into God’s kingdom.

    Newsom’s commentary offers a fresh study of Daniel in its historical context. Newsom further analyzes Daniel from literary and theological perspectives. With her expert commentary, Newsom’s study will be the definitive commentary on Daniel for many years to come.

  • Book Of Exodus

    $83.00

    In a pioneer approach to commentary-writing, Dr. Childs gives an entirely original treatment of the book of Exodus. He first explores the text in all its forms. Then he goes beyond the text to consider later exegesis, Jewish & Christian; the use of Exodus passages in the NT; the later traditions of exegesis; and, finally, more theological reflections.

  • Jonah

    $50.00

    Few parts of the Bible have captured the imagination of individuals in the way that the book of Jonah has. James Lim- burg examines this well known book, keeping several questions in mind: How did the story originate? What is its place in the Bible? How did the New Testament understand the story? How has the story been understood in Judaism and Islam? What might it mean for people today? And what does it have to say about God, about the human condition, and even about God and nature? In reviewing the book, Limburg gives special atten tion to the many contributions of artists, musicians, painters, and sculptors who, he says, may have been the best interpreters of Jonah. He also keeps in mind the literary dimension of the texts and takes great care to follow the divisions of the book as they were defined by Jewish scribal tradition.
