Singing God's Psalms - Metrical Psalms and Reflections for Each Sunday in the Church Year (Paperback): Fred R Anderson Singing God's Psalms - Metrical Psalms and Reflections for Each Sunday in the Church Year (Paperback)
Fred R Anderson; Foreword by Walter Brueggemann
R415 R324 Discovery Miles 3 240 Save R91 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Drawing on his decades of experience as a pastor, hymn writer, and hymnal consultant, Fred Anderson here offers pastors and worship leaders a rich treasury of singable psalms - one for each psalm text or canticle appointed in the three-year Revised Common Lectionary. Anderson renders each psalm into metered text, using contemporary, biblical, inclusive language, and suggests appropriate pairings with familiar hymn tunes. Short pastoral reflections on each psalm text provide background on what is being sung - and are also useful for sermon preparation and personal meditation.

The Book of Numbers: A Critique of Genesis (Hardcover, New): Calum Carmichael The Book of Numbers: A Critique of Genesis (Hardcover, New)
Calum Carmichael
R1,074 Discovery Miles 10 740 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this work Calum Carmichael-a legal scholar who applies a literary approach to the study of the Bible-shows how each law and each narrative in Numbers, the least researched book in the Pentateuch, responds to problems arising in narrative incidents in Genesis. The book continues Carmichael's process of demonstrating how every law in the Pentateuch is a response to a problem arising in a biblical narrative, not to an inferred societal situation.

A Critical Theology of Genesis - The Non-Absolute God (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016): Itzhak Benyamini A Critical Theology of Genesis - The Non-Absolute God (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016)
Itzhak Benyamini
R2,167 R1,782 Discovery Miles 17 820 Save R385 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this book Itzhak Benyamini presents an alternative reading of Genesis, a close textual analysis from the story of creation to the binding of Isaac. This reading offers the possibility of a soft relation to God, not one characterized by fear and awe. The volume presents Don-Abraham-Quixote not as a perpetual knight of faith but as a cunning believer in the face of God's demands of him. Benyamini reads Genesis without making concessions to God, asking about Him before He examines the heart of Adam, Noah, Abraham, and the other knights of faith (if they are really that). In this way, the commentary on Genesis becomes a platform for a new type of critical theology. Through this unconventional rereading of the familiar biblical text, the book attempts to extract a different ethic, one that challenges the Kierkegaardian demand of blind faith in an all-knowing moral God and offers in its stead an alternative, everyday ethic. The ethic that Benyamini uncovers is characterized by family continuity and tradition intended to ensure that very axis-familial permanence and resilience in the face of the demanding and capricious law of God and the everyday hardships of life.

Beyond Orality - Biblical Poetry on its Own Terms (Hardcover): Jacqueline Vayntrub Beyond Orality - Biblical Poetry on its Own Terms (Hardcover)
Jacqueline Vayntrub
R2,565 Discovery Miles 25 650 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Central to understanding the prophecy and prayer of the Hebrew Bible are the unspoken assumptions that shaped them-their genres. Modern scholars describe these works as "poetry," but there was no corresponding ancient Hebrew term or concept. Scholars also typically assume it began as "oral literature," a concept based more in evolutionist assumptions than evidence. Is biblical poetry a purely modern fiction, or is there a more fundamental reason why its definition escapes us? Beyond Orality: Biblical Poetry on its Own Terms changes the debate by showing how biblical poetry has worked as a mirror, reflecting each era's own self-image of verbal art. Yet Vayntrub also shows that this problem is rooted in a crucial pattern within the Bible itself: the texts we recognize as "poetry" are framed as powerful and ancient verbal performances, dramatic speeches from the past. The Bible's creators presented what we call poetry in terms of their own image of the ancient and the oral, and understanding their native theories of Hebrew verbal art gives us a new basis to rethink our own.

Although Wolfgang Schneider's Grammatik des biblischen Hebraisch: Ein Lehrbuch serves primarily as an introductory textbook to biblical Hebrew, it makes an invaluable contribution to the text-linguistic study of Hebrew Bible. Schneider's understanding of narrative syntax and discourse linguistics continues to influence such grammarians as Niccacci and Talstra, through whom his work is validated. His discussion of clauses and text syntax remains pertinent to Hebrew students and professors alike. With this English translation, Schneider's work may now make a worldwide contribution to biblical studies by clarifying for the student the contribution of text grammar to the reading of the biblical text.

Unusual Bible Interpretations - Judges (Hardcover): Israel Drazin Unusual Bible Interpretations - Judges (Hardcover)
Israel Drazin
R554 R339 Discovery Miles 3 390 Save R215 (39%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Most people suppose that the book of Judges is filled with tales of pious leaders called judges who performed acts that protected the Israelites and helped form them into a praiseworthy nation. A close reading of the book shows that the early history of Israel was just the opposite. By examining the biblical book of Judges with references to many classical, traditional, as well as modern scholarly sources, Dr. Israel Drazin reveals insights that many readers will consider unusual. His objective analysis of the book confronts challenging questions, such as: What does the story of Deborah reveal about the Bible's attitude to female leadership? Why didn't Jephthah annul his vow? Was Samson's act of martyrdom appropriate? Always open-minded, Dr. Drazin reveals a perspective on Judges that will enlighten and astonish.

This volume (in French) contains the editio princeps of the second part (4Q550-583) of the Aramaic texts from Cave 4 at Qumran which were originally assigned to Pere Jean Starcky (4Q521-578). The first part of the Aramaic texts were published in volume XXXI of the Discoveries in the JudaeanDesert series, while the Hebrew texts were published in volume XXV.
These Aramaic and Hebrew texts include primarily parabiblical and pseudoepigraphical compositions, often named "Apocryphon," "Testament," "Pseudo-," or "Visions." They reflect the interest in biblical themes characteristic of Second Temple period Judaism, and exhibited in many of the Qumran compositions.

The Hebrew book of Job is by all accounts an exquisite piece of literary art that holds its rightful place among the most outstanding compositions in world literature. Yet it is also widely recognized as an immensely difficult text to understand. In elucidating that ancient text, this inaugural Illuminations commentary by C. L. Seow pays close attention to the reception history of Job, including Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Western secular interpretations as expressed in theological, philosophical, and literary writings and in the visual and performing arts. Seow offers a primarily literary-theological interpretation of Job, a new translation, and detailed commentary. Watch the series trailer:

Der Hoheliedkommentar Brunos von Segni steht hermeneutisch weitgehend in der patristischen Tradition, die dem Mitstreiter Gregor VII. durch Beda und vor allem durch Haimo von Auxerre vermittelt wurde. Auch Brunos Hoheliedkommentar ist durchwegs heilsgeschichtlich-ekklesiologisch-pastoral ausgerichtet. Vorgeschaltet ist eine Auslegung der Schlusspartie der Spr che Salomos, das Lob der t chtigen Frau , die hier wie die Hoheliedbraut als (Vor-) Bild f r die Kirche gedeutet wird. Brunos Text ist pointiert-knapp gehalten und wirkt h chst lebendig; seine kirchenpolitischen und pastoraltheologischen Anliegen sind un bersehbar. Formal stellt der Kommentar ein Prosimetrum dar: Der Prosatext ist mit Gedichten teils lehrhaften, teils lyrischen Charakters durchsetzt. Die Einf hrung dieser Studie enth lt historische und hermeneutische Sachinformationen wie auch Ausf hrungen zu den exegetischen und stilistischen Eigenheiten des Textes. Dem lateinischen Text ist synoptisch eine deutsche bersetzung beigegeben. Die textbegleitenden Kommentare f hren Vergleichsstellen an und erl utern das exegetische Vorgehen.

R184 R113 Discovery Miles 1 130 Save R71 (39%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Nearly half the book of Genesis is devoted to the lives of Jacob and his twelve sons, who were important figures in the history of Israel and in the history of the Christian church. The account of their lives takes the term "dysfunctional family" to a new level, but God used this flawed clan as a beautiful canvas to portray His providence, judgment, and mercy. In this study, John MacArthur guides readers through an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with Jacob's first encounter with Rachel, continuing through their son Joseph's captivity as an Egyptian slave, and concluding with the dramatic rescue of Jacob's family. This study includes close-up examinations of Dinah (Jacob's daughter), Judah, Tamar, and Pharaoh's chief butler, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as "The Sovereignty of God" and "Finishing in Faith." The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

This title provides a comprehensive and profound introduction to the literature and history of the Old Testament. Beginning with methods and sources, this Handbook looks at the Biblical text, archaeology, other texts, and iconography. It explores varying exegetical methods, including historical criticism, canonical approach, feminist, social scientific and liberation theology. Methods in archaeology, Hebrew epigraphic and iconography are also covered. The second section is devoted to the history and religious history of Ancient Israel. Introductory matters, such as fundamental terminology and definitions, ethnic identity, ancestors and the dead, geography and time reckoning are explicated before the book moves on to a historical survey from the Iron Age (c. 1200 BCE) to the early Roman period (ending about 63 CE). The heart of the book is a detailed survey of the Hebrew canonical books, section by section and book by book. The discussion for each book includes: biblical presentation and content; problems arising from the history of literary analysis and research; the origin and growth of the writing; the theology; and notes on reception history. This book will provide students with everything they need to study the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.

Western biblical studies have tended to follow either faith-based theological approaches or value-free historical-critical methods. This monograph challenges the two extremes by pursuing the middle path of philosophical hermeneutics. While drawing on Eastern and Western philosophical writings from ancient to modern times, the author proposes original interpretive solutions to a wide range of important biblical texts, including the Akedah, Second Isaiah, the Decalogue, Qohelet, Job, and Jeremiah. Yet, this is not a collection of antiquarian studies. Readers will also gain fresh and stimulating perspectives concerning monotheism, religious faith and identity, suffering and salvation, and modern and postmodern ethics. Finally, in a supplementary essay, the author introduces readers to the history of Old Testament studies in Japan, and he outlines prospects for the future.

The Grammar of Messianism - An Ancient Jewish Political Idiom and Its Users (Hardcover): Matthew V. Novenson The Grammar of Messianism - An Ancient Jewish Political Idiom and Its Users (Hardcover)
Matthew V. Novenson
R1,287 Discovery Miles 12 870 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Messianism is one of the great themes in intellectual history. But for precisely this reason, because it has done so much important ideological work for the people who have written about it, the historical roots of the discourse itself have been obscured from view. What did it mean to talk about "messiahs" in the ancient world, before the idea of messianism became a philosophical juggernaut, dictating the terms for all subsequent discussion of the topic? In this book, Matthew V. Novenson gives a revisionist account of messianism in antiquity. He shows that, for the ancient Jews and Christians who used the term, a messiah was not an article of faith but a manner of speaking. It was a scriptural figure of speech, one among numerous others, useful for thinking kinds of political order: present or future, real or ideal, monarchic or theocratic, dynastic or charismatic, and other variations beside. The early Christians famously seized upon the title "messiah" (in Greek, "Christ") for their founding hero and thus molded the sense of the term in certain ways, but, Novenson shows, this is nothing other than what all ancient messiah texts do, each in its own way. If we hope to understand the ancient texts about messiahs (from Deutero-Isaiah to the Parables of Enoch, from the Qumran Community Rule to the Gospel of John, from the Pseudo-Clementines to Sefer Zerubbabel), then we must learn to think in terms not of a world-historical idea but of a language game, of so many creative reuses of an archaic Israelite idiom. In The Grammar of Messianism, Novenson demonstrates the possibility and the benefit of thinking of messianism in this way.

The Book of Judges (Hardcover): Marc Zvi Brettler The Book of Judges (Hardcover)
Marc Zvi Brettler
R1,887 Discovery Miles 18 870 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days


The Book of Judges has typically been treated either as a historical account of the conquest of Israel and the rise of the monarch, or as an ancient Israelite work of literary fiction. In this new approach, Brettler contends that Judges is essentially a political tract, which argues for the legitimacy of Davidic kingship. He skilfully and accessibly shows the tension between the stories in their original forms, and how they were altered and reused to create a book with a very different meaning. Important reading for all those studying this part of the Bible.
