The 9-volume Eerdmans Jewish and Christian Studies Collection will be shipped a week from today, so this is your opportunity to get this excellent resource at a great price. All nine of the books included in this collection are excellent, but I want to point out two in particular:
This collection of scholarly essays was borne out of a high-profile symposium on the topic of “Atonement” held at the University of St Andrews in 2018, when N. T. Wright still held a professorship there (before moving down to Oxford recently). Contributors to the volume, who also presented papers at the symposium, include such heavy hitters as T. J. Lang, Martha Himmelfarb, Carol A. Newsom, Deborah W. Rooke, and of course N. T. Wright himself.
Speculate all you wish about what Jesus’s life was like day-to-day, or get as close enough to touch, smell, and see the gritty details of the ancient world in which he walked, talked, and ate. The author, Jodi Magness, is a prolific scholar of archaeology, orientalism, and religion, and has participated in dozens of excavations in Israel and Greece during her career. She’s an authority on the ancient world at the time of Jesus, and her research and insights will bring you as close to the ancient dust of Palestine than any movie or docu-drama ever could.
