A Couple of Volumes that Look Pretty Interesting

First,

“Ware’s Synopsis of the Pauline Letters in Greek and English provides students, pastors, and scholars with a powerful tool for comparing the Pauline letters. While there are other Pauline synopses, this is the only one that employs the Greek text with a critical apparatus as well as an English translation. By bringing together groups of related passages, Ware’s synopsis enables readers to see how the Pauline letters treat similar themes. This synopsis, which fills a long-standing need, is destined to become a standard tool for Pauline exegesis.”–Frank J. Matera, Andrews-Kelly-Ryan Professor of Biblical Studies, The Catholic University of America

And second,

“Recent study of the New Testament has demonstrated the crucial role played by scripture in the development of the tradition. In this study of Jesus and scripture, Steve Moyise turns to the most fundamental question of all, How did Jesus himself use it? His lucid discussion not only provides an excellent survey of the topic but also introduces students to the interlocking problems of the reliability of the tradition and the relationships of the Gospels to one another.”–Morna D. Hooker, Lady Margaret’s Professor of Divinity Emerita, University of Cambridge
