How Do We Want the Past to Be? by Maria Gabriella Micale

List Price: $99.00 (today yours for only $89.10)

ISBN 978-1-4632-0544-7

How Do We Want the Past to Be? The question is not purely rhetoric: rather, it points out the importance of how archaeologists deal with the interpretation and visualization of the past that they excavate and study. The essays in this book offer a contribution to the current debate on archaeology and the contemporary methodological approaches to the study of ancient Near Eastern architecture.


"Creative, Inviting, and Methodologically Sound." RBL Lavishes High Praise on Scribal Wit by David Marcus

Christopher Dost, in a recent review for RBL, offers high praise for the scholarship and writing of Scribal Wit. In his words:

"Scribal Wit is both creative and methodologically sound. It draws from masoretic studies, textual criticism, Hebrew grammar, and Jewish Aramaic language and literature to paint a detailed picture of the sophistication of the Tiberian Masoretes and their Masorah. The book’s tone is inviting, and the arcane subject matter is explained concisely and clearly without needless scholarly jargon so that even nonexperts can benefit from this work.The book is highly recommended to students and scholars alike who have at least some foundation in Masorah."

Scribal Wit
ISBN 978-1-61143-904-5, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

This book presents a detailed analysis of the Aramaic mnemonics, those short witty sentences written in Aramaic as memory aids in the margins of one of the oldest extant biblical Hebrew manuscripts, the Leningrad Codex (1008 CE). The material is presented in clear, user-friendly charts. Each mnemonic is set alongside the Hebrew verses it represents. This book demonstrates the ingenuity of the Masoretes in their grand endeavor to preserve the text of the Hebrew Bible precisely in the form that it had reached them.

Icons of the Heavenly Merchant by Andrew Hayes

List Price: $196.30 (today yours for only $176.67)

ISBN 978-1-4632-0414-3

A detailed study of a cycle of fourth-century liturgical poems, in Syriac, dedicated to a great pioneer of the Syriac ascetical tradition. Hayes analyzes its various portraits of the saint, shaded differently by Ephrem and his later imitators.

The Sub-Loco Notes in the Former Prophets of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia by Christopher Dost

List Price: $169.00 (today yours for only $152.10)

ISBN 978-1-4632-0531-7

In BHS’s Masoretic apparatus, certain Masorah parva notes are marked “sub loco” in order to refer the reader to the corresponding commentary that was to be found in the third volume of Massorah Gedolah. Due to Weil’s passing, however, this commentary was never realized. This volume builds on Mynatt’s 1994 analysis and classification of the Pentateuch’s 297 sub loco notes by incorporating the Aleppo and Cairo Codices. Dost evaluates all 414 sub loco notes in the corpus of the Former Prophets, and evaluates Weil’s contribution by comparing Weil's revision of the Leningrad Codex’s Masorah against the Masorah of the Aleppo Codex.

Daniel According to the Syriac Peshitta Version with English Translation by George A. Kiraz

List Price: $150.00 (today yours for only $135.00)

ISBN 978-1-4632-0546-1

This volume is part of a series of English translations of the Syriac Peshitta along with the Syriac text carried out by an international team of scholars.


"Fascinating Reading" - RBL Recommends Studies on Magic and Divination in the Biblical World

Craig Evans, of Acadia Divinity School, recommends Studies on Magic and Divination in the Biblical World for anyone interested in exploring the role of magic in ancient Israel, where magical practices continued to exist even though they had been forbidden. In his words:

"The underlying impulse behind the meetings and the papers in the book is inspired by the laws against magic and divination expressed in Deut 18:9-22. Although magic was forbidden by law, it was still practiced in one form or another in the biblical period and beyond. It is within this social context of inconsistency and conflict that magic in the biblical world should be viewed. These essays make for fascinating reading. . . The editors and contributors are to be commended."

Studies on Magic and Divination in the Biblical World
ISBN 978-1-61143-869-7, $150 (Yours Today for Only $135)

A selection of essays on magic and divination in relation to the biblical world, including Mesopotamian demonology, Akkadian literary influences, exorcism, healing, calendars, astrology, bibliomancy, dreams, ritual magic, priestly divination, prophecy, magic in the Christian Apocrypha and the New Testament, magic in rabbinic literature, and Jewish Aramaic magic bowls.


First Came Marriage Praised in RBL as "Evocative" and "Original"

Joshua Schwartz, in Review of Biblical Literature, described Marks' book as yielding important insights for the study of late antique Judaism. In his own words:

"It is impossible to do justice to the scope and content of this book in a relatively short review. There is wealth of information and new and fascinating readings on much of it. The presentation of the material is evocative and original and provides important insights into the study of the ancient Jewish marriage and ritual. . . [Marks] skillfully navigates between ritual and history, and her work is an important contribution not only to the study of weddings and betrothals in ancient Jewish society and the world of the rabbis but also to the study of ancient Judaism in general."

First Came Marriage
ISBN 978-1-59333-585-4, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

Ritual and historical perspectives each provide only a partial view of early Jewish weddings. Combining these approaches allows for a new look at practices rejected or highlighted by early rabbis and their successors, and First Came Marriage: The Rabbinic Appropriation of Early Jewish Wedding Ritual investigates the process by which early Jews married and the various moves they used to minimize, elaborate or codify these practices.
