Buy this book together with Abortion and the Apostolate by Matthew Mitchell
This book is an excellent resource for students, scholars, pastors and other people interested in biblical studies for their daily work at the computer. This book treats general interest subjects like hardware and networks, operating systems, word processors and others. The main focus is on subjects for biblical scholars like Unicode, bible software and websites. Each chapter ends up with a list of URLs for further information about the subject. An online up-to-date link list is available. It can be used as textbook as well as a reference work.+This book argues that it is the rejection of Paul’s claims to be an apostle in the same sense as the other apostles that ultimately underlies his “mission to the Gentiles.” This argument is advanced through a careful analysis of Paul’s references to his “conversion” in Galatians 1:15-17 and 1 Corinthians 15:8, paying particular attention to Paul’s evocative use of the language of abortion. The contextualization of this curious self-description in 1 Corinthians 15:8 draws upon a growing body of work concerning an area of ancient life that continues to fascinate and perplex moderns; the exposure of unwanted infants.Save $40.42

Psychology of Prophecy in Early Christianity by Alan Humm
Dr. Humm analyses early Christian prophetic activity seeking to understand the psychological states behind it. A system of categories is suggested based on the external appearances and subjective claims of modern phenomena. Assuming that the ancients followed the same patterns, most instances described in early Christian literature are reviewed and categorized.

The Archaeology of Cult in Middle Bronze Age Canaan by Jill Katz
What was Canaanite religion like during the Middle Bronze Age, at the time of the biblical patriarchs? This volume presents a theoretical model for identifying ritual behavior in the archaeological record, providing a test case using the rich material culture and structures that have been unearthed at the biblical city of Gerar (Tel Haror, Israel).

Fatima, Daughter of Muhammad by Christopher Clohessy
The only child of Muhammad to survive him, Fatima was from early times taken up by Shî’a Islam, for whose adherents she is the virgin mother, the heavenly intercessor with untold power before God’s throne, and the grieving mother of al-Husayn, the Shi’a's most important martyr. During her life she was impoverished and weak, neglected, marginalized, and divested of justice: but her reward in heaven comprises incalculable riches, all those in heaven will bow their heads to her, and her company will be the angels and the friends of God. Here, for the first time, her story is told.

The Holy Spirit in the Syrian Baptismal Tradition by Sebastian Brock
A sensitive and evocative treatment of the role of the Holy Spirit in worship. With a keen awareness of the tradition of Syrian Christianity, Brock begins his exploration with the role of the Holy Spirit in the Syriac Bible. A striking aspect of this tradition is the imagery used for the Spirit, including: compassionate mother, fire, olive oil, as well as the more common image of dove. Brock also summarizes commentaries and other literature on the baptismal rite, touching on Syriac literature and works translated from the Greek.
