Within that time, it has received very little scholarly attention. This new edition provides a fresh, conservative transcription based on two new image sets.

Nearly a century has passed since Henry A. Sanders first published his editio princeps of the Washington Manuscript of the Epistles of Paul (Codex I or GA 016). Within that time, it has received very little scholarly attention. This new edition provides a fresh, conservative transcription based on two new image sets. It additionally provides comprehensive lists of variants between Codex I, Nestle-Aland 28, and Robinson Pierpont (a text that is representative of the Byzantine text of the Greek New Testament). The new edition also provides valuable data surrounding the manuscript’s provenance, character, scribal habits, textual affiliation, and substantive variants. Several corrections to Sanders are offered, and the new transcription shows the effects of nearly a century of decay upon the manuscript. This work seeks both to update Sanders and to provide valuable data that will make the text of Codex I more readily accessible for future inquiry.

REVIEWS

"The work involved in analyzing Codex I was clearly difficult given the severe damage of the manuscript; yet, Soderquist and Wayment have nevertheless produced an edition that offers clarity and insight for anyone interested in knowing more about the manuscript’s background and contents.”

-- Dustin M. Rigsby, TC 25 (2020): 65-7.

"Overall, this volume is an important piece of careful textual scholarship for those interested in early Christian manuscript traditions, scribal habits, the text of the Pauline corpus, and late ancient manuscript production. For those with an interest in these areas, I heartily recommend it."
-- Garrick V. Allen, TC 26 (2021): 215-6.

Apocalypticism and the Didache’s Two Ways
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4025-7

The argument includes essential critical evaluation of the apocalyptic genre and assesses the apocalyptic features in ancient Two Ways texts.

Fâṭima, Daughter of Muhammad (second edition - paperback)

Second Edition
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3939-8
The only child of Muhammad to survive him, Fâṭima 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.
