Hugoye Describes Syriac Churches Encountering Islam: Past Experiences and Future Perspectives as "Fertile Ground for Further Inquiry."

Dr. Robert Moreland, of St. Leo University, writes:

"While this book is certainly of interest to academics who work in Syriac-speaking Christianity, the volume will appeal to anyone working on the intersections of religion and society, especially minority religions in colonial and post-colonial contexts. . . [T]he chapters presented in this volume are valuable contributions to our understanding of the Syriac Church(es) and fertile ground for further inquiry."

Syriac Churches Encountering Islam
ISBN 978-1-61143-001-1, $139.75 (Yours Today for Only $125.78)

The present volume includes the papers of the first PRO ORIENTE Colloquium Syriacum, which took place in Salzburg, Austria and concentrated on the Syriac Churches’ experiences with Islam. The papers in this volume survey the whole history of these two communities from the times of the Four Caliphs through the Umayyad, Abbasid, and Ottoman periods. Topics include the personal status of Christians under Islam, the ecclesiastical response to the rise of Islam, the Indian experience and the present situation.


First Things Praises "YHWH Fights for Them!": The Divine Warrior in the Exodus Narrative, by Charlie Trimm, as "Thorough [and] Workmanlike"

Columnist Peter Leithart writes:

"Most studies of the divine warrior theme in the Old Testament are poetic or comparative. Charlie Trimm argues in “YHWH Fights for Them!” that these studies are too limited; brief poems need the enrichment and complexity of longer narrative treatments. His thorough, workmanlike monograph examines the theme in Exodus 1-15. That passage ends with one of the great divine warrior poems of the Bible, the Song of the Sea, but Trimm shows how that poem is the climax of a long narrative of Yahweh's war."

"YHWH Fights for Them!"
ISBN 978-1-4632-0271-2, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

The divine warrior is an important motif in the Old Testament, leading many to study profitably the motif in its most prominent manifestations in poetic texts. This study builds on that foundation by examining the divine warrior in detail in the exodus narrative to construct a broader picture of the motif in the Old Testament.

Laval théologique et philosophique Recommends Language and Textual History of the Syriac Bible, by Jan Joosten, to New Testament Scholars

Paul-Hubert Poirier praises Joosten's work warmly, writing:

"This collection of work, through its unity, its documentary richness, [and] careful analysis, will be of interest to specialists of the text of the New Testament just as much as Syriacists. Joosten's work, of which this is a representative sample, shed light on the importance of Syriac Biblical versions, and everyone will benefit from the fact that someone could put together this study of the earliest Gospel traditions."

Language and Textual History of the Syriac Bible
ISBN 978-1-61143-891-8, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

The Syriac Bible is a fascinating field to which too little research has been devoted. In the present volume, Jan Joosten gathers a number of pilot studies, published in various journals and collective volumes, shedding light on the Syriac Old Testament, New Testament, and the relation between them. A number of studies advance the claim that the Old Syriac and Peshitta gospels preserve echoes of an Aramaic gospel tradition that gives independent access to the earliest, oral traditions on the life and teaching of Jesus.


"Stephens Gets the Best of E.R. Dodds" According to the International Association for the Study of Dreams

A Dreamtime review of John Stephens' book, The Dreams and Visions of Aelius Aristides, suggests that Stephens successfully overturns "received wisdom":

"At several points Stephens challenges the received wisdom about Aristides, particularly the portrait of classicist E.R. Dodds and his 1951 work The Greeks and the Irrational. Dodds treated Aristides as a “sick soul,” whereas Stephens argues that Aristides was not a world-denying ascetic brooding over the problem of evil, but an otherwise optimistic person who happened to be suffering from various illnesses. Although Dodds was a giant of 20th century scholarship, and although that book in particular was a fascinating study of psychology and ancient religions, I still believe Stephens gets the best of this particular debate."

The Dreams and Visions of Aelius Aristides
ISBN 978-1-4632-0232-3, $95 (Yours Today for Only $85.50)

An analysis of the religious experiences of the Greco-Roman sophist, Aelius Aristides. As a member of the cult of Asclepius, Aristides recorded his nocturnal dreams, waking visions and spiritual healings in a diary entitled the Sacred Tales. A study of this diary sheds light on the spiritual environment of the Roman world in the first and second century CE.
