There will be no physical SBL (Society of Biblical Literature) this year, which means no book booths, which means … we professors all grieve over not seeing the new offerings and bump into friends and foes in the pathways in the exhibit hall.

So, I wrote to some publishers and asked them to give me a short list of their new offerings.

Each day this week I will feature one publisher.

Today, we visit the booth at Baker Academic.

Jeannine K. Brown, The Gospels as Story

Matthew Thiessen: Jesus and The Forces of Death: The Gospels’ Portrayal of Ritual Impurity within First Century Judaism.

Priscilla Pope-Levison, Models of Evangelism.

R.W.L. Moberly, The God of the Old Testament: Encountering the Divine in Christian Scripture.

Jack Levison, An Unconventional God
