This study reframes and reorients the study of 2 Enoch, moving beyond debates about Christian or Jewish authorship and considering the work in the context of eclectic and erudite cultures in late antiquity, particularly Syria. The study compares the work with the Parables of Enoch and then with a variety of writings associated with late antique Syrian theology, demonstrating the distinctively eclectic character of 2 Enoch. It offers new paradigms for research into the pseudepigrapha.
An Intertextual Reading of the Gospel of Matthew
Although the Gospel of Matthew emphasizes Jesus as the son of David, no one has systematically investigated how 1-2 Samuel influence Matthew's portrayal of Jesus as the son of David. This work addresses that lacuna and shows how the sustained use of 1-2 Samuel in Matthew evokes the themes of mercy and righteousness as the hallmarks of a proper Davidic shepherd. The book's systematic intertextual and narrative approach offers another way to understand Matthew’s Christology and portrayal of the kingdom of heaven. It helps the reader appreciate the justice-focused nature of Jesus’ rule and its religious and political implications.
Thomistic Concepts in the Moral Thought of Franciscus Junius (1545–1602)
This extended study of Thomistic concepts in the work of Franciscus Junius (1545–1602) is the first English monograph on Junius’s theology in more than 40 years, and the first analysis of his use of Thomistic moral concepts. On a broad level, this project investigates the reception of Thomistic ideas in the early modern Reformed tradition. On a narrow level, this study contributes to an examination of Junius’s moral theology itself.
Series Editors: and
The New History of the Sermon series publishes current scholarship on the theory and practice of preaching. The first six volumes are edited collections focusing on the Christian sermon from the patristic era through the nineteenth century. Starting with Volume 7, the scope has expanded in three ways. First, the inclusion of faith traditions such as Judaism and Islam as well as New Religious Movements (NRMs). Second, the inclusion of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Third, the addition of other forms of scholarship such as monographs and critical editions of primary texts.

The Series Editors, Keith Francis (email) and Robert Ellison (email), welcome proposals from clergy, researchers in homiletics and related disciplines, as well as established and emerging scholars in communication studies, rhetoric, theology, history, sociology, and related fields.
Deuteronomy and the inscribed texts depicted within it are often called “books.” Moreover, its treatment of writing has earned it a prominent place in historical accounts of the religion of ancient Israel and Judah. Neither Deuteronomy nor its text-artifacts, however, are books in any conventional sense of the term. This interdisciplinary study reorients the analysis of Deuteronomic textuality around the materiality, visuality, and rhetoric of ancient rather than modern media. It argues that the Deuteronomic composition adapts the media aesthetics of ancient treaty tablets and monumental inscriptions to a story that is itself transformed into an artifact of the past.
