Top 10 List: Books of Note In the Zondervan Catalog

Jesse Hillman posted a link to the new Zondervan Academic Resources Catalog and after a quick perusal I saw that there were many books that I was interested in.  Aside from that, there are pictures of both Jesse Hillman and Chris Fann in the catalog, and it’s always nice to put a face with a name.  Anyway, here are the top 10 books I’m interested in:

  1. The New Testament in Antiquity
  2. Theology of the New Testament: A Canonical and Synthetic Approach
  3. Three Views on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament
  4. Renewal Theology
  5. The Atonement Debate
  6. An Old Testament Theology: A Canonical and Thematic Approach
  7. Survey of the Old Testament, 3rd ed.
  8. Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cults, Sects, and World Religions
  9. Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics, 2nd ed.
  10. Hebrew for the Rest of Us

So if Jesse or Chris happen to be reading and want to furnish me with some review books for next year, I’d be more than happy to accept. ;)

  1. You already know that I’m very interested in #3, and that I’m due to post my review of #9 any day now; the sight of #1, however, knocked my socks off. Also very appealing to me are the two forthcoming books by Gary Burge, and Campbell’s text on Greek verbal aspect. And how about that announced Biblical theology of the NT series?!

  2. Esteban: Yes, #1 looks excellent! It was first brought to my attention by Derek last week.

    I think that the book on verbal aspect looks very interesting, but obviously it’s over my head right now. I immediately thought of Aubrey though when I saw it.

    And yes, after reading the descriptions of the two Burge books, they look very good. I originally passed over them in my initial perusal. The BTNT series looks ok, but I don’t know how much I’d like it. I’m sure that Bock on Luke-Acts will be great though, and I’ve come to appreciate Köstenberger’s contribution to Johanine studies, but I’m still not sold on the whole set. We’ll see what happens with it.

  3. Man, for a minute I thought you had Schreiner on there. (Which would be strange for you, not for me.)

    I’d love to hear what you think of Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics if you ever get it. It’s on my list. And I know this is worth at least one tear from our beloved and quirky Orthodox Puerto Rican cantor translator who is formerly Dutch Reformed and soon to be Michigannder. (How’s that for strange?)

  4. Jeff: If I’m not mistaken, Baker Academic publishes Schreiner’s NT Theology, and you’re right, that would be strange for me! And it’s Esteban’s high praise for the first edition of Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics that has me interested in this one (although I already know that he has some problems with it).

  5. Jeff> Yes, the fact that you have Kaiser and Silva “on your list” warms the cockles of my heart!

    As I noted above, I’m due to post my review of the 2nd edition any day now, unless I end up dying buried under a mountain of books in the valiant attempt to pack them.

  6. Shaun: I suppose you could, and I’d hope that someone would be generous enough to bless you with 2 of each so you can send me the extras! ;)

    Esteban: Hurry up and post it already!

  7. Dudes and Dudettes! (Ninja Tutles Anyone?) I got referenced on Nick Norelli’s blog! Sweetness!
    The NT in Antiquity is “the present” for me this Christmas!

    Y’all how every year you pick that one present that you’d most want to have right the heck now? The one that makes you count down the days to Dec 25 like a child waiting for his new Megazord? (Power Rangers and Turtles in the same comment…I’ve outdone myself)

    Anyways thats the one for me.

  8. Derek: A reference on my blog and 35¢ will get you a phone call! ;) And I understand “the” present very well. Out of all the books up there, you see what got #1. It might be “the” present for me as well.

  9. Nick in the UK no 1 is published in Febuary 2009 at £25 i know you`ve said before it `s not worth getting books from the UK but i thought this may be of interest to those wanting to get the book early
