Notre Dame Press is currently running a sale on some old/overstock books– FIVE BUCKS A BOOK!! Needless to say, I happily took advantage of the deal and the books arrived today.
- The Bible in Greek Christian Antiquity, ed. and tr., by Paul M. Blowers (probably the book I’m most interested in reading)
- The Arians of the Fourth Century, by John Henry Newman (not the most up-to-date account of the Arian Controversy, but an important one for its time and, hey, I got it for $5 so why not)
- Gregory the Great: A Symposium, ed. by John C. Cavadini (always wanted to learn a little more about this important Western Father)
- Reading in Christian Communities: Essays on Interpretation in the Early Church, ed by Charles A. Bobertz and David Brakke (never can have too many books on Early Christian hermeneutics!)
- The Key to the Brescia Casket: Typology and the Early Christian Imagination, by Catherine Brown (I know very little about early Christian art, so this may be a good place to start)
- Plato’s Timaeus as Cultural Icon, ed by Gretchen J. Reydams-Schils (an interesting collection of essays on the reception and interpretation of Plato’s famous dialogue on the origins of the cosmos)
- The Greek Praise of Poverty: Origins of Ancient Cynicism, by William D. Desmond (I know very little of Cynicism, so this might be helpful)
