I ran across several good reviews of Eisenbrauns books this month. I’ve included an excerpt from two of them below. Use coupon code NR18 for 30% off. If you happen across a review of an Eisenbrauns book, please let me know about it via email!

Rounding out this month’s Ancient News is a pair of PSU Press books recently released or soon to release that you might find interesting. One is the second installment in the Inventing Christianity series.

The Press is still taking precautions related to the novel corona virus, so your orders and responses to inquiries might take longer than normal. Learn more here.

Enjoy a good book at a social distance from others and stay healthy!

You Shall Know That I Am Yahweh

You Shall Know That I Am Yahweh

An Innerbiblical Interpretation of Ezekiel’s Recognition Formula

John F. Evans

“In a nutshell, this book argues persuasively that the literary-theological intent of the RF [recognition formula] in Ezekiel is based on the RF in Exodus and is primarily used to reinforce Yahweh’s role in the restoration of the nation. . . . Evans’s timely research presents a solid, systematic, and comprehensive analysis of the RFs in Ezekiel. Biblical scholars and Ezekiel scholars in particular will find this book useful for examining biblical formulas, inner-biblical exegesis, and evaluating Ezekiel’s theological message.”—Tova Ganzel, Bar-Ilan University in Review of Biblical Literature, May 2020

“I Will Walk Among You”

“I Will Walk Among You”

The Rhetorical Function of Allusion to Genesis 1–3 in the Book of Leviticus

G. Geoffrey Harper

“A conclusione di queste osservazioni ritengo che la ricerca di Harper sia di notevole interesse perché ha scandagliato una grande quantità di materiale letterario.”—Giovanni Deiana, in Biblica 101 (2020): 132–34

[“At the conclusion of these observations I believe that Harper’s research is of considerable interest because it has fathomed a great deal of literary material.”]
