Paperback - 342pp

Justification by Faith: A Matter of Death and Life
Gerhard O. Forde
Sigler Press  0962364258     1991
Paperback - 103pp

This fresh appropriation of the confessional witness contributes not only to an enhanced understanding of Reformation teachings, but also to an ecumenical dialogue that is zeroing in more closely on the catholic provenance and current vitality of the Augsburg Confession.

Life of Jesus Critically Examined
David F. Strauss
Sigler Press  0-9623642-6-6     1994
Paperback - 816pp

Few books are revolutionary in their impact, but Strauss' Life of Jesus Critically Examined is surely one of them.  When first published, it caused a sensation, and cost him his career as a theologian, because it seemed to make solid historical knowledge of Jesus impossible.  Consequently, in one way or another all subsequent "Lives of Jesus" are attempts, acknowledged or not to confirm, correct, or refute Strauss' analysis of the Gospel evidence.

Life of Jesus, The
Friedrich Schleiermacher
Sigler Press  1-888961-04-X     1997
Paperback - 542pp

"Schleiermacher's Life of Jesus holds a special place among the major milestones in the long quest for the historical Jesus"
B. A. Gerrish

Along with the lectures themselves, this book contains a critical introduction and valuable annotations in which the editor relates Schleiermacher's thought to his 19th century context and to present theological discussion.

F. Edward Cranz
Sigler Press  1-888961-01-5     1997
Paperbck - 210pp

"... Cranz offers much more than a monograph on the themes justice, law, and society in Luther's thought.  Indeed, he has constructed a major developmental analysis of the structure of Luther's theology."
Scott Hendrix

Martin: God's Court Jester: Luther in Retrospect
Eric W. Gritsch
Sigler Press  0-9623642-1-5     1991
Paperback - 289pp

"Gritsch has provided us with a full-scale, one-volume biography of Luther.  The work is meticulously documented and the bibliography ... will alone warrant the price of the book."
Roland H. Bainton





Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity
Walter Bauer
Sigler Press  0-9623-6427-4     1996
Paperback - 352pp

"Bauer's Orthodoxy and Heresy has established itself as a classic refutation of the 'myth' that 'in the beginning' orthodoxy was there first and heresy was a deviation from the norm.   Whatever one thinks of the thesis, one cannot bypass Bauer on early heresy any more than one can bypass Bultmann on Form Criticism or Harnack on the development of dogma.   Today, it remains a good introduction to Christianity at the end of the first and the beginning of the second century."
Gerald Christianson

Paul and Rabbinic Judaism: Some Rabbinic Elements in Pauline Theology
W. D. Davies
Sigler Press  1-888961-06-6     1998
Paperback - 456pp
Sigler Press  1-888961-07-4     1998
Cloth-Bound - 456pp

"For two hundred years modern New Testament scholars presented Paul in theological opposition to Rabbinic Judaism.  Their claims were based on their ignorance of rabbinic literature.   A true scholar of Rabbinic Judaism as well as Paul, W. D. Davies presents an extraordinarily original argument in Paul and Rabbinic Judaism that has revolutionalized the field.  He demonstrates affinities and influences between Paul and the rabbis that will forever change the way we understand the origins of Christianity.   Since this book the New Testament can never be read in the same way again."

Paul and the Thessalonians: The Philosophic Tradition of Pastoral Care
Abraham J. Malherbe
Sigler Press 1-888961-13-9    2000
Paperback - 124 pp

Malherbe's book is a fascinating attempt to bridge the gap between New Testament scholarship and the discipline of pastoral care.  As Malherbe unpacks Paul's motives and techniques in addressing the first century church at Thessalonica, the reader gains insight into the foundation, care, and feeling of religious communities . . . The volume is a gold mine of insight into the problems of establishing and nurturing a Christian community.  As an expert in both the New Testament and the sociology of the Roman world, Malherbe has succeeded in shedding fresh light on the issues and tactics involved in Paul's writing of 1 Thessalonians.
John Paulien

Perspectives on Paul
Ernst Kasemann
Sigler Press  1-888961-00-7      1996
Paper - 184pp

"... In these pieces, his theological penetration of Paul's thought enables him to expose the pertinence of the Apostle's thought and to assess as well the consequences of alternative construals of Paul. .... The work of every series student of Paul's theology can be challenged and enriched by these perceptive essays."
Leander E. Keck

Richard L. Thulin

Paperback - 249pp
Sigler Press  09623642-4-X     1991
Cloth-Bound - 249pp

"... Stendahl shows that the author of this early Christian gospel is heavily indebted to a school tradition, shared by both Jews and Christians, in which Greek traditions of texts from the Hebrew Bible were carefully revised and interpreted."

Richard Pervo

Martin Dibelius
Sigler Press  1-888961-10-4     1999
Paperback - 240pp

Dibelius' "... analysis of the summaries and speeches in Acts are classic and point to a way of reading Acts that has now become standard.  With Cadbury and Dupont, Dibelius is required reading for any serious student of Acts."
Luke T. Johnson
