The text of the Epistle to the Hebrews, with critical and theological notes, by the Bishop of Durham, whose edition of the New Testament (with Fenton Hort) is one of the three foundations of the now standard Nestle-Aland edition. An extensive introduction covers the title, history and purpose of the epistle, with a note on it as a response to the Epistle of Barnabas - which held, unlike Hebrews, that there was only one Covenant (that of Christianity) and the Jews had rejected it long since, whereas Hebrews holds that the Law was a salutory and historic discipline. Extensive critical and historical notes essay each chapter, and a concluding essay on relations with the Old Testament.

Intellectual Currents and the Practice of Engagement

Ottoman and Algerian Writers in a Francophone Milieu, 1890-1914
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4239-8
The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw a great increase in the use of the printed word and the press by non-European actors to express and disseminate ideas and to participate in the intellectual life of both their home societies and a wider international context. This book examines the French-language writings of Ottoman and Algerian writers between 1890 and 1914.

Justinian's Indecision

How Social Networks Shaped Imperial Policy
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4227-5
Since the time of Eduard Schwartz, scholars have tended to treat ecclesiastical policy under the influence of Justinian as inconsistent and even capricious. This book argues that such an image of Justinian, although seeming to provide a coherent narrative concerning the emperor’s character, falls apart when the details are scrutinized.

Living the Quran with Joy and Purpose

Selections on Tawhid from Said Nursi's Epistles of Light
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4269-5
The current volume is an annotated translation of selections from a noteworthy Muslim theologian Said Nursi (1876-1960) on the Quranic theme of oneness of God (tawhid). Given the scarcity of theological themes in Islamic literature in English as well as the lack of studies on Said Nursi, who wrote in Ottoman Turkish, the book is an important contribution to the field. It offers a contemporary peek into the view that faith in God could be profoundly meaningful and fulfilling spiritual path.

Jacob of Sarug's Homilies on Paul

On the Conversion of the Apostle Paul and a Second Homily on Paul the Apostle
Translation and Introduction by Raju Parakkott; Edited with Notes and Introduction by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4273-2
Recognized as a saint by both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christians alike, Jacob of Sarug (d. 521) produced many narrative poems that have rarely been translated into English. Of his reported 760 metrical homilies, only about half survive. Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug’s homilies, this volume contains two of his homilies on Paul. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references. The volume is one of the fascicles of Gorgias Press’s Complete Homilies of Saint Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain all of Jacob’s surviving sermons.
