This study, undertaken by an Anglican priest with a great interest in the ecumenical dialogue with Eastern Orthodoxy, was an early historical attempt to bring the Russian Church to western eyes. Bishop begins with a history of the Russian Orthodox Church before exploring the worship life of the church, including the ornaments and liturgy of their rites. The faith and practice of the church, its hierarchy and the place of the laity are all clearly presented. Following his summary of this venerable tradition, Bishop adds his own personal impressions and observations about openness to foreign relations and communication with the Church. To ease the understanding of western readers, he includes a statement about missions in the Russian Church, the central portion of the Canon of the Mass, and notes about the Council of Florence, 1438-39.

George Bernard Hamilton Bishop (d. 1918) was vicar of Cardington and an active member of the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association before he was killed in action during World War I. This publication is his only book.

Syntactic Studies in Targum Aramaic

A Text-Linguistic Reading of 1 Samuel
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3910-7
How can one distinguish between narrative, which records a sequence of events, and a narrator's comment on these events, in the form of notes, clarifications, and retellings? Syntax of Targumic Aramaic: A Text-Linguistic Reading of 1 Samuel applies the insights of Functional Sentence Perspective and Text Linguistics to Targum 1 Samuel. Through this analysis, Condrea answers key questions about Aramaic syntax and recovers the voice and contributions of the text's narrator.

Jehoiachin and his Oracle

A Jeremianic Scribal Framework for the End of the Deuteronomistic History
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4043-1
King Jehoiachin, the last Judahite king exiled to Babylon, became the focus of conflicting hopes and fears about a revived Davidic kingship after the exile. As Sensenig demonstrates, this conflict stemmed from a drastic oracle from Jeremiah that seemed to categorically reject Jehoiachin, while the canon records that he not only survived but thrived in exile.
