SBL Books, Part 2
I was finally able to pick up the rest of my books the other day from the NET Bible office. Here’s the cool stuff.
I’ve decided to refresh my Hebrew, so I got the OT Hebrew vocabulary CD and cards from Zondervan. I think I like the Zondervan cards a little better than the Vis-Ed ones. They are a little taller and are keyed to a few grammars.
Other language stuff as well. I got the very short Aramaic Grammar by Rosenthal (Harrassowitz). I audited a semester class in Aramaic at DTS, so having this shorter grammar (I used Greenspahn in school) will hopefully go well for me. I also got Winer’s grammar of NT Greek. It has been republished by Wipf and Stock. I’m really liking this publisher. Last year I got several good out of print language books.
For old testament, I got the following:
- Exile and Restoration by Peter R. Ackroyd (Westminster).
- Transformations in Ancient Judaism by Neusner (Hendrickson).
For studies in early Christianity I got two books:
- Second-Century Christianity: A Collection of Fragments, by Robert Grant (WJK).
- Lost Scriptures by Bart Ehrman (Oxford).
I wanted Ehrman’s Lost Christianities, or whatever it is called, more than that one. But, it had already been sold by the time I went to buy it. I waited until the last day with Oxford, since they were going to 50% that morning. Alas, I missed the book.
That completed my purchases. I must say that I am very pleased.
