New Books

This weeks has been rather unpleasant. Working 14 hours on Wed, 12 on Thurs, and spending last night (mostly awake throughout) and today dealing with a tooth infection. But now I have drugs, so the pain should be manageable until the infection heals. However, other than the post the other day about the CSNTM press release, there has been one more bright spot on this otherwise dismal and boring week.

My area here in Garland has now moved up in the world. We have our own Half Price Books. Woohoo! They opened on Thursday. I wasn’t able to get in line in the morning to be one of the first in due to that whole work thing, but I got to spend about 20 minutes there (not enough!) Thurs night. I don’t know which of these are good, but I guess I’ll find out when I get around to reading them.

  1. Christianity and Paganism, 350-750: The Conversion of Western Europe, edited by J. N. Hillgarth.
  2. Aristotle: De Anima, edited by Sir David Ross. This was the most expensive volume, but was worth it. Oxford Press, Greek text with notes kinda thing.
  3. Between Two Worlds: Structures of Earliest Christianity, Christoph Markschies
  4. Whose Bible Is It?: A Short History of the Scriptures by Jaroslav Pelikan
  5. Christology of the Later Fathers, ed. Edward R. Hardy

Outside of these volumes, I saw nothing of interest in the arena of biblical studies and church history in my quick survey. I think I will have to head back there in the next couple of days, assuming my consumption of Vicodin doesn’t keep me on my rear all weekend.
