The Lost World of the Torah Book Description:

To modern eyes, what we call the biblical law, or Torah, seems either odd beyond comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively reprehensible (executing children). Using a consistent methodology to look at the Torah through the lens of the ancient Near East, Walton and Walton offer a restorative understanding that will have dramatic effects in interpreting the text and in discerning the significance of the Torah for today.

The Lost World of Scripture Book Description:

2014 Readers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Scripture/Hermeneutics) From John H. Walton, author of the bestselling Lost World of Genesis One, and D. Brent Sandy, author of Plowshares and Pruning Hooks, comes a detailed look at the origins of scriptural authority in ancient oral cultures and how they inform our understanding of the Old and New Testaments today. Stemming from questions about scriptural inerrancy, inspiration and oral transmission of ideas, The Lost World of Scripture examines the process by which the Bible has come to be what it is today. From the reasons why specific words were used to convey certain ideas to how oral tradition impacted the transmission of biblical texts, the authors seek to uncover how these issues might affect our current doctrine on the authority of Scripture. "In this book we are exploring ways God chose to reveal his word in light of discoveries about ancient literary culture," write Walton and Sandy. "Our specific objective is to understand better how both the Old and New Testaments were spoken, written and passed on, especially with an eye to possible implications for the Bible s inspiration and authority."

Jewish Remnants in Spain Book Description:

Beginning with a brief summary of Spanish Jewry, the work considers twenty-five pre-Expulsion Jewish communities. The few remnants of the transcendent history of the Jews in Spain can be considered prophetic of what was to transpire in twentieth-century Europe. The institutionalized legal process, which led to the Holy Office of the Inquisition and the Edict of Expulsion in 1492, carried out a plan to exterminate the Jewish people. Jewish Remnants in Spain may serve as a guidebook for tourists, especially Jewish tourists. The 183 in situ illustrations included are the author's original work.
