There are always a number of new books that come out every month which look interesting. However, as one on a limited budget I rarely rush out and purchase them. But two books have especially caught my attention and I will be purchasing them in the very near future (and hopefully finding the time to read and review them as well). Fitzmyers’ 1 Corinthians commentary looks excellent and should be a nice compliment to Thiselton’s commentary. The other book that has piqued my interest is Ramsay McMullen’s The Second Church: Popular Christianity A.D. 200-400. I am eager to examine the non-literary evidence he has compiled and how it compares to the literary evidence that describes the period. I also find the title interesting. Are we still using A.D. in published works? I thought we had officially changed to the B.C.E – C.E. system.
