Finally, we have 7 new papers available for sale this month:
_____ $1.50 C. Van Dam, The Meaning of Bishgagah. Published in 1989, this essay is the study of what the “sin of inadvertency” in Leviticus actually was. Van Dam shows that this is a “sin of wandering astray, or of being led astray.” This material is foundational for the work that we at Biblical Horizons have done in Leviticus; BUT, unless you can read Hebrew words, you will find it difficult, though not impossible, to read this paper.
_____ $3.00 Richard M. Davidson, The Genesis Flood Narrative: Crucial Issues in the Current Debate. This is the same Richard Davidson who wrote Typology in Scripture. Published in 2004, this is the best gathering of proofs for a universal, not a local, flood. Since local floods are all the rage in evangelical circles these days, especially on the Baalogos website, we thought to make this essay more widely available. It is absolutely devastating to any notion of a local flood.
_____ $4.00 R. W. Landis, The Meaning and Use of Selah. Published in 1864 during the Civil War and virtually forgotten as a result, this is a good presentation of the view that in the Psalms “selah” means to repeat the first phrase of the psalm as a refrain. Those interested in restoring psalmody in our worship will want this essay. We offer it not as the last word on the subject, but as an idea that may well be correct and is worth considering at length.
_____ $6.00 James B. Jordan, Babylon and the Babel Project. An upgraded version of essays published in Studies in the Revelation a decade ago. The Babel project arises when pagans who usually believe in many limited gods become converted to some kind of perverse monotheism, and therefore decide to conquer the world. This essay is a history of this theme from Genesis to the Babylon of Revelation.
_____ $9.00 James B. Jordan, Special Studies in the Book of Revelation. Eighteen separate studies originally published in Studies in the Revelation, including The Angels of Revelation, The Earthquakes of Revelation, The Seven Thunders, The Gates of Nehemiah’s Holy City, Comparative Chronology of the Destruction of Jerusalem in Jeremiah and in Revelation, etc.
_____ $6.00 James B. Jordan, The Beasts of Revelation. Again from Studies in the Revelation, sixteen essays dealing with beasts in the Bible, starting in Genesis 3, and moving to the beasts of Revelation: the Abyss Beast, the Sea Beast, the Scarlet Beast, the Beast-Image, the Red Dragon, the Number of the Beast (not what you think!), etc.
_____ $15.00 James B. Jordan, Jesus’ First Eschatological Discourse: Matthew 23-25. A very complete Biblical-theological exposition of all three chapters, revised from material originally published in Studies in the Revelation.
