The New Testament Monographs series offers fresh and attractive studies, many of them with a special emphasis on the world of the New Testament and with new research into the original texts.
This is a scholarly series where close biblical scholarship meets modern world concerns.
The SCIBS Series aims to give voice to a range of research in interdisciplinary biblical studies. The series will include both monographs and collected volumes on topics such as embodiment; violence; reception of biblical texts and themes in art, popular culture and literature; rape culture; queer biblical studies; and other fields that engage the Bible and related texts from an interdisciplinary perspective. The series particularly welcomes submissions that fit within the range of research themes currently active at SCIBS: the Shiloh Project; Embodied Religion; Gothic Bible; and Migration and the Bible. We also invite contributions from scholars in adjacent fields whose research fits within this remit.
To propose a monograph or collected volume, please contact series editor Dr Meredith J.C. Warren (email@example.com).
SPP is not seeking to reinvent the biblical commentary, but it is obvious that a commentary for today (and for a decade or more from now) should look rather different from most commentaries currently in existence. Perhaps the most significant trend in biblical studies of the last 50 years has been the gradual incursion of interdisciplinary dimensions into the scope of the field. Without prescribing which interdisciplinary fields a commentator should be in conversation with, we would expect that all authors would bring their own skills and expertise to relating current movements of thought, whether literary, sociological, historical, or interpretation history, to the biblical text.
The Critical Commentary should be directed to biblical scholars and students without undue technicality, and should aim to explain (and critique as appropriate) the biblical text in clear English.
A number of volumes in this series have already been published since 2006, and SPP has revivified the series with new volumes on biblical books not already treated as well as new readings of biblical books already treated. The aim of the series is to present compact literary readings of the biblical books, unencumbered by the paraphernalia of traditional criticism and alert to the impact of literary studies on biblical interpretation. Each contributor to the series approaches their text from their own personal literary position. The approach in the Readings series is to present a coherent paragraph by paragraph commentary on the biblical book, which could be recommended as the first commentary on the book a student or interested reader might pick up. The target word length is 200 pp. (80,000 words).
This series of commentaries (with a set of monographs, in parallel) is designed to bring to the fore the significance of trauma in the content and in the creation of biblical texts. Liz Boase and Megan Warner as sub-series editors will be assisting the Sheffield Phoenix Board in considering proposals.
