The Hermeneutics of Christological Psalmody in Paul

by Matthew Scott

By reexamining the quotation of psalms in Paul, this book offers a fresh interpretation of the New Testament's reception of the Old Testament. Richard Hays's influential Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul astutely identified the rhetorical device of metalepsis, or echo, as central to the study of Pauline hermeneutics. Hays's Paul was in sympathetic dialogue with the voice of Scripture, but Matthew Scott now challenges this assumption with close readings of echoed psalms voiced by David and Christ. Paul's use of metalepsis in Romans and 2 Corinthians reveals him to be a provocative, even polemical, reader who appropriates the words of David for a Christological purpose. Scott also illustrates how Christ succeeds David as the premier psalmist in Paul and considers whether, in doing so, Christ acts as inheritor or iconoclast.

The Hermetic Millennia (Count to the Eschaton Sequence, Book 2)

by John C. Wright

[from inside flaps] "The astonishing future that began in Count to a Trillion continues to unfold: Menelaus Illation Montrose--gunslinger, idealist, and posthuman genius--has gone into cryosuspension following the discovery that, in eight thousand years, a powerful alien intelligence will reach Earth to assess humanity's value as slaves.

Hermetica: The Greek Corpus Hermeticum and the Latin Asclepius in a new English translation, with notes and introduction

by Brian P. Copenhaver

The Hermetica are a body of theological-philosophical texts written in late antiquity, but long believed to be much older. Their supposed author, Hermes Trismegistus, was thought to be a contemporary of Moses, and the Hermetic philosophy was regarded as an ancient theology, parallel to the received wisdom of the Bible. This first English translation based on reliable texts, together with Brian P. Copenhaver's comprehensive introduction, provide an indispensable resource to scholars in ancient philosophy and religion, early Christianity, Renaissance literature, and history, the history of science, and the occultist tradition in which the Hermetica have become canonical texts.

Leora's webbed hand has always marked her as different. Orphaned and outcast in her stepmother's household, she keeps the hand hidden for fear of being sent to the Institute along with other "defectives." Her hand sets her apart, but it also allows her to draw pictures with haunting power. When Leora peers past the locked gates of her village, she feels her life might be different. But it isn't until she dares to free a baby birmba, a creature she's been taught to fear, that her life begins to change. For it is this act of kindness that sets in motion an unforgettable adventure, a quest for family and belonging, that takes Leora into the forbidden Outside.
