“He Inscribed Upon a Stone”: Celebrating the Work of Jim Eisenbraun
Eisenbrauns is a veritable household name for scholars of the Bible, archaeology, and Near Eastern studies. The retirement of Jim and Merna Eisenbraun (the reason for the plural Eisenbrauns) and the transition of the imprint to Pennsylvania State University Press is an opportunity to celebrate and pay tribute. When SBL asked authors, editors, and staff associated with Eisenbrauns if they would contribute to a volume celebrating Jim’s legacy, over one hundred responses resulted in this tribute. The volume is free to download here.

New from SBL Press
Paul and the Resurrected Body: Social Identity and Ethical Practice
Matt O’Reilly makes the case that the social dimension of future bodily resurrection is just as important, if not more so, than individual salvation and resurrection. Through a close reading of key texts in the letters to the Corinthians, Romans, and Philippians, O’Reilly argues that resurrection is integral to Paul’s understanding of Christian social identity. In Paul’s theological reasoning, a believer’s hope for the future depends on being identified as part of the people of God who will be resurrected.
