The Oral Ethos of the Early Church by Joanna Dewey



This was interesting. I suspect in ten years, it will seem like an "early effort," but performance criticism is nonetheless provocative. And her attention to female disciples was very well done.

The Genesis of Secrecy by Frank Kermode



This is a classic in Markan studies, but I was a little underwhelmed by it.

This Strange and Sacred Scripture by Matthew Richard Schlimm



This is an excellent introduction to the thorny issues raised by a serious study of the Old Testament (violence, sexism, etc.). Schlimm addresses the non-specialist in a gentle but responsible way and provides a variety of useful ways for thinking through these issues. Recommended.
