Professor of New Testament History and Interpretation, University of Chicago
Arrangements are made for the following volumes, and the publishers will, on request, send notice of the issue of each volume as it appears and each descriptive circular sent out later; such requests for information should state whether address is permanent or not: --
THE HISTORY OF THE TEXTUAL CRITICISM OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
Prof. MARVIN R. VINCENT, Professor of New Testament Exegesis, Union Theological Seminary. [Now ready.
Professor Vincent's contributions to the study of the New Testament rank him among the first American exegetes. His most recent publication is |A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Epistles to the Philippians and to Philemon| (International Critical Commentary), which was preceded by a |Students' New Testament Handbook,| |Word Studies in the New Testament,| and others.
THE HISTORY OF THE HIGHER CRITICISM OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
Prof. HENRY S. NASH, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Cambridge Divinity School. [Now ready.
Of Professor Nash's |Genesis of the Social Conscience,| The Outlook said: |The results of Professor Nash's ripe thought are presented in a luminous, compact, and often epigrammatic style. The treatment is at once masterful and helpful, and the book ought to be a quickening influence of the highest kind; it surely will establish the fame of its author as a profound thinker, one from whom we have a right to expect future inspiration of a kindred sort.|
INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOKS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
Prof. B. WISNER BACON, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Yale University. [Now ready.
Professor Bacon's works in the field of Old Testament criticism include |The Triple Tradition of Exodus,| and |The Genesis of Genesis,| a study of the documentary sources of the books of Moses. In the field of New Testament study he has published a number of brilliant papers, the most recent of which is |The Autobiography of Jesus,| in the American Journal of Theology.
THE HISTORY OF NEW TESTAMENT TIMES IN PALESTINE
Prof. SHAILER MATHEWS, Professor of New Testament History and Interpretation, The University of Chicago. [Now ready.
The Congregationalist says of Prof. Shailer Mathews's recent work, |The Social Teaching of Jesus|: |Re-reading deepens the impression that the author is scholarly, devout, awake to all modern thought, and yet conservative and pre-eminently sane. If, after reading the chapters dealing with Jesus' attitude toward man, society, the family, the state, and wealth, the reader will not agree with us in this opinion, we greatly err as prophets.|
THE LIFE OF PAUL
Prof. RUSH RHEES, President of the University of Rochester.
Professor Rhees is well known from his series of |Inductive Lessons| contributed to the Sunday School Times. His |Outline of the Life of Paul,| privately printed, has had a flattering reception from New Testament scholars.
THE HISTORY OF THE APOSTOLIC AGE
Dr. C. W. VOTAW, Instructor in New Testament Literature, The University of Chicago.
Of Dr. Votaw's |Inductive Study of the Founding of the Christian Church,| Modern Church, Edinburgh, says: |No fuller analysis of the later books of the New Testament could be desired, and no better programme could be offered for their study, than that afforded in the scheme of fifty lessons on the Founding of the Christian Church, by Clyde W. Votaw. It is well adapted alike for practical and more scholarly students of the Bible.|
THE TEACHING OF JESUS
Prof. GEORGE B. STEVENS, Professor of Systematic Theology, Yale University. [Now ready.
Professor Stevens's volumes upon |The Johannine Theology,| |The Pauline Theology,| as well as his recent volume on |The Theology of the New Testament,| have made him probably the most prominent writer on biblical theology in America. His new volume will be among the most important of his works.
THE BIBLICAL THEOLOGY OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
Prof. E. P. GOULD, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Protestant Episcopal Divinity School, Philadelphia. [Now ready.
Professor Gould's Commentaries on the Gospel of Mark (in the International Critical Commentary) and the Epistles to the Corinthians (in the American Commentary) are critical and exegetical attempts to supply those elements which are lacking in existing works of the same general aim and scope.
THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE UNTIL EUSEBIUS
Prof. J. W. PLATNER, Professor of Early Church History, Harvard University.
Professor Platner's work will not only treat the writings of the early Christian writers, but will also treat of the history of the New Testament Canon.
