It was a little late last night when I finally got the mail which is why I’m posting this today. I got a package from Mohr Siebeck, which was a wonderful thing to see. They are based in Tübingen, Germany, so this is my first international shipment of books. Let me tell you, those Germans definitely know how to send books in the mail. The box was wrapped with plastic cords and the most expensive book was individually wrapped inside. These are probably the best shape I have ever had books arrive in when sent through the mail. Anyway, here are the books:
The Jewish World around the New Testament by Richard Bauckham
Ancient Jewish and Christian Perceptions of Crucifixion by David Chapman
The Purpose of Mark’s Gospel by Adam Winn
I can’t wait to dive into these books. They should each be incredibly interesting. I’m not sure which I will begin with, but I am open to suggestions.
