9783161490507: New Testament and Christian Apocrypha: Collected Studies II (Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen Zum Nuen Testament)

This volume of Kleine Schriften reflects Francois Bovon's two major fields of research: Luke-Acts on the one hand, and early Christian Apocrypha on the other. He insists on the ethical and missionary practices of the early Christian communities. The apostle Paul's ethical concern is presented not as an opposition between good and evil, but as a crescendo from the good to the best. The authority of John, the author of the Book of Revelation, is described in a nonhierarchical way as the care of a brother for his brothers and sisters rather than of a father. Women ministry is attested in recently discovered portions of the Acts of Philip. This collection of essays shows also how doctrinal positions were reached in the middle of strong tensions. Such is the witness of the Fragment Oxyrhynchus 840 in favor of a spiritual purification. Francois Bovon is also attentive to the reception of the earliest Christian documents in the Late Antiquity period. As a whole he describes aspects of early Christianity in its variety but also in its unity.

From the Back Cover:

"What we see in these essays is typical of . . . Bovon . . . : meticulous attention to detail, wide-ranging consultation of sources . . . , ever-present awareness of the history of interpretation of biblical texts, and concern for theological engagement. The depth of his involvement with an astonishing range of topics, which in spite of his specialty in the early Christian period can range over the course of three millennia, is awe-inspiring. . . . By circumstances, temperament, and native ability he is one of the few Renaissance-like figures in biblical studies today. . . . Advanced students and scholars alike . . . will be stimulated to approach familiar topics from a new perspective, informed about new discoveries and insightful interpretations of them, and challenged implicitly to go and do likewise."
--Christopher R. Matthews, Review of Biblical Literature

"Bovon carries his readers with him in his voyages of research and discovery, honestly admitting where he finds problems and shortcomings. This is a writer who, wisely, knows that his work is intended to state a case and build up an argument while at the same time spurring others to engage with him and to further the endeavour."
--J. K. Elliott, Journal of Theological Studies

"[A] splendid collection of essays . . . more valuable than most . . . for three reasons. First, several of the essays originally appeared in European journals with limited availability in the English-speaking world. Second, ten of the essays appear in English for the [first] time in this volume. Third, the volume is fully indexed and well edited. . . . Every page in this collection reveals the acumen and originality that has distinguished Bovon's career over the last several decades."
--Thomas E. Phillips, Religious Studies Review

"Bovon provides the interested reader with insightful and illuminating historical-critical analysis of a wide range of canonical and noncanonical texts. The extensive indexes and wealth of foreign-language works cited in the footnotes [provide] students and scholars alike with access to scholarly works often neglected in North America. Bovon deserves emulation in the way he sensitively treats contemporary issues (violence, missions, social and individual ethics, and female leadership) by historically examining the beliefs and behavior of the early Christians."
--Alexander Stewart, Bulletin for Biblical Research
