British Nation Is Our Nation$39.99Add to cart
The central focus of the book is the role that the British, Australian, Canadian,
South African, and New Zealand (BACSANZ) Baptist press played in the formation of national, imperial and denominational identity during the South African War (often called the Boer War). BACSANZ Baptist imperialism was a phenomenon that transcended regional identities which provided a global community and identity for nascent, often isolated, Baptist communities in the colonies. Baptist evangelical purpose was also inextricably fused
to popular imperialism. Nevertheless, BACSANZ Baptist imperialism was contextualized and shaped by domestic factors, so much so that imperialism was a particular form of nationalism in both the metropole and peripheries.
Lost Gospel Of Judas$17.50Add to cart
With the discovery of the Gospel of Judas came an outpouring of hyperbolic language, both negative and positive. Alongside the overwhelming opinions of historians and scholars was the quiet bewilderment of people who simply weren’t sure what to think, confusion that wasn’t helped by vast media attention. In The Lost Gospel of Judas, Stanley Porter and Gordon Heath attempt to set the record straight. They begin with a look at the initial responses to the announcement of the gospel’s existence, then provide a brief history of Judas himself as seen in the New Testament and in church history, and of Gnostic philosophy. Further sections consider other recent textual finds and examine the discovery, content, and authenticity of the gospel. They also delve into the relationship this new gospel has with the New Testament canon and contemplate the “Lucky Winner” theory of canonical history. The Lost Gospel of Judas sifts through all the evidence, presenting the results with more than enough scholarship to be respected and enough clarity to be easily understood.
