1.0 out of 5 stars Amateur, unreliable, poxy., 16 Feb. 2011
I bought this on the basis of the positive reviews below, however, the item looks like it has been made as part of a school project. The surface was all scratched (a manufacturing error as it was well packed), the buttons and commands resemble programming code rather than easy to use. It's flimsy, sound is mediocre and what's more, mine was faulty (I presume!) as the pre-set radio stations and alarm clock reset itself each night.

Returned.

Petrine Controversies in Early Christianity: Attitudes Towards Peter in Christian Writings for the First Two Centuries (Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament. 2. Reihe)
Petrine Controversies in Early Christianity: Attitudes Towards Peter in Christian Writings for the First Two Centuries (Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament. 2. Reihe)
by Terence V. Smith
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Synthesis, 15 Dec. 2005
I bought this book to use a resource on some postgraduate research on the 'Apocalypse of Peter', and this book is sitting proudly on my shelf ready to assist in all things Petrine.
It breaks the mould of most Petrine books by being neutral, and unlike most pro-Catholic or pro-protestant books offers a synthesis of current(ish) study in the area.
Its easy to read, informative and the writer has the wonderful writing style of a PhD student (it was his doctoral thesis), which is blissfully unblemished from the harsh rigours of academic life, resulting in a book that is not unnecessarily complicated to massage other writer's intellectual vanity.
Highly recommended.


Tours of Hell: Apocalyptic Form in Jewish and Christian Literature
Tours of Hell: Apocalyptic Form in Jewish and Christian Literature
by Martha Himmelfarb
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for all things apocalyptic!, 15 Dec. 2005
This book really is a gem, and one of the very few I would pay publisher's price for.
It is concise yet encylcopaedic, covering a wide range of apocalyptic material. Himmelfarb trawls through some horrifying yet entertaining material from Early Christianity, synthesising literary themes as she goes.
In the limited bibliography of this theological genre, Himmelfarb excellent (and with diagrams!) illustrates the themes of many apocalypses, but what made this book special for me, was the 'family tree' that she creates, and the literary relationships she exposes, e.g. 'Apocalypse of Paul//Apocalypse of Peter'.
I would highly commend this book as one that is vital to all research on this matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best theological books I have bought, 9 Dec. 2005
This book was recommended to me by my lecturer when I was an undergraduate, and I have never looked back! It is a truly excellent book that is to be highly recommended. The book is study, packed with information and excellently presented.
It is a must for all areas that involve Christology or early Christianity and our understanding of it. It covers a wide range of topics from both Jewish and Greek points of view, and deals with some more contemporary theological issues such as wisdom, or sofia.
I found it particularly useful for christological titles such as 'Son of Man', 'Son of God', 'Prophet' etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for A-Level, forget it for University, 9 Dec. 2005
I bought this book in my first year of my undergraduate studies in Theology, and although its very pretty, some great pictures and diagrams, it really lacks some scholarly emphasis and material. Having said that, thats what it is designed to do.
It is excellent in unfolding some of the issues, but as the title suggests, it really is an introduction. Some of the illustrations used to feel more reminiscent of a school book, so its really no good for university or serious bible study, but recommended for A-Level or beginners in the topic.
