Lamentations from the Author: Gina Hens-Piazza. Though the five poems of Lamentations undoubtedly refer to the Babylonian siege and destruction of Jerusalem in 587 BCE, the multiple voices that narrate unspeakable suffering and labor to make sense of the surrounding horror do so at women’s expense. In the opening chapters, a prevailing metaphor of Jerusalem as a woman (Woman Zion) portrays a weeping widow, abandoned and alone, who soon becomes the target of blame for the downfall of the city and its inhabitants. Vague sexual improprieties craft the basis of her sinfulness, seemingly to justify her immense suffering as punishment. The damning effect of such a metaphor finds company in subsequent accounts of women, young girls, and mothers—all victims of the destruction recorded therein. But this feminist interpretation of Lamentations does not stop at merely documenting the case against women; it also demonstrates how such texts can serve as sources of strength by lifting up portraits of courageous resistance amid the rubble of misogynist landscapes.

Miracles from the Author: Craig S. Keener. Most modern prejudice against biblical miracle reports depends on David Hume's argument that uniform human experience precluded miracles. Yet current research shows that human experience is far from uniform. In fact, hundreds of millions of people today claim to have experienced miracles. New Testament scholar Craig Keener argues that it is time to rethink Hume's argument in light of the contemporary evidence available to us. This wide-ranging and meticulously researched two-volume study presents the most thorough current defense of the credibility of the miracle reports in the Gospels and Acts. Drawing on claims from a range of global cultures and taking a multidisciplinary approach to the topic, Keener suggests that many miracle accounts throughout history and from contemporary times are best explained as genuine divine acts, lending credence to the biblical miracle reports.

Zion In Den Psalmen from the Author: Corinna Körting. English summary: Zion is a fundamental topos for the theology of the Psalms, which, unlike Jerusalem, equally fills and shatters the dimensions of space and time. On the horizontal axis, it proves to be the center of a sacred topography, and it provides Israel and the world with a sense of direction and a home. On the vertical axis, it is able to erase the distance between the earthly and the heavenly presence of God. Corinna Korting analyzes the so-called Zion psalms as well as the references to Zion in the Psalter, some of which seem to be unspectacular. She comes to the conclusion that it is not a complete system with its Old Testament history of tradition which had such a decisive influence on the Psalms and the Psalter but rather Zion as an oscillating center of the progressive development of theology. German description: Zion ist ein fur die Psalmentheologie grundlegender Topos, der, anders als Jerusalem, raum-zeitliche Dimensionen gleichermassen fullt und sprengt. Auf der horizontalen Achse erweist er sich als Zentrum einer sakralen Topographie, bietet Israel und der Welt Orientierung und Heimat. Auf der vertikalen Achse vermag dieser Topos die spannungsvolle Distanz von irdischer und himmlischer Gegenwart Gottes aufzuheben. Die temporale Achse zeugt von der Dauerhaftigkeit Zions. Verankert in mythischer Vorzeit besteht Zion in Ewigkeit. An diesen Eigenschaften Zions partizipieren der einzelne Beter, Volk und Konig. Einem magnetischen Kraftefeld gleich zieht Zion Motive und Traditionen an, um sie zu ordnen und auf diese Weise immer wieder neu und anders zu schaffen. Durch gezielte Positionierung des Topos Zion in den Texten werden Bezuge zwischen einzelnen Psalmen und Psalmengruppen hergestellt, auch uber Sammlungen hinaus. So werden in und mit Zion Texte und Theologien zusammengebracht. Corinna Korting analysiert die sogenannten Zionspsalmen sowie die wenig beachteten uber den Psalter verteilten einzelnen Erwahnungen von Zion. Sie kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass kein geschlossenes System, das seine alttestamentliche Traditionsgeschichte hat, sondern Zion als oszillierendes Zentrum fortschreitender Theologiebildung Psalmen und Psalter pragt.
