The Christian Century
The years from the Historical Jesus to the death of Ignatius witnessed the emergence of a remarkable new phenomenon, in which the humanistic trend within Judaism gradually worked itself free to become a world religion. The monographs in this series focus on several highlights within this development, starting from Jesus himself, as he was reported from the top of Mount Zion in Jerusalem by his earliest chronicler, John Mark, to the martyrdom of one of the movement's later established authority figures, Ignatius of Antioch. These books approach their subjects with philological scrupulousness and doctrinal objectivity, to give the first methodologically sound and ideologically open account of early Christianity.
Titles in the series as presently envisioned are listed below. There is as yet no precise publication schedule, and the Project is still open to criticism of these plans, or to suggestions for other titles in the series. With that understanding, the present plans comprise these titles:
- In the Beginning: John the Baptist
- The Gospels of Mark: Rethinking Jesus
- Xristos: The Legacy of the Messiah
- Zeal for the Faith: The Apostle Paul
- The Post-Apostolic Age
- Luke the Healer
- Kingdom of Heaven: The Vision of Matthew
- Johannine Perspectives
- Turning toward Rome: The End of the Century
Detailed descriptions are available at the above pages, which also include an order link for books whose publication has been announced.
