.@Baylor_Press and the Library of Early Christology Series
I stumbled across a new series published by Baylor University Press over the summer while continuing research on Hebrews 1. The folks at Baylor University Press, led by Carey Newman, have joined with Mohr Siebeck, Brill, and Fortress to offer North American Reprints of sources that reflect "essential readings" on the early Christology debates in biblical studies to form the Library of Early Christology.
I have used a few of these already and was worried about how to use this reprint version when I have the older print versions documented. For example, I have used Charles Gieschen's Angelomorphic Christology, originally published with Brill. Gratefully and most helpfully, Baylor University Press has maintained the same page pagination and the LEC truly is a reprint service. I have found this to be the case in the other books in the series too.
Formerly expensive books by European publishing houses are now affordable to individual scholars through this American publishing house!
The following is taken from the inside of each book:
Forty years ago, Larry Hurtado set out on a quest to undo the pervasive influence of Bousset's Kyrios Christos in "history of religions" discussions regarding early Christian belief, specifically its Christology. Over the course of his career, he drew various compatriots to the cause and so formed a "new history of religions school." This series is a collaborative effort between Carey Newman, April DeConick, David Capes, and Larry Hurtado to bring together representative works of that "school," with a focus on the study of early Christology and its historic, Judaic antecedents. Most of these are titles originally published by other publishers as part of a limited-run series. Baylor University Press has reached out to friends at Mohr Siebeck, Brill, and Fortress to secure North American print rights, and so bring these works to a new and wider audience. This series will be offered as an "essential reading" set with special appeal to seminary/religion students. We look forward to adding additional volumes to this library in the years ahead.
