4 Allen, Pauline & Majella Franzmann, & Rick Strelan (Eds. ) “I SOWED FRUITS INTO HEARTS” (ODES SOL. 17: 13) Festschrift for Professor Michael Lattke
St Pauls Publications 2008 0975213865 / 9780975213865 Paperback Fine with no dust jacket 
The title of this wide-ranging collection of essays in German and English summarises the scholarly work of Professor Michael Lattke across two hemispheres. Offered to him on the occasion of his retirement from the University of Queensland, this volume reflects the breadth of erudition for which he has acquired his international reputation. The Odes of Solomon, which figure largely in Professor Lattke’s research, are well represented here, and so too is the Gospel of John, which was the subject of his early research. However, the tributes of his colleagues and former students in this book range further — to other New Testament writings, Intertestamental works, Nag Hammadi, Gnostic, and Syriac studies, and the field of Patristics. ; Early Christian Studies 12; 250 pages

This short biography of John Chrysostom, a priest of Antioch, who became bishop of Constantinople in 398 CE, is written with the intention of introducing to the non-specialist reader John, his life and his times. The insights into Chrysostom’s theology, the classical Greek traditions upon which John draws and the ongoing effect of the person and his writings, that the author offers from his own research do much to enrich this brief account. The events of John’s life, set in the cultural and social context of the time, are narrated in a vivid style that is easy to read. ; Early Christian Studies 8; 169 pages
