Two Recent Books on Messianism

I thought I'd draw attention to two books that have just come out dealing with the topic of messianic hopes and expectations in Judaism and Christianity.

Markus Bockmuehl and James Carleton Paget, eds., Redemption and Resistance: The Messianic Hopes of Jews and Christians in Antiquity (London: T&T Clark, 2007).

Magnus Zetterholm, ed., The Messiah: In Early Judaism and Christianity (Minneaplis: Fortress, 2007).

Thanks for alerting us to these new books. The volume edited by Bockmuehl and Paget especially looks fantastic! Its really nice to see something that also includes the Letter of James in its treatment. Too bad it's so expensive, but the Amazon Online Reader is great for a sneak peak!
