Using a thematic approach, Dr. David deSilva gives a brief introduction and summary of these largely unknown and unappreciated books. In addition the book gives an overview to the social and cultural context of the world of the Apocrypha and early Christianity. After surveying the Apocryphas relevance and impact on Christian practices and spiritual formation, the book highlights the Apocryphas impact on Jesus, the New Testament, and the formation of the Early Churchs doctrines and theology.
Core Biblical Studies fulfill the need for brief, substantive, yet highly accessible introductions to key subjects and themes in biblical studies. In the shifting tides of biblical interpretation, these books are designed to help students locate relevant meanings in conversation with the text. As a first step toward substantive and subsequent learning, the series draws on the best scholarship in order to provide foundational concepts and contextualized information on a broad scope of issues, methods, perspectives, and trends.
Dr. David A. deSilva attended Princeton University, Princeton Theological Seminary and earned his Ph.D. in Religion at Emory University.

His most recent books include Honor, Patronage, Kinship, and Purity: Unlocking New Testament Culture (IVP); Perseverance in Gratitude: A Socio-rhetorical Commentary on the Epistle "to the Hebrews" (Eerdmans); New Testament Themes (Chalice); 20/30--Afterlife and Praying With John Wesley (Discipleship Resources).
