Practicing Intertextuality cover


This is a quick post with some follow-up posts to come.

I just looked over the indices of Practicing Intertextuality. They are done and submitted. The book is off to press. PTL! 

Practicing Intertextuality is a collection of essays on how rival religious-philosophical groups in the Mediterranean region of the early imperial Roman Empire interacted with one another. It also explores how early Christianity not only engaged with these rival philosophical and religious groups in ancient antiquity but also with its own sacred texts and traditions. 

There are 17 essays edited by myself and B.J. Oropeza. Megan Herrold Sinchi, my TA and currently Associate Pastor of Edgebrook Covenant Church, did an invaluable task of helping to edit the manuscript and compile the indices. Thanks Megan!

The book will be published under the Cascade print of Wipf and Stock

I’m really proud of this project and the authors who contributed! I’ve included a table of contents below.

We have a panel review of this book at #SBLAAR2021 #SBLAAR21. I’ll be posting about the review in the days to come. The book will be in print and on display in time for the exhibit table. Stay tuned for more news! Now to celebrate…
