We are pleased to announce that our new title Just Deceivers: An Exploration of the Motif of Deception in the Books of Samuel by Matthew Newkirk has been listed as Book of the Month by the American Journal of Biblical Theology!
Newkirk’s book brings us an in-depth study of the depiction of lies and deception in 1 and 2 Samuel, demonstrating the complexity of the attitudes towards falsehood expressed in the text.
“Combining careful research, a broad acquaintance with pertinent primary and secondary literature, a lucid and inviting writing style, and sound judgment throughout, Newkirk’s book should find a place on the reading lists not only of students of the books of Samuel but of all who have ever puzzled over ‘lying episodes’ in the Bible.”
V. Philips Long, Professor of Old Testament, Regent College, Vancouver.
