1 and 2 Thessalonians : the NIV application commentary from biblical text-- to contemporary life by Michael W Holmes( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today

The Apostolic Fathers : Greek texts and English translations by Michael W Holmes( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the earliest extant Christian writings outside the New Testament, the Apostolic Fathers are a primary resource for the study of early Christianity. These writings provide significant and unparalleled insight into the Christian movement during a critical transitional stage in its history. This updated edition of Holmes's 1992 Greek-English diglot edition of the Apostolic Fathers is arguably the best collection of these writings available." "The introductions to each ancient document, the bibliographies, and the textual notes make this volume essential for the serious study of early Christianity. Scholars, research libraries, and students of the Apostolic Fathers will welcome this updated edition. Book jacket."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an important collection of writings revered by early Christians but not included in the final canon of the New Testament. Here a leading expert on these texts offers an authoritative contemporary translation, in the tradition of the magisterial Lightfoot version but thoroughly up-to-date. The third edition features numerous changes, including carefully revised translations and a new, more user-friendly design. The introduction, notes, and bibliographies have been freshly revised as well
The textual history of the Greek New Testament : changing views in contemporary research( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays by respected scholars represents the state of the art of textual criticism as applied to the New Testament. Addressing core topics such as the causes and forms of variation, contamination and coherence, and the goals and the canons of textual criticism, it presents a first-class overview of traditional and innovative methodologies as they are applied to reconstructing the initial wording of the New Testament writings. In this context, the new Coherence-Based Genealogical Method (CBGM) is introduced and discussed extensively. Integrating established approaches and procedures, the CBGM features a new category of external evidence: genealogical coherence of witnesses."--Publisher's description

Morphological Adaptations in Crania of Four Species of Cricetid Rodent Variation Through Time and Along Elevational Gradients by Michael W Holmes( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Determining how species respond to prolonged environmental change is critical to understanding both their evolutionary biology and their conservation needs. In general, organisms can respond to changing environmental conditions by moving, by adapting in situ, or by going locally or globally extinct. Morphological changes - whether plastic or adaptive - are one way that species may respond in situ to local environmental change. Cranial morphology is an important feature of vertebrate anatomy because this modular structure acts as a medium with the environment, housing the special sensory organs, containing part of the central nervous system, and acting as part of the masticatory apparatus. By examining cranial morphological change through time, we can gain insight into how species are adapting to changes in their environment. In this dissertation, I examine cranial morphological adaptation in several species of cricetid rodent. In chapter 2, I examine cranial morphological adaptation in a widespread species. Peromyscus maniculatus is a habitat and dietary generalist found throughout North America. This species is ideal for studying adaptive change because it is found in multiple ecosystems and has not exhibited elevational range shifts in response to modern climate change. To assess potential responses of P. maniculatus to changing conditions in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, I quantified cranial variation in museum specimens of this species collected approximately 100 years apart. Specifically, I examined how cranial morphology varies in three populations of this geographically widespread, ecological generalist over elevation and time. My analyses indicate that cranial morphology does not differ with elevation within either modern or historical samples but does vary between time periods, suggesting that in situ responses to environmental change have occurred. Contrary to predictions based on Bergman's rule, I found no consistent relationship between body size and either elevation or time, suggesting that morphological differences detected between historic and modern specimens are specific to factors influencing cranial structure. Collectively, these analyses demonstrate the potential importance of in situ changes in morphology as a response to changing environmental conditions. In chapter 3, I expand my morphological study into four other species of cricetid rodent. These species, Reithrodontomys megalotis, Microtus californicus, Neotoma macrotis, and N. fuscipes are all found along broad elevational gradients in California's Sierra Nevada and Cascade Mountains. These three species range from strict ecological specialists (N. macrotis and N. fuscipes) to ecological generalists (R. megalotis). I use geometric morphometrics to compare within-species variation across three transects over nearly a century. I show that counter to my hypothesis, there is no predictive morphological responses based on geography and ecology. Specialists and generalists show relatively similar rates of evolutionary change but no consistent pattern emerges in geographic location. Responses are heterogeneous even within taxa. Finally, in chapter 4 I examine morphological variation over an elevational gradient. I test whether R. megalotis, M. californicus, and N. macrotis adhere to Bergmann's. This ecogeographic postulate suggests that in colder environments such as high elevation, that endothermic organisms will tend to be larger. This theory is based on thermoregulatory physiology. I show that both M. californicus and N. macrotis exhibit negative correlations between elevation and body size. This is likely a plastic response due to shorter growing seasons and thus reduced food availability at higher elevations
