Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels by Joel B Green( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 1,183 libraries worldwide
Regrettably, while the general populace on both sides of the Atlantic have been exposed to the sensationalism of such projects as the Jesus Seminar and Jesus: The Evidence, no major undertaking has made available to the larger church the representative scholarship of students of Jesus and the Gospels which is both critically responsible and theologically evangelical. The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels has been prepared to meet such needs as these. For students it provides introductory discussions and comprehensive surveys. For pastors and teachers it provides reliable and readable information. For theologians and biblical scholars it provides up-to-date reviews. - Preface
The Gospel of Luke by Joel B Green( Book )
19 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 626 libraries worldwide
"This highly original commentary on the Gospel of Luke is unique for the way it combines concerns with first-century culture in the Roman world with understanding the text of Luke as a wholistic, historical narrative. Focusing primarily on how each episode functions within Luke's narrative development, Joel B. Green provides countless fresh perspectives on and new insights into the Third Gospel. His extended examination of Luke's literary art and Luke's narrative theology allows the Evangelist to address clearly and convincingly both ancient and contemporary readers."--BOOK JACKET

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 331 libraries worldwide
Are humans composed of a material body and an immaterial soul? This view is commonly held by Christians, yet it has been undermined by recent developments in neuroscience. How much of Christian theology is built on views of humanity that modern science has proved to be untenable? Exploring what Scripture and theology teach about issues such as being in the divine image, the importance of community, sin, free will, salvation, and the afterlife, Joel Green argues that a dualistic view of the human person is inconsistent with both science and Scripture--From publisher description
