Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels by Joel B Green( Book )
17 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 1,145 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

"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

Body, soul, and human life : the nature of humanity in the Bible by Joel B Green( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 324 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. 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. This wide-ranging discussion is sure to provoke much thought and debate. Bestselling books have explored the relationship between body, mind, and soul. Now Joel Green provides us with a biblical perspective on these issues

Recovering the scandal of the cross : atonement in New Testament & contemporary contexts by Joel B Green( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
The cross is the defining symbol of the Christian faith. Yet two thousand years of Western art and architecture and culture have blinded us to what was most obvious to first-century eyes-- the utter scandal of the cross. The Roman cross was first and foremost an instrument of cruel, shameful and violent execution. Yet early Christians quickly recognized the atoning significance of the cross of Christ, and it resonated deeply with their experience of salvation. But the cross remained a blessing framed by scandal, an epochal and yet mysterious event, irreducible to a single formulation. As Green and Baker demonstrate, the New Testament displays a rich array of interpretations of the cross. But for many Christians today, not only has the true scandal of the cross been obscured, the variety of its New Testament interpretations have been reduced to subpoints in a single, controlling view of the atonement. Tragically, the way in which the atonement is frequently and popularly expressed now poses a new scandal, one that is foreign to the New Testament and poses needless obstacles to twenty-first-century people and cultures. The authors explore how the atonement has been understood within a variety of contemporary contexts-- both Western and non-Western-- and show how we can enter into the thoroughly Christian mission of restating the saving scandal of the cross in our multicultural world of the twenty-first-century
1 Peter by Joel B Green( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 250 libraries worldwide
Following Green's paragraph-by-paragraph commentary is an extended discussion of the "theological horizons" of 1 Peter.

Reading Luke : interpretation, reflection, formation ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
In his introduction, Anthony Thiselton sets the context for a wideranging exploration of how to read Luke for God's address today. Traditional and more contemporary approaches are brought into dialogue with each other as several Lukan scholars reflect on how best to read Luke as Scripture. Topics covered include the purpose of Luke- Acts, biblical theology and Luke, narrative and Luke, reception history and Luke, the parables in Luke, a missional reading of Luke, and theological interpretation of Luke. Since prayer is a major theme in Luke, this volume explores not only the role of prayer in Luke, but also the relationship between prayer and exegesis
