Most widely held works by Todd C Penner
The writings of the New Testament : an interpretation by Luke Timothy Johnson( Book )
17 editions published between 1951 and 2002 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
The completely revised and updated version of Johnson's very successful introduction to the New Testament (1999) is now available with a CD-ROM that contains the entire original text with copious searching and researching features, plus hyper-links to the NRSV. This book serves as an introduction to the writings of the New Testament (NT). Its subject is a set of writings ordinarily found with another collection in the large anthology called the Bible. These writings came to birth in a specific time and place and were generated by specific causes. It may seem odd to think of the "birth" of literature, but the word is a reminder that what the reader now meets as an ancient text began as a living expression of living experience, and entered the world with a still visible parentage. - Publisher
The Epistle of James and eschatology : re-reading an ancient Christian letter by Todd C Penner( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 280 libraries worldwide
The aim of this book is to challenge the common view that the epistle of James is a late Hellenistic Wisdom document that has little importance for our understanding of earliest Christianity. The author undertakes two main projects: first, an examination of the various assumptions about date, setting and content that have influenced how the letter of James has been interpreted; and second, a re-reading of the letter that seeks to uncover the special character of the epistle by stressing the fusion of its eschatological framework with its ethical instruction. The literary, cultural, and social

In praise of Christian origins : Stephen and the Hellenists in Lukan apologetic historiography by Todd C Penner( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
Almost all scholars look to Acts 6:1-8:3 as providing the bedrock of early Christian tradition. The incident between the Hebrews and the Hellenists are understood to reflect real historical and theological problems in the early Jerusalem community, demonstrating the Hellenist role as a historical bridge between Jesus and Paul. Penner''s study challenges the fundamental assumptions of this approach. Penner emphasizes the rhetorical and moral dimensions of ancient historiographical theory, especially the centrality of narrative and plot, the use of vivid description, the application of comparis

De-introducing the New Testament : texts, worlds, methods, stories by Todd C Penner( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
The critical focus in De-Introducing the New Testament on the modernist genre of writing and type of intellectual-cultural-political practice that is the "Introduction to the New Testament" is long overdue and much needed. The writers are bold and expansive in their critique and in their proposals. Their book merits serious attention. I hope it provokes sustained rethinking and reorientation. Vincent L. Wimbush, Institute for Signifying Scriptures

Church Origins Collection captures the earliest development of the church in history, theology and theory. The ten volumes offered explore the cultural, doctrinal and traditional landscape of the budding church. These include the church's roots in and relationships with the Graeco-Roman, Judaic, and Mesopotamian worlds; its integration into African and European cultures; its ministerial life and doctrines; and more. Written by top scholars of the New Testament, each title presents state-of-the-art scholarship and keen insight into the origins of the Christian church. The volumes focus not only on where the church has been, but the implications of that history on our present era. This includes the contemporary view of the role of elder in the church, the ordination of women, and charismatic gifts."--Logos web site
