I need Sacra Scriptura: How “Non-Canonical” Texts Functioned in Early Judaism and Early Christianity (Jewish and Christian Texts). You probably need it as well as it covers how Judaism and Christianity used the writings of the Rabbis, Church Fathers and "apocrypha"  in the early centuries. So whether it is to understand your heritage or to sharpen your apologetics, you really need this.

And yes, the way this works is I don't get the book until I've convinced enough of you to get it. Thanks.

Thanks MJ for the recommendation and Denise for the prologue this looks like a vey interesting and useful resource.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I measured the yellow line on my screen was 31 mm before my pre-order and 31.5 mm after my pre-order. 

8.5 mm remains, that means 17 more orders needed. Tongue Tied

Pre-ordered it too. 

FWIW, Amazon is selling the paperback for £31; my Logos pre-order price is £13. What a bargain - thanks for flagging this up, MJ. (L)

For those interested in the resource promoted by MJ, I urge you to consider the volume put forth by Mike. The information covered in this volume appears to be foundational to the subjects covered in the former resource. See below.
