Novenson’s New Book on Messianism

July 16, 2017

A slightly belated congratulation of my colleague, Matthew Novenson, on the publication of his book, The Grammar of Messianism:  An Ancient Jewish Political Idiom and its Users (Oxford University Press, 2017; the publisher’s online catalog entry here).  He is featured talking about the book on the blog site of our Centre for the Study of Christian Origins here, and here.

Essentially, in this book Novenson probes several questions and queries some previously held views about ancient Jewish (and early Christian) ideas about Messiahs.  It is now likely to be the “go-to” book on the subject, and will further affirm Novenson as a significant contributor to the study of the New Testament and its religious environment.
