These resources range from popular-level to academic, and include non-published items as well as items published by serious publishers.
Coming in 2013: Paul and the Rhetoric of Reversal in 1 Corinthians: The Impact of Paul’s Gospel on Paul’s Macro-Rhetoric, to be published by Cambridge University Press. This is a revision of my doctoral thesis. I argue that for Paul, Jewish and Greco-Roman communicative resources are brought into the service of an argumentative strategy that is governed by his gospel of the death and resurrection of the messiah.
Coming in 2013: The Future of Biblical Interpretation: Responsible Plurality in Biblical Hermeneutics, to be published by Paternoster; co-edited with Stanley Porter. This volume contains the papers that were presented at a conference of the same name at the University of Nottingham in 2012. It is a focused book, arguing for an approach to biblical interpretation that is appropriately informed by philosophical hermeneutics. It seeks to acknowledge both the openness of certain types of text, and the constraints that prove fruitful for responsible interpreters.
Coming in 2013: Horizons in Hermeneutics: A Festschrift in Honor of Anthony C. Thiselton, to be published by Eerdmans; co-edited with Stanley Porter. Starting with Thiselton’s own approach to hermeneutics, this volume offers new essays by a variety of authors (e.g. Dunn, Moberly, Goldingay, Fowl).
2012: The World of 1 Corinthians: An Annotated Visual and Literary Source-Commentary (Milton Keynes: Paternoster, 2012): http://www.bookdepository.com/World-1-Corinthians-Matthew-Malcolm/9781842277423
I developed this resource firstly for my own benefit during my doctoral studies, placing my own translation of 1 Corinthians alongside photos and maps of relevant artefacts and locations, and new translations of relevant ancient literature. The aim of the book is to make the world in which 1 Corinthians arose a little more accessible.
2011: “When Historical Backgrounds Obscure the Text: The Case Study of 1 Corinthians 15″: http://www.scribd.com/doc/77986343/When-Historical-Backgrounds-Obscure-the-Text (full text)
This paper, presented at the Perth Theological Colloquium in 2011, looks at scholarly interpretations of 1 Corinthians 15 and asks the question: how do we determine the relevance of proposed “backgrounds” to the text?
2011: “‘That God may be All in All’: The Glory of God in 1 Corinthians,” in The Wisdom of the Cross: Exploring 1 Corinthians (ed. Brian Rosner; Nottingham, Apollos, 2011): 201-218.
In this chapter I pay close attention to John Chrysostom’s reading of 1 Corinthians on this topic.
2011: “The ‘Gospel’ in its First-Century Setting”: http://www.scribd.com/doc/77990215/The-Gospel-in-Its-First-Century-Setting (full text)
This paper, presented at Trinity Theological College in March 2011, explores the development of “euangelion” as a term that describes the Christian message.
2010: John Chrysostom’s Homilies on 1 Corinthians in Greek and English
This is a resource I put together for my own benefit during my doctoral studies, when I couldn’t find a Greek-English edition of this important work. I also found that online versions of Migne’s Greek edition were incomplete and contained errors. I simply brought together a corrected version of this classic Greek edition, and the classic English translation.
2001: The Bible Overview, published by Matthias Media
I developed this resource with a couple of friends back in my youth ministry days. It aims to help ordinary people come to an understanding of the Bible’s storyline. It comes in the form of a DVD-Rom with accompanying participants’ books.
