Religious studies professor publishes two books, presents paper at Kings College in London

September 2, 2011

Robert Gnuse, Ph.D., religious studies professor at Loyola University New Orleans, had two books published this year.

“A Short Introduction to Old Testament,” published by Linus Press, is an undergraduate level textbook which provides a basic introduction to the study of the Old Testament based on the latest scholarly models in Old Testament Research.

“No Tolerance for Tyrants: The Biblical Assault on Kings and Kingship” was published by Liturgical Press and is designed as an undergraduate supplementary college textbook. The book is theologically oriented, and Gnuse will use it in his Law in the Ancient World course. According to Gnuse, the book “has a strong social justice emphasis, which makes it accord well with Jesuit ideals.”

Both textbooks are available for purchase in the Loyola University bookstore, and “No Tolerance for Tyrants” is available online at Amazon.com.

In addition, Gnuse presented a paper titled "The Theology of the 7th Century BCE Elohist Tradition" in July at Kings College in London at a meeting of the International Society of Biblical Literature.
