Reissued classics

The Way of Jesus is an anonymous devotional text. The manuscript, written in German, was discovered in 1516, and first published by Martin Luther. Tony D'Souza has based his new edition on the English translation of 1874, but updated the language for today (Eerdmans, £8.99 (£8.10); 0-8028-2684-9).

Rosemary Moore has edited and added an introduction to a new edition of The History of the Life of Thomas Ellwood. In this auto-biography, Ellwood tells of the early days of the Quakers, and the opposition they met with. His decision to join them led to much strife in his own life (Altamira Press, £16.99 (£16.30); 0-7591-0645-2).
 
John Myrc's Instructions for Parish Priests was written and published in poetic form in the 14th century. How Thow Schalt Thy Paresche Preche: Part two, by Geoffrey Bryant and Gordon Plumb, considers the content and context of Myrc's work (available from Geoff Bryant, 8 Queen Street, Barton-on-Humber DN18 5QP, for £15).

Continuum has published a revised translation into English, by Joel Weinsheimer and Donald Marshall, of Hans-Georg Gadamer's Truth and Method. This philosophical work covers aesthetics, questions of truth, the human sciences, and hermeneutics (£9.99 (£9); 0-8264-7697-X).
