This week’s selection: Christian and Jewish memory, developing a sense of temporal awareness, and a set of gospel reflections for the new liturgical year

Jesus the Jew in Christian Memory by Barbara U. Meyer (Cambridge University Press, £22.99 (£20.69); 978-1-108-71283-5).

Jesus the Jew is the primary signifier of Christianity’s indebtedness to Judaism. This connection is both historical and continuous. In this book, Barbara Meyer shows how Christian memory, as largely intertwined with Jewish memory, provides a framework to examine the theological dimensions of historical Jesus research. She explores the topics that are central to the Jewishness of Jesus, such as the Christian relationship to law, and otherness as a Christological category.”



How to Inhabit Time by James J. A. Smith (Brazos Press, £14.99 (£13.49); 978-1-58743-591-1).

James K. A. Smith explains that we must reckon with the past in order to discern the present and have hope for the future. Integrating popular culture, biblical exposition, and meditation, he helps us develop a sense of ‘temporal awareness’ that is attuned to the texture of history, the vicissitudes of life, and the tempo of the Spirit.

 

Reflections on the Sunday Gospel (Year A) by Pope Francis (Hodder & Stoughton, £16.99 (£15.29); 978-1-3998-0346-5).

“These reflections — published in English for the first time, drawn both from homilies given by Pope Francis and readings from the Fathers of the Church, including Saint Augustine, Saint Jerome, and Saint Ambrose — do more than offer a way to enter into the liturgical year with weekly readings to enrich your devotional time. They offer Christ, and the power of his resurrection. They offer his words of assurance.”
