Why the Bible Began: An alternative history of scripture and its origins by Jacob L. Wright (Cambridge University Press, £25 (£22.50); 978-1-108-49093-1).

Mirror of Obedience: The poems and selected prose of Simone Weil, translated and edited by Silvia Caprioglio Panizza and Philip Wilson (Bloomsbury, £14.99 (£13.49); 978-1-350-25068-0).

“Simone Weil (1909-1943) was one of the foremost French philosophers of the 20th century; a mystic, activist, and writer whose profound work continues to intrigue and inspire today. Mirror of Obedience collects together Weil's poetry and autobiographical writings translated into English for the first time.”
