Amazon Bestseller!

I must offer thanks to those who decided to pre-order The Only True God. I just looked and it was ranked as a bestseller, coming in at #53 on amazon.com in the category

Books > Religion & Spirituality > Judaism > History of Religion

Of course, I initially suspected that perhaps there were only 53 books in this category, but not so! :-)

    Prof. McGrath,I was wondering, what do you cover in this book that you do not cover in your other excellent book on Christology?

    Thank you for the compliment, and the question! The short answer is that the new book has a chapter on John where there is some overlap with the treatment of monotheism and Christology in my first book. But the book as a whole is about the study of monotheism in relation to Christology, the nature of Jewish monotheism in the Greco-Roman era, and the character of a wider range of New Testament writings considered in relation to the Jewish monotheism of the time. The book ends with a consideration of Rabbinic literature and the “parting of the ways”, and then a consideration of how the book’s main point might relate to things like Christian theology and Jewish-Christian dialogue.
