Weekly Roundup


Over at The Guardian is a sobering piece on how publishers use academics to make millions from academic books that nobody can or will buy.

Nijay Gupta alerted us to some new commentaries of note for 2015, both recently published as well as forthcoming.

Larry Hurtado made some important comments on the importance of taking into account the linguistic situation of first-century Judea. He also (characteristically on his blog) followed up with a slight edge of annoyance at all the commenters who completely missed his point!

Ben Witherington continued his series review of N. T. Wright’s Paul and His Recent Interpreters with Parts 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.

We reviewed Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics: Open Questions in Current Research (Porter & Carson eds.) and Jesus, Paul, and the People of God: A Theological Dialogue with N. T. Wright (Hays & Perrin eds.)
