Dick France, 1938-2012

February 14, 2012

Thanks to a post by Peter Head on the Evangelical Textual Criticism blog today I just learned that a major Markan scholar has died (2/10/2012). France’s commentary on Mark (NIGTC) is one of the better in its department. I’ve also profited much from his volume on Jesus and the OT, particularly his discussion of typology.
