New book on Language of NT

July 15, 2013

This was apparently released in February, but my author copy failed to arrive. I learned of it via an email query re. one of my chapters and the publisher has just now sent a replacement copy. (I received an empty, unopened box from the Netherlands late last winter, but no indication from whom it cam [it was a commercial shipper] and no means of contacting them. Apparently the shipper missed putting a book in my box!) I’ve not yet had a chance to read much of it. I shouldn’t evaluate my own chapters, but the one other chapter that I have read was well done—Jon Watt’s chapter on the history of the Greek language.
