Just being advertised by Gorgias Press:
Jeff Childers, Transmission and Reception: New Testament Text-Critical and Exegetical Studies (Texts and Studies Third Series 4; Gorgias Press, 2006)
ISBN 1-59333-367-6; $75.00.
Without a table of contents it is difficult to get much of an idea of the volume and in particular how much others have been involved in its production. The Gorgias Press publicity (here) says the following, and this could be read as suggesting that David Parker had a significant amount to do with the volume:
The sixteen studies in this volume, never before published, explore a variety of topics pertaining to the transmission and reception of the New Testament text. In the first part (Transmission), some of the world’s leading textual critics present new textual data, offer helpful critiques of current methods, and apply the fruits of their text-critical research to issues within New Testament and Early Christian studies. The second part (Reception) presents ground-breaking studies in New Testament backgrounds and language, insightful new interpretations of New Testament passages, and intriguing explorations of the reception of the New Testament within Early Christianity. Including articles by Barbara Aland, D. C. Parker, Eldon Epp, Gordon Fee, Everett Ferguson, and others, the results of these researches bear important implications for the interpretation of the New Testament and for understanding the formative impact of the New Testament text on Early Christianity. Indispensable for those interested in textual criticism, this compilation will be a welcome resource for New Testament scholars, for those interested in Early Christianity, and for students taking seminary or Graduate courses in these areas.
J. W. Childers is Associate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity in the Graduate School of Theology at Abilene Christian University, Abilene, Texas. The Rev. D. C.
