BMCR Review of Hurtado

Larry Hurtado's book, The Earliest Christian Artifacts: Manuscripts and Christian Origins (for an earlier mention and table of contents see here); is reviewed by Jonathan More for the Bryn Mawr Classical Review here.

The review offers a fairly good description of the book, but doesn't engage particularly with any of the controversial aspects of it (on using canonical organising principles, on the significance of the use of the codex, on the origins of the nomina sacra etc.).

I'm currently writing my own review of Hurtado's book - it should be available through Review of Biblical Literature in the not too distant future!

Thanks for sharing this!
