JTS 57 (2006) reviews

There are a number of reviews of text-critical interest in the latest volume of the Journal of Theological Studies.

Here are the main ones:

pp. 177-179
Alison G. Salvesen reviews Joshua: Jesus Son of Naue in Codex Vaticanus. By A. GRAEME AULD. Pp. xxix + 236. (Septuagint Commentary Series.) Leiden and Boston: Brill, 2005.

The first vol. of the Septuagint Commentary Series to appear. It appears that Auld has adopted a usefully literal translation technique.

pp. 203-208
Jennifer Dines reviews The Open Book and the Sealed Book: Jeremiah 32 in its Hebrew and Greek Recensions. By ANDREW G. SHEAD. Pp. 316. (Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series, 347; The Hebrew Bible and its Versions, 3.) London: Sheffield Academic Press (a Continuum imprint), 2002.

Thoroughly worthwhile summary and evaluation.

pp. 217-219
J. K. Elliott reviews Reading and Writing in the Time of Jesus. By ALAN MILLARD. Pp. 288. London: T & T Clark (A Continuum Imprint), 2004.

The new paperback edition is essentially unchanged from the edition of 2000.

pp. 235-246
J. Neville Birdsall reviews The Textual Tradition of the Gospels: Family 1 in Matthew. By AMY S. ANDERSON. Pp. x + 219. (New Testament Tools and Studies, 32.) Leiden: Brill, 2004.

‘I have little but applause for what it presents’ says the late Neville Birdsall. I wonder if this was one of the last things he wrote.

pp. 287-291
J. Lionel North reviews Biblical Greek Language and Lexicography: Essays in Honor of Frederick W. Danker. Edited by BERNARD A. TAYLOR, JOHN A. L. LEE, PETER R. BURTON, and RICHARD E. WHITAKER. Pp. xxii + 266. Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans, 2004.

In this volume the rather polemic second attack by the Assyriologist Rykle Borger on the UBS GNT and NA26 makes an interesting read.
