Back to life—TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism

Tobias Nicklas announced to me that the TC journal (http://purl.org/tc) has started again and Tobias is the new book review editor. The first article since 2003 has been published in the current vol. 11 (2006), written by Kannaday, whose work was recently discussed on this blog):

Wayne C. Kannaday, "Are Your Intentions Honorable?": Apologetic Interests and the Scribal Revision of Jesus in the Canonical Gospels

Abstract: Scribes working with New Testament MSS sometimes left "fingerprints" on the text that betray their particular theological interests, many of which were apologetic in nature.
There is also a review by the book review editor himself:

Josep Rius-Camps and Jenny Read-Heimerdinger, The Message of Acts in Codex Bezae: A Comparison with the Alexandrian Tradition. Vol. 1: Acts 1.1-5.42: Jerusalem. (Tobias Nicklas, reviewer)

Good luck to the restarted journal!
