Book Notes in Novum Testamentum

In the Book Notes section of the recent Novum Testamentum 49 (2007), 205-208, two books from Brill on textual criticism are briefly and positively reviewed by J. K. Elliott:

Bart Ehrman, Studies in the Textual Criticism of the New Testament (Leiden: Brill, 2006);

Thomas J. Kraus and Tobias Nicklas (eds.), New Testament Manuscripts: Their Texts and Their World (Leiden: Brill, 2006).

In regard to the latter volume, to which I and several other co-bloggers (Head, Holmes and Jongkind) have contributed, Elliott remarks that an older article by Stuart Pickering “The Significance of Non-Continuous New Testament Textual Materials in Papyri” seems not to have been noted in the articles that are relevant to that discussion, among which he includes my own study on P78. I do indeed refer to Pickering's article (see my final citation), but I agree in so far that Pickering's important article could have received more attention in the volume.
