Extract from Paul Foster's review in ExpT:

"Very few doctoral studies can claim to be magisterial, however, Wasserman’s study rightly deserves such a title. He presents an exhaustive study of the manuscript tradition of the Epistle of Jude. What this means in practice is assembling and collating the readings from 560 Greek manuscripts of this letter. The evidence is drawn from familiar papyrus and uncial texts, but the ground-breaking aspect is the integration of evidence from hundreds of minuscule manuscripts and lectionaries."—Paul Foster, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh in Expository Times, (2007) 118.

  1. Tommy, I stopped by the Eisenbraun booth this morning, but they didn't have your book. If you don't mind, let us know that it is here and where to get it at this price. Thanks.

  2. It's this sort of sale that makes me never want to buy books when they are first released.

  3. Tommy, are you really here? I haven't seen you.

  4. Hi everybody, I am here, and my book is indeed available in the Eisenbraun booth; just ask them! I know that Jeff got his copy too.

  5. I paid, I think, a bit over $30 not long after it came out. Not having to wait another 5 years was definitely worth the extra few dollars.
