Review of Biblical Literature July 30, 2007

The following new reviews have been added to the Review of Biblical Literature on July 30, 2007.

There are many interesting reviews in this issue. Notably, I wish to highlight the compilation of essays from the 2005 Limerick conference (a conference that I missed, unfortunately) edited by Thomas L. Brodie, Dennis MacDonald, and Stanley E. Porter, The Intertextuality of the Epistles: Explorations of Theory and Practice. This volume is certainly worth engaging, but the price of the book could be rather prohibitive.
