@ivpress calls out the lack “proper citation” re: @pastormark

InterVarsity Press tells CT:

Several paragraphs from the New Bible Commentary edited by G. J. Wenham, J. A. Motyer, D. A. Carson and R. T. France published by InterVarsity Press appear in Mark Driscoll’s now out of print book Trial: 8 Witnesses From 1 & 2 Peter. These improperly appeared without quotation or attribution. With proper citation the material would have been a case of fair use.

InterVarsity Press believes all writers should use great care as they do research and prepare texts for any use to make sure that proper acknowledgement is given to source material.

Thanks to Doug for pointing this out.

I wish I could go into detail, but I do know IVP and IVP-Academic uses great care when it comes to plagiarism and are generous when it comes to fair use.

To note, this is for a different book than the Tyndale published one.
