Well, technically this wasn’t “in the mail” because Joel is visiting Louisiana and gave this to me in person. But, I want to say thank to Mohr Siebeck for sending a copy of Essays on John and Hebrews by Harold Attridge.
I will be writing a couple of posts about the book once I have had the opportunity to read through it. However, my first impression is a very good one, though perhaps it is a bit shallow ;-). The book looks and feels absolutely beautiful. It is a tightly bound hardcover. The dustjacket and front and back covers are impeccably clean. Thumbing through, the paper is of a very high quality. It even smells wonderful. Needless to say, it will look great on my bookshelf.
Now, with that bit of scholarly fawning done, I know that most of you will be more interested in the contents. So, in coming days, I will be posting on the author, contents, and my reaction to the book.
