Book of Interest – On the Writing of New Testament Commentaries: Festschrift for Grant R. Osborne on the Occasion of his 70th Birthday

53447While perusing the Brill site I came across a recently published Festschrift for Dr. Grant Osborne of TEDS. If you know me, you know that I enjoy Festschrifts and commentaries. I may be wrong, but at ETS there were two sessions that were dedicated to the topic of commentaries and the writing thereof, and I believe that I heard that a Festschrift was presented to Dr. Osborne at one of those sessions. If I am not crazy and this is correct, then this may be that Festschrift. In any case, take a look at the TOC. There are some nice essays included in this volume.
