Briercrest Writes

Whatever I might say in general about the cancerous state of contermporary academic publishing, I am genuinely enthusiastic about the publications of my colleagues at Briercrest College and Seminary . . . and 2010 was a particularly good year for Briercrest authors:

My NT colleague, Marty Culy, saw the publication of his Ph.D. dissertation:

Culy, Martin M. Echoes of Friendship in the Gospel of John. Sheffield: Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2010. well as a handbook on Luke, co-authored with Mikeal Parsons and Josh Stigall:

Culy, Martin M., Mikeal C. Parsons, and Joshua J. Stigall. Luke: A Handbook on the Greek Text. Waco, TX: Baylor University Press, 2010.

Eric Ortlund also published his dissertation, a steal of a deal at $118.76:

Charles Hackney's Martial Virtues: Lessons in Wisdom, Courage, and Compassion from the World's Greatest Warriors (Rutland, VT: Tuttle Publishing, 2010) has already been published in Italian and is about to come out in French translation.

And from Blayne Banting we had Take Up and Preach (Xulon Press, 2010).

Finally, my colleague Susan Wendel's published dissertation, Scriptural Interpretation and Community Self-Definition in Luke-Acts and the Writings of Justin Martyr (NovT Supp. 139; Leiden: Brill, 2011) is scheduled to appear in February. 

Well done, one and all!
