Announcing A Festschrift In Honor Of David Alan Black

I have the privilege and the pleasure of announcing a new book titled Getting into the Text: New Testament Essays in Honor of David Alan Black, which was recently published by Wipf and Stock. You can find the book on Amazon here and on the publisher's website here, and you can download the promotional flyer from the publisher here. The back cover reads as follows:
"David Alan Black has been one of the leading voices in New Testament studies over the last forty years. His contributions to Greek grammar, textual criticism, the Synoptic problem, the authorship of Hebrews, and many more have challenged scholars and students to get into the text of the New Testament like never before and to rethink the status quo based on all the evidence. The present volume consists of thirteen studies, written by some of Black’s colleagues, friends, and former students, on a number of New Testament topics in honor of his successful research and teaching career. Not only do they address issues that have garnered his attention over the years, they also extend the scholarly discussion with up-to-date research and fresh evaluations of the evidence, making this book a valuable contribution in itself to the field that Black has devoted himself to since he began his career."
I'll have more to share about the book––and the man it aims to honor––in the days ahead, but I wanted to let you know about it as soon as possible. Danny and I are so thankful to each of the contributors, and we trust you'll find much in this volume to reflect on as you get into the Text.

Hint: If you're in Wake Forest, North Carolina or its environs on Thursday, April 20th, you might want to head over to Southeastern for chapel (or tune in on the live stream here). That's all I'm saying . . .
