Brown has not done a full response to the book, but he has published on
some limited aspects of the case, mostly devoted so far to absolving Smith
of responsibility for the text rather than defending its antiquity:
Scott Brown, "Reply to Stephen Carlson," ExpT 117 (2006): 144-149.
Scott Brown, "The Question of Motive in the Case against Morton Smith,"
JBL 125 (2006): 351-383.
Scott Brown, "Factualizing the Folklore: Stephen Carlson's Case against
Morton Smith," HTR 99 (2006): 291-327.
I've blogged an initial assessment of Brown's JBL article here:http://www.hypotyposeis.org/weblog/2006/07/brown-on-morton-smiths-motives-in-jbl_24.html
