I apologize for the lateness of this reply, but our seminary was on its
first Fall break all last week, and during that time I was busily
preaching and spelunking in West Virginia (not at the same time).
Rather than occupy space on the list, selected bibliographical data was
sent privately to Prof. Hurtado (in case anyone was wondering).

Nor do I expect anyone who follows a different methodology to be
persuaded by my comments. There are certain presuppositional aspects
which affect any theory (modern eclecticism or any other) which tend to
obviate cross-over to a wholly different theoretical position, since so
to do would require modification or abandonment of those presuppositional
principles. Suffice it to say that my own text-critical explorations
caused me to abandon the reasoned eclectic position which I held before
the early 1970s.
