Re: [XTalk] James and the Ebionites & Apologies
- First of all, apologies for sending a private message to the list.
I think it's the first time I've ever done that, so I'm really
annoyed with myself! I suppose I hadn't realised that Xtalk
was set up so that the automatic reply goes to the list instead
of the individual, but I still should have checked.
Second, a brief comment:

Well, Goulder is in good company here! His mentor Austin
Farrer was also criticized for not using footnotes in his work.
But in the case of _A Tale of Two Missions_ (_St Paul vs St
Peter_ in the U.S.), it seems to have been a self-conscious
decision to publish a popular-level book before writing the
more serious, academic defences. Many of the theories in
_Tale of Two Missions_ have, as you know, now appeared in
various articles in journals and Festschrifts and Goulder has a
monograph on 1 and 2 Corinthians, focusing on the Paul v.
Peter thesis, published soon by Hendrickson's -- he is
currently working through the proofs.
