Daily Gleanings: New Books (23 July 2019)

Richard Middleton provides the English version of his forward to Cosmovisão Cristã: Reflexões éticas contemporâneas a partir da Teologia Arminio-Wesleyana (a.k.a., Christian Worldview: Contemporary Ethical Reflections from Arminian-Wesleyan Theology).


Larry Hurtado discusses scribal and readerly changes and harmonizations by way of reviewing Cambry Pardee’s, Scribal Harmonization in the Synoptic Gospels (Brill, 2019). Hurtado comments in part,

With the papyrologist, Peter Parsons, therefore, I refer now to “copyists” rather than “scribes,” to designate those individuals who copied texts.  And I distinguish the process of copying texts from the activities of readers and students of those texts.  The activities are distinguishable, even if in some cases they are combined in a given person.
