TC’s second coming

It tooks us quite some time and effort to get things going, but today, finally, we officially relaunch TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism.

In the 15th Volume (2010), four articles are found. The first one is by Larry Hurtado on Eldon Epp - and there is more on Eldon Epp to come! -, and the other three are by members of the editorial team, Tim Finney, Tommy Wasserman, and me. It is, in a sense, our way to present ourselves. The volume also has two important book reviews that might have been published earlier but are still very welcome, in particular for their contributions to on-going debates.

In coming years we hope to publish articles and reviews on a regular basis and thus make the journal once again into an important platform of scholarly biblical textual criticism. For the book reviews, we are glad to have the assistance of Thomas Kraus and Heike Braun, as book editor and assistant book editor, respectively.

For the next volume (16 (2011)), some articles are already in the pipe-line. Of course, submissions, also/especially on OT textual criticism, are very welcome. Details are found on the journal’s website. There as well, it is explained how to contact the editors for any question or suggestion you might have.
