NASSCAL Member Publication: J. K. Elliott Goes “Beyond the Bible” in TLS

J. K. Elliott, well-known to Christian Apocrypha scholars as the editor of The Apocryphal New Testament (Oxford University Press, 1995), contributed a commentary piece to the December 16 issue of the Times Literary Supplement entitled “Beyond the Bible: Literature from the fringes of the New Testament.” The article is behind a pay wall, but an excerpt can be found on the TLS site (HERE). Elliott also wrote the preface to New Testament Apocrypha: More Noncanonical Scriptures, which features contributions from a number of NASSCAL members. He mentions the collection in the TLS article: “The number of apocryphal texts already published and thus readily accessible to a general readership has been increasing in recent decades. Even more texts are in the pipeline. A new book by Tony Burke and Brent Landau—New Testament Apocrypha: More non-canonical Scriptures (Eerdmans, 2016)—is the first in a projected multi-volume series. It contains several unknown or unfamiliar texts.”
