Review of Biblical Literature latest

Latest from the SBL Review of Biblical Literature under the NT and related heading. One particularly interesting feature (and I am commenting at the top of the post today rather than the bottom, because it turns out that many miss the comments at the bottom) is the first on the list here, a whopping 47 pages by Scott Brown on Peter Jeffery on Secret Mark. As someone who has written more extensive RBL reviews myself, I must say that I like the fact that this electronic journal is using its lack of print restrictions to do things like this, a good use of the flexibility electronic publication provides. I also look forward to Stephen Carlson's comments on this review.
