Review of Biblical Literature Latest

Latest from the SBL Review of Biblical Literature under the NT and related heading. In the tradition of always bigging up fellow-bibliobloggers, it is good to see a strong review for Michael Bird's new book. Since I am teaching Paul this term, I am encouraged to read it:

It is an intriguing review of Michael Bird's book - but what pray tell is a 'pladoyee'!

Thanks for the promo. If you do read SROG, probably the chapter that will interest you most is the one where I discuss Gal. 2.11-14 (chapter six I think).
