“Who is this son of man?”: Now in Paperback
I’m pleased to note that a multi-author book co-edited by Paul Owen and me, “Who is This Son of Man? The Latest Scholarship on a Puzzling Expression of the Historical Jesus (London: T&T Clark, 2011), originally an appallingly expensive hardback, is now available in paperback at a quite reasonable price; £16.19 ($29.95 US). The publisher’s catalogue page is here.
When the book first appeared, I posted about it here, here, and here. So, I won’t repeat myself at this point, except to say again that I think the volume collectively is perhaps the one place to find all the major linguistic data concerning this curious expression translated “the son of man” (Aramaic, Greek, Ethiopic, etc.) dealt with competently. And you can now get a copy at a reasonable price. Thanks, Bloomsbury (the new owners of T&T Clark)!
