The most recent edition of the Expository Times has a brief review by Paul Foster of Roland Deines’ Acts of God in History, edited by Christoph Ochs and Peter Watts. I have mentioned this volume before, as an important work. Unfortunately I lent my own copy to a friend several months ago, and have not yet received it back! Foster writes:
Both the length and contents of some of these studies make them major scholarly contributions.
However, he also wonders whether the essays needed to be collected and republished so soon after they had been published in their original settings (2007-2012). I suppose my own thinking would be that they were not all available in English previously. For example, I remember labouring uncertainly through the German of ‘Das Aposteldekret – Halacha für Heidenchristen oder christliche Rücksichtnahme auf jüdische Tabus?’ during my doctoral research – so it’s a positive thing, in my view, to now have it available in English!
