BREAKING: Gathercole's Monograph Unchanged!


I got this email from a colleague yesterday:

I was looking up Simon Gathercole and found his wikipedia page. I thought this line was great:

"His monograph Where is Boasting? (2002) was, and indeed still is, an examination of the theme of boasting in early Judaism and in Romans 1-5 against the eschatological backdrop of final judgement."

Glad it "indeed still is". It really sucks when monographs change unexpectedly
.
Dr. Gathercole, you will be relieved to learn that your thesis has not evolved post-publication.

  1. I think you should add to his wiki "...and henceforth ever twilt be"

  2. Maybe the author of this wikipedia article is a proponent of a "canonical approach", in which the meaning of a writing changes with shifts in the reading community and in a writing's paratextual aspects. ;)
