Antike christliche Apokryphen 7th edition—Chris Keith

Whoa Nelly!  I have on my desk the two-volume Antike christliche Apokryphen in deutscher Übersetzung, edited by Christoph Markschies and Jens Schröter and just published this year by Mohr Siebeck.  This is the seventh edition of the classic Hennecke and Schneemelcher collection of Christian apocrypha, which most English readers will recognize from R. McL. Wilson’s translation New Testament Apocrypha from WJK (I think).  With entirely updated essays and (German) translations of the texts, this is no doubt now the authoritative collection of early Christian apocrypha.  You can find it here on Amazon.  For those of you who are interested in Jesus studies, if you don’t know the name of Jens Schröter—and you should, we’ve mentioned him here in reference to his contribution to Demise of Authenticity—get ready to know it.  I’ve had confirmation that two of his important German books are being translated into English, including his Von Jesus zum Neuen Testament.
