Bible and Interpretation: The Collected Essays of James Barr Volumes I-III James Barr Edited by John Barton

Speaking of Prof. Barr, I knew this was in the works but had not yet seen the advert, so many thanks to David Lincicum for the heads up.

Bible and Interpretation: The Collected Essays of James Barr Volumes I-III, James Barr, Edited by John Barton.

This is a three volume collection of the most important published papers of James Barr (1924-2006). The papers deal with questions of theology (especially biblical theology), biblical interpretation and ideas about biblical inspiration and authority, and questions to do with biblical Hebrew and Greek, along with several lexicographical studies, essays and obituaries on major figures in the history of biblical interpretation, and a number of important reviews. Many of pieces collected here have hitherto been available only in journals and hard-to-access collections.

It’s a bit pricey but maybe I can save up the $400 it will be in a year.

    That price point is asinine! There is no reason in God’s green earth that it should be anywhere near that price. Unless it comes with some kind of relic of Barr’s. Maybe his toothbrush, or a pair of his skivvies. Then–and only then!–would I even consider thinking of considering that price.

    Amazon UK has it for £81.80 (which should be 25% off the regular price when published next spring). It is only vol I of three, but it is more than 700 pages, making the price less atrocious, especially in an European context. It is Oxfor University Press.
