Blurb of Carlson’s Gospel Hoax

Publisher’s Weekly reviews the book we’re all waiting for with bated breath: Stephen Carlson’s The Gospel Hoax: Morton Smith’s Invention of Secret Mark. The reviewer concludes,

“Utilizing sound historical and linguistic methods, Carlson presents a convincing case for Smith’s authorship of Secret Mark. While readers unfamiliar with the critical apparatus scholars use to evaluate ancient texts will find the book challenging, Carlson’s presentation of the evidence strongly supports his views.” (PW, July 25, p 70).

Not that PW is an authority on these things. This simply confirms what we knew all along but, unlike Stephen, couldn’t prove.
