SBL Paper Accepted

I got word from SBL that my paper for the Synoptic Gospels section has been approved. The paper is entitled: Sectarian Gospels for Sectarian Communities? The Non-canonical Gospels and Bauckham's "Gospel for All Christians".

The paper will respond to criticism of Bauckham's GAC that comparison with non-canonical Gospels proves that the canonical Gospels were indeed written for isolated and introspective communities such as a Matthean community.

I'm looking forward to the seminary, I missed it last year, anything Mark Goodacre chairs is normally worth listening to.
