Interview with Nick Perrin on Gos Thom
Chris Skinner interviews Nick Perrin about his theory of Thomas' dependence on Tatian. A few interesting points to note: (1) This quote: "Will April DeConick ever wake up one day and say, 'You know, that Nick Perrin was right about Thomas all along'? I doubt it." (2) Nick will be responding to Peter Williams' criticisms voiced in a review in European Journal of Theology in a forthcoming article in Vigiliae Christianae.
For a good overview of Nick Perrin's thesis see "Thomas: The Fifth Gospels," JETS 49.1 (2006) and his short book Thomas: The Other Gospel which I reviewed here.
