More Old Testament Pseudepigraph Project

Announced in 2005, and directed by Dr. James Davila and Dr. Richard Bauckham, the “More Old Testament Pseudepigraph Project” has today made significant headway. Prof. Davila announced on his blog, Paleo-Judaica, that the first volume of the expected two volume set has been handed into the publishers (Eerdmans). These volumes will be a welcomed addition to the works already done by Charlesworth, Charles, and Sparks. You can see the More Old Testament Pseudepigraph Project’s St. Andrews webpage for the project here.
