    Last I heard, the chain had been broken before it got to me. I was on the list too and was very much looking forward to reading it.

    I have, in the meantime, read Letis' book The Ecclesiastical Text : Text Criticism, Biblical Authority, and the Popular Mind. (Biola University has a copy in their library.)

    I went ahead and bought a used copy. It cost a bit. But I'll have a copy. And it's apparently no longer being published.

    Sorry for the confusion. The Ecclesiastical Text. But if you know where I can buy a copy of his dissertation I could do that, scan it, and upload it to here. Or email it out. Providing that it is allowed.

    Contacting Sally Pagan (what a last name) about getting a copy of his dissertation and if there any plans to make it available online for purchase.

    She is out of the office until August 1st. When I do get the information on buying it, cost, time, online/offline, etc., I will post it here.

  6. If you can find a copy of The Journal of Christian Reconstruction, Symposium on the Biblical Text and Literature, it has under Book Feature, "a. Introduction: Romancing the Text by Theodore P Letis b. Edward Freer Hills, Contribution to the Revival of the Ecclesiastical Text by Theodore P. Letis." If you can't get a copy, I would be glad to LOAN my copy to you. Just send E-mail! (I am not into theonomy)

  10. Another good book for consideration, on the issue of the Text, is, "Infallibility and Interpretation, by R. J. Rushdoony and P. Andrew Sandlin, from the Chalcedon Foundation. Its not a large book, but was helpful to me.

  11. Thanks for posting the imformation on the (still) availability of the Symposium on the Biblical Text and Literature! I checked several months ago and it wasn't listed for sale. I just ordered 4 more copies and I already have one. For those who are interested, they are now on sale.

    I thought it was taking a bit too long to still be going around. Oh, well; I had hoped to read it.
