Yes, sometimes having the freshest resources hurts, right in the pocketbook.
This is the newest, bestest edition of Justin Martyr‘s Apologies available. It’s peachy keen, not least because it’s a diglot. Unfortunately I have to omit the price for this cool book because one of my three regular readers has a weak heart. This is one of those books, you’ve got to want a lot. Hard.
Mind you, this is hardly the most expensive biblical studies type tome I’ve ever seen. Which makes me suggest, if you want to know why your seminary or university’s tuition is so high, check their library holdings. It’s also good to know how expansive a library your educational institute has before choosing one, anyway.
In the meantime, the rest of us non- libraries can hope for a half(!) price paperback edition.
(Note I did not mention Brill once in this post. Well, almost.)
