TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism, Relaunched

On the Evangelical Textual Criticism blog, Tommy Wasserman has announced that TC has been relaunched. This journal is a peer-reviewed, electronic journal, and an on-line publication of the SBL, which is  listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals. See the post here for all of the details.

I’m excited about this announcement, since hopefully, the journal will continue to publicize the results of scholarly study of the biblical text and the history of its transmission. It should continue to advance knowledge in a much disputed field of study.

My only *gripe* is that there is not a Septuagintalist or a Hebrew Bible text critic among the editors. There are scholars of these stripes on the editorial board of course, but for a journal which claims to be one of “Biblical Textual Criticism,” it would have been nice to have had an OT/LXX scholar among the editors.

This is minor complaint, but one I thought should be registered.
