Infancy Gospel of Thomas Edition Wins Book Prize

My critical edition of the Greek manuscript tradition of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, De infantia Iesu Evangelium Thomae Graecae (CCSA 17; Turnhout: Brepols, 2010) has been awarded the F. W. Beare Prize at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies. This award recognizes an outstanding book in the areas of Christian Origins, Post-Biblical Judaism and/or Graeco-Roman Religions written by a member of the CSBS and published during the previous two years. The award was established in honour of Francis (Frank) Wright Beare, one of Canada’s most reknowned New Testament scholars. My thanks to the anonymous jurors of the award and my fellow members of CSBS who helped me drink away the award money tonight.
