BBRSup Announces a New Dissertation Series 

For some time BBRSup has not been able to publish recent Ph.D. dissertations and theses as part of the series. We are launching a new BBR Dissertation Series (BBRDiss) to be published by Gorgias Press.  While retaining our relationship with Eisenbrauns for the BBRSup, we will also publish the best of academic dissertations and theses within the spirit of IBR.  As we begin this venture, we are delighted to have Dr. Cynthia Westfall in New Testament ([email protected]) and Dr. Benjamin Noonan in Old Testament ([email protected]) as editors for the series.  Dr. Richard Hess ([email protected])   continues as general editor of the Supplement and the   Dissertation series. If you know of quality academic work that could be considered, please contact us.
