NT Scholars blurbs about the book (#1)

I'm starting to work on the "shells" for the three indices; more on that later.

In this post, I thought I would start sharing the "blurbs" that some New Testament scholars have written for the book (they were sent advance pdf copies).  

The first is from Professor Christopher Rowland (Oxford University):  

"David Gowler is a master of the reception history of the Bible, and he demonstrates his wisdom and experience in this wonderful book about the reading of the parables of Jesus down the centuries. It shows the richness of the resources that await us and the benefits for biblical interpretation which come from this approach, particularly when they are so sensitively and lucidly applied. I am grateful to him for sharing his discoveries with us, his fortunate readers, on this stage of his intellectual journey." 
Christopher Rowland, Dean Ireland Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture Emeritus, University of Oxford
