Milavec’s work merits wide study and discussion especially because it presents alternative views and profound challenges to what has been the scholarly consensus on the development and interpretation of the text.
This volume, however, is significant by itself and provides for a wider audience a very accessible introduction to Milavec’s work on this important document.
