We just received word that Equinox is planning to release a paperback of the recently published volume ‘Is This Not the Carpenter?’!
This is huge news, as it suggests that the buzz about the book is good enough that it warrants a paperback printing–this is uncommon. In fact the paperback publication of ‘Carpenter’ will mark the second paperback publication in the Copenhagen International Seminar series through Equinox–the first being Mogens Müller’s The Expression ‘Son of Man’ and the Development of Christology: A History of Interpretation and the third overall (Thomas L. Thompson’s Jerusalem in Ancient History and Tradition through CIS, but by T&T Clark)!
Just today we selected the image for the cover design and we are told that the paperback will be featured in Equinox’s 2013 catalog (due out soon). As soon as I have a design image I am permitted to share, I will post it here. The best feature about a paperback is the price reduction–I expect (but won’t know until Equinox sets the numbers in place) retail price to be set between $30-$40! That is a significant reduction from the current price of $110!
