It’s here! Sort of… The paperback edition, published through Acumen (a subsidiary of Equinox), has produced the volume on their website for pre-order starting now! And what an attractive volume it is:
I’m quite happy with the relief of the Egyptian carpenter, making wondrous things in his shop, as an example of some of the motifs one may locate in the Jesus narratives; such a conceptual and engaging visual is perfect for our volume.
I am also thrilled to see the price significantly reduced! While the hardback fetched for $110, this volume in paperback is available at a list price of $33.00, with a reduced (discounted) price of only $26.00! Pre-order your copy today and spread the word!
UPDATE: Apparently the Acumen group has not yet set up the Amazon page so attempts to pre-order the volume may not work yet. Sometime in the next few weeks, the volume should be available. I’ll update this page when it is available.
UPDATE #2: It’s finally available for preorder now!

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!
