Review of Mackie, Expanding Ezekiel

THE BIBLICAL REVIEW BLOG: “Expanding Ezekiel” by Timothy P. Mackie (William Brown).
Timothy P. Mackie. Expanding Ezekiel: The Hermeneutics of Scribal Addition in the Ancient Text Witnesses of the Book of Ezekiel. Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, pp. 339, 100 €.

In this high-level study and analysis of the scribal additions in the book of Ezekiel, Timothy P. Mackie (Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Western Seminary, Portland Oregon) explores the variety of textual additions. Through his methodology and large grouping of what he considers to be scribal additions, Mackie contributes the broader discussion regarding early Jewish textual transmission practices.

Interesting and prolific blog, which has just come to my attention. William Brown is an MA student at the University of Chicago.
