Abstract

235 many of James's summaries of long works which are not given in full trans- lation in either Hennecke-Schneemelcher or Elliott have been adapted and included by Elliott, so that Elliott gives more information about the contents of such works than Hennecke-Schneemelcher. As in James, there are extensive summaries of the Assumption literature, a category of apocryphal work which Hennecke - Schneemelcher excludes altogether. Thus, even in terms of the range of works included in each collection, none who already has Hennecke - Schneemelcher should suppose they do not also need Elliott. Of course, it is also extremely valuable to have two English translations of the works included in both. The greater length of Hennecke - Schneemelcher is really due to its more extensive introductory matter. Elliott's introductions to the texts are usual- ly briefer than those in Hennecke-Schneemelcher, but they are much more informative than those in the original James. They provide the most essential technical information in each case. Comments on such matters as date and literary relationships are usually cautious, hesitating to endorse anything but a scholarly consensus, but accurately reporting the best re- cent scholarship. Since, unlike the contributors to Hennecke - Schnee- melcher,
