Death of Richard T. France
I was sorry to read on the Evangelical Textual Criticism blog of the death of Richard France. I only occasionally had the chance to interact with Dick while I was in Oxford but I was always impressed by his gracious and encouraging manner. We came down on opposite sides of the issue that most concerned me at the time, the creativity of the evangelists, but I do recall enjoying engaging with him on the topic. He was a fine New Testament scholar and I know that he was well-loved by his colleagues and students. It's a great loss.
