Sheffield Phoenix Press

I recently received a marketing e-mail from Sheffield Phoenix Press, so I might as well take the time now to say a few words about the press. Although it has only been around since 2004, it is the successor to the former Sheffield Academic Press of the University of Sheffield in England. It is now an independent academic press focused on biblical studies. It was founded and is still directed by David J. A. Clines, the greatest living Hebrew scholar. Clines is the editor, and Sheffield Phoenix Press is the publisher, of the 9-volume Dictionary of Classical Hebrew (1993-2016), which is slowly being replaced by the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew Revised, of which two volumes have been released. I only have one book in my library published by Sheffield Phoenix Press: a commentary on Romans titled The Letter to the Romans: A Linguistic and Literary Commentary (2015), by one of my favorite authors and biblical scholars, Stanley E. Porter. Although there are a few books published by Sheffield Phoenix Press that I would not mind reading (like Articular Infinitives in the Greek of the New Testament: On the Exegetical Benefit of Grammatical Precision [2006], by Denny Burk), there are no other books by this publisher that would be of interest to most readers of The Preacher’s Library.
