The pick of the bunch is James Dunn’s ‘robust critique’ (which is a polite way of saying ‘demolition job’) of Gathercole’s work.  I am slightly more well-disposed to Gathercole’s claims, but Dunn’s comments about conceptual naivete and his identification of some of the odder examples of exegetical manoeuvring are right on the money.
