companiontopaulJust for the sake of completeness I want to let you know about the latest publication, “The Reception of Paul in Heidelberg: The Pauline Commentaries of Caspar Olevianus,” in R. Ward Holder, ed. A Companion to Paul in the Reformation (Leiden: Brill, 2009).  Academic libraries will be interested in this volume but not many individuals will be able to afford this volume.
