The title is a little eye-brow raising. But it speaks to the curiousity of a pretty wild jewish pseudepigrapha, Qumran ascetics, and then a tight Torah/Talmud later on. How so? And then trying to figure out 'who' Paul was talking about, and who the Acts writer was talking about (Paul/James). Only to find James popularized by the jews.

The book was published last year; and Kindle is quite affordable. John Collins is well represented in Logos. com. He tends to specialize in apocalyptic; Daniel, Enoch, etc.
