Are any of the books in the Library of New Testament Studies "must-have"s? I see threads on the commentaries (I already have both sets, and am willing to count on the NAC being in my L7 Base Package), which are pretty easy to check out, but not on the monographs. Some of them are really off the wall; I can't imagine doing research on a book with the tagline: "This text explores the interconnections between David, Jesus, and Jesse James." But I am at least picking up Adam's book on the strangely blind acceptance of the thesis of house churches. 

A few jump out at me. Has anyone read the "What Does the Scripture Say?" series? Or any of the monographs on 1 Peter (Temple, Christian Identity)? 

I know some of these accept radically different presuppositions than I do (like a nearly complete discontinuity between Paul and Jesus), but if any of these books are the best representatives of that position, I would probably consider owning them too, to interact with. These books are just obscure enough that reviews are few and far between, so I would appreciate the collective wisdom of the Forum.

If there are any other gems you have found, please let me know!

Obviously, much is informed by your needs.  Below were my picks.  I'm mainly interested in what evidence they're throwing at the question of interest.

The Jude volume is really quite interesting; he launches into a discussion of UBS, and much of what sits behind pasting the words of God together (refs to Metzger, Westcott, Evil-Bart, etc.). And Jude is an interesting curiousity.  I don't know where he is driving his arguments .... maybe over a cliff.  It's good reading.

A little off-topic, but long time, no see, Denise. Good to see you posting again.

Thank you, Lew and Bruce!

Now back to Justin's query ... I'm wondering if there was a similar $10 sale on the OT group from the same publisher?  I remember the the big $2k collection, pieces of that one.
