Rabbinic Tradition and New Testament Backgound by R.A. Stewart

Roy A. Stewart, The Earlier Rabbinic Tradition and its Importance for New Testament Background

This interesting little monograph on the Rabbinic background to the New Testament came across the sorting tables at Book Aid recently. I have corresponded with IVP’s Rights Department and they cannot say with certainty who owns the copyright. They are, however, happy for me to upload it here, but if anyone knows how to contact the author’s literary executor, do contact me.
