If you're referring to the book of Edgar's I'm thinking of, it is in a very
nice series of books published by Fortress Press, all about the same size
(paperback, ca 100 pp., handbook size) on several of the significant OT and
NT methodologies, _What is Form Criticism?_, _What is Redaction
Criticism?_, etc. While each of these is favorable to what the method has
achieved, I think each also offers a judicious evaluation of the methods
advantages and disadvantages.
