All of these volumes are worth what Sheffield is charging for them. (This
is the unbiased :-> opinion of someone who has written chapters for two out
of the three books.) I did not contribute to the first one in Rod's list,
but I've read it. It's well worth the money. The other two are collections
of selected papers presented to the Greek Language and Linguistics Section
at national meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature.
