Congratulations go to Tyndale House alumnus Dr Christian Askeland whose book on the Coptic translation of John's gospel has won the International Association of Coptic Studies’ Prize for Academic Excellence.

Christian is now on the research staff of the Kirchliche Hochschule Wuppertal, Germany. He told us:

"The book is essentially the product of Tyndale Library and Sainsbury's chocolate! On a more serious note, I would say that the book reflects the nature of the library itself, in that it interacts with relevant questions about the biblical text and biblical languages in a way that is relevant to scholars from a variety of specialties and from different faith perspectives. The book considers a range of issues related to translation theory, linguistic issues and Coptic-Greek paleography, arguing for a more principled approach to citing the Coptic witnesses in future Greek critical editions."
