Don Carson’s editorial ends with this twofold announcement:

For more than five years, Alan Thompson has provided excellent service in his role as NT book review editor of Themelios. His efficiency, good judgment, and editorial skills have been greatly appreciated. Owing to other opportunities and challenges, this is the last fascicle in which he will serve in this capacity. We will miss him.

Succeeding him is David Starling, currently serving as lecturer in New Testament at Morling College, Sydney. Some may recognize him as the author of Not My People: Gentiles as Exiles in Pauline Hermeneutics in the BZNW series, or from his recent UnCorinthian Leadership. He can be contacted at david.starling@thegospelcoalition.org.

And here's a picture from last month when six of the Themelios editors met face-to-face in San Diego at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society:
