Consequences of Plagiarism

Letter to the Hebrews

A publishing house is pulping the unsold works and offering a refund on three popular volumes of scripture commentary after the author has admitted to clear-cut plagiarism.

In a statement released through the publisher, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., and reported on the Anglican Ink website, Dr Peter T. O’Brien says “In the New Testament commentaries that I have written, although I have never deliberately misused the work of others, nevertheless I now see that my work processes at times have been faulty and have generated clear-cut, but unintentional, plagiarism. For this I apologize without reservation.”

Good Shepherd College has the three volumes concerned in its library.
