“Canon Press has investigated the charges of plagiarism and improper citation in A Justice Primer, and it is abundantly clear that the editor and co-author, Randy Booth, plagiarized material in multiple instances from a number of different sources. Such negligence and editorial incompetence is a gross breach of contract and obviously does not meet Canon Press’s publishing standards. As such, we have discontinued the book, effective immediately. Refer to the author statements below for more information. We would like to specifically thank Rachel Miller for bringing this to our attention so we could take the necessary steps to immediately correct such a serious error.”

Rachel Miller: Christian Publisher Addresses Plagiarism Allegations, Withdraws Books from Print

Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company discovered that one of their authors committed plagiarism in his contributions to one of their commentary sets. Rachel Miller has the details Christian Publisher Addresses Plagiarism Allegations, Withdraws Books from Print. Rachel has too much class to say this — but I don’t. Eerdmans conducted an investigation into the charges and did not declare the messenger guilty of personal animosity against the plagiarist or the publisher. They owned responsibility for their error and didn’t rail against anyone. Then again, Eerdmans is actually a Christian publisher.

UPDATE:
New Saint Andrews College offers NSA credits for a Logos Online course that requires students to use Omnibus Volume VI, which contains massive amounts of plagiarized text. Shameless hacks, every one of them.
