RBL and Aus

The latest RBL includes this:
Aus, Roger David
My Name Is "Legion": Palestinian Judaic Traditions in Mark 5:1-20 and Other
Gospel Texts
http://www.bookreviews.org/bookdetail.asp?TitleId=4779
Reviewed by Craig Evans
Roger Aus has produced loads of books on the haggadic background to the gospels and provides all sorts of evidence that would (and sadly still does) otherwise go undetected. He does think a lot of the gospel material is creative haggadah and given that there are some strong tendenncies to see a lot of the gospel material as secondary (or whatever you want to call it) it is amazing that his work does not get widely publicised and discussed as it should.
