OT in the NT

Anyone read Hearing the Old Testament in the New Testament? The usual heavey hitters are all there, Porter, Evans, Köstenberger and more. I'm not just interested in it because of the article by Kurt Anders Richardson, on Job as Exemplar in the Epistle of James. I'm very interested in the whole subject, especially with regards to the Gospels and Acts.
Thoughts, comments, criticisms?
Let them be known now, before I take the plunge...

I've read the article by Richardson (a former professor here at Gordon-Conwell). It's a decent article that challenges the assumption that James based his comments on Job on later Jewish literature, such as the Testament of Job, rather than the canonical book. I have not had a chance to read any of the other articles, but it promises to be a good read.

On a side note: K. A. Richardson wrote the commentary on James in the New American Commentary series. He's also a Barthian scholar and ethicist. I'd love to see him engage James from a theological/ethical point of view and produce a monograph on it.
