I mentioned the other day the appearance of Avi’s new volume just published by SBL- Judah in the Neo-Babylonian Period. I’m exceedingly pleased to announce that he has agreed to join us on the Biblical Studies List for a colloquium December 2-10. This will follow the previously announced colloquium with Jodi Magness scheduled for Nov 1-10.
This will be a very engaging series of discussions and again, you are invited to join us.
1- Sign into the Discussion list. It is a closed, tightly moderated list which allows only persons taking part in the list to read or post.
2- Get the book, and read it. Then, when the time comes, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Prof. Faust and other leading scholars on the contents.
SBL is very good about getting books to buyers quite quickly so there should be no issues with people who wish to discuss it with its author experiencing any delays.
We would, again, love to have you join us and we would be very pleased if you would help spread the word. And I want to thank Prof. Faust for agreeing to take part (and Prof. Magness again as well).
