In case you’ve missed it-
I’m happy to announce that Jodi Magness has agreed to join us on the Biblical Studies List (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/biblical-studies/) for a colloquium (discussion) on her just published volume, The Archaeology of the Holy Land: From the Destruction of Solomon’s Temple to the Muslim Conquest. It’s available in paperback from Amazon for $28. A bargain.
Our discussion will take place November 1-10 and if you would like to take part, get the book, and read it. Then, when the time comes, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Prof. Magness and other leading scholars on the contents.
I’m also pleased to announce that Avraham Faust has agreed to join us on the List for a colloquium scheduled for December 2-10. His book, also just published, Judah in the Neo-Babylonian Period, is available from SBL.
