UPDATE: And the winner is…. Jason! Email me your address, J.
The volume of essays Crossley and I edited is now available for your reading pleasure.
As biblical studies becomes increasingly fragmented, this collection of essays brings together a number of leading scholars in order to show how historical reconstruction, philology, metacriticism, and reception history can be part of a collective vision for the future of the field.
This collection of essays focuses more specifically on critical questions surrounding the construction of ancient Israel(s), ‘minimalism’, the ongoing significance of lexicography, the development of early Judaism, orientalism, and the use of the Bible in contemporary political discourses. Contributors include John van Seters, Niels Peter Lemche, Ingrid Hjelm, and Philip R. Davies.
