Remembering Giovanni Garbini on his Birthday: He Would Have Been 84 Today…

Giovanni Garbini was born on the 8th of October in 1931 and had he lived he would be celebrating today his 84th birthday!  He was a fantastic scholar and one of the nicest people you could ever know.

He has written widely on the subject of the history of Israel and his amazing History and Ideology in Ancient Israel is MUST reading for anyone doing biblical studies. If you read Italian, he has even more amazing things in it.

I especially recommend the fantastically written Il ritorno dall’esilio babilonese.  Now that’s fun reading and stimulating beyond belief. So, to him I wish a very Happy 84th Birthday!  He is missed.
