Read it here in Bible and Interpretation. You’ll enjoy it.
When he called Israel Finkelstein a minimalist! HA! Either Stephen isn’t familiar with minimalists or he hasn’t read much of Finkelstein!!! Finkelstein can HARDLY be called a minimalist. Rather than reading Bolen’s take on Finkelstein’s essay Stephen would be better served to read Finkelstein’s work for himself. And a lot of it.
[NB- I like Stephen. He’s just wrong with his label of I.F.]
