Now in Print: _The Family in LIfe and in Death_

Now in Print: The volume on the Family in Ancient Israel edited by Patricia Dutcher-Walls (click here) that I mentioned in a post back in January of this year (click here). The volume stems out of a series of SBL sessions done jointly with ASOR on sociological and archaeological perspectives on Israelite families in life and in death. I'm very pleased to have one of the essays in here.

My Review of _Approaching Yehud_, edited by Jon L. Berquist

Now In Print
Just received in the mail the latest issue (Vol. 71, No. 3) of the Catholic Biblical Quarterly, and it contains a book review I wrote of a collection of essays reflecting the latest scholarly thinking on the postexilic, Persian period of Israelite history. Take a look if you have a chance; comments welcome!
