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
