- We are very pleased to announce that Ian Young, Robert Rezetko, and
Martin Ehrensvärd will be our guests on the Biblical Studies List
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/biblical-studies> July 20- August 2
discussing their work on linguistic dating of Biblical texts. Their
forthcoming volumes on the subject, mentioned the other day
are due out in the Fall. In preparation for the 'colloquium' the
authors will put together a substantial summary of their position for
the benefit of the list members and post it at the outset.
Questions will be vetted by list moderators and then the triumvirate
will consult and respond.
It should be an excellent discussion and informative to boot. You are
invited to participate if you wish.

- I am exceedingly pleased to announce that, following our colloquia with
Jodi Magness and Avraham Faust, Eric Meyers of Duke University will be
our guest on the biblical studies list
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/biblical-studies/> to discuss his new
volume, 'Alexander to Constantine
/Drawing on the most recent, groundbreaking archaeological research,
Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey re-narrate the history of ancient
Palestine in this richly illustrated and expertly integrated book.
Spanning from the conquest of Alexander the Great in the fourth century
BCE until the reign of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth
century CE, they synthesize archaeological evidence with ancient
literary sources (including the Bible) to offer a sustained overview of
the tumultuous intellectual and religious changes that impacted world
history during the Greco-Roman period./
Professor Meyers will be joining us January 13-20, 2013. This will
surely give those interested in taking part opportunity to get a copy of
the book and fully digest it.
