Do check out the new blog by David Melvin, cleverly entitled byt dwd. David is a colleague of mine at Baylor in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Ph.D. program (he’s one year behind me). He is very much interested in matters pertaining to the ancient Near East (which makes he and I great dialogue partners . . . . wink).
So far he only has one post, and I can already sense his pessimistic optimism at maintaining the blog. But, if he does indeed maintain it, it should be some good stuff. Check out his “about” page for all the information fit to print (and ask me for all the info NOT fit to print about this character!). I’m also a bit curious as to the title of his blog: Jewish gentile. Hey, I thought that was me!!!
Do give him a look.
