Recently Notre Dame held a conference entitled “My Ways are Not Your Ways: The Character of the God of the Hebrew Bible.” Regular readers of this blog will be well aware that this topic is right up the alley. Actually, it defines a large bit of my research interests. In talking with my former Duke professor James Crenshaw, he made me aware that these papers are planned to be published with Oxford University Press, and so I set myself up to have to wait until their publication. Now, however, I am glad I will no longer have to wait but can rather hear and watch the conference proceedings from the comfort of my office!
