For me, a large part of the SBL meeting is always the book exhibit. It is a remarkably intimidating sight, but I always enjoy perusing the various booths over and over, planning my purchases just right.
Because of dissertation work, I have already purchased many of the volumes I had intended to buy at the meeting. I honestly am not certain what specifically I will be buying. I do have a few volumes on Genesis I will be keeping an eye out for, specifically if they are well priced. Those volumes are as follows:
Victor Hamilton, Genesis 18-50. NICOT. Eerdmans.
Brenner, Lee, Yee, Genesis. Texts @ Contexts. Fortress.
James Crenshaw, Defending God. Oxford.
Gunkel, Genesis. Mercer.
James McKeown, Genesis. Eerdmans.
von Rad, Genesis. WJK.
Gordan Wenham, Genesis 16-50. WBC.
These are a few things I am interested in . . . mostly ‘older’ things. I have every confidence I will find several things at the booths of which I am not even aware that I will end up getting.
So, what books are on your list to get at SBL?
