Blogging SBL: The Books!

These are the books I came away from SBL 2009 with:


Jon D. Levenson, The Death and Resurrection of the Beloved Son: The Transformation of Child Sacrifice in Judaism and Christianity (Yale)

Gordon Wenham, Genesis 16-50. Word Biblical Commentary.

Hermann Gunkel, Genesis (Mercer). (I got this for $15!!!  It sells for upwards of $60 new.  Thanks Mercer!).


Freebies (from publishers, professors, and friends):

Brian Webster, The Cambridge Introduction to Biblical Hebrew (Thanks Mike W!).

Laurence Turner, Genesis. Readings Commentary (Sheffield Phoenix; thanks Dr. Turner!).

Mike Bird, Crossing Over Sea and Land: Jewish Missionary Activity in the Second Temple Period (Hendrickson; thanks Bobby K!).


In the Mail:

I also returned home from SBL to find I had received my copy of James Barr’s The Concept of Biblical Theology.  So far Barr is quite the deconstructionist . . . it is a shame he passed away before he could finish his more constructive piece.
