Just a note that I’m back after a week of conferences. Among the organizations holding meetings this past week were the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), the Near East Archaeological Society (NEAS), the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), the Institute for Biblical Research (IBR), and the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS). Then Thanksgiving was upon us (hope you all enjoyed the day). I’ll soon get back to blogging.

I managed to start my review of Redfern’s book, so that is imminent.
