I came across a great new email discussion list that I promptly joined this morning called The Biblicalist.
If you’re a student of the Hebrew or Christian Bible, it looks like a fantastic resource. This isn’t for everyone, but could grow to become something very valuable…
biblicalist : The Biblicalist: “Welcome to The Biblicalist, a biblical studies list of academic emphasis open to all who wish to approach the Bible in its wider context, past and present. All viewpoints and perspectives which draw on the work of scholars in biblical studies and cognate disciplines are welcome.
Topics of discussion include the interpretation of particular texts of the Bible and related literature, the background of ancient Near Eastern and Classical cultures, theological and philosophical reflections on relevant issues, and the Bible in art and literature, including the reception of the Bible from ancient times to the present. “
