New Currents in Biblical Research

Thanks to Ekaterini G. Tsalampouni for announcing that Currents in Biblical Research has a  new issue out.  CBR is one of my favorite journals – so useful for summarizing often decades of research in a given area.  What a great resource!  I usually enjoy reading at least one article per issue.

In this new issue, Henry Nguyen summarizes ‘The Quest for the Cinematic Jesus: Scholarly Explorations in Jesus Films’, Michael Naylor looks at ‘The Roman Imperial Cult and Revelation’, and James B. Rives considers ‘Greco-Roman Religion in the Roman Empire: Old Assumptions and New Approaches’.  A good diverse group of articles (and there are more I did not mention) as well as very timely subjects for NT studies.

December 2009 Expository Times (and my review)

The latest Expository Times is now online here. Nothing really to write home about here in terms of articles.  There are always lots of good reviews, though.  One of my favorite NT Scholars, Steve Walton, has a review in there.  And my own review of Wayne Meeks and John Fitzgeralds revised and updated The Writings of St. Paul also appears in this issue.  Enjoy!
