SBL’s Bible Odyssey Has Launched (Skinner)

I am on a mini-vacation and Nijay is moving across the country, so it’s safe to say we’ve both been away from our emails the past few days and we may have missed a few things. When I opened up my email a few minutes ago I had received word that SBL’s Bible Odyssey has officially launched. This is a project that has been in the works for several years now and has involved many biblical scholars from across the world. Contributors had a chance to look at the site in advance a few weeks back. I was impressed. The site is attractive, well-organized, and contains many excellent essays.  I should also point out that both Nijay and I are contributors. He wrote the article on women leaders in the Philippian church and I contributed two pieces–one on the Beloved Disciple and one on 1 Corinthians 13 and Weddings. Check out the site when you have a chance. I think it will prove to be a very useful resource for the public.
