I have not yet had the opportunity to read fellow biblioblogger John Anderson’s new book (for which I offer him congratulations on its publication!), Jacob and the Divine Trickster: A Theology of Deception and Yhwh’s Fidelity to the Ancestral Promise in the Jacob Cycle, published by Eisenbrauns. But I thought I should mention it anyway, for several reasons. First, he asked me to. But second, this being a book published by a biblioblogger this month, and this being the site for this month’s Biblical studies carnival (of which the first installment has been posted here, in case you missed it), it seems appropriate to mention it and to say that anyone else who has published something this month is welcome to blog about it and get it included in the Biblical studies carnival.
Perhaps John himself will chime in – if only to clarify that any views expressed by me on this blog, even in a post highlighting his book, are in no way endorsed by him! 🙂
