SBL Forum: Ancient Texts, Google Books, and Wikis

10th November 2006

The November edition of the SBL Forum is online. It includes articles on the biblical manuscript exhibition at the Smithsonian (as well as a review of the exhibition), an article exploring the benefits of Google Book, as well as number of articles on the value of Wikis for biblical studies (Noteworthy in this regard is Kevin Wilson’s notice on the Blue Cord Bible Dictionary). And instead of “Snakes on a Plane,” it offers “Bible Scholars on a Plane” (Gee, I wonder what is more terrifying!?). And there is even more, so make sure to check it out!

On a side note, does anyone know if previous forums are listed anywhere on the SBL site? It appears that once the new forum is posted, no index of the previous forums are available.
