#1270 Remembering Anson RaineyOn this week’s program we discuss the passing of three remarkable Bible scholars: Anson Rainey, Shemaryahu Talmon, and Cathereine Kroeger. In the weeks ahead we’ll hear more from Rainey and Talmon, via their past interviews on The Book & The Spade. (We’ve already run the Catherine Kroeger interview.)
We also discuss an archaeological perspective on the political upheavals in Egypt and Tunisia, and squeeze in a mention of the resignation of Zahi Hawass.
A column by UCLA professor Bill Schniedewind goes well with this week’s program: http://tinyurl.com/67bo6mw
