Many of you may have seen the invitation for a dinner of biblical bloggers on Sunday night November 21st, at SBL- Atlanta, here for example. I can’t make that, but will make reservations for anyone who RSVPs, for lunch on Monday November 22nd, at the SEAR restaurant in the Marriott Marquis at 11:45 am. The lunch will set you back about 15 dollars give or take. Go here for the menu. After lunch, of course, we will be heading to the SBL Blogger and Online Publication Section, 1:00-3:30 pm in Room: A702 - Marriott Marquis.The lineup of presenters is top-notch: James Davila, Christian Brady, Michael Barber, James McGrath, and Robert Cargill.
I will look into a private dining room space at the SEAR on arrival. More than a dozen bloggers have expressed interest so far. The following blogs and sites are down as definite yes’s as of this morning.
מטאטא השמד - Daniel O. Mcclellan (if he doesn’t bring the broom with him, I’ll be disappointed)
Tolle lege - Rob Kashow
NT History blog - Bill Heroman
Targuman – Christian Brady
The Online Critical Pseudepigrapha – Ken Penner
C. Orthodoxy – Ken Brown (who is off to Goettingen, a favorite spot of mine)
כל האדם - Joseph Kelly
Ralph the Sacred River – Ed Cook
Midrash, etc. – Carl Kinbar
Scotteriology – Scott Bailey
Randall Buth points out that a bunch of Hebraists will be conversing in biblical Hebrew in the time slot – I regret the scheduling conflict.
