First of all, a detail that Emeritus Professor Philip Davies fails to note in his recent (September 2009) op-ed. The op-ed is a Readers Digest version of an article he wrote 15 years ago, “The Bible and the Old Testament” in The Bible in Ethics: The Second Sheffield Colloquium (ed. John William Rogerson and Margaret Davies; LHB/OTS; JSOTSup 207; London: Continuum, 1995) 164-173. The article, of course, has more substance than the op-ed. Below the jump, a commentated roundup of online discussion.
