I'm starting a scripture class this semester that focuses heavily on lectures and writings by Paul Nadim Tarazi, an Orthodox scripture scholar. He's clearly very knowledgeable about the cultural and linguistic contexts of the Old Testament books, but I have to say I'm not really sure what to make of his take on the Old Testament in terms of history. If any of you are familiar with Tarazi, I'd be interested in your impressions.
BTW, I'm trying to decide whether I should retire the blog. I just am not finding much to inspire me these days.
