A Word about Book Reviews
Recently, SBL has decided to put all their book reviews behind a pay wall. That is, one now has to join SBL in order to read the reviews. Normally, I don't link to any articles that are behind a subscription wall. I try to link to articles and books that are public access. However, I won't be removing the links because it would be too much trouble (and SBL may change their mind). Personally, I don't think it is a good move. It's not like book reviews are original research and they give exposure to the books that scholars are writing. But I don't have any control over the matter.
