I just received my copy of Mark S. Smith’s new Fortress Press book The Priestly Vision of Genesis 1 which Jim West announced in August. For the record, I bought it myself. Perhaps with my newly earned position of #28 in the Biblioblogs Top 50 for October (up 127 places from last month), I will be able to convince some publishers to send me review copies of books to discuss on my blog (feel free to contact me for a mailing address!).
I am looking forward to reading this book. I only want to note right now that this is truly a Mark Smith book: the text itself ends on page 159 and the appendices, endnotes, and indices take up pages 161-315. Since the book has a 2010 copyright, I feel like I am reading the future!
