These arrived today, Bauckham's by a timely recomendation from Nick Norelli and Meier's by the private generosity of a very attentive friend. I've already scanned Bauckham's thoroughly and expect to love, love, love it. Probably. Mostly. ;-)
Meier's book I'm still trying to resist cracking into, but I know I won't last for long. I loved this review (as I also mentioned last week) and would also LOVE to see one of our FOUR (at least?) bibliobloggers who attended Meier's session at the CBA meetings in Omaha write up some personal thoughts about it. My hopes are probably too high, but I really don't know for sure what I'm expecting. Something amazing, I guess.
On a semi-related note, I've only written three paragraphs on Nazareth in the last two days. But they're good ones. When you see them here, soon, I hope you find them Incredible... but only the good kind of incredible, of course. ;-)
