I'M WAY BEHIND on noting new articles and journal issues and have intended to catch up when things quieted down. Well, perhaps this afternoon doesn't count as "quiet," but at least it's quiet where I am at the moment. So here are some recent publications.

Review of Jennifer M. Dines, The Septuagint. Edited by M. A. Knibb. Understanding the Bible and Its World. London & New York: T & T Clark, 2004. xvii + 196 pp. Paperback, $25.95. ISBN 0-567-08464 (by Richard S. Hess for the Denver Journal 8, 2005).

A recent issue of Dead Sea Discoveries which I thought I had already noted, but it seems I didn't get around to it. It's issue 12.1, 2005, devoted to the Dead Sea Scrolls and popular culture and edited by Maxine Grossman and Catherine Murphy.
