VanderKam elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

CONGRATULATIONS TO JAMES VANDERKAM: Notre Dame scholar of Dead Sea Scrolls elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences. HT Joseph Lauer.

One element of Professor VanderKam's multifacted work is new to me:

His next book, R.H. Charles: A Biography, will be published soon by Oxford University Press. Charles, a 19th- and 20th-century Irish biblical scholar who worked extensively on the Book of Jubilees, is one of VanderKam’s academic heroes.
Mine too. Old Testament Pseudepigrapha: More Canonical Scriptures volume 1 (MOTP1) was co-dedicated to Charles, on whom more here and links and here. I am looking forward to this biography.

And again, congratulations to Jim VanderKam for this much-merited honor.
