Announcement: Forthcoming Flood Paper and Cherubic Piece

My journal article entitled “The Flood Narratives in Gen 6-9 and Darren Aronofsky’s Film Noah” has passed the double-blind peer review! It will be published in Old Testament Essays (South Africa-based).

Here is an excerpt of the first anonymous reviewer’s comment:

 …what I liked most is the literary theological themes the paper managed to develop in conjunction with sound historical research.

According to the second anonymous reviewer,

The article represents a good mix between Old Testament scholarship and engagement with popular culture.

A rudimentary idea of the forthcoming article was first posted on my personal blog under the title “Noah Within and Beyond the Bible” on 19.04.2014. Of course, the in-press article contains many more content/language corrections and updated references. So, remember to check out the journal when the flood paper comes out! 🙂

My journal article entitled ” ‘You Were the (Divine) Cherub’: A Challenge to YHWH’s Sole Divinity in Ezek 28:14″ passed the double-blind peer review at the end of last year. It will be published in the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament (United Kingdom-based). The anonymous reviewer suggests some areas for further improvements but made this overall assessment:

This is a very good article. It is scholarly, clear, well-structured and makes a persuasive case on a difficult adn controversial text.

If the information provided by the editor is correct, my cherubic piece will come out at the end of this year. Stay tuned! 🙂
