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! 🙂

Announcement: Two Articles Passed the Double-Blind Peer-Reviews

A year after the defense of my dissertation.

5 months after the tutorial I led.

Another semester has just gone by.

A tiny update from me to you: Two of my articles have passed the double-blind peer-reviews (abstracts can be found in my academia.edu).

They are accepted by two good academic journals.

ZAWThe first one is called Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft (European Science Foundation Ranking A). Here is the link to the journal’s website:

So if any of you has some new ideas about the scholarly research of any parts of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, you can just write it down, and email the editors for a peer-review. Don’t worry, they accept articles written in not only German, but also English and French.

RdQ104The second one is called Revue de Qumran (European Science Foundation Ranking A). Here is the journal’s beautiful website:

Again if any of you has some new ideas about the scholarly research of any parts of the Dead Sea Scrolls, just send your articles to the editors for a peer-review.  Articles in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish are welcome.

If the information provided by the editors is correct, my articles will be in print in December 2015. Of course, I will then make proper thanks to the kind and friendly people who have not given up on me and have helped in the improvements of my articles 😀
