Enoch Seminar review of Satlow's "How the Bible Became Holy"
Isaac Oliver de Oliveira has pointed out a review of Michael Satlow's How the Bible Became Holy, for the Enoch Seminar. Gregory Paulson's review of Satlow is fairly critical of his treatment of the Christian literature, which follows on Ron Hendel's critical review focusing on the treatment of the Septuagint and Qumran materials. I have not read the book myself, but many of the quotes and conclusions cited in the reviews do seem somewhat overstated. Have any others read the book?
