Reviews of Amos: Hypertext Bible Commentary
At last there are a number of reviews available of my Amos: Hypertext Bible Commentary, so I have begun collecting extracts and (where permission is given) the whole of short reviews on a reviews page
on the project site
. Naturally the extracts are chosen to represent the favourable bits ;-) though since usually this is either the introduction or conclusion this does not seem unfair!
I intend when I have time to reflect (some months away probably - maybe at the start of my sabbatical :) to respond to some of the negative comments and the suggestions reviewers have made. Some of these should lead to significant improvements in the conception of future volumes. That was one reason for sending out review copies of a work that was already available online, to get the academic "system" involved in improving the concept.
So, if you are a reviewer and I have not yet emailed you, expect some contact after the end of this year.
By the way the reviews I am currently aware of are:
- R.E. Clements in John Day (ed.), Society for Old Testament Study Book List 2007, London: Sage, 2007, 70.
- Joan Ferrer, Butlletí de l’Associació Bíblica de Catalunya 93: Sept 2006, 56.
- Knut Holter, BOTSA Electronic Forum [http://www.mhs.no/article_547.shtml] (2006).
- James R. Linville, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 69, 2007, 316-318.
- Ehud Ben Zvi, Review of Biblical Literature [http://www.bookreviews.org] (2007).
- International Review of Biblical Studies 52, 2005-2006, 162.
If you know of reviews that I have not listed please let me know!
