It would be interesting to do a book club with an excerpt of the Bible as the subject matter... if you could give some cultural/historical context (as here) and recommend a particular translation and specific section of the Bible -- and then I could get some people together. A blog post might focus on comparative translations, short related works (contemporary or historical) and salient contemporary foci for a discussion. "Amos and Economic Justice" is of interest to me as is, e.g., the subject of apocalyptic consciousness in the Bible and in the work of other Christian writers through history.

Hi, George, I think that's a great idea. I'd be happy to help make such an event possible, and would be glad to do additional research and post something onto my blog to start the conversation. Let's talk! Jon
