(1) The new co-blogger is Dr. Brand Pitre. Joel and I met Brand at SBL in D.C. last November and we had a great time chatting about stuff. Also, Brand is the author of Jesus, the Tribulation, and the End of Exile which is a good read and it is so close to my own Ph.D thesis at times that it is almost scary how similar Brand and I are on some issues.
(2) Michael Barber reports that She Said Yes meaning that Michael and Kim are getting married. Scot Hahn told me what a lovely girl Kim is and it is our hope that they are very happy together.
