There will be no physical SBL (Society of Biblical Literature) this year, which means no book booths, which means … we professors all grieve over not seeing the new offerings and bump into friends and foes in the pathways in the exhibit hall.

So, I wrote to some publishers and asked them to give me a short list of their new offerings.

Each day this week I will feature one publisher.

Today, we visit the booth at Eerdmans, but this year no milk chocolate!
