Do not wait for the poem;

run with the poem and then write the poem."


Juan Felipe Herrera

Poet Laureate of the United States

Journal of the Week: Israel Exploration Journal is featured this week. It is published twice a year by the Israel Exploration Society and the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University. Subject matter includes archeological research, as well as the history and geography of Israel and the surrounding areas. The journal is indexed in ATLA Religion Databases with ATLASerials, but not available in full text. However, Phillips Library has the journal in hard copy from 1950 to the present. Articles are fully illustrated, often with color images.


A few article titles from the current issue include, “Plant Imprints on Pottery Reveal Fig Tree in Hellenistic Jerusalem,” “A Note on Sixth-Century BCE Phoenician Chalice-Shaped Vessels from Judah,” and “A Hebrew Seal and an Ostracon from Tel Hebron,” all color illustrated.

Ebook of the Week: 

Race, Religion, and Resilience in the Neoliberal Age by Cedric C. Johnson.

"This book presents a study of the rise of American neoliberalism in the aftermath of the modern Civil Rights movement, with particular attention given to the traumatic impact of the neoliberal age on countless African Americans. It also examines forms of black religiosity that function as modes of soul care in this context." Synopsis from the publisher.
