New Online Journal

(I forward the following notice of a new online review journal that will be of interest to all readers):
The Enoch Seminar, an academic association of specialists in the field of
Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins since 2001, has developed its
website into an online Journal, Enoch Seminar Online (ESO), where
subscribers have complete access to all papers presented at the meetings of
the Enoch Seminar. A new open access feature has now been added, an online
book review service, Reviews of the Enoch Seminar (RES). The primary aim of
RES is to publish timely book reviews of current scholarship on Jews and
Christians in antiquity, with a particular interest in Jewish and Christian
history, literature, and culture between the Babylonian Exile and the
Bar-Kokhba revolt. The advantage of our digital, online format includes the
capacity to streamline reviews quickly from composition to publication,
providing timely access to reviews of some of the latest, cutting-edge
research in the field. The comment feature has the added potential of
transforming the typically static book review into a stimulant for ongoing
intellectual conversation. We warmly invite you to browse our web page at
the link above, peruse the current reviews posted, and to consider
contributing to this exciting new intellectual venture. You may also find
the initial batch of published e-reviews at the following links:
