I recently found out that my absolute favorite historian/Bible scholar, Dr. Ben Witherington III has a blog! He is highly respected in both the academic and evangelical arenas. My UCLA prof had us read many of his books, and always recommended him as a resource for papers. I am currently reading Women in the Earliest Churches (a great scholarly read) while Women in the Ministry of Jesus and The Gospel of Mark: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary sit on my desk for future reads. Enjoy!
