  1. Far be it from me to seem to be supporting the Ranter, but I’m glad that at least somebody is posting about Bible Secrets Revealed. It’s almost as if there’s a Tyndale-like conspiracy of silence about this much-touted series — especially from bibliobloggers who were previously promoting it!

  2. West rants a lot about anything in OT scholarship that doesn’t fit in with his buddies’ minimalist presuppositions, but he won’t lift a finger (even when asked to do so) to explain *why* he or anyone should accept those presuppositions. (When I challenged him on this in the comments section — as I used to do — he simply refused to allow my comment to post, and then went on as if non-minimalists somehow have the burden of proof.)
