There Has Been A First Class

pissing contest going on between Hershel Shanks and the Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR) and a number of scholars. One of these, Joe Zias, fires back.

For years, BAR has promoted itself as having championed the interests of the Dead Sea Scrolls; in fact, Shanks continually presents himself as “liberating the scrolls from a handful of scholars and making them available to all scholars. The opposite is true.”
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
