Reflections on SBL

I had a great time in San Diego. It was a chance to catch up with old friends like John Byron, Mike Bird, Andrew Das, Allan Bevere, Dave Capes and Mike Gorman and to take in some lively sessions that featured the likes of Ross Wagner, Francis Watson, John Barclay, N.T. Wright and John Goldingay.

Moreover, I had the opportunity to take in the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Natural History Museum and the San Diego Zoo. Wow, what a treat these two places were! Well worth the time and the expense.

The book stalls, the receptions and the IBR meetings were the other highlights.

My head is still swimming and I hope to write more anon concerning some of my observations while there.
