Eisenbrauns at http://www.eisenbrauns.com is - as far as I know -
the leading bookseller in the field of ancient studies and I
subscribe to their newsletter which I highly recommend to everyone.
As an example, the following newsletter just came in....
But one preliminary comment....
If we compare any science to a tree, the trunk to its main
foundation, the branches to its main hypotheses and its leaves to
the detail questions - mainstream science is fairly good at doing
the detail work - indeed, in this context, most scientists are "leaf
people". When we attack mainstream science, we are looking to see if
the "branches" of the tree are healthy, which in many cases they are
not, and indeed, to see if the trunk is naught but a stump,
indicating that this or that tree need to be planted anew. Very few
scientists are "branch people" and a true "trunk person" only
appears about once a century.
The following articles are all "leafy".
