Another day at the computer

It would seem that I may have finished the assignment that my Professor gave me for this week. At least, I think I have done a pretty good job putting together what he wants from me. It is a start at any rate. If I understood him properly, he wanted me to write a literary history of the Book of Kings. That doesn’t sound too hard, but it is probably one of the most discussed topics in the last 50 years of Old Testament research. At any rate, I have my plan ironed out a bit, and it isn’t looking too shabby. Now I just have to get some more of the individual pericopes analyzed and it should be all good. The dissertation will be able to finish itself.

Realizing now that that previous paragraph makes it sound like I got lots of work done today, I need to edit what I said above. Basically, this morning I got a few hours of work in. And another couple this afternoon/evening. For the greater part of the day I was shopping and relaxing with Anja, now that she is back again. I picked up some new movies and we are going to watch one or two tonight (most likely Batman Begins, which I’ve never seen in English and Anja has never seen). Now I am about to head downstairs and get dinner ready so that we can enjoy that while we watch the film.

Today, I also thought that I would recommend some literature for people who may want to get an overview of how I spend my life. Today’s recommended book is The So-Called Deuteronomistic History by Thomas Römer. This book provides a pretty good overview of the weird stuff that I do all day. I hope that you enjoy it.

More in the coming days…
