On Hypotyposeis, Stephen Carlson mentions a new blog by Suzanne McCarthy:


The name is explained in Lady Powerscourt I. The blog looks likely to be touching on issues of interest to academic Biblical scholarship, and more besides.

This is off topic. I just finished reading "The Beginning of the Gospel" by Adela Collins. It is quite good, but her essay on Mark and the empty tomb is quite disturbing. Her conclusions seem very sound and reasonable--that's why it seems so disturbing to me. I thought the empty tomb must be based on some real historical memory, especially since it involves women. But that might not be the case. Have you read this book by any chance, and if so, what are your thoughts?

No, I've not read it yet. Do you have the full bibliographical details? I've just finished reading Dale Allison's Resurrecting Jesus, which you might enjoy if you haven't already seen it.
