Review of Biblical Literature: June 6, 2008

Here are the reviews published on June 6. I am glad to note that my colleague's work is being reviewed, but unfortunately, the reviewer somehow gets her gender wrong (The reviewer refers to Dr Koh as "he" - I guess this can be rather embarrasing at times)
