This is not a list for airing theological viewpoints, Jewish, Christian, or
Muslim, fundamentalist, evangelical, Orthodox or otherwise.
It is a list for the scholarly discussion of the Hebrew Bible, and I hope it
remains so.
However, at times Biblical Hebrew does sink into disputation. For this
reason, some of my coleagues refuse to subscribe to this list, preferring
the ANE List instead, where the moderator makes short shrift of anyone who
dares preach his faith to the academic community.
It might be a good idea to adopt such a policy on this list as well.
