Dear Yaakov,

It appears from several reports that many theories about the early monarchy will
definitely need to be revised considering what evidence has already appeared.
But more information will definitely be forthcoming.

According to John Hobbins at Ancient Hebrew Poetry,

    "I note that minimalists are already framing the debate without regard to
the evidence in hand, but in relation to those they love to hate, i.e., the
maximalists. For its part, the evidence does not confirm maximalism. However, it
disconfirms a series of theses minimalists have touted for decades. This is a
very important discovery. As I've suggested before, minimalism will go down in
the annals of scholarship as a classic case of over-reach."

Rev. Bryant J. Williams III
