Stanley Fish Paper Published in Answers Research Journal

Now, would somebody please read this pebble and send me a ripple or two?

In my other life, I am the editor of Faithlife’s Bible Study Magazine, and one of my first acts as editor was to give myself a column: “Word Nerd: Language and the Bible.” They said I could. I also turn all the columns—plus a few that aren’t in print—into YouTube...

    Congrats. I enjoyed hearing you read it last year at the BFS. Was disappointed that BFS never materialized this year. Anyway, great paper!
