As Yogi Berra once said, "the future ain't what it used to be" ... and I think it is also safe to say that the past ain't what it's gonna be! Thanks for the encouragement.
I'm revisiting the early Patriarchal period at the moment. I've got a new way of looking at this history that is very exciting. Basically, it involves looking at the 12 sons of Jacob and their blessings (Genesis 49) and applying them to the 12 leading deities of the ancient world. It leads to some rather stunning insights. I am writing up the findings now.
