New editor

Eisenbrauns has hired a new editor, John Cook. He will start after the new year, but this announcement was made today in BookNews, since he will be at AAR/SBL this week handing out business cards:

We are pleased to announce that Dr. John A. Cook (Ph.D., Hebrew and Semitic Studies, Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison) will be joining the Eisenbrauns publications team as editor after January 1, 2006. We're delighted in this addition to our staff and believe that John will bring a wealth of skills and will provide significant additional direction for the future of our publication program. John will be attending the AAR/SBL meetings in Philadelphia; thus, even though he will not be formally joining us at Eisenbrauns until after the first of the New Year, we invite you to greet him and welcome him to the Eisenbrauns staff.

Jim Eisenbraun, Publisher and President

I am looking forward to him working with us. He comes with excellent qualifications: he is a bicyclist married to a Canadian (my son-in-law is Canadian). What more could you ask for?
