Free Open Source Old Testament Textbook again

Back in July a bunch of us began (following AKMA’s reply to a Facebook post by Brooke1 ) talking about the possibility of a Free Open Source Old Testament textbook.2

The ideas, of course, were not entirely new ;) There are other scholars, as well as us biblical people, who think of these things, not least in the marketing field ;) So it should have been no surprise that there already exists a specialist publishing house that exists to produce and promote such textbooks.

Flat World Knowledge, I love the name :) Now, should we be pitching the itea of a FOSOTT to them, or what?Any volunteers to write chapters, help edit (for surely a group needs so produce guidelines so that the resulting chapters have some consistency…)
