Giants of the Bible and their Reception – A new blog

I confess that I have a bit of an odd hobby on the side – monitoring the reception and effect of biblical Giants in contemporary culture. It’s a bigger topic than you might at first imagine.

For all those with similar interests, I’m now publishing occasional notices about biblical Giants – Goliath, King Og, the Rephaim, the Nephilim, the Anakim, etc (yes, the usual suspects) – at this new, and admittedly fairly arcane, blog:

Remnant of Giants

The first item of biblio-gigantological interest is the rumor of an upcoming film adaptation of David and Goliath, to be directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose).

One Response to Giants of the Bible and their Reception – A new blog

  1. Tom Derrickson says:

    As a Christian, I always enjoy films with Biblical themes and characters. Although we share the same last name, I don’t know if we are related. I live in Michigan but my ancestors spent most of the last two centuries in Indiana and on the east coast prior to the War of 1812. I have a son who graduated from Calvin College and is currently serving as a USAF doctor in Afghanistan. Good luck with your new project.
