Philips GoGear ViBE 4GB MP3 Player - Blue by Philips

I bought this three months ago; treated it well; had no accidents with it (unlike the poor creative zen I put through the washing machine in my jeans pocket); but yesterday it died. It won't charge at all, despite many hours connected to my PC. I can still transfer music onto it, but that's not much use when it can't hold a charge. I still have a small hope that a firmware upgrade might help, but frankly I expect an MP3 player to go more than three months without drastic intervention. I'm not impressed.

What Did the Biblical Writers Know by Dever

Oh dear. This book does not even begin to answer the question it poses on its cover. Unfortunately, instead of answering that question, the author engages in an extended rant against other scholars in different field over issues he doesn't appear to understand.

If you want to find out what the biblical writers knew and when they knew it, there are plenty of good introductions to biblical studies. This isn't one of them.
