Interview with Collins and Harlow on Early Judaism

In November Eerdmans released a new book by John J. Collins and Daniel C. Harlow entitled Early Judaism a Comprehensive Overview (Eerdmans, 2012).

Here's the blurb.

Culled from The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism, a monumental, groundbreaking reference work published in late 2010, Early Judaism: A Comprehensive Overview contains fifteen first-rate essays from a diverse group of internationally renowned scholars. This volume provides the most comprehensive and authoritative overview available of Judaism in the Hellenistic and early Roman periods.

Today the Eerdmans blog released a video interview with Collins and Harlow that took place at SBL in Chicago. This looks like a good resource. I already have the Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism (2010), I will need to add this to my collection. 

Here is the video interview.
