World-leading gigantologist Dr Brian Doak (George Fox University) has just written an article for Bible & Interpretation entitled, “The Embarassing and Alluring Biblical Giant“.

In the article, he first discusses why biblical scholars are often embarrassed about the giants in the Bible. It has something to do with their embroilment in all sorts of odd speculations and conspiracies. For example, he mentions the long line of misguided writers, including recently Malcolm Gladwell, who have attempted to ‘diagnose’ Goliath’s giant height (a topic also discussed on Remnant of Giants).

Then Brian wonders why the Giant is – hands down – the sexiest topic in biblical studies. He comes up with five good reasons. No, macrophilia is not one of them. Do have a read!
