When I first began studying the Bible, I was not very interested in the geographical elements in the text. But the more time I have spent in the Scriptures, the more I have come to appreciate how the geography is part of its story. So I was happy to see Kelsa Graybill explaining five ways that biblical geography shapes our view of God's mission here.

I am very interested in how the issue of Mosaic Law relates to the Christian. So, I was happy to see Thomas Willoughby's article "Does Leviticus 18 Apply to New Testament Believers?" (here). Unfortunately, the question in the title is barely addressed and concludes with something like believers should be aware and concerned about issues of sexual ethics. I don't think that this conclusion is altogether insightful or helpful.
