Emergency call for BIblical Studies Carnival

Tyler Williams just sent an email calling for urgent help with this month’s Biblical Studies Carnival. It seems that the person assigned is unable to do it and Tyler needs articles submitted.

Quick Look Folder and Zip plugins

This is brilliant! Quick Look Folder and Zip plugins Filed under: OS, Freeware, Leopard Quick Look is a beautiful thing, and in my view practically itself worth the cost of admission to Leopard. Unfortunately, the more you get used to it, the more annoying it is when you get to a file format that Quick Look doesn’t support. Fortunately, Apple was smart enough to design Quick Look with an open architecture that allows developers to […]

Here, then, is the canonical list of bibliobloggers who gathered this year: Kevin A. Wilson – Blue Cord Ben Myers – Faith and Theology Kevin Scull – Novum Testamentum Brandon Wason […]
