My good friend and fellow scholar and clergy member Dr. Richard Wright has started a new(ish) blog with Greek and Hebrew resources following the Lectionary, Plenum creaturis. Rick has provided notes on the Hebrew (Aramaic) and Greek texts assigned for the given week based upon the Revised Common Lectionary. It is well worth looking at and a great help for those whose seminary training included little language instruction. This should be on every preacher’s blogroll […]
I will be presenting in the Blogger and Online Publication session this year. It should be a fun and informative session. My presentation will be a bit more organic, or really, about the organic process of how my blog has developed over the last dozen years. The Life of a Blog from Cradle to Maturity (?) When I began blogging over 12 years ago I initially tried to create a focused blog, two actually, one for […]
Jim West has the “the Avignonian Papacy Edition” of the Biblical Studies Carnival for July. I am not sure where the official one is (I will be happy to post it if someone will direct me to it). It was kind of Jim to highlight my post on “The Experience of God.” Sadly, such posts and contemplations are still relevant. I heard from a close friend just two nights ago that on a church outing […]
To all those who enjoy the Biblical Studies Carnivals and care what is represented in them I encourage you to go over to Daniel McClellan’s site and post or email him your suggestions. I may send some links, but I won’t be hosting any more carnivals. I know this topic has come up in the past and I want to emphasize that I am not doing this in a huff or out of anger (although […]
UPDATE: J. K. Gayle has offered some additional links specifically from women bloggers. (I will more fully incorporate them into the blog when I return from vac and have access to a computer. Back so see the bottom of the post for her links, but be sure to visit her blog as well for comments there.) [Folks, I have worked on this for the last two days, I even have LOTS more links, but I […]
The Rev. Dr. Jim just reminded me that I am on deck for this month’s Biblical Studies Carnival. Help! I readily admit that right now I am swamped and I have not been keeping up with the blogs. Even if I had, my reading habits are different and narrower than others, so please let me know what you have enjoyed or been irritated by this month. Post it in the comments or directly email it […]
I am late in noting the latest Biblioblogging Carnival, a sin which is all the more egregious because there is a kind mention of this blog, stating that my call for an end to endnotes “the most relevant, inspired, and insightful post of the year.” Thank you. Thank you very much. Now let’s march people! No more endnotes! Biblioblogging Carnival – Unsettled Edition As promised, this is the best, the absolute best, Carnival. Ever. You […]
Being the end of the month (or now the beginning of the new month) we have our monthly Biblical Studies Carnival and Top 50 blogs listing. Doug Chaplin aka clayboy did an excellent job with this month’s Carnival. This month I moved back into the Top 50 biblioblogs after a brief hiatus (not posting is an excellent way to drop down the ranks).
Although Targuman was not worthy of mention last month (although I did rise 4 spots on the Top 50 Biblioblogs! You love me! You really love me!) it is worth noting that Dr. Jim West has posted the BS Carnival for November, number ex ex ex vee eye. Read it now (or he will baptise Chris Tilling via immersion until legion departs from his quivering body).
