September 2011 Biblical Studies Carnival Episode III: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

Episode III of the Biblical Studies Carnival is coming soon, and its theme will be…well, since almost no one expressed any interest in offering their opinion about what the theme should be, the theme will be a surprise, and thus inevitably something that I will like and no one else will. But I will ask [Read More...]

September 2011 Biblical Studies Carnival – Early Edition

Here is a carnival featuring the posts from the first half of this month. I have tried [Read More...]

An Appeal To The Biblioblogging Community

To the biblioblogging community, As I will be hosting the Biblical Studies Carnival at the start of next month with its round-up of posts from this month, you might be expecting me to remind you of this fact and ask you to submit posts. That is not why I am writing. I am writing to [Read More...]

Biblioblog Rankings for July 2011 (and Peer Review in the Biblioblogosphere)

Steve Caruso has posted this month’s biblioblog rankings. The top biblioblog this month was Debunking Christianity, which demonstrated its character as a biblioblog by tackling the topic of the historical Jesus (among other things), doing its part to spread a mainstream scholarly approach among atheists, some of whom find mythicism attractive. Exploring Our Matrix came [Read More...]

Last-Minute Lighthearted Biblioblog Pandering

Not Born This Liberal: Further Thoughts on Inerrancy

I think it is hilarious that Mike Bird referred to me as the “Lady Gaga of the biblioblogosphere.” But if I’m a Liberal/Progressive Christian, it isn’t because I was “born this way.” The views I now hold are ones that it took me a while to reach, and while I wasn’t born into conservative Evangelicalism [Read More...]

Vote for Your Favorite Biblioblog!

Everyone has presumably heard by now that Unsettled Christianity is the new #1 in the biblioblogosphere, as far as Alexa ranking is concerned. Sadly, the Alexa ranking system cannot differentiate blogs that share a domain, as those at Patheos do, and so this may well be my last time in the top 50. But you [Read More...]
