Vridar No Longer Available

I was in the process of writing a response to Neil Godfrey’s latest accusation against me, when Joel Watts drew my attention to the fact that his blog Vridar has apparently been shut down by WordPress: I hope this is not the result of someone who finds the content on the blog objectionable making a [Read More...]

Upcoming Blog Tour: When God Spoke Greek

Brian Le Port and Abram Kielsmeier-Jones blogged about a blog tour that I’ll also be participating in, and so I will simply quote Abram here: …I’ll be joining a group of bloggers in reviewing Timothy Michael Law‘s forthcoming When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible. Brian LePort at Near Emmaus is hosting. Here is [Read More...]

Sharing Links to Other Blogs and News

I have long had a widget in my sidebar that shared links to interesting posts and news items elsewhere. Unfortunately, that widget seems to be causing the blog to load very slowly, resulting in error messages and other frustrating experiences for readers. I hope to find a widget that will work without such side-effects, but [Read More...]

Only a Game: Religion in Science Fiction

Today Chris Bateman reposted a link to a post about religion in Doctor Who that previously appeared on the blog Only a Game.

Blog Issues

As regular readers have presumably already noticed, there are some hiccups with this blog at the moment which are beyond my control. There seems to be a workaround – if you type “cp” in place of “www” in the URL of a page address, you should be able to get there. Commenting works OK. But [Read More...]

Exploring Our Matrix 3.5

I want to let blog readers know that Patheos will be upgrading its website – including blogs – tomorrow, Saturday, May 17th. I won’t be able to post new content between 8am and 8pm. I really hope they have everything working again in time for me to blog about the Doctor Who season finale, “The Name [Read More...]

James D. G. Dunn Blog

I learned today that there is a WordPress site for James D. G. Dunn. Jimmy Dunn supervised my PhD research, and is indisputably one of the top New Testament scholars of recent decades. I have not asked Jimmy whether the site was created by him and is thus official, but even if it isn't, it [Read More...]

Candida Moss – Blogging Non-Blogger

You may have already heard the news: Candida Moss has a blog. One of the first things she says on it is that she isn't a blogger. I'm not sure how to make logical sense of that, but we will all surely want to follow her blog to find out! Welcome, Candida, to the blogosphere! [Read More...]
