SBLAARggers Gathering

Brian Le Port posted about the annual bibliobloggers' gathering for this year's SBL and AAR annual meeting in Baltimore. I think that it is high time that we fully included the AAR folks. And so let's start calling it the SBLAARggers Gathering. We agreed in the past that #SBLAAR is a better hashtag to use, [Read More...]

NT Wrong is Back!

The mysterious pseudonymous biblioblogger is back. The post indicating this at the Biblioblog Top 50 blog is elusive, but the comments indicate that an X-Factor biblioblog revolution is afoot…   [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...]

As I will be taking over as chair of the Blogger and Online Publication Society of Biblical Literature program unit, let me highlight this year’s call for papers.

#sblaar Bibliobloggers’ Gathering

The bibliobloggers' gathering last night at Kitty O'Shea's was great, and it included several bloggers who had never attended before, and the “coming out” of one whose identity had previously been obscure (not in the photos below).

2 Jesus’ Wife

The announcement by Karen King about the Coptic fragment which has Jesus mentioning “my wife” is, unsurprisingly, continuing to get much attention and generate much discussion. Rather than keep updating yesterday’s post on the topic, I thought that a follow-up post would be more appropriate, rounding up the blogging and media reporting of the “Gospel [Read More...]

WWJCOB? (What Would Jesus Comment on Blogs?)

I’d like to suggest that, in view of the conference’s reunion with [Read More...]
