Biblical Studies Carnival 69 at Remnant of Giants

As a Doctor Who fan, I was tempted to call this “Carnival of Giants” as a mash-up of two episode titles, “Carnival of Monsters” and “Planet of the Giants.” But even though I didn’t, there is still a giant carnival over at Deane Galbraith’s blog Remnant of Giants. There are some posts from here and [Read More...]

What if This is All there Is? What if I’m not Right?

John Hobbins shared this story which he heard at AAR/SBL in San Francisco, and I thought it was worth passing on (it is apparently a variation on a joke told by Stephen Colbert): A guy commits suicide. And he goes to heaven, which is not what he expected. God greets him there, and the guy [Read More...]

Cylon Resurrection and More from the Last Day #AARSBL #SBLAAR

If you didn’t get a copy of Religion and Science Fiction at AAR/SBL, one of the people you can blame is Jim Linville, who apparently was one of those who snatched up a copy. But when it inspired him to make this LOLcat image, I don’t think anyone can be mad at him, or indeed [Read More...]

Religion and Science Fiction Sold Out at #AARSBL #SBLAAR

Religion and Science Fiction sold out at the AAR/SBL conference, and so the publisher has decided to make the conference discount of 40% off available to anyone who contacts the publisher and indicates that they would have liked to have purchased it with the conference discount but could not because it sold out. I asked, [Read More...]

Bibliobloggers’ Reception and More #AARSBL #SBLAAR

The bibliobloggers’ get-together last night was delightful. It was great to meet some people for the first time, including Brian LePort, whom I did not recognize until he covered the lower part of his face (see the photo on his blog Near Emmaus to see why). Chris Brady took some photos and posted them on [Read More...]

In San Francisco at AAR/SBL

I’ve made it to San Francisco for the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature conferences. I got to my hotel at 2am local time. I’ve already reconnected with good friends, and am looking forward to the bibliobloggers’ dinner tonight! Here’s the view from my hotel room: [Read more...]

Mark Goodacre on Time-Wasting Über-Bloggers

Mark Goodacre will be speaking at SBL about blogs, podcasts and other time-wasters. The title is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, since he is still blogging and doesn’t consider it an utter waste of time. Click through to read his thoughts, even if you aren’t going to (or already at) SBL. [Read more...]

It’s Finally Here: The AAR/SBL App for iPhone/iPad!

The app for iPhone and iPad that has been designed for those attending the AAR/SBL 2011 Annual Meeting has finally been released. Click here to get it on iTunes! Stephen Cook spotted its appearance even before we received notification from AAR or SBL, and I am grateful that he shared the fact that he had [Read More...]

Biblioblogger (and Religion Blogger?) Meeting in San Francisco

Bob Cargill has taken the initiative (as Jim West, Mark Goodacre and Dan McClellan have already shared) in trying to get bibliobloggers organized and moving forward in planning to meet up at the Society of Biblical Literature conference in November in San Francisco. I’d like to suggest that, in view of the conference’s reunion with [Read More...]
