Scholarship Around the Blogosphere

First, Bob Cargill shared the following motivational poster, with the heading “Why scholarship is important” and the additional observation that “Just because it’s simple, clever, or rhymes, doesn’t necessarily make it correct.”

Scott Bailey, in addition to passing on the image above, also continued his discussion of whether higher criticism attempts to “destroy the Bible,” and (along with John Loftus) shared a video of Bart Ehrman which freezes him in a moment of quasi-religious ecstasy of the sort that scholarship frequently produces.

Also under the heading of scholarship around the blogosphere, Richard Hall shared excerpts from an interview with Amy-Jill Levine, John Byron said farewell to his dig at Tel Gezer, Christopher Rollston offered further thoughts on the Miriam Ossuary, and Roger Olson posted on the popular misuse of the terminology of “theological liberalism.”
