Jim Linville has posted the latest Biblical Studies Carnival, and it is full of humor, Biblical studies, and sci-fi (with a particularly large dose of Terry Pratchett). Click through to read and enjoy it!
Thank you, Jim, for a delightful carnival!
I do wonder how much of a divide there is between those who like Speculative Fiction and those who don’t in the clerical/theological world?
I would say that it varies as much as anywhere, and that the divide is nowhere as sharp as is the divide between the clerical/theological world and that of religious studies, which Jim Linville and I work in.
I would hope neither are incompatiable, since it would seem the former [theology]tries to articulate a worldview as a whole using philosophical terms whereas the other [religious studies], studies the development of the individual bits and peices that make up the world view, that believers call there own.
