Missing Comments Restored

A blog reader alerted me that the comments on an older post, “Your Daily Dose of Mythicism,” had gone missing. With the help of determined tech support staff at Patheos, those Disqus comments have been restored. There are hundreds of them, and the discussions are arguably the most valuable feature on this blog, and so I [Read More…]

Bloggers’ Dinner at #AARSBL16

It is that time of year again, when professors of religion, biblical studies, and other such fields realize that they have to start preparing for the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature in November.

August 2016 Biblical Studies Carnival

J. K. Turner has posted the latest Biblical Studies Carnival. Phil Long has additional information about upcoming carnivals.

Biblical Studies Carnival CXXII

NT Wrong has returned to blogging to offer the latest Biblical Studies Carnival. Click through to read it. Some years ago I dedicated a series of blog posts to the question of the true identity of the elusive pseudonymous biblioblogger NT Wrong.
