Upcoming Blog Tour: When God Spoke Greek

Brian Le Port and Abram Kielsmeier-Jones blogged about a blog tour that I’ll also be participating in, and so I will simply quote Abram here: …I’ll be joining a group of bloggers in reviewing Timothy Michael Law‘s forthcoming When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible. Brian LePort at Near Emmaus is hosting. Here is [Read More…]

Betraying the Bible

John Shore has the following to say in a post today: The conservatives’ kill shot has always been a silver bullet with four words engraved into it: “It’s in the Bible.” A wife is to submit to her husband.
