Biblical Studies Carnival נז (November 2010)

Gentle Readers,

I don’t presume to mention the esteemed Biblical Studies Carnival just published at Bulletin for the Study of Religion solely to note that this humble author was featured as the only blogger in the whole world to scoop the appearance of the new new new NIV, but also to let you know that two other authors from this humble outpost featured prominently (Kudos, Peter and Iver!). Several other blogger friends with a focus on Bible translation were also mentioned (Hobbins, Joel, and Rick to name three) .

But you really must read this month’s Carnival. First thing to note is that it is massive. I’ve never seen one larger with more interesting information. If you want to get a feel for the tone and scope of modern Biblical studies, you could do worse than to read every post linked to in this Carnival.

I’ve put together a Carnival before (Not for BS) and let me tell you it is a lot of work. Congratulations to Deane Galbraith for such a comprehensive list of posts, especially those surrounding the recent SBL, ETS and several other acronyms that took place in the month of December.

So what are you waiting for, just click on the colorful chap below and you’ll be whisked away to this month’s Biblical Studies Carnival:

    Thanks for the tip. It’s quite an achievement, for all three of us, to get in there in SBL month. As I read through this I wondered if you were confusing me with Daniel Kirk, who gets at least four mentions, but there is my name, and a link to my blog. Great! Even though I don’t really want to be in the biblical studies world any more …

    You’re very kind. Congrats again on an excellent Carnival. I’m planning to respond to some of your comments re the NIV. Maybe we can get a flame war going (Just kidding).
