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:
