I am still trying to get back in the swing of things after returning from my most recent backpacking exploits in Colorado (I’ll probably post a few pics that the wife took in coming days). But, my catch-up duties have not prevented me from working on the Daily Round-Up. Here’s Wednesday’s links:
- Alan over at The Assembling of the Church has an interesting “synchroblog” (whatever that is) post about corporate worship: “Here I am to worship.”
- The Jesus Project is just now making it’s way on to my radar screen. How do you feel about it? Feel free to comment. Even though their site tries to differentiate them from the Jesus Seminar in a rather stark way, it still smells pretty similar to me. April DeConick, a “fellow,” has an interesting little blurb on her blog here. Frankly, this organization is starting to sound a bit creepy. Check out Christopher Heard’s post, and Chris Zeichman’s post. Why is this project associating people with it who have not been asked? Gives me the willies…
- Michael Bird of Euangelion has a nice little list: “Top Five Books on Studying Revelation.” Throughout the years I have found Revelation to be quite a sticky topic. Lately, however, I must admit that I’ve enjoyed teaching from it. I wonder if Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza will ever write her Hermeneia commentary on this one…
- Novum Testamentum Blog has an interview with April DeConick. Topics include blogging and how she got into blogging, a day in the life, thougths on “Gnosticism” and various noncanonical texts. Nothing earth-shattering, but if you’re a fan of The Forbidden Gospels Blog, or you just have some weird interest in the daily lives of professors, or, better yet, you are confused as to what an academic does on a daily basis in a city like Houston (my hometown)…check it out!
- Chris Tilling is working on a nice little review of Gordon Fee’s Pauline Christology: Part 1, Part 2. Thanks a bundle for doing that, Chris. I love a good book review. As I say that, I realize that I’ve depended on book reviews a lot in my research. Too much?
- Biblical Studies Carnival XX is up at Claue Mariottini’s blog. Too much to comment on…check it out, you’re bound to find something of interest.
