Flotsam and jetsam (6/13)

  • The Australian Broadcast Corporation announces the launch of its religion and ethics portal. The plan is to provide both ABC content from its various media sources as well as original content from leading thinkers around the world.The home page features an article from Rowan Williams, “Refugees Make Us Strange to Ourselves,” about the role that racial and intellectual others play in fostering intellectual freedom and healthy cultural identity. (HT Byron Smith)
  • Biblical Interpretation has an article challenging the idea that we can chronologically separated “early” biblical Hebrew from “late” biblical Hebrew, contending instead that they are contemporaneous styles and that this has implications for how we date OT books. (HT Jim West)
  • Larry Hurtado comments on the success and frustration of his new blog.
  • Ed Setzer discusses four problems with the “rock star” pastor, and his suggested solutions.
  • Christopher Benson has an interesting post on “Why We Need the Dark.” I’m counting on Rev. 22:5 being metaphorical because I really like the dark. (I’m sure that suggest some deeply disturbing things about my psyche, and I’m okay with that.)
  • Joel points out that students can get Amazon Prime free for one year.
  • And, here’s a helpful resource for anyone who needs to learn how to talk smack in Chinese.
