Biblioblogging in August

I’m a little behind on a couple of things today, but I wanted to make sure you knew about two things that have been posted recently about biblioblogging in August. First, Jim West has posted the 2010 August Biblical Studies Carnival. Jim has done an outstanding job pulling together some of the best blog posts in Bible, church history, theology, archeology, and other areas of interest. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check it out. And, I especially like to highlight that Jim noted several posts from our general blogging community:

  • “Speaking of blogging, don’t – for any reason – miss Ben Myer’s piece titled Theology 2.0 – Blogging as Theological Discourse.” (Ben doesn’t have anything to do with this blog, I commented on his post here.)
  • “Marc struggled with Psalm 109 and he dragged Spurgeon in for help.” (This was actually Billy’s post, but he and I interacted quite a bit in the comments.)
  • Brian LePort leads us down the path of examining John the Baptist’s shrinkage in a multi-part series.  I don’t know why.  I worry about Brian.  I think you should all put him on your list of prayers.”  (According to Brian, Jim’s comment here stems from the fact that Brian’s reference to the “shrinkage” of John the Baptist has nothing to do with its Seinfeldian implications. I find that hard to believe, but that’s what Brian claims.)

And, second, the Biblioblog rankings for August are out. Jeremy’s done a great job putting all of this together and highlighting a number of really good biblioblogs.

  1. Is he wrong (a) that your comment has to do with Seinfeldian shrinkage, (b) that his series should be read without reference to Seinfeldian shrinkage, or (c) both?

  2. I don’t watch enough Seinfeld to be guilty of these charges!

  3. think cold water… seinfeld… shrinkage.
