The following are some of the enjoyable and insightful posts, articles and talks that I have read or listened to in the last couple of days:—
Kids, the Internet, and the End of Privacy [HT: matthew henry john bartlett]
***Ben Witherington – The Jesus Tomb? ‘Titanic’ Talpiot Tomb Theory Sunk from the Start
***The full series of T.F. Torrance audio lectures
***Lauren F. Winner – Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity
***Cynthia Nielsen continues blogging on Jean-Luc Marion
***Mark Horne proclaims the ‘hastening death’ of the theological journal. Frankly, I find the idea that the future of theological writing might lie in the works of dilettante bloggers like me little short of terrifying. Let’s hope that the theological journals reinvent themselves quickly (First Things is a good example of one that seems to be getting it just about right).
***On a related note to the previous item, Mark Goodacre comments on the way that the biblioblogosphere shapes the way that scholarship engages with such news stories as that of the Jesus tomb
***Leithart: Predestination and Logic and Eschatological Meaning
***My brother Mark posts videos of himself making origami models: an elephant and a rose
***Perhaps the most useful resource that I have encountered for weeks [HT: Tim Challies] — search every Calvin and Hobbes cartoon by keywords. Ever wondered how many times the word ‘boogers’ appears in the Calvin and Hobbes corpus? You need wonder no longer!
