Evangelical Textual Criticism on Live from SBL in Washington


Evangelical Theological Society & Society of Biblical Literature 2006

The theme for this year’s ETS is Christians in the Public Square. Immediately after the ETS conference, the SBL annual meeting begins. My co-blogger will be presenting two papers at SBL this year and would covet your prayers.

Blogging Winsomely


Melinda Penner spoke at GodBlogCon on “Blogging As a Winsome Witness.”


Here is a summary of her suggestions.


1. Develop knowledge, wisdom, and character.

2. I’m always an ambassador and my blogging always reflects on another.

3. Have a mission statement that defines what your blog is about.

4. Define the values that you commit to follow in writing your blog.

5. Deal with ideas and not personalities. Be charitable in interpreting other’s comments. Be fair. Don’t ascribe motives to someone you have no knowledge of.

6. When dealing with politics, tread carefully.

7. Pursue excellence.

8. Model clear-thinking Christianity.


Desiring God Conference (Above All Early Powers)

For those interested in the most recent desiring God conference, Brian Lenney attended and has an excellent commentary on the conference at his blog.

His blog will be very interesting to readers interested in the kinds of issues discussed here. See his recent discussion of Rosie O’Donnell bashing Christianity on the air as well.
