Lot's of good reads and resources to post this month. Last month's poll results are in. Thanks to all who voted.
- Today is the 400th anniversary of the printing of the King James Bible.
- Randy from Studies in Scripture has created a new site: Biblebuyingguide.com, which will feature reviews from this site.
- For those who haven't heard, N.T. Wright is publishing his own translation of the New Testament, called the King's Version due at the end of September. Derek Oullette collects the details.
- In the future I will be uploading files in conjunction with the blog using Digital Dropbox. A 2gb account is free. If you sign up for an account using my referral link, we both get an extra 250megs of space.
- I've created a sermon jam (hosted on Dropbox) from a recent sermon on our New Nature that is challenging my view of myself and others and provides what may be a controversial freshness. Comment on this post identifying the speaker (a bit controversial himself) to receive a No-Prize. Comment and let me know if you love it or hate it.
- Better Bibles Blog corrects a USA Today article, featuring statistics suggesting that among those of us who read their Bibles the KJV is greatly preferred. They partner the post with another reflecting on the article's unfortunate wording, which inadvertently announces that the Geneva Bible may be making a comeback.
- Though I am not highly invested in textual criticism. Stephen Rives wrote an interesting introduction to textual criticism.
- Sermonindex features an article on Recovering a Theology of Martyrdom.
- Voice of the Martyrs reminds us of the scarcity of Bibles worldwide in their article Getting a Bible in our Churches is like Getting a Kilogram of Gold. VOM is also offering persecution theology workshops.
- For those interested in my missionary activities my May Newsletter is up and almost in the mail.
- This month I was deeply moved by the last chapter of Tim Keller's Prodigal God and am currently reading Watchman Nee's How to Study the Bible.
And here I thought it was discipline.
