Here are some pictures of highlighting and taking notes…
Good stuff… You can do more than just highlight, obviously… I don’t because I’m vanilla.
James McGrath has suggested, on his blog, a type of wiki, etc… that deals with mythicists “claims.”
Best of luck and all, but I think a book would be better.
It’s a good possibility you don’t follow Logos on Twitter, or read their blog, etc… and frankly, I often forget about their time saving tips. So, I am posting this for me, not you. Turn away… don’t look or listen to this awesome video about using Logos 5 to memorize stuff
Was that too cheesy? I mean, did you get the sense I was trying to get you to watch it?
Good. Now, go to Logos.com. You will not be sorry.
No worries… I’m not going off a cliff…
But I try to be a responsive blogger. This is not just my community, but ours.
That’s why I am always looking for contributors.
So, this year, as it comes to a close and a new one opens tomorrow because that’s how we said it would be, let me know what you want to see in the coming year.
And if you want to be a contributor… No rules, just write. Get it? Oh boy… I kill myself.
More of this or less of that?
I realize that the curmudgeon doesn’t like these top lists, however, I openly state that this list is my subjectively compiled list. And I don’t care about your list. Okay, I do. I encourage you to share your lists too. If you think there are other events, please post them in the comments section.
These are somewhat in order of how they appeared. Also, the links aren’t representative of the full impact of each event, but there you go.
I have been slowly reading my way into the New Perspective on Paul (NPP) literature for the last few months as part of my current work in Romans. James Dunn’s keen observations about commonly overlooked–but important–words has been a bright spot in wading through the rat’s nest of detail. The next time I hear someone whine about how complex and detailed discourse grammar is, they’ll get a dope slap. Lots of fields and discussions within them are complex; I am (re)learning that with the NPP literature. It is just a matter of gaining the needed background to understand all of the information that is assumed by those participating in the discussion.
The good Doctor is preparing a discoure Grammar for Romans. This is a lead up post.
I hope and pray he takes Stanley Stowers’ work into consideration as well.
Anyway, you have to read his work, on Logos, and get some…. here.
That’s correct… You can find him here.
And don’t forget to get the Baker Academic reprint of his book.
This study offers a fresh, thorough engagement with Paul’s use of Deuteronomy, paying full attention to the concrete realities of Paul’s exposure, in life and literature, to Torah. David Lincicum compares Paul’s handling of Deuteronomy to the treatment of Deuteronomy in other contemporary Jewish sources. He shows how this key book of Jewish Scripture was influential in Jewish life and liturgy and how it bears on Paul’s relationship to the Law.
Originally published by Mohr Siebeck in the Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament series, this work is now available as an affordable North American paperback.
Clement of Rome’s First Epistle to the Corinthians is a supremely valuable historical document. One of very few noncanonical Christian texts to reach us from the first century, it’s an early example of the exercise of hierarchical—and Roman—authority in the Church. Disciplinary in nature, Clement’s epistle speaks volumes about the life of the early church. The early Christians guarded the letter fiercely, risking their own lives to preserve it for generations to come.
In Clement and the Early Church of Rome: On the Dating of Clement’s First Epistle to the Corinthians, Thomas Herron presents painstaking research in favor of an earlier dating for the epistle. Carefully examining both external and internal evidence surrounding the letter, he sketches out the historical, theological, and apologetic significance an earlier dating would have. His scholarship sheds new light on the dating questions that plague this early document and offers insight into the structural history of the post apostolic church.
Yes, I’m copying from Jim here, but he did have a good idea.
This just hit the shelves, so to speak, at Logos. Herron is arguing for a real early date – before the destruction of the Temple. I’m not completely convinced… but I am reading it.
So, go get it.

Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words! 1
A psalm of thanksgiving. Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. 2
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 3
Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 4
until there was only one left– his son whom he loved dearly. The owner finally sent him, thinking, ‘Surely they will respect my son.’ 5
Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. 6
A psalm of David. Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 7
Mary responded, “Oh, how my soul praises the Lord. How my spirit rejoices in God my Savior! 8

To celebrate this blessed occasion, we’re giving away the Documents of Vatican II and Verbum Domini until December 31—and asking that you tell all your friends! It’s a free chance to try the software while reading the documents of Vatican II—a wonderful opportunity during this Year of Faith designated to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that very council.
I have both… but you need them. Plus, if you are in the mood, get a few more items. Seriously, the Catholic stuff is just about the best…
