- Justin Taylor announces that Crossway has made available the full text and notes of the Book of Jonah from the forthcoming ESV Study Bible. He also reprints an interview with Mark Futato, who is responsible for the study notes on this book. Now all we need is someone with expertise in the Hebrew Bible to produce a comparative review of Jonah in the ESV and the NLT Study Bibles!
- And speaking of people eminently well suited for that task, the amazing John Hobbins has recently offered a typically brilliant post on How to Read the Book of Proverbs. No less brilliant, and therefore also not to be missed, is his post Psalm 8:6a in Hebrew and Greek: An Introduction.
- Richard Barrett has posted the first part of his translation of a French article by the late Protopresbyter John Meyendorff: The Image of Christ according to Theodore the Studite. I have greatly enjoyed discovering this article through Richard’s wholly excellent translation. He has also posted an astonishingly thorough review of the most recent recent recording by Cappella Romana, The Divine Liturgy in English. Richard, a fellow cantor, also offers in this post some eminently sensible thoughts on the subject of Orthodox liturgical singing in English, which are bound to be of great interest to many.
- And last but not least, my superfriend Juhem Navarro shares a most interesting perspective on tolerance and P. Z. Myers’ “Crackergate” drawing, of all things, on personal experience.
