Hen Scratches 15-08-07

Toooo exciting to pass by. I have been shopping around for an all in one with a flatbed scanner, of course. I really miss working with images from old books, etc. Here is the ultimate - a scanner that you take to the library with you. What a great laptop accessory. Rob Bradshaw visits London's Evangelical Library with his scanner.

As usual Rob has lots of great new articles posted. He has also recently posted an article by R.K. Harrison, another of the great old profs at Toronto. I remember him shaking his head and saying he wasn't going to see excellent students discouraged from being ordained just because they were female. I think that was a view he came to late in his career but I'm not sure.

Bruce Alderman posts on recent developments in Bible translation. You should not miss this! HT Jeremy Pierce.

Duane of Abnormal Interests is hosting Biblical Studies Carnival XXI the first of September. I have never quite figured out if you submit your own stuff or someone else's. I can be very slow.

More good stuff on Mike's blog. He suddenly realizes that he is viewing another side of Wayne's writing.

Here is a blog that should be on your blogroll. Pen and Parchment with a post on the canon.

And in a sneak preview of my interview with Bruce Waltke, which I will probably save for September, he said that although he is not in agreement, he predicts that the deuterocanon will eventually be included in the TNIV. This is not a guarantee but it is his best guess.

PS. Day 2 and the pit bull has not yet killed the cat. I have a double lock system for keeping them apart. Shut this door before opening that door.

That scanner looks like it's from the Canon LiDE series. They are great for bringing to the library, as they don't even require a separate power cord (just connect the USB to the laptop).

Thanks for the post Suzanne. Jason is right, it is a Canoscan Lide 25.

Regards, Rob

Just what I wanted to know. Thanks so much.

The Biblical Studies Carnival doesn't get many submissions, so the host usually has to scour the biblio-blogosphere looking for posts. They very much appreciate submissions for their consideration, whether by the author or by someone else. I wish more people would submit their own posts to that carnival. If they did, I might be willing to host it. But I don't have the time to range around all the biblioblogs to see what's out there.

I have been more or less oblivious to these carnivals so far not really appreciating how much work they are.

How about submitting one of your own posts and someone else's? It would be a great help.
