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.

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.
