New Blogs 18
My good friend Matt Montonini has a new blog called New Testament Perspectives which will be a good read.
Also, for me, other highlights at SBL were:
1. Denny Burke in his ETS presentation being the first individual in history to point out that I am not a heretic when it comes to justification (I owe Denny a beer!). He also gave a good paper on Rom. 4.25 and pointed out that I don't know the difference between a noun and a verb.
2. Jason Hood gave an excellent paper on evangelicals and the atonement which I hope he publishes some time soon.
3. I saw Stan Porter buy a copy of the Scofield reference Bible. After the initial "what the ..." Stan explained that it is an important book in terms of the history of interpretation.
4. I saw Todd Penner of Austin College wearing socks and sandals (he evidently got the idea from N.T. Wright last year).
5. Talking to Matt Montonini's wife Faith on the phone.
