A Time To Laugh | He has made everything beautiful in His time. | Camille Lewis
I’m a happy wife to Grant and a gentle, work-at-home mom to my sweet children and six babies in Heaven. I am also an independent scholar, historian, published author, and freelance journalist — what is now called a “nontraditional academic.” I like to knit, smock, bead, scrap, read, and, of course, blog.

PhD in Parenting Blog | Annie Urban | ...Exploring the Art And Science of Parenting
Annie has been blogging about the art and science of parenting on the PhD in Parenting Blog since May 2008. She is a social, political and consumer advocate on issues of importance to parents, women and children. She regularly uses her blog as a platform to create awareness and to advocate for change, calling out the government, corporations, media and sometimes other bloggers for positions, policies and actions that threaten the rights and well-being of parents and their children. Annie also writes for the Care2 Causes blog and contributes occasionally at Attachment Parenting International and Moms Rising. She is active on twitter (@phdinparenting) and facebook (
I’m working on my proverbial PhD in Parenting. As someone who has spent a lot of years in a classroom, I learned that sometimes I need to take notes and explain things to others before I can truly master them. I spend a lot of time thinking about and reading about things that will help me to be a better parent, so I decided to start writing about it to with the hopes that more of it will sink in.
Maybe my blog will help others along the way too. Perhaps someone else that is struggling with an issue will read something I wrote and take something away from it. Maybe my husband will read the book reviews since I can’t convince him to read the books. Maybe family and friends will read it and get a better understanding for why we parent the way that we do. Maybe no one will read it, in which case it will just act as my own study guide.
If you feel moved to comment or ask questions, by all means jump in. I enjoy a good conversation. However, I would ask that you be respectful of who I am and my parenting philosophy in doing so.

The Screaming Kettle | a blog by David Nilsen
My name is David, and I’m a 29 year old father and husband living in the small town of Greenville, Ohio. I more or less fit the bill of the trendy Christian bohemian – I love indie rock; I take deep meaning from classic and independent films; I find more encouragement and truth in the writings of Donald Miller and Anne Lamott than John MacArthur or Al Mohler; I hold my theological beliefs with an open hand; I take environmental and social justice issues very seriously (but of course don’t do enough about them). Your dad has never heard of my favorite beer breweries. Etcetera. You probably know the drill.
Recurring characters you will read a lot about here are my pretty-and-witty wife Lyndie and my daughter Yoselin (Yosi), whom we adopted from Guatemala at the age of 8 months in April, 2008.
I currently work a totally unsatisfying job as an I.T. Specialist at a bank, and also sell used and rare books on the side. I hope to make this my full time source of income in the next year or two by opening a brick and mortar shop on the charming downtown main street of our little burg.
I’ve been writing since childhood, and hope to publish a book before I’m too old to be obnoxious about it. I write creative non-fiction, poetry, fiction, and film reviews, though mostly only that first category makes it onto this blog.
I love to hear from readers, so feel free to use any of the following means to get in touch with me!

The Boy with the Thorn in His Side | Musings on Faith, Culture, And Life. | Travis Mamone
I'm not very good at introducing myself, but here is goes. My name is Travis Mamone. I live in Easton, MD. I work at a public library by day, and a freelance writer by night. I've contributed to a number of different websites and publications throughout the years, including Relevant Magazine, Burnside Writers Collective, Indie Ink, and The Upper Room. I also used to co-host the Something Beautiful podcast.
As far as what this blog is all about, well, let me begin by saying what this blog is NOT:
-This blog is NOT a guide to dating, sex (specifically how to avoid it before marriage), and surviving your twenties.
-This blog is NOT a political blog where I try to fit God into a tiny little political box. As far as I know, Jesus is not a liberal, a conservative, a libertarian, an anarchist, a socialist, a capitalist, etc.
-This blog does NOT have any cute cat pictures. I like cats, though.
-This blog is NOT just a "gay Christian blog." As a bisexual man, I do talk about LGBT-related issues a lot. But not in every single post.
So what is The Boy With The Thorn In His Side all about?
This blog is the story of my ever-evolving faith. There are times when God is so clear to me that I can hardly take it, and other times when He doesn't make a darn bit of sense. Either way, I hope you'll join me in my journey, and feel free to share your story with me.
And as far as the title, yes I like the Smiths! But the phrase "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side" more as a reference to the thorn in Paul's flesh. In my weakness, that's when I can feel God's strength the most.

Working my way from fundamentalism to freedom (without losing my mind)
Thank you for visiting my blog!
In it, I tell stories, and I stand on soapboxes.
I call out and I call to action.
I try to figure out who God is.
I attempt to reconcile my Christian faith with my feminist politics.
Welcome readers!
My name is Sarah Moon, and I am a writer and student. I am currently attending Bowling Green State University in Ohio, pursuing a degree in Women’s Studies.
I am a feminist and a member of BGSU’s Organization for Women’s Issues. I am passionate about reconciling my Christian faith with feminism, and about helping to make the church a better place for women everywhere.
I’m opinionated, but I appreciate other points of view, so feel free to ask me any questions!

Dianna E. Anderson: Faith and Feminism
Dianna Anderson is a 26 year old writer living in Chicago, IL. She has a Master of the Arts in English from Baylor University and a Bachelor of the Arts in theology and philosophy from the University of Sioux Falls. Her MA thesis was done on the very nerdy but very fun topic of Harry Potter (and if you ever want to engage her on a debate as to whether or not it’s “real literature,” email her. She’ll win.)
She grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and is the daughter of two wonderful parents and the sister to two older brothers. Her oldest brother, MJ, has Down Syndrome, but lives on his own in Sioux Falls and works at a local hotel. Her other brother, Marc, is married to a wonderful lady named Carrie and is the father of the world’s cutest baby (seriously, no baby can match this little girl). Marc works as a pastor of a large church in the small town of Huron, South Dakota.
She is also a huge nerd. Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Narnia (along with almost anything CS Lewis), Torchwood, Sherlock – if it’s on BBC America, chances are I’m watching. Except for The Tudors. That show is just stupid – Henry the Eighth was a very large man and not at all sexy. He likely had syphilis. That ain’t pretty.

Bulletin for the Study of Religion
Welcome to the blog site for the Bulletin for the Study of Religion, published by Equinox. The co-editors of the Bulletin are independent scholar Philip Tite of Seattle, Washington (USA) and Kelly J. Baker who teaches religious studies and American Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville . The associate editor is Matt Sheedy, a doctoral candidate at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg (Canada). This site is currently maintained by Nathan Rein of Ursinus College. Thanks for visiting.
The Bulletin publishes articles that address religion in general, the history of the field of religious studies, method and theory in the study of religion, and pedagogical practices. Articles featured in the Bulletin cover diverse religious traditions from any time period (from ancient religions to new religious movements), but are typically distinguished by their social scientific methods (e.g., historical, sociological, anthropological, cognitive scientific) or critical theory apparatus (i.e., post-colonialist, post-structuralist, neo-marxist). The Bulletin is unique in that it offers a forum for various academic voices to debate and reflect on the ever-changing state of the field, and insofar as it encourages scholars continually to engage meta-level questions at the leading edge of inquiry.

Department of Classics : Reading List : Haverford College
The Majors' Reading List consists of a group of central Greek and Latin texts selected by the faculty, to be read in English (if not in the original) by the beginning of the senior year. Many of these texts will have been assigned in different classes, while others will complement class readings. By reading, considering, and discussing the texts on the list, bi-college Classics students—whatever the focus of their particular major—will emerge with a stronger common basis for discussion and with a better sense of the range and depth of the classical heritage.

The Imaginative Conservative
The conservative is concerned, first of all, for the regeneration of spirit and character—with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at its highest.--Russell Kirk
We hope you will join us in The Imaginative Conservative community. The Imaginative Conservative is an on-line journal for those who seek the True, the Good and the Beautiful. We address culture, liberal learning, politics, political economy, literature, the arts and the American Republic in the tradition of Russell Kirk, T.S. Eliot, Edmund Burke, Irving Babbitt, Paul Elmer More, Wilhelm Roepke, Robert Nisbet, M.E. Bradford, Christopher Dawson and other leaders of Imaginative Conservatism.

MARS HILL AUDIO is committed to assisting Christians who desire to move from thoughtless consumption of contemporary culture to a vantage point of thoughtful engagement. We believe that fulfilling the commands to love God and neighbor requires that we pay careful attention to the neighborhood: that is, every sphere of human life where God is either glorified or despised, where neighbors are either edified or undermined.

The Divine Conspiracy
Welcome to The Divine Conspiracy. The material presented on these pages is of the highest quality available anywhere on the Web.
This is a unique Christian site in that not all the material found here is written by, or for Christians. However, this tradition - of providing material from non-Christian points-of-view - has been a part of The Divine Conspiracy from the very beginning. In most cases, the accompanying abstracts (where available) should give sufficient information as to the author's viewpoint.

something LATIN
NOTE WELL, this blog is simply a web scrapbook of things I want to read or retain. I often lift entire posts from others, but always explain this in the post title and put a link at the top of the post, because too many web postings just disappear. There is virtually nothing here that is original to me, because quite frankly, I'm just a waste of space in the cacophony of life. I'm not interesting and have no interesting thoughts worth sharing.

The Englewood Review of Books | Community, Mission, Imagination, Reconciliation
The Best Books for Missional Church communities. Community. Mission. Imagination Reconciliation.
The Englewood Review of Books is a weekly book review published by Englewood Christian Church, Indianapolis. We review books that we believe are valuable resources for the people of God, as we follow the mission of God: i.e., the reconciliation of all things. The books we review are not necessarily books from the “Christian market,” and most of the books that we review will not be stocked in your local Christian bookstore.
Our friend, Shane Claiborne, likes to say that “Another World is Possible,” and indeed we hope that the books we review point toward a new world that is characterized by the justice and shalom of God.

Life's Paradox » the blog of Eric Austin Lee:
My name is Eric Lee and I am married to the wonderful Tiana Reinhardt Lee. We were married on May 20, 2006. We have been living in San Diego since 97/98 when we arrived to start our undergraduate education. We are members of the Church of the Nazarene in Mid-City for the past 5-6 years.
My first degree was a BA in Computer science at Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU). The summer before my senior year I started working as a Web Programmer at BlueHornet Networks, Inc., and remained there for a total of five years. Then I took a job at Point Loma Nazarene University as a Application Programmer Analyst… basically I did programming and programming-related tasks.
In January of 2006 I began an MA program in Religion with a concentration in Theology at PLNU, and have recently completed my MA thesis and graduated in May 2008.
As of September 22, 2008 I have begun full-time studies in a 3-year Ph.D. research program in Theology and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham. Tiana is working fulltime, and we should be done here by 2011.

biblicalia | biblica + alia = biblicalia
I am Kevin P. Edgecomb of Brookline, Massachusetts, where I am a seminarian in the MDiv program at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, with the intention to be eventually ordained to the priesthood.
My undergraduate work was at U.C. Berkeley, with a BA in Near Eastern Studies (Classical Hebrew emphasis). Since then, I’ve kept up with my field of studies and expanded them to include the early Christian period. I’ve a special fascination with apocryphal/pseudepigraphic works, and with early church orders and lectionaries. You may have noticed that from the site. Some of the translations here are from scratch, others are based on earlier translations, as noted. In a way, this website is a record of how my curiosity has led me far and wide.
I’m a member of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and find many of my studies to be related to my faith, to a greater or lesser degree. And while prayer is the foundation, reading and study have contributed to the building of my current life as well.
I appreciate all the kind thanks that many have sent, and am grateful for the various links that others have made to my site, its usage in graduate seminars and sermons, publications that have resulted from pages and posts here, and through kind mention of my humble efforts in whatever media. I’m always interested to hear what different people find most useful on the site, or what they’ve enjoyed most. I also appreciate all input on things like format and presentation. I try to keep things simple. The important thing is the information imparted, not the presentation.
Thank you for visiting bombaxo and biblicalia!

reflections from Seminary Avenue (on anything from preschool to PhD)
I've been happily married to the love of my life for over 13 years and we have 3 beautiful children. After my graduation from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2011 with an MA in Biblical Studies, we moved to Illinois where I'm working on a PhD in Old Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School under Dr. Daniel Block. I believe passionately in the Word of God (both written and incarnate!) and my deepest joy is seeing lives transformed by the truth of Jesus Christ.

Providence, Divine Action and the Church | Thoughts and Research on the Christian Doctrine of God's Providence | Terry J. Wright
In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God's provision for all things through creation's high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God's action.
I am an Associate Research Fellow at Spurgeon’s College; a tutor for the Diocese of Rochester’s Foundation in Christian Ministry course; and a lay worker for discipleship at my local church. I have published widely on the Christian doctrine of providence (my primary research interest), and on themes ranging from virtual reality to collecting 1980s memorabilia.

Peripatetic Learning | Traveling in the footsteps of those who have gone before | Carl Sweatman
The basic (minor) stuff: Carl Sweatman; Georgia native; alumnus of Shamrock High School (doesn’t exist anymore), Cincinnati Bible College, and Cincinnati Bible Seminary; ordained (children’s) minister; PhD student at the University of Gloucestershire (Cheltenham, England); glutton for intellectual punishment; collector of books–especially old ones; coffee drinker; and pitiful golfer.
The technical/professional version: see here (, or here ( –they’re both about the same.
The more meaningful stuff: son, brother, husband, friend, follower of Jesus.

The Busybody | Loren Rosson
Just as cooks pray for a good crop of young animals and fishermen for a good haul of fish, in the same way busybodies pray for a good crop of calamities or a good haul of difficulties that they, like cooks and fishermen, may always have something to fish out and butcher. (Plutarch, "On Being a Busybody")

Krista Dalton @KristaNDalton
Grad Student in Ancient Judaism. Accidental feminist and heretic. Board game snob.
I am not your typical Jewish studies graduate student. For one, I’m not Jewish. My love of Judaism started in the fourth grade when my teacher had to create a separate curriculum for me, as I was “that” kid growing up with a love of reading that surpassed my grade level, and she developed my course around her own Jewish heritage. Also, I’m a Christian, which has led many an adviser to attempt to redirect my academic path, always saying something to the effect of “but you’ll never get hired to teach Jewish history as a Christian!” And I always stubbornly replied, “I don’t care if I get a damn job. I love Hebrew, Torah, and Hot Pastrami on Rye.”
After spending my formative years in Salt Lake City, UT, I moved to Missouri for both my undergraduate and master’s programs. I received a B.A. in History, Biblical Studies, and Education from Evangel University before receiving a Graduate Assistantship at Missouri State University. My M.A. in Religious Studies has segued to my current graduate work at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America where I study Ancient Judaism. Some day in the far off distant future, I will hold a slip of paper that will require my colleagues to call me “Dr. Dalton.” Until then, I exist in the perpetual world of graduate studies.

book notes, selections of good writing, and other thoughts
I am an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow in the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and affiliated with the Septuaginta Unternehmen after spending 2009-2012 as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in Oxford. My scholarly interests are in the Septuagint above all, but also the related questions of the development of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, including compositional history and canonical formation, Jewish and Christian exegesis and polemics over the biblical text, and the history of their debates to define what Scripture is and is not.

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth | A Blog About the Bible, Books, and Beating People Up…
My name is Nick Norelli and this is my blog, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth. This blog is an outlet for me to discuss all the things that interest me. This ranges from movies, television, music, and sports to more important matters like the Bible, theology, and books about the Bible and theology.
I’m a Pentecostal Christian of the Trinitarian variety, which means that in addition to affirming the classic ecumenical creeds, most notably the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed and the Symbol of Chalcedon, I also hold to the distinctive doctrines of Pentecostalism, namely Salvation, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ.
While I am a Pentecostal by both the Lord’s calling and theological conviction, I am not under the impression that Pentecostalism is the be-all and end-all of the Christian faith. I recognize that the body of Christ exhibits diversity in unity (see 1 Cor. 12) so I’m proud to call anyone from any denomination a brother or sister as long as they love the Holy Trinity, confess Christ as Lord, and rest assured in the work that God has done to accomplish our salvation.

Themelios - The Gospel Coalition
Themelios is an international evangelical theological journal that expounds and defends the historic Christian faith. Its primary audience is theological students and pastors, though scholars read it as well. It was formerly a print journal operated by RTSF/UCCF in the UK, and it became a digital journal operated by The Gospel Coalition in 2008. The editorial team draws participants from across the globe as editors, essayists, and reviewers.
Themelios is published three times a year exclusively online at The Gospel Coalition. It is presented in two formats:PDF (for downloading and citing pagination) and HTML (for greater accessibility, usability, and infiltration in search engines). Themelios is copyrighted by The Gospel Coalition. Readers are free to use it and circulate it in digital form without further permission (any print use requires further written permission), but they must acknowledge the source and, of course, not change the content.

Catholic Bibles
I teach theology at a local Catholic high school, along with being an instructor for the Catholic Biblical School of Michigan. In May of 2009, I completed my graduate work and was awarded the S.T.B. degree. (The S.T.B. is an ecclesiastical degree conferred by the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, also known as the Angelicum, through the faculty of Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit.) As of Summer 2012, I am an Associate Member of the Catholic Biblical Association. I love the Lord, His Church, and the Holy Scriptures. This blog is intended to be a place where Catholics and other Christians can discuss Catholic Bible editions, study tools, and other issues concerning the Catholic faith.
