Craig S. Keener on reading the Bible

Craig Keener shared on the Koinonia blog about an influential book for him.  I am glad it was the Bible!  But listen to the interview – can you imagine? reading 40 chapters of the Bible a day? Reading the entire NT in a weekWow!!  I feel ashamed already.  Not really but dang.  How many of us have even read 40 seperate chapters of the Bible this year?

Craig S. Keener (PhD, Duke University)[and an AGTS grad!] is professor of biblical studies at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous commentaries, journal articles, and other works focusing on New Testament studies and Biblical Studies, including Revelation for the NIVAC series and a two volume commentary on John (Hendrickson, 2004).

Conversation with Craig Keener

I came across a casual conversation on Rick Hogaboam‘s blog by way of the Gordon Fee Appreciation page on Facebook.  It is interesting.  Remember it is an unoffocial – off the record conversation.  General statements are being made.  The discussion centers primarily around Charismatic issues.  Let me know what you think!

RBL Additions for consideration.

The following are some of the more notable book review additions to the RBL website (in my estimation): 

Walter Brueggemann
Praying the Psalms: Engaging the Scripture and the Life of the Spirit
Reviewed by Patrick D. Miller

Mike Graves and David M. May
Preaching Matthew: Interpretation and Proclamation 
Reviewed by Craig S. Keener

If not for the content of the book being reviewed,

the reviews themselves are notable (method, style, content).
