Denver Journal latest

Some new items on the Denver Journal:

Denver Journal Volume 7 (2004)

Note in particular:

New Testament Exegesis Bibliography (Craig L. Blomberg & William W. Klein)

This is an annually updated feature of the Denver Journal and focuses on useful material for students of the New Testament, largely but not entirely from an evangelical perspective, and focuses especially on commentaries. Well worth checking up.

Update (Wednesday, 12:13): On Bible Software Review Weblog, Rubén Gómez writes on the New Testament Exegesis Bibliography:
Fairly standard list, with lots of good books. But my question is: why isn't there a single reference to any Bible software, multimedia software, courseware or such like? Does this mean that there is no single software tool that deserves to be recommended? It baffles me that this should still happen in 2004. Come on, ladies and gentlemen! there are currently some excellent applications that scholars and students should not only know about, but use extensively.
This is a good point. There are no internet resources either, which potentially reinforces the impression that "proper" research only takes place with books on a desk. What I think we need to be doing is pointing students to the best electronic resources so that they can learn to be as discriminating with those as they are with print resources.
