It is a pleasure to welcome another new biblioblog on the block:


It's by Ken Olson, who is currently reading for a PhD in New Testament at the Dept of Theology and Religion here in Birmingham and who has published several items of interest, including most recently "Unpicking on the Farrer Theory" in Mark Goodacre and Nicholas Perrin (eds.), Questioning Q (London: SPCK, 2004; Downers Grove, IL: IVP, 2005): 127-50. Ken will be known well already to those who hang around in places like Xtalk and Synoptic-L, where his posts are always of interest. (I think in particular of his posts on Kenneth Bailey's oral tradition theories a short while ago).

So far KAIMOI includes a most enjoyable April 1 posting on Top 10 Reasons to Accept the Infancy Gospel of Thomas as Historically Reliable, but don't let the date lead you to dismiss the posting -- it's actually a pretty sophisticated critique of some typical arguments used by conservative apologists of the complete historicity of the canonical Gospels.

Welcome to the blogosphere, Ken.
