Bathsheba Goes to the Movies

This five-minute movie was produced by students here at the seminary last year, as a class project for a course on the Bible and the Movies taught by my colleague Prof. Judy Fentress-Williams. The video, set to music, tells the famous David and Bathsheba story. Enjoy!

Blogger Releases an iPhone App

Until now updating this blog on the go, from the iPhone, required using the BlogPress app, an unofficial Blogger application. Now, finally, Google has launched an official app for Blogger. I tested it last night, and it successfully posted text and a photo. I have yet to test the geotagging function.

I imagine such improvements and updates must be under consideration or in the works.
