Biblical Studies Carnival for May

Here is the May 2013 carnival at Jeff Carter's blog. I note at the beginning that I haven't been following Experimental Theology for a while - but Richard Beck's take on Joshua as a record of failure is a good one and his conclusion that the problem is in the heart of Israel fits well with my analysis of the Psalter.  The enemy is us as Pogo told us long ago. The 'other' is incidental to our own inner wrath.  Was such a twist a necessary part of the bootstrap code for life?
