Feast upon the Word Blog

There is a new blog in the Bloggernacle, the Feast upon the Word Blog, which is devoted to discussion of the scriptures, scripture study and scripture education. Check it out.

Also, don’t forget that the Feast upon the Word website is hosting Footnotes to the New Testament for Latter-day Saints, which you may find useful in your Gospel study during this New Testament curriculum year. One of the contributors to the project, John Tvedtnes, will be publishing little essays derived in part from this material in Meridian Magazine throughout the year, so keep your eyes open for those as well.


  1. Good stuff, Kevin. I have been evangelizing Footnotes like crazy.

  2. The only grip for footnotes and feast upon the word is that it would be just that much better if the footnotes worked functionally, like on LDS.org.

  3. gripe, dangit!

  4. Oh, and will Feast be added to the Archipelago?

  5. Kevin Barney says:

    Yeah, Matt W., the problem was that to make the Greek fonts work we had to do this in pdf format, and even at that it was a challenging problem.

    BTW, John Jenkins, the other contributor to Footnotes, is exploring a print on demand possibility, which I know some people (cough* Ronan cough*) are interested in. I’ll let you know when that is set up for those who want to hold an actual book in their hands without going to the bother of printing it and binding it themselves.

  6. That would be great–over Christmas, I hooked my parents on Footnotes, and am using it myself, but my screen is small enough that a real-life book would be perfect.

  7. Kevin Barney says:

    I just posted my first post at that blog, entitled “His Own.” (I neglected to mention that I’m one of the authors.) Go over there and check it out.

    Thanks for the news. Does any blog systematically treat the PH/RS lessons?

    Mormon Wasp posted detailed historical sources for the Woodruff lessons from last year. I don’t know if Justin plans to continue this for the Kimball manual, but I hope he does.

  10. Kevin, dunno if you’ll get this, but here is a great resource for doing greek fonts in unicode online.

    If you do self publish the book in a hard copy, even via lulu or anything else, I’d definitely order one. IF you have a single source for the .PDF file, I’d even look into taking it to Kinkos…

    Some folks are experimenting with it. I’m sure a publsih on demand option will be made available in the not too distant future. I’ll be sure to announce it here when that happens.
