The 312th Christian Carnival will be hosted this coming Wednesday at MandM. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see the Christian Carnival archive.

To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Select only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from the last Wednesday through the coming Tuesday). Then do the following:

Welcome to the 310th Christian Carnival. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. For more information on the Christian Carnival, see here. If you are interested in hosting a future Christian Carnival, please let me know at the email address in the sidebar. The current schedule of hosts is here.

I'm listing the submissions in the order I received them, generally including a description beyond the title only if none was submitted or I find the title uninformative. I'll include some ringers at the end that no one submitted, as is my usual tradition when hosting, and I'm including late submissions for last week's carnival at the end (take note that there's no guarantee of any future host doing that). If you submitted a post that meets the sumission requirements, and it doesn't appear here, please let me know. Posts are supposed to be from the last week, on some topic related to Christianity, and from a point-of-view that isn't at odds with the creeds recognized in common by Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox Christians.

The 309th Christian Carnival is up at RodneyOlsen.net.

Update: I don't usually do this, but two posts are so outstanding that I wanted to highlight them. John Howell's Does God Feel Emotions? is a very good summary of a difficult question for classical theism, which holds that God is not changed in any way by what happens in the world but yet has to deal with emotion-language in scripture.

Also, MandM's Joshua and the Genocide of the Canaanites, Part I is one of the best presentations of the view that language in the book of Joshua commanding what seems to be genocide is hyperbole, informed significantly by recent conversations by some prominent biblical scholars and philosophers of religion, many of whom are evangelicals with a high view of scripture. The one difficulty I've had with that view is Samuel's criticism of Saul in I Samuel 15, which has seemed to many interpreters to be because he didn't fulfill a literal command to destroy all the Amalekites. Someone else named Jeremy raises that point in the comments, and I think the discussion that follows is very helpful. I'm not convinced, but I think the case for hyperbole has a good chance of faring a lot better in the fact of that objection than I was thinking before I read that conversation.
