I never really thought I would be here, in this place wondering what is next. When we left Aberdeen it was in hopeful anticipation of the next step almost being an immediate thing. At first it was a bit disappointing…. ok really disappointing. I really didn’t have much time to reflect on what was next. […]
About Josh Carroll
Josh is a PhD Candidate in the NT Department at the University of Aberdeen, UK. More importantly, he is a husband to his awesome wife Melodie and the father of three energy filled young boys.
Lately I’ve absent from Two Cities due to some intense life stuff. I wrote this blog trying to process a few things last week. My Facebook friends know the insane details of our difficulty with Melodie’s illness. This is the flip side of what has been happening in my life: Last month was, perhaps, the […]
I’ll admit, lately I have become a bit obsessed with my beard. Strangely, this unruly hair that is growing out of my face has captivated my attention, adding a minutes to my daily grooming schedule. For people that don’t know me that well this is a pretty big deal. It’s true, I am a clean […]
For the past few years, I have been pretty intensely involved in a particular field of academics that generates a ton of monographs, books, and other book-like-things every year. One of the great ways us young academics can get our name listed along with all other rockstars of the Biblical studies field is to review […]
I received this invite for a cool conference opportunity from my friend Andrew: Good morning, and greetings from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC! I hope you are doing well. We at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary are pleased to announce the 2016 SEBTS PhD Symposium Competition on A Theology of Faith, Work, and […]

It was a unique affair with testimonials that praised Joe-Bob’s happy outlook on life, his ability to hold his alcohol, and his consistent appearance at […]
I first received the news of Howard Marshall, one of the most influential New Testament scholars in the world, passing away late Saturday night. Several blog posts are cropping up containing tributes and summaries of his life and work. In this blog post, I thought I might add a few personal notes about my experience […]
As I am working my way through my PhD thesis I constantly run into profitable but extremely distracting side topics. These are topics that I would love to follow but, in my need to stay focused, I have to put on my blinders and make somewhat of an attempt to stay on topic. Today I […]
The Carroll family is beginning our 4th year here in the UK and there are still a few things that confuse me. It might be that I never took enough time to delve into the mechanics of these things, maybe someday I will. But for now I’d rather rant about their inaccessible (in my eyes) […]
At the time of writing this blog I am sitting outside of the secondary venue at the Keswick Conference in the Lake District of England waiting for the main speaker to begin his sermon. I just listened to an older white guy warm up the crowd with a vigorously spoken word concerning God’s preeminence over […]
