Theological Blogging


This semester I've been struggling to finish my Old Testament essay, "Themes and Theologies from Primeval Myths of the Ancient Near East." Partly, I think I'm just bad at traditional academic writing. So, I'm going to try to mix a couple of my passions - my blogging and my theological study. But I need some reader participation for this ...

I spoke to my professor about writing some academic-flavored blog posts in lieu of writing a term paper for next semester's New Testament class. He and I will determine an assignment of blog posts to write on the topics we'll cover in the New Testament. When I blog them, I will need at least some readers to ask me some follow-up questions in the comments, and that will instigate me into further research and response. I think it can work really well, based on my previous post on Genesis which got a good 16 comments.

So, how many of you could help me out with comments on some academic posts next semester? The number of comments to this post could serve as something of a trial figure, so please leave a comment here so I can show my instructor that this could work. Thanks.

I'm good for a question or two each blog, I think.

Count me in!

i don't check my blog a lot so you may have to let me know when you post something- but as long as i see it, i'll definitely comment!

Luke,

I'm happy to help with this. However, because of my own class load, reading blogs sometimes drops off. On week's when I'm really busy, I just clear my RSS list and pick back up the next week. All that means is that if you want to be sure I see one of your assignment posts, shoot me an email and I'll make a point of reading and replying.

I would be happy to help when I can. I would definitely be interested in reading, and will post any intelligent questions I can come up with! :) (No promises on how many that will be, though...)

If I have anything substantial to contribute, I'd love to help! :)
