My Blog and Social Media Resolution: Your Feedback Needed!

It’s hard to believe that this blog has now reached over 400,000 all time views. I’m pretty excited about that. But I think it can go to greater heights, and I’m asking for your help with that.

I have decided to commit to writing more on my blog (2-3 posts per week + the “Really Recommended Posts” each week). What would you like to see more of? What format of posts work best for you, as a reader? I will also try to focus each Monday on a lengthy, in-depth post, while keeping my other posts 500 or fewer words. What are your thoughts?

One way that I will increase the posting on this site will be to comment quite a bit more on what I’m reading. This will serve two purposes: it will give me a medium for sharing my thoughts and questions about reading as I’m going along, and it will also allow me to interact with you, dear readers, on the things we both think are interesting. I think that means it is a win-win situation.

I also want to increase the impact of this page and my twitter account. What do you like most about this page? What should I discuss or do more which would make it more helpful to you and your friends?

I do need your help. If you see something interesting here, please share it with others. Tweet it, put it on reddit, send it on facebook. I rely on you to help spread what I’m writing. I also rely on you to give awesome feedback and interaction to keep me thinking on various topics. Thank you so much for all your comments, sharing, and the like which you’ve done already. If you haven’t done so, please follow me on Twitter and Facebook. On both of these I share more links than I can here and I also frequently ask questions and start discussions, so check them out.

Please also take this post as a place for you to share your thoughts on my blog and ideas for it going forward. I’m going to work to increase my voice on here and elsewhere, and I need your feedback to help me.Thank you for any insight you may provide!

  1. I was wondering if there are any Bible teachers who consider the date of the crucifixion as extremely important?
    For me the April AD33 date being offered up is a problem because King Herod died in March, 4BC so two years before his death it is March, 2BC and so Jesus was seemingly about 38 years old at his death (which has to be wrong).
    And so AD70 when Jerusalem was destroyed it is only 37 years after the death of Jesus and not 40 years.
    The common date printed in the Bible’s in the 19th century, was April 7, AD30 for the death of Jesus. And I suggest that the baptism of Jesus was at about 8 am October 1, AD26, the 31st birthday of Jesus.

  2. I’d be interested in seeing something on the justice of the atonement. Perhaps centered around the challenge “how can punishing one innocent man somehow clear all guilty men?” I’ve heard some people lightly dabble with connecting it to vicarious liability in tort law (it may have been WLC) but I haven’t seen an in-depth exploration. I do understand that ultimately, we can’t really put God on ethical trial; however, I think that if we can construct a possible model, it could go a long way in answering this challenge. I’m a fairly new follower of your blog, so forgive me if you’ve already done something like this!

  3. I’m personally interested in ethics and Christian approaches to social issues. I would appreciate more posts in the vein of The Myth of Religion that you wrote based on Cavenaugh’s book. But that’s just me. I do like your weekly recommendations, too.

    Have you written for any online outlets or print media?

    • I admit that post is one of my favorites! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      I do also write for Hieropraxis and the Christian Apologetics Alliance (though I need to update on that ASAP!). As far as print goes, I just recently found out that an article I co-authored will be published in Fall 2014, so I’m fairly excited about it. I’m not sure I’m supposed to share the outlet yet, but be sure I’ll share it when I know I can!

  4. I’d be interested in an explanation of how the majority of Christians came to see human souls as being immortal by nature. It seems like the word “soul” carries with it the presupposition of immortality.
