You've read about it. You've waited five whole days for it. Now "Opposite Day" here.
Here's what we've got. This post will be updated over the next few days. If you opposite blog something, drop me a line (or a comment on this post) and I'll add your link here too.
- Rick Brannan (ricoblog, and your opposite-day host) introduces us to his friend Roberto, who writes about why Paul couldn't have written the Pastoral Epistles.
- Loren Rosson (The Busybody) introduces us to Leonard Ridge, who "will tell us why the social science models used by the Context Group are misguided, tools of hypertolerance, and intolerably racist".
- Jim West (Dr. Jim West) introduces us to an upcoming Czech scholar, Mij Tiew, who "will describe the necessity of adhering quite strictly to the exact text of the Hebrew Bible".
- Richard Anderson (dokeo kago grapho soi kratistos theolphilos) takes part in our fun little exercise as well.
- Danny Zacharias (deinde) introduces us to his friend, Hermann Acharias, who explains his "understanding of christian ethics and creation care".
- Rick Sumner (The Dilettante Exegete) introduces us to his friend Ryan Saunders, who offers "a criticism of [Rick's] approach to Jesus' eschatology".
- Stephen C. Carlson (Hypotyposeis) introduces us to Carl Stephenson, who tells us about the trustworthiness of Morton Smith and does some mental gymnastics in other areas pertaining to Secret Mark.
- Chris Tilling (Chrisendom) takes a little different tack and introduces us to his most insightful friend, Cardinal Spin, who shares "his considered thoughts concerning that most sensitive of subjects: ‘Christian counselling’ "
- Chris Weimer (Thoughts on Antiquity) introduces us to Brooks Vermuli, who "holds that the Gospel of Matthew was written by a self-identifying Jew".
Thanks to Loren, Jim and Richard for their support and opposite-day contributions. I'll update the above as I see the links come available. And if you opposite blog this week, please let me know so I can keep the list complete!
Update: Danny Zacharias joins the fun; I've added his opposite-day link above.
Update II: Rick Sumner (whose blog I am unfamiliar with) joins in as well. Who's next?
Update III: Stephen C. Carlson jumps in the fray and has some fun with Opposite Day. Anyone else?
Update IV: Chris Tilling provides us with a Tillingesque peek at ... well, you've just got to read it. Any other takers?
Update V: Chris Weimer is part of the act as well. Check out what he's got going. Note I'll keep updating this post as I'm made aware of opposite blog entries over the next few days, so keep 'em comin'!
