A new blog
One of my favourite new blogs is that of Josh McManaway, namely: A New Testament Student. I asked him to introduce himself and his blog
Having spent a while chatting with Josh via Instant Messenger I can tell you that he has a sharp mind. Be sure to give his blog a visit!
“In order to understand my blog, I suppose a little bit about me is in order. I’m 22 and in my 3rd year of study at Southeastern College at Wake Forest. I’m double-majoring in Biblical Studies and History of Ideas, which is essentially a “Great Books” program. I’m planning on pursuing a Ph.D in New Testament and eventually teaching at a university. I’m particularly interested in: inerrancy, textual criticism, history of doctrines, ancient Greek philosophy/literature, early Christian literature, and Jesus within His Jewish context.
I began reading blogs by guys like David Alan Black, Mark Goodacre, and of course, Chris Tilling [ed. comment by CT: 'a wise, agreable statement. Especially the "of course"']. However, I noticed there aren’t any academic (and I use this term loosely for my own blog) blogs by people who are pursuing an undergraduate degree. So, I started my blog in hopes that there’s an interest in reading what someone who’s just starting out is going through. Also, I consider myself to be extremely ecumenical in my thinking, so I hope to use this blog to further meaningful discussion between those who have varying ideologies. It probably also benefits my relationship with my girlfriend as I now have a whole new set of people upon whom I can unload my geekiness.”
