Second Blogiversary!

Happy Blogiversary! Two years old today

It’s been another year! Gaudete Theology is two years old today.

N. T. Wright’s “Big Book on Paul” was once again by far the most popular post on the blog this year, with nearly four times as many page views as the About page! So I’ve left it out of the year’s top ten most popular posts, because it’s clearly an outlier. 🙂

Aside from that post, the ten most popular posts this year include:
– one book review: Review: Four Views on the Apostle Paul

– two, or perhaps three, posts of particular interest to students:

Topics in Early Church History?
Models of the Church, part 1
Bible Translations: Formal or Functional?

– one post on hermeneutics: Hermeneutics, Suspicion, and Generosity

– two posts on discourse within the church:

Progress, or Promise?
Truth, Deception, and Abortion

– and three posts on feminist theology:

Rape Culture and the Construction of Virgin Saints
The Bride of Christ: a feminist reading
Sexual Assault and Women’s Agency, or, Desire and the Disrupted Mob: The Story of Thecla and Trifina

Of these, I think all three of those feminist theology posts are among the strongest I’ve written. The posts on models of the church, bible translations, and hermeneutics were written the previous year, as was the outlier post on Wright’s book.

Another post from my first year, Do Catholics worship idols, part 1 just missed the top ten (and I still haven’t written the next two parts of the series, eep). The page on my independent study last summer, Perspectives on Paul, is number 13; the page on my master’s thesis in Mimetic Ecclesiology is number 28 — still early days yet, I suppose!

My blogging has been a little spottier this year as work and other things have become more demanding, but I’m still enjoying what I write, and I hope you are too.

So help yourself to a piece of cake — if you’re a student, take two! along with my thanks for reading and commenting. If you had a favorite post here over the past year, or a suggestion for something you’d like me to write about, please share that, too.
