Dale Allison on the rise of mythicism

I know I just posted about this, but Allison’s interview includes this snippet:

One more observation on the recent resurgence of the mythical point of view. It may be driven in part by the internet. In the past, most of the gatekeepers of the discipline—acquisitions editors—wouldn’t have been interested in the topic. The internet, for better and worse, has changed this. It’s now possible for a movement to make itself felt independently of the big publishers.
