Well, you are hearing it here first. Joel has officially lured me in with the temptation of his uncanny knack for getting free books. In a Facebook conversation yesterday, he told me he had some books he could send me right now if I’d contribute. So, here I am.
Two things I should note first:
1. I do not intend to stop blogging on my own; however, I’m in a bit of a transitional stage right now. When or if I finish my PhD, I plan to start a blog more representative of my own thoughts. I originally started FreeOldTestamentAudio.com as a resource site before I really knew anything about blogging in general or biblioblogging in particular. I plan to leave that site up as a resource site along with the blog archive. Considering the following Joel’s blog has compared to my current one, co-blogging here will give me a platform to launch my next site. Joel knows that my motives and doesn’t care.
2. The views represented by other co-bloggers on this site do not necessarily reflect mine; however, one of the things that I appreciate about Joel is his willingness to engage people of a variety of perspectives. Yet in all, my Christianity is not “Unsettled” as the tag for this blog might suggest. I am unapologetically Roman Catholic and accept the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I may make note of this in a disclaimer of some sort.
Okay. Now I’m going to let this sink in, so that perhaps you can get over the shock. My first step will be to CATHOLICIZE this blog a bit … Joel, you asked for it.
