A Blogmentary On Romans

I don’t know if it is a good idea to announce one’s plans before one is really able to tackle them, but I’ve decided to take the risk. For some time I’ve had thoughts about Paul’s letter to the Romans that I’ve wanted to blog about at some length, and occasionally I’ve touched on some topics, but not in any great depth.

I know the idea is not new, but I’ve still been thinking what a great thing a blogmentary (does anyone have a better name for a blogged commentary?) can be. On the one hand, when (if) it is done, I can post a table of contents linking to the various pages in order. On the other hand, I can blog about specific passages when I have time and strong interest to do so. Perhaps what seems most interesting is that readers can not only use it as a commentary, and leave comments on the commentary, but can see how my writing on a particular passage relates to other things I was thinking (and thus blogging) about at that time.

So it may be a while in coming, and it will be a long time until it is finished, but I do hope to pursue a blogmentary on Romans, and perhaps other books of the Bible as well. I will be teaching a course on Paul’s letters next semester, and so this will be a nice way both to gear up for that and to reflect on it while the course is taking place.

    Sounds good – I’m looking forward to it.

    I hope you do it. I’ve been slowly working through Ephesians myself…though I don’t know if what I’ve done could be considered a commentary just yet. There’s more work to be done.
