The Year in Blogging: Top Posts…with Goodies!

I passed a decade as a blogger this year. My first post was on January 25, 2004. Since then, I have published 2,747 posts and collected nearly 50,000 comments. Probably even more momentous, I’ve nurtured some thoughts on the atonement from blog posts to an ebook to a major release from HarperOne, coming March 24. If that’s not enough to make you believe in the power of blogging, I don’t know what is.

My posting frequency was down in 2014, especially in the second half of the year as I was redrafting the book, then revising it. Blogging has changed a lot in the last ten years, and now that I’ve sent off the final revisions on the book (yesterday), I’m going to consider how to reenter the blogosphere. I would love to hear from you, readers, about what you’d like. Would you like me to bring back “Questions That Haunt Christianity“? Would you like a lectionary series? Dispatches from the road? More posts about hunting?

You will, I am sure, be able to enjoy some posts about the book as its release draws nigh, so gird up your loins for that. And be sure to sign up for the mailing list below if you want to hear about special deals on the book when it comes out.

And now, here are my most-trafficked posts from 2014:

Limping Into the New Year — A Christmas Diagnosis

I am limping out of 2014 and into 2015. One week ago today, I had foot surgery, and I’m just now able to put weight on that foot. I’ll be in a boot for several more weeks as the bone that was cut regrows around the pins that should now keep it straight.

I am also limping out of the year spiritually.

Is Rob Bell This or That?

So, Rob Bell has a TV show coming out on December 21. This is the most long-awaited show in the history of Christendom. Ever since he moved from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Laguna Beach, California, from churchland to Hollywood, we’ve been waiting for his show. His first show — a drama — was shelved. His second show has been worked and reworked since it was filmed last summer. And now it’s coming out.

Also, he’s got a new book out.

So what do you supposed is the evangelical reaction to the amazing success of one of its own? To disown him, of course!

Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a Subtitle

I am in the final throes of edits on my next book — what promises to be my most important book. I’ve made no secret of the title, Did God Kill Jesus? And now, after much thought and several rounds of back-and-forth with the publisher, I can reveal the subtitle:
