Open Thread: Suggested Topics for 2013

Friends,

2012 marked the launch of the Questions That Haunt Christianity series, which has seen great participation in the comments by scores of you. That has challenged me as a theologian on a weekly basis. I both look forward to and dread Friday mornings, when I sit down to compose a 1,000-word response to these tricky and perennial questions. You can nominate new questions via my website.

Also, with the help of my editor Deb Arca, I launched the #progGOD Challenge, in which progressive theobloggers say something substantive about God. So far, we’ve hosted Who Is God? and Why an Incarnation? (Both are still open to submissions.) The next challenge will launch on Ash Wednesday.

As I look forward to 2013, I’m going to release a revised and updated version of A Better Atonement (also on Ash Wednesday), complete my next full-length book, Why Pray?, and write an ebook on communion.

I’m wondering what you’d like to read and discuss here at Theoblogy. More about spirituality? Less about politics? Silly videos that make Christians look dumb (just kidding — that blog genre is already overloaded). Drop a comment below and take part in shaping the conversation that we’ll have in 2013.

And thanks.
