Not a few bloggers (e.g., Chris Brady; James McGrath; Drew Tatusko) have been pointing to Anna M. Blanch’s ongoing review of Christian Colleges Top 100 Theology Blogs on her blog Goannatree. In the 12th post of her series she comes to the “writings” category in which my blog was listed and here’s what she had to say about it:
Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth: This blog provides an outlet for Nick Norelli’s book reviews on theological books. He also has an interesting array of links in his Scholar’s Corner section. This is the first blog that truly fits the “writings” category. His categories are the best part of his design which seems confused as to whether it is cartoonish or scholarly (he can have it both ways, i don’t mind). I like the header picture.
Making the Grade:
Scope – A
Quality – B
Theological Leanings – ? (NOT calvinist…)
I assure you, it’s all cartoonish! I must give credit for “recent commentations” to acclaimed rapper Ludacris for introducing me to the term “commentations” and Esteban Vázquez for urging me to use it as the title to the comments section of my sidebar. I’m also glad to fit the “writings” category (is that like the equivalent of Ketuvim?) because, well, I write stuff! That being said, her grade was fair, although an A++ would have been preferred for quality. Of course I’m a Pentecostal so “NOT calvinist” was definitely accurate while the question mark was a bit off the mark (btw, would the question mark best represent those pesky postmodern types? — Bryan L., what do you think?). In any event, if you were on that Top 100 Theology Blogs list then you might like to see how Anna graded your blog.
