In a recent post, The Biblioblog Top-50 vs. N.T. Wrong, Mark Goodacre notes the resurrected Wrong’s (The Bibliloblog Top-50’s) “failure to maintain the kind of subversive, counter-cultural, liberal persona” of his first incarnation. He’s “less fun” too. Is there something similar here to the historical vs. the resurrected Jesus? Perhaps even intended on the Kiwi’s part?
I’m glad to know Crossley’s SBL paper was well received. The nine-month phenomenon of N.T. Wrong merits the attention given by James. I find myself missing Wrong more and more each month, and oddly enough, having increased difficulty making the connection between the Biblloblog Top-50 and the first incarnation. But I suppose that’s as it should be.
