DET Enters its Teen Years

As of July 27, 2019, DET is officially a teenager.

Many things are different since I published the first post, way back in 2006—that's 13 years ago, for those who are (like me) bad at maths (as the Brits might say). But a lot of things are the same as well. I don’t think I’ve quite lived up to some of the promises in that first post, but – you live, you (hopefully) learn.

The blog has slowed down. I was a MDiv student when it started, and needed a place to interact with people an ideas. These days, however, I’m at a very different place in my professional life, with increasing administrative burdens directing most of my time and energy. As a result, I’ve writing about theology less and talking about it more. Some of you may be thankful (although, I’m sure some of you would rather not be afflicted) that I have started posting on YouTube and The McKrakenCast podcast. But if you prefer to just keep an eye on the blog, I’m posting all that material here too.

There are still some other contributors kicking around DET—Scott Jackson, principally, as well as others who send something in from time to time, or who appear as guests. DET remains multivocal. I definitely find it more interesting that way.

If you are interested in reading more about DET’s 13 year history, I recommend the birthday post from two years ago (we didn’t do one last year). That post will also link you back to a three-part series that Scott wrote about that history.

Finally, I leave you with a picture of what increasingly enters my mind’s eye—me as an old man. This gem comes to us thanks to complicated and exclusive age-advancement imaging, although I think it is probably a bit too optimistic about my future hairline…
