PandP Blogging community:

The problematic, infamous, seriously provocative, the I-only-wear-light-blue-jean-shirts professor Dan Wallace will be posting every Tuesday. He has tasted the blog world and he loves it! . . . well, maybe love is too strong a word, but he does like it . . . well, maybe I don’t know what he thinks, but nevertheless he is posting starting today! 

As you know, Dan has been with Reclaiming the Mind Ministries for some time now and has blogged here and there, but now he is going to start blogging every week!

The first blog will be posted shortly, but I need your help! Dan used to have a section on bible.org called “Prof’s Soapbox.” I want the PandP regular Tuesday post to have a pithy title. Help me come up with something. 

Ideas:

  • Callin’ the Kettle Dan
  • Dan’s Reckoning
  • Wallace Contra Mundum

Now, give us some more ideas!

      Michael is a Mercedes man. Rhome is fond of Porsche. But Dan’s heart belongs to BMW. With that, I offer the following (tongue-in-cheek) name for the blog of Daniel B. Wallace:

      DBW: Sheer Blogging Pleasure

      I’ve ridden in Dan’s Z4 many times. And I’ve been disabused of seeming certainty more than once by his probing theological questions. Let’s just say that readers of this blog are in for a fun and bumpy ride!

    • Ed Komoszewski

      I just thought of another tongue-in-cheek title. Not long ago, Dan showed me an e-mail that he received from a prominent textual critic in the UK. I got a chuckle out of the fact that he addressed Dan as “Danny” (I never heard that one in the halls of Dallas Seminary!). Playing off of Mitch Albom’s bestselling book-turned-movie, I give you the following blog title:

      Tuesdays with Danny!

    • Ed Komoszewski

      Here’s a more serious suggestion:

      Contra Mundane

      As we all know, Dan Wallace is often provocative, sometimes controversial, but never boring!

      I like the play on Athanasius’ “Contra Mundum” (“Against the World”).

      Another play on Athanasius’ work could be this:

      Contra Humdrum

      It captures the same idea with a different sound.

    • stevemoore

      Prof’s Soapbox were some of my all time favorites from bible.org. Ok, here’s some, no statement about their quality however:

      Dan-O-Mite ! (must be said with _feeling_)
      Wallace and Blog-it (ala http://www.wallaceandgromit.com/)

      Hmmm… ok, maybe not so funny. Back to the drawing board.

    • C Michael Patton

      I like those Ed – the last ones. Steve . . . um, get back to me when you come back from the drawing board 🙂

      OK, Dan is going to post under the “placeholder” title (“Contra Mundum”) today, but keep the ideas for a new title coming!

    • richards

      How about…

      1. Adversus Haereses Pattonae
      2. Manuscript Dan
      3. Dan the Man(uscript)
      4. Infallible Dan
      5. Dan Wallace: Martin Luther for the 21st Century
      6. Beyond the Basics
      7. Exegesis You Can Trust
      8. Mental Calisthenics
      9. The Teacher

      — Mac Danny (can a macintosh actually make posts?)

      — Testament Tuesday

      — Critic’s Corner

      — What Michael Really Meant to Say Was ……

    • C Michael Patton

      Chad, that last one is great! lol

    • C Michael Patton

      Richard, “Adversus Haereses Pattonae.” YES!

    • Chad Winters

      Well Michael, you know a day where we don’t get to tease you is a day in the Loss column!!

    • C Michael Patton

      How about,

      “Lost in the Wilderness”?

    • forhisglory

      How about “Textual Variants”? 🙂

    • forhisglory

      or “The Koinesphere”…..

    • Ed Komoszewski

      An amusing site selling “Daniel B. Wallace Fan Club” T-shirts uses a clever title:

      To Koine a Phrase

    • Dan Wallace

      To Koine a Phrase–that’s hilarious! But I really don’t care for fan clubs of us mortals. We’ve all got feet of clay–or, in my case, athlete’s feet with a bunch of crud from walking the streets of Athens today.

    • C Michael Patton

      Well, are we going with Contra Mundane? If so, I would like you to know that I came up with Contra Mundum and Ed just edited my code. I have copyright on this and think that I should get credit in eternity. Objection noted?
