I met a new writer today, and I’m hooked. A link on another site led me to the “Omega Course.” Helen Ingram is using the blog format to write a novel about Jesus and Magic.
A year ago I was in Scotland and learned that the church there was using the Alpha Course as a nonthreatening way of introducing people to the life of following Jesus. The Alpha Course has been around for a while, and it seems to be fairly popular.
The Omega Course is a way of introducing interested readers to the life of scholarship about Jesus and biblical studies.
It’s a success. Helen has got me hooked. I like her writing.
Of course, in the upside-down world of blogging you have to go back to the beginning and start reading from the bottom up. The first post is “Biting the Bullet” from February 15, 2009.
