The Most Popular Posts of 2012

You may already be done with “best of 2012” lists. But this was a fun year on the blog, so I thought I’d offer a quick roundup of the most popular posts from the last year.

10. The Hardest Question in Theology

One of my favorite posts from the last year, this one takes a look at different ways of answering the “Why does God allow evil?” question by translating it into “Why does God allow cats?” Also a worthy question.

9. A Job That Matters: Taking the Image of God to Work

The first of two posts from our series on the image of God, here we look at what the image of God means for how we understand work and vocation.

8. What “Mainline” Does and Doesn’t Mean

Just a random post on what it means to call a church “mainline.”

7. John Walton and Tremper Longman on Genesis 1-2 (video)

The Northwest region of the Evangelical Theological Society met at Western Seminary last spring, and these are the videos from the plenary sessions on Genesis 1-2.

6. Image of God at the Kitchen Table

Here’s the second post from the image of God series, this time looking at how the image of God should impact parenting.

5. How bad is the job market for PhDs?

If you’re interested in or already pursuing a Ph.D., I apologize for this post. Kind of. It’s good information, but it can be rather sobering.

4. More Bad News on the PhD Job Market

If the first one wasn’t bad enough, here’s another.

3. The Psychology of Social Networking (infographic)

This was just one of those random posts that got shared quite a bit. And it does share some interesting information about how and why we use social media.

2. Young Men are Educationally and Relationally Doomed

Philip Zimbardo’s video on “The Demise of Guys” generated quite a bit of interest.

1. American Men Don’t Sing – Alistair Begg

The year’s most popular post comes from a sermon that Alistair Begg preached at Western Seminary. Although the sermon itself is well worth viewing, the key part came before the sermon even started, when Begg offered a few comments on why American men don’t sing in worship.
