My #NaNoWriMo project this year: #TheNewPacifism

NaNoRebel

For the third year in a row, I am participating in the NaNoWriMo as a Rebel, that is I am not writing a work of fiction, but non-fiction on the New Pacifism. I am hoping to get 30,000-35,000 words with the number of posts I wrote last year/will have up for this year. The project I have titled The New Pacifism: Discipleship and the Cost of Peace. I know that I am already way ahead of last year’s epic fail, and someday I may go back to completing that one when the time is right.

Synopsis:

“Incited by the popularity of contemporary visions of intersectional justice and liberation, and provoked by the ever looming questions people have about violence, the New Pacifism project seeks a new way forward beyond the trendy pacifisms of TheoBrogians, just war theory, and the imperial horrors of the Crusading tradition.”

I Joined #NaNOWrimo This Year: As a #NaNoRebel for Church History!

In case you hadn’t noticed a new logo on the side bar of this site, I have decided to do National Novel Writing Month this year, as NaNoRebel of course in Political Jesus fashion. National Novel Writing Month is a group of people dedicated to writing a fiction novel of 50,000 words or more for the month of November.

Taking a break from being a pop culturalist, I wanted to get back to my first love, Church History, and try do a possible book accessible for laypersons, but at the same time, challenge the way church history is being done. Right now, I am challenging the idea that church history starts with the Jewish and Christian split in the first century, as if Gentiles and Jews don’t have a back-story or context.

I promise to keep you all updated.

What would you look for in a church history book?
