I understand that BH wishes to keep a narrow focus, and there are good reasons to do so.
However, there have already been questions tried here that could have merit in a more broadly-based forum. Therefore, I would like to propose a new site, something like "Bible Study", "Bible in General" or "Biblical Interpretation" (I'm not great with naming things). Its center is Biblical texts and how to derive meaning from them. Questions on all things Bible would be on-topic.
One key feature would be that opinion, tool, and list questions would be welcome. Here are a few:
- What are some good computer programs for Bible study?
- What is the best introductory book on Biblical Hermeneutics?
- Does Reader-Response criticism stretch the "meaning" of a text too far?
- How do I get started doing "serious" bible study?
One of the requirements for a new site proposal is to get five people willing to "follow" it. Thus, I am casting my line here to see if anyone else might have an interest in such a site.
I will check back in a few days to see what happens.
