2008 was a good year for FPR. We gained three new permanent bloggers, Secco, David Clark, and The Yellow Dart, though we lost Chris H. to his own personal blog. We also had our 500th post on our three year anniversary. Below, I collected some of my personal favorite posts of 2008 for your rereading pleasure, or in case you missed them. Please feel free to add any others that I didn’t put on the list that you enjoyed at FPR this year. (For the sake of objectivity, I did not include any of my own!) In no particular order:
Tips on Applying Series, by SmallAxe
Nothing Wavering, by James bar Joseph
Catholics and Modernity series, by Mogget
Uzzah Killed for Blind Obedience, by Secco
BYU Religion Dean on Premortal Life series, by Jupiterschild
Why the Redistribution of Wealth, by Chris H.

I am honored to have made the list. Happy New Year.
Children and SSM: An Analysis of “The Divine Institution of Marriage” by TT was one of the best ever.
Thanks for the roundup, and congrats on a great year. I generally just lurk here and don’t comment very often, but appreciate the work you all do here at FPR.
Fun list! Some of my favorite FPR posts in the last year include the following:
The Future of Heavenly Mother
The Problem with LaughterThe Terrible 90’s for Mormon Scholarship
You liked my post? Thanks! I should probably do the follow-up post I said that I would do. I actually didn’t really like my post that much. Probably because it didn’t have enough footnotes or something…
I particularly enjoyed these:
SmallAxe’s The Perils of Parallel-o-Mania
Jupiterschild’s Passivity and Practice
TT’s Righteous Dissent
Also several others you already listed. Especially the “Nothing Wavering” post. That made me laugh until I cried!
You all are consistently enjoyable to read. Sorry I only ever comment once in a blue moon. I’m in over my head around here. 🙂
Oooh, those are good ones! Thanks for contributing!
