Well, it's been a while since I've posted one of these. My list has changed a little since last time, partly because some of the bloggers I would have previously mentioned now blog infrequently, if at all. I've also come across a few new blogs that I feel deserve a mention.
However, if this is the first time that you've come across my list of must-read blogs, here are a few caveats. Firstly, I tend to avoid any of the a-list bloggers. Anyone with a bigger audience than, well, me, doesn't need the free plug! ;-) In fact, I think that the only a-list that I regularly read is Scot. And I don't need to recommend him, because you already read him. Right?
Anyway, without further ado, here are my 7 current favourite blogs...
- Jesus Manifesto I think that Mark Van Steenwyk's Blog, in its various manifestations has been recommended by me more than any other blog. Mark is a kindred spirit, what some have come to call a 'submergent'. If you ever find yourselves in the dark hours, thinking, "I just wish there was more to read from Graham's perspective!" you now have it!
- Theo Geek Andrew claims to be a Protestant, but he's not a very good one! He'd make a better anabaptist. If you're interested in reading more from a perspective that sees faith as an active faithfulness to Christ, this is a great place to start.
- Jason Clark Jason has been on a numebr of previous lists. Quite frankly, I'm bored talking about him! I actually have a whole host of concerns about his current interest in 'Deep Ecclesiology', but I cannot deny the grace in Jason's life. He is 'Generous Orthodoxy' incarnate. Of course, I'm only in touch with him so I have someone to write the blurb for my first book! (Just kidding! Love ya', mate.)
- Transmillennial Transmillennial is the blog of Kevin Beck, COO of Presence International. He blogs on a wide range of topics, but his current interest seems to be in Agapetheism, which I share a passion for.
- Semper Reformanda Semper Reformanda is, it must be said, another fairly intense anabaptist-minded blog. Thom Stark has just finished undergraduate studies in theology and biblical literature at Ozark Christian College, Missouri. His interests are in John Howard Yoder and Pauline liberation theology.
- The Parish I guess you'd call Greg Horton's blog a 'post-Christian' blog. I'm not quite sure what the attraction is, aside from the real description of real faith struggles in the real world. Sometimes, it feels like Greg is two steps ahead of me, but we're walking the same path.
- Think Happy Is it wrong to plug one's own blog? Yes, yes, of course it is. What was I thinking?! The only thing worse than that would be to try and pressurise all of my readers to go and visit it, even if they do nothing more than click on the Google ads. Shameful!
Of course, there's also the following LwCers that I check out every time I sign in:
