Disclaimer: Though I’m linking to these sites, in no way, shape, or form do I agree with *everything* they write. In some cases, I don’t agree much at all with what they write!
A New Kind of Politics: Exquisite commentary
Albert Mohler: President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He always tells it like it is, no frills or sugar-coating.
Between two Worlds: I always find his links useful and informative. Thoughtful commentary on life and theology.
Boundless Line: Biblical commentary for youngsters like me (read: 15-35-ish. It’s true for everyone, though, so don’t let age stop you from visiting!).
Christian Theology: The folks at apologetics.com are sharp.
A Boomer in the Pew: David Porter is leaving quite an eternal legacy on his blog. I like this guy.
Doug Geivett: I have taken a few of Dr. Geivett’s philosophy classes, and I always come out a better man. He has helped me worship God with all my mind.
Ethos: Randy has a wide array of interests such that anyone, Christian or non, can find something to enjoy.
Evangelical Outpost: John Mark Reynolds’ blurb says it all–”like Dante for those with Attention Deficit Disorder.”
Flowrestling: Videos, interviews, and blogs for wrestling junkies like me.
Hotair: Giving the New York Times a run for their money.
Hugh Hewitt: Two words–the man. I can learn lots about politics and media from this fella.
Ken Fleck: Hang around this site for too long, and you just might find that you have become a Jesus freak. His passion is contagious, and that’s a good thing. He is a very dangerous man, in the good sense of the word.
LaShawn Barber: She is bold. She tells it straight, no punches pulled. In particular, I really appreciate her commentary on the Duke Lacrosse faux-rape scandal. She called it right from the beginning, and never waivered in her assessment.
Mark D. Roberts: His series on The DaVinci Code was very well done. I find lots of his material truthful. I used his book for my research project on the canon of Scripture.
Michelle Malkin: Always in the know. Very feisty. I read her blog daily.
Patterico: More than pontifications.
Power of Suggestion: Another great blog by the bloke who brought you “A New Kind of Politics.” What’s there not to like about Charles?
Rhett Smith: A blogging pro.
Scriptorium Daily: The folks at Scriptorium are always a pleasure. One word comes to mind when I think of John Mark Reynolds: balance. He lays it out in plain language, but avoids exaggeration and is quick to give charity. That’s a great combination.
Stand to Reason: Always, always, always, penetrating. I’ve been an str fan ever since my college days.
Thattheymayb1: Ed Nicholson is an old friend of mine. The guy’s a hard working student of the truth and researcher. I also contribute over there from time to time.
The Lesnet Family: Chad pointed the way in a time of need. I am eternally grateful. This blog is mostly about his family life.
The Corner at National Review: Look here for timely commentary from a conservative point of view.
Public Discourse: I’m a Robert George fan. I mainly read it for his stuff, but there usually is something wise and poignant from the other fellas and ladies there.
HiScrivener: Not only is his writing truthful, but its darn entertaining too. I enjoy his wit and turns of phrase.
Tim Challies: His review of *The Shack* was absolutely stellar and absolutely necessary. He’s the go-to guy on any number of hot button issues.
Urban Conservative: Hey, we need more urban conservatives. I applaud the folks here. Great stuff.
Verum Serum: Ever since they posted on the economic crisis in the fall of 2008, I’ve been a fan.
The Volokh Conspiracy: Another great keen mind. They are trustworthy, period.
4 Simpsons: Neil possesses a sharp mind. He scrunches so much good stuff into so few words. He cuts right to the quick. He is able to stand toe to toe with the staunchest critics, yet he does so with grace. I especially appreciate whenever he posts on abortion.
Rediscovering the Church: Peter is a good guy who has embarked on a great journey. I really appreciate that he’s a stay at home dad. Kids need their dads these days, and he’s taking the call seriously. Stop on by and say hi.
John Dyer’s blog Don’t Eat the Fruit is such a necessary addition to the blogosphere because he is able to step back and question our technology choices. Far from being a luddite, he’s a pretty tech savy guy himself. After reading his post on “Five things the Church Needs to Know About Technological Change,” I was sold.
A-Team blog: I was in an apologetics class at my church with Roger from the A-Team blog a while back. He’s a sharp dude. He reads like a machine. Amy, another contributor, works for Stand to Reason. I’m glad she’s on our side; I wouldn’t wanna mess wit’ her if I was an atheist. They blog on a wide array of cultural issues, and they always bring a strong Christian worldview to the table. Roger reviews many, many books, so be sure you stop by before you buy any Christian book out there. He just might be able to give you a preview.
Go check out Mr. Dawntreader’s site. What sold me on his blog is the sheer breadth of his blog. Check out the mile-long tags list! It’s quite a cornucopia of topics.
Answers for the Faith is inspired by 1 Peter 3:15 and Jude 3; both Scriptures exhort followers of Christ to contend for the faith with an honorable disposition and mindset…and that is just what Michael does. His posts are to the point, relevant, and solid. His series on the “lost gospel” of Judas Iscariot is great. Go check him out.
The Wintery Knight. I have no idea where he got the name, but it’s catchy. Plus, the guy’s scrappier than the black knight from Monty Python. He knows his way around apologetical issues and can give you some good food for thought.
Muddling Toward Maturity The tag cloud alone boggles my mind! Unmuddle, as he is affectionately known, writes prolifically. On his “about me” page, this stuck out to me:
“Muddling toward maturity” is something we all do. If your goal is like mine, you wish to see life ever more clearly, and to live in greater harmony with the deepest reality of the universe, revealed to us (I believe) through the pages of the Bible as the one true God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I have a lot to learn, and I am eager to learn from any number of would-be mentors. This blog represents day-to-day musings on politics, sociology, theology, ethics, media, and . . . you name it!
Miss Marprelate (aka Rebekah) runs a blog cut out of a similar vein. She hails from up north (no, not the state of M*^h&ga*…Canada!), and brings a keen mind to subjects such as abortion, marriage, homeschooling, and a host of other hot-topic subjects. I highly recommend that you add her to your readers today.
Truthbomb Apologetics is another must visit website. One of the many things I like about Chad and co. is that they regularly feature content from the best of the best in defense of the Christian faith. A lot of the stuff they feature is hard to find, too. Stop on by and be encouraged.
Kryptonsite: I’m a Smallville junkie. I don’t know what to do with myself when the episodes aren’t new. Actually, I’m just kidding on that…but I am a big fan.
Daily Kos: I rarely agree with these folks. But, they sure know how to run a blog, so here you go.
Jennifer Roback Morse: She has some great material on marriage, family, and gender.
Ravi Zacharias: I respect this man greatly. Always ready with an answer seasoned with grace and truth.
Alvin Plantinga: One of the premier theistic philosophers of today. Atheists really don’t know what to do with this guy. AKA: Abraham Lincoln’s stunt double.
Episteme Links: Many philosophy resources.
Faith, Film, and Philosophy: Combining the Christian worldview and philosophy to bring deep commentary on film.
J.P Moreland: Another great ambassador for Christ. I look up to this man more than he knows. He has a big crown waiting for him.
Philosophical Films: There’s so much ho-hum commentary on film these days, it’s a pleasure to see some actual thinking going on about an industry that is anything but surfacy.
Plato: Second only to Jesus in philosophical greatness.
William Alston: Another great theistic philosopher.
Reasonable Faith: I’m darn glad William Lane Craig is a theist and a committed Christian. Great heart, dangerous mind (again, in the best sense of the term).
SOCIAL MEDIA 101:
Chris Garrett: He knows what he’s talking about, and he’s friendly to boot.
Koka Sexton: Some of his posts helped me get started. In particular, he pointed me to stumbleupon. Another friendly and knowledgeable voice.
Tiffany Monhollon: She gave me some great tips on commenting. I have found many of her posts useful.
SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT:
Plain View: Ichabod and I agree on more things than I first thought. We, in the end, come from different worldviews, but I still enjoy having him as a conversation partner every now and then.
Pun Intended: Funny stuff. I laughed embarrassingly hard when I read their open letter to Will Ferrell.
THOU CONVINCETH ME TO BE A CHRISTIAN:
Christopher Hitchens: I’ve written many a post on this fella.
Richard Dawkins: I’ve also written many a post on this guy. One of the “new atheists.”
