Christian Scholars

This is one of three Christian resources blogs I maintain (infrequently), the others being Christian Journals and Christian MP3s. I am conservatively evangelical, but I will add links to blogs that are not necessarily so (which is to say, with the usual disclaimer, I may not agree with everything in the journals listed in the entries below). I hope that you find this resource helpful, and any feedback and suggestions is welcomed.

100 Scholars Listed

With that last post, the site hits the 100 scholars listed mark. Here's to the next 100. It's good to see many excellent scholars starting to get up and running with their own sites or blogs...for a relatively little work it can make a big impact.

Again, I'd love to know of any more links that you have.

Second Update for the Day

Just a few more sites...

Telford Work Professor of Theology, Westmont College, Santa Barbera, California. An impressive amount of materials and a wide range of issues from a Christian perspective, as well as a regularly updated blog.

Kent C. Anderson Dean of Northwest Baptist Seminary. A wide range of materials on homiletics.

Donald Whitney Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. Articles, sample books chapters and class materials covering aspects of Christian spirituality.

John Frame and Vern Poythress Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida and Professor of New Testament Interpretation , Westminster Theological Seminary, Glenside, Pennsylvania respectively. An interesting new site that will contain many articles and essays form these two excellent scholars.


Although it almost need not be stated, I obviously do not necessarily agree with the writings of all the scholars included here. They are included because they

1. Study theology and write on it.
2. Have sites with relevant, free material for others to access and read.

Personally, I am firmly evangelical, holding a high view of the inspiration and infallibility of Scripture, the full divinity and humanity of Christ, the necessity of a substitutionary atonement, the reality of both the virgin birth and the bodily resurrection of Christ, the reality of heaven and hell, the triunity of the Godhead, and the second coming of Christ. Basically, I am a conservative, evangelical (and some may even say fundamentalist, in the good sense of the word - i.e. holding firmly to the fundamentals) Christian. However, theologians of differing theological outlooks are included here, as their works should be discussed and debated.

Anyway, just thought I should list that little disclaimer.
