Second Call: New Christian Blogs in 2012

Second Call: New Christian Blogs in 2012

A few weeks ago I invited new Christian bloggers (new in 2012) to leave a note here with their main URL and a link to their favorite post so far, so I could feature them here. I want to repeat that invitation in case someone missed it. It went like this: It’s December, which means it’s time for my third annual New Christian Blogs feature. I’ve had a great time with this the past two years, getting to know new…

Featuring New Christian Blogs in 2012

Featuring New Christian Blogs in 2012

It’s December, which means it’s time for my third annual New Christian Blogs feature. I’ve had a great time with this the past two years, getting to know new bloggers and spreading the word to others. If you or someone you know has started up a Christian blog in 2012, please leave a comment here with a link to one great post from there this year. I’ll link to all new Christian blogs and write featured reviews on several of…

Technorati Top Ten Today

Technorati Top Ten Today

This morning Thinking Christian is ranked #14 inTechnorati’s religion category. Four of the higher-ranked blogs are written from non-Christian perspectives, which means this one is in the top ten among Christian blogs there today. There’s no objective way to measure a blog’s traffic, quality, or importance relative to other blogs. Technorati is one of the more closely-watched attempts at doing the impossible. Undoubtedly its measures are skewed–especially by the fact that many blogs haven’t even opted in to the rankings…

Maintenance Accomplished

I have to make a hosting change. During that switchover comments will be disabled. They will return intact within 24 hours, if all goes well. You are now looking at this blog on its new server, and all functions have been restored.

Admin Note for Commenters

Admin Note for Commenters

I’ve just de-activated the “Comment Saver” plug-in, because it’s incompatible with this version of WordPress and could be causing back-end problems. The “Comment Saver” was there to store your comments in short-term cookies when you submitted them. That meant that if something went wrong with your submission, you wouldn’t lose what you wrote. I’m disabling that safety function now. I don’t know if WordPress has built in another means to accomplish the same thing.

More New Christian Blogs in 2011

Today I am at last finishing my series on new Christian blogs in 2011, with another six excellent blogs. Randy Everist is a frequent co-participant in the Christian Apologetics Alliance. His blog at Possible Worlds expresses his deep interest in theology and philosophy, as witnessed by his current critique of skeptic Michael Shermer (very effective), two recent posts on the Resurrection, a Brief Objection with respect to the Problem of Evil, and an offering on Beliefs, Free Will, and God….

To Catch a Breath

To Catch a Breath

After nine and a half weeks in a sprint, I might be able to slow down and breathe for a while now. I could be woefully over-optimistic in saying that, but I have hope anyway. It has been a very fun run. It’s not over yet, but it might slow down to a jog. On Christmas Eve morning I was struck with an idea for a book that needed writing. It needed to be done very quickly. By God’s grace…
