Now, if I hadn’t followed a link from one of the blogs who did make the list, I wouldn’t have found it. (I will say that Tom Gilson’s Thinking Christian does deserve to be on the list.) Personally, I haven’t found 100 Christian blogs that I have found worthy of revisiting. So far, I’ve found less than a dozen that I’ve bothered to subscribe to, and I’ve let a few of those go. But then, I tend to be hard to please. I have a hard time with the American Evangelical culture, so it takes someone rare who can think beyond the mainstream to keep my interest. I also get easily bored with the whole emerging church crowd (what I have termed the emo-gent movement).
While I have checked out numerous blogs to find some good thinking material, I have been greatly disappointed. And, one of my favorite bloggers has at least temporarily turned his back on the blogging world. I read more science-related blogs than Christian, and I do frequent an atheist’s blog; besides being an old friend of mine, Mike is also a good writer and more interesting and thought-provoking than much of the pablum I find on the net.
So, I’m interested in checking out some of these “Top 100” blogs, in the chance (I do believe in some chance) that I discover something really good. (I’ll try not to let my failed exploration this morning into a couple on the list dampen my spirits.) Hopefully you don’t have my particular issues and will have an easier time finding something palatable on the list.
And yes, a few of these recent posts, while interesting enough, are to hide the fact that I haven’t had time to come up with any original material… I do plan a post or two on Dawkins’ The God Delusion, but there’s so much there to have fun with that I don’t really know where to begin…
