I both love and hate the Internet...but most of the time I love it.

Above all else, I really enjoy reading blogs. Specifically, blogs written by people from different theological backgrounds who live in different areas of the country/world. I can think of no better way to keep up with what's going on in the world of Christendom than by reading blogs. I have also really enjoyed being able to download audio and video from various sites for use in class or in teaching prep. So I offer you, my friends, two of the main blogs I read. May they challenge and encourage you as they have me.
This blog is done by a guy named Scott McKnight who is on the more liberal side of the emergent movement. He is a professor of Bible at a school in Chicago and also serves as a pastor. He frequently posts excerpts from books or articles that challenge the fundamentalist assumptions of most Christians. While I disagree with much of what Mr. McKnight believes theologically, I do respect his attempts to reach out to unbelievers. I have found his site to almost always be an interesting read.


The Resurgence is a blog that is run by several young Pastors, most of whom are from the Pacific Northwest. It is far more theologically conservative than JesusCreed, but a bit more culturally liberal. It has tons of resources dealing with different topics, some a bit more controversial than others. I find it to be a refreshing read because it tends to focus on the missional aspect of the Christian Life born out of a love for the Word of God.

Anyways, here's a window into my world. Feel free to explore it and discuss it with me (or yell at me) over email if you want.
