A post by Joe Carter at The Evangelical Outpost got me thinking today. Joe posts about the 100 Christian blogs that are most influential on him.

Joe writes:

This is not a list of the “best Christian blogs” (whatever that might mean) but rather the top 100 blogs that I have found to be the most convicting, enlightening, frustrating, illuminating, maddening, stimulating, right-on and/or wrongheaded by Christians expressing a Christian worldview.

The selection process is, by necessity, intensely personal and unapologetically subjective. There are a number of Christian blogs that are written by brilliant thinkers and stylists yet, for one reason or another, have not captured my imagination in the way that the following blogs have done. The list is also reflective of my rather narrow field of interests and associations. By and large, the bloggers that are included are from the conservative wing of evangelicalism and Catholicism. There is also a peculiar range of focus. Philosophical blogs are overrepresented, for example, while “This is where I’m at right now”-style introspectionists are all but excluded.

Below are Joe’s top 20:

1. Between Two Worlds
2. JollyBlogger
3. The Scriptorium
4. Challies.com
5. WORLD mag blog
6. SmartChristian
7. Prosthesis
8. Parableman
9. (Tie) Boars Head Tavern | Pyromaniacs
10. Acton Institute PowerBlog
11. Hugh Hewitt
12. Al Mohler’s Blog
13. Blogotional
14. Mark D. Roberts
15. Pseudo-Polymath
16. Mere Orthodoxy
17. New Covenant
18. In the Agora
19. ChristianThinker.net
20. Mirror of Justice

I have read a number of these blogs, and a few I still browse from time to time. Joe definitely swims in a different circle than I do, but there are some really good blogs there.

My top 20 are basically those found in my right sidebar (of my main blog):

1. Mark Driscoll’s Blog
2. Vox Pop – Mars Hill Blog
3. Between Two Worlds
4. Challies.com
5. Perry Noble
