by Anna Blanch on August 8, 2009

The Christian Scholars Directory endeavours to include Christian sociologists, historians, economists, literary critics, and other scholars it seems apparent is a Christian Scholar. I am not the judge of who is or is not Christian, by apparent I mean they say so.

The New Testament Gateway is a comprehensive directory of academic internet resources related to the New Testament. It is divided into several sub-directories and dozens of pages, each relating to a specific topic. Every link is annotated. The annotations help users to pinpoint the information for which they are looking. The New Testament Gateway focuses on resources that will be of interest to both scholars and students of the New Testament.

This is a great resource but it is more a hub and list of links to other resources and so technically isn’t a scholar-blog. Mark Goodacre’s NTWeblog is probably more appropriately include on this list.
