by Anna Blanch on August 9, 2009

The Christian Scholars Directory endeavours to include Christian sociologists, historians, economists, literary critics, and other scholars it seems apparent is a Christian Scholar. For what I mean by that, look here. You can read the background of the directory in this Introductory Post which also provides an index to all the posts separated into alphabetical segments. I’m open to comments and suggestions, especially for additional blogs and sites (send them to goannatree_at_gmail.com or make a comment).
