Christian Scholars Directory: E-G

by Anna Blanch on June 21, 2010

The Christian Scholars Directory endeavours to include Christian sociologists, historians, economists, Scientists, literary critics, and any scholars it seems apparent is a Christian Scholar who have an online presence. 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. This is not exhaustive though it would nice for it to become a valuable resource in linking to scholar-blogs. I’m open to comments and suggestions, especially for additional blogs and sites (send them to goannatree_at_gmail dot com or make a comment).


Peter Enns – formerly professor of OT at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia). He currently does freelance writing and speaking. His blog discusses the Bible, particularly OT, and contemporary Christian faith. With a clear scope and methodology Dr. Peter Enns describes his blog as follows,

The focus of this website is Biblical Theology and Biblical Studies and how these fields interface with contemporary Christian faith.

The blog includes book reviews, scholarly articles, links and commentary on Enns speaking engagements and lectures. [Correction HT: Foolish Sage ]

Craig Evans – Professor of New Testament at Acadiau University, Nova Scotia, canada. Many powerpoint presentations on theologhical issues (new testament), as well as class materials on the new testament.


Phil Fernandes – Regent, Columbia Evangelical Seminary, Buckley, WA Large amount of audio and articles on apologetic and theological issues.

Paul W. Ferris – Professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota.  Good links to preaching resources, as well as excellent course materials for Old Testament classes.

Paul Fiddes Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Oxford; Director of Research, Regent’s Park College. Professor Fiddes is an ordained minister of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, and serves as the chair of the Doctrine Commission of the Baptist World Alliance. He is very active in ecumenical conversations, and is at present the co-chair of the international conversations between the Roman Catholic Church and the Baptist World Alliance, as well as an ecumenical representative on the Synod of the Church of England. During a post-doctoral year at Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen Fiddes undertook study with Jürgen Moltmann and Eberhard Jüngel. Consider this article by Kent Eilers on Fiddes perspective on “participation in God” while a list of his publications can be found here

John Frame – Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida. This site contains a very large amount of his articles on a wide range of subjects, from a very well respected theologian. More can be found throughout the site: Reformed Perspectives.John Frame also has another site with Vern Poythress that has links to a large amount of articles, talks and other material. Frame’s Theopedia article provides a significant number of external links to Frame’s work and presentations.

Ariel Fruchtenbaum – Visiting Professor at Tyndale Theological Seminary, Forth Worth, Texas. A selection of articles on biblical themes from a Jewish Chrisian perspective.

Mark D. Futato – Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. He is also serving as the acting Academic Dean. His site contains some personal information and a handful of essays.


Robert A. J. Gagnon – Associate Professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. His site has a lot of excellent material on Christianity and homosexuality.

Robert Gallagher – Assistant Professor of Missions and Intercultural Studies, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. Dr. Gallagher’s site has several articles on missions at his site.

Stephen Joel Garver – Assistant Professor of Philosophy, LaSalle University, Wsiter, Philadelphia, A good site with many articles and essays on religious and philosophical topics, and an interesting blog.

Norman Geisler – Former President of Southern Evangelical Seminary, well know Christian apologist now at the newly formed Veritas Evangelical Seminary in Southern California. Not much on his site by way of articles, but some good articles on the recent controversy over Clark Pinnock and John Sanders in the ETS and open theism.

Conrad Gempf– Lecturer in New Testament at London School of Theology, London, UK. He has a blog which he adds to often with devotional thoughts, and the site includes some articles and book information.

Mark Goodacre – Associate Professor Mark Goodacre, Duke University, offers a gatweay to NT resources in the form of the NT Gateway Weblog. This site has an abundance of excellent material on New Testament Studies from all over the Web, including some of Goodacre’s own articles, with a strong focus on Q and the Synoptics.

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.

Gary Gromacki – Associate Professor of Bible and Homiletics, Baptist Bible Seminary, Clark Summit, PA. Contains several of Dr. Gromacki’s articles, and information on his investigation of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Doug Groothuis – Professor of Philosophy ar Denver Seminary, and very well known Christian author. Site has many articles and book reviews he has published, focusing on Christian apologetics (also links to his wife Rebecca’s site).
