Christian Scholars Directory: H-K

by Anna Blanch on June 21, 2010

The Christian Scholars Directory endeavours to include Christian sociologists, historians, economists, literary critics, Scientists and scholars (across a range of disciplines) it seems apparent is a Christian Scholar. The key is that they also have an online presence that is not merely a faculty profile. I am not the self-appointed arbiter of who is or is not Christian, by apparent I mean they say so.  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).

Steve Holmes Dr. Steve Holmes is a lecturer in Theology at St. Mary’s College, St Andrew’s, Scotland. His blog, Shored Fragments offers “fragments of theology,” that is to say:

This is a place where I record ideas that seem interesting enough to share, but are so minor, so undeveloped, or so exploratory, that they do not belong in any more formal published format.

This is a helpful caution to a reader who may expect more developed thought. He also develops his ideas on what it means to be a theologian.
