Christian Scholars Directory: L-M

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).


Richard Land – Distinguished Visiting Professor of Christian Ethics, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. Many resources on current issues about ethics and religious liberty from a conservative evangelical perspective.

Francis N. Lee – Former Professor of Systematic Theology at Queensland Presbyterian Theological Hall, Queensland, Australia. A wide selection of articles on theology with a Calvinistic emphasis.

Peter Leithart – Senior Fellow, New St Andrews College, Moscow, Idaho. Dr. Peter Leithart, who was awarded his PhD from Cambridge is a prolific scholar-blogger. He has taught Theology and Literature at New Saint Andrews College since 1998, and since 2003 has served as pastor of Trinity Reformed Church in Moscow. A blog on theological and cultural issues, and a lot of articles on many theological themes.

Steve W. Lemke – Professor of Philosophy and Ethics, New Orelans Baptist Theological Seminary. Many essays on aesthetics, ethics philosophy and theology.

Kevin Alan Lewis – Assistant Professor of Theology & Law at Biola University. The site contains downloads and handouts, as well as links to theological, philosophical and legal sites.

Bryan Lilly – a Graduate student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Katagraphais offers the thoughts of a student thinking out loud. Lilley describes his blog as follows:

ΚΑΤΑΓΡΑΦΑΙΣ is a Greek phrase which can be translated “according to the Scriptures.” This blog will be a place where I share ideas, thoughts, and reflections on issues dealing with Christianity, Biblical studies, culture, etc. It is my hope that everything I do is grounded in the Christian worldview, and in order to be so properly grounded, all things must be anchored in the ancient Scriptures which God has revealed to us through the inspired writings. As such, this blog will be a record of the things I am learning (and sometimes relearning!) through Scripture, discussions on the culture we find ourselves living in, and a place to provide links, information, and resources on the reformed faith and cultural commentary.

David Linden – Action International Ministries. Links to Theological articles, including commentaries on Isaiah and Hebrews, with many other articles.

Bill Loader – Professor of New Testament, Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia. Dr. Loader’s site contains many materials on the Christian faith, including an online book outlining what the Christian faith is.

Mark Matson – V.P. for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean, Milligan College, TN. Many articles and book reviews with an emphasis on the Gospels.

Wayne McDill – Senior Professor of Preaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina. His site has over a dozen articles on preaching, evangelism and pastoral care, as well as a book on preaching available for free download.

Dr. James McGrath – associate Professor of Religion at Butler University, writes Exploring Our Matrix about exploring the theological aspect of his “matrix” or “world.” The blog is primarily a commentary on popular culture, Christian sub culture, and the responsibilities of Christians to act redemptively when interacting with culture. The header design is striking but the rest of the design is difficult to follow and it is not apparent if there is a clear scope or structure to provide a coherent structure. Also writes on a series of other blogs.

Ross McKenzie – Physics Professor at the University of Queensland. His research interests are quantum physics and the intersection between theology and science. This is his personal blog.

Scot McKnight – is the Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University. His blog is named after one of his books, Jesus Creed.

His blog, Faith & Theology, is an excellent example of scholarly dialogue. It provides a forum for conversations about theology, books and culture.
