Christian Scholars Directory: N-P

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 here  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). For an index to all the posts separated into alphabetical segments go here. I’m open to comments and suggestions, especially for additional blogs and sites (put them in the comments box or send them to!).
