I'm hesitant to post on top of Jeff's excellent post today (this might sound like shameless back-patting between co-bloggers, but I for one think he's been on a roll recently), but I'm going to do it anyway.
A couple things I want to point out:
1. A number of bloggers have noted their being featured in the christiancolleges.com list of the top 100 theology blogs. Well, CiC got in there at #12, which we're excited about. Eat that Scot McKnight, Koinonia, Parchment in Pen and Ben Myers (who are all lower than us) and Tim Challies, Reformation21, Al Mohler, Pyromaniacs, and Scriptorium (who are all not mentioned).
Seriously- has anyone else questioned the validity of this list considering the ordering and omissions I just mentioned?
2. If you haven't seen the series that Fred Sanders has been writing commemorating various important theologians over the course of church history, you should go check it out. My favorite so far is today's post on Phillip Jakob Spener, the founder of pietism whose ideas on what the church needed in the late 17th century are still so remarkably relevant.
The series really is well worth reading. It is unique, readable, and all-around helpful for those like me whose knowledge of church history is so painfully poor.
3. I'm not kidding- Jeff's post from earlier today (the one right below this one) is awesome. Go read it thoroughly if you skimmed it.
