The Most Popular Blogs For Christians

Photo Credit: kpwerker
There are a countless number of blogs out in cyberspace that are written primarily for a Christian audience and/or from a Christian perspective. But which ones are the most popular?

Kent Shaffer of ChurchRelevance.com has once again taken on the mammoth task of attempting to answer this question by providing a ranking of the most-read blogs by Christians.

You can read his complete updated listing for 2012 here, but I've listed below his current top ten most popular blogs:
1. Between Two Worlds by Justin Taylor 
2. Michael Hyatt 
3. Faith & Reason by Cathy Lynn Grossman 
4. Tim Challies 
5. Fr. Z’s Blog by John Zuhlsdorf 
6. Stuff Christians Like by Jon Acuff 
7. GetReligion 
8. Albert Mohler 
9. DeYoung, Restless, and Reformed by Kevin DeYoung 
10. The Resurgence
Some of these names may be familiar to you whereas others you might not recognize. I encourage you to take some time to check some of them out. I regularly read a number of the blogs from Shaffer's Top 200 list and even though I don't endorse all that is written on these blogs, it is helpful to know what many people are reading.

Peace & Grace,

This is a very interesting and insightful blog. For more, read the blog by "Jesus' Disciple" @ WWW://thexpositor.wordpress.com/

Thanks!

Hey--any chance you could add us to your favorite links? :).

Your blog is really nice--and your audience seems like the type who might serve communities, not just in the church building but outside.

I wondered if there was any chance that you could add www.ChristianVolunteering.org to your list of weblinks/favorite blogs. Basically, for each person that clicks to the website, they average 5 hours of volunteering! :).

We've got a search by zip code, by country or by skill..maybe your friends and readers would be interested in volunteering to serve!

Thanks!
Becca

What a great Blog with some wonderful information.

Hebrews 13:16
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Believe those words and head on over to www.hybridhondas.com. Click on a link or two to help a fellow brother out so he can continue helping others.

Spread the word to other brothers and sisters.

Hello there,

I’m currently wrapping up a study of the end-times on my blog, Reflections on the Christ, at http://chasong.blogspot.com.

There’s been talk of guillotines being imported into the United States and other scary bits of news.

However, I am discussing about them from a prophetic point of view and hoping to stimulate more research and personal study of God’s word and the end times.

If you have the time, feel free to drop by, express your thoughts, and maybe even shed some light for others who come by. I’d be honoured.

Keep shining.

Cheers

Rick said...

Thanks for the list. I plan to drop by each one.

A New Creation said...

Hey guys, not sure if you are interested or not but I just became a Christian after being an athiest all my life! I am 29 years old. I have started a blog with loads of questions and comments about Jesus. I would love any comments or answers or prayers. I have only just come to Christ and I am full of God's love.

Alex said...

Great list of blogs.

@Anewcreation - That is really great news! I hope that you are finding peace with your new found faith. I know all of Heaven is rejoicing because you decided to follow Christ.

Hi, I'm a student at Tyndale university & seminary doing a thesis project about spiritual health and well-being. I hope to do research integrating Christianity and psychology to help understand some of the things we do that hinder our spiritual growth and maturity. I would really appreciate anyone who is willing to take some time to fill out my survey online (it takes about 30-40 mins). Thank you so much!! Blessings! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/carolinethesissurvey

I am new to blogging and appreciate a site that displays the most popular Christian blogs, giving me an idea of what is "hot" in Christian circles.

You might consider updating the "theme" of this blog to one of the new ones from Google.
