weekly monthly sporadic basis we have a post called “Around the Town” in which we draw your attention to some articles the contributors to The Two Cities have read that we think are worth your while. If you’ve read any of them, hopefully you agree. What you may not have noticed or ever clicked on is the blogroll at the bottom of our homepage. Each of links featured there is to a blog that at least one of our contributors frequents and which we recommend to you. In an effort to better acquaint you with them I’ll be briefly profiling them in a series of posts over the next few weeks. Without further adieu, The Two Cities blogroll…
Albert Mohler (albertmohler.com)–Mohler is a name that’s no doubt familiar to many readers of this site. He is the President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, KY), hosts a podcast five days a week, and frequently contributes a Christian worldview perspective on current events for major media outlets and talking head shows. His website contains a blog, podcast, sermons he’s preached, and a host of articles he’s written on a myriad of topics. If you’re looking for analysis from a Christian perspective on major events happening around the world, familiarize yourself with his website.
Gospel Coalition (thegospelcoalition.org)–The Gospel Coalition is “a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures,” according to their website. The Coalition was founded in 2007 by Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York and D.A. Carson, renowned research professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in the Chicago area. The TGC website contains blogs from quite a few contributors, book reviews, video clips containing helpful discussions on a number of issues, as well as information about their biannual national conference and regional conferences.
Reformation 21 (reformation21.org)–Reformation 21 is a self-described online magazine covering a wide range of subjects that encourages cultural engagement. The ezine authors come from a number of different denominational backgrounds, but each would be considered theologically reformed. The work of one author in particular is worth the time it takes to visit the site: Carl Trueman. The Chair of Church History at Westminster Seminary (Philadelphia, PA) has a keen mind for cultural analysis and an equally keen wit that makes his work an interesting and entertaining read. (If you’re looking for a book recommendation, a collection of Trueman’s articles entitled Minority Report is highly recommended.)
The Good Book Blog (thegoodbookblog.com)–This it he blog of the faculty of Talbot School of Theology at Biola University. The Two Cities is uniquely qualified to recommend this blog as we have personally taken classes from many of the contributing professors. The contributors represent a diversity of theological perspectives, but as each is committed to Biola’s doctrinal statement, each would be considered conservative. The diversity of content and the wealth of knowledge and experience Biola’s faculty bring to the blog make it worth a look.
Kim Riddlebarger (kimriddlebarger.squarespace.com)–The Riddleblog is the blog of senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, CA and co-host of the radio program White Horse Inn, Dr. Kim Riddlebarger. As the tagline at the top of the page will tell you, his blog is dedicated to reformed theology and eschatology. Several contributors to The Two Cities are indebted to Riddlebarger for that dedication to eschatology. His book A Case for Amillennialism is quite helpful in shaping the issue. Keep up with Kim via The Riddleblog.
