Best Religious Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Religious Blog. This is a return for a category that was dropped last year. Our objection was that most of the nominated bloggers were not primarily religious bloggers, but were usually mostly news and politics bloggers. We'll be watching the nomination pool this year to see if the religious blogger community is larger than it was two years ago.


Best Large Blog
Best Mid Major Blog
Best Mid Minor Blog
Best Small Major Blog

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If put more than 10 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

I nominate the JewWishes blog in the Best Religious Blog category.



Talk Wisdom

Talk Wisdom's goal is to defend the tenets and values of Biblical Christian faith - especially when speaking out against destructive social and political issues. As his followers, we should boldly stand up for Jesus Christ in our present circumstances. He is our Savior, Lord, and King, and His love needs to be shed abroad in our hearts and in our world - now.

I nominate 4 Simpson's Blog: Eternity Matters.

Eternity Matters blog is a wonderful Christian site that is devoted to Jesus Christ. The blog owner, Neil, is open to discussing and debating the important social, moral, political, and spiritual issues of our time.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart - (Psalm 37:4)

I nominate Culture Watch

Bill Muehlenberg's blog is a website devoted to exploring the major cultural, social and political issues of the day. It offers reflection and commentary drawing upon the wealth of wisdom found in the Judeo-Christian tradition.

It offers reflective and incisive commentary on a wide range of issues, helping to sort through the maze of competing opinions, worldviews, ideologies and value systems. It will discuss critically and soberly where our culture is heading.

A Jewish Blog: The Blog at 16th and Q.

Joo-Tube - The Joos' News

Joo-Tube provides a contemporary perspective from history's most maligned faith.

We offer an outreach to learn about the oft-scapegoated Jewish faith & culture firsthand (and sometimes serve to expose the scapegoaters).

Joo-Tube serves as an ambassador to people of all faiths from around the globe. I film and show (religious and cultural) sights and insights otherwise inaccessible (such as our orthodox, Feast of Tabernacles' Torah worship service; or exclusive, 30 min video interview with the Holy Land-based Chairman of El Al Israel Airlines).

Please choose Joo-Tube: "Three thousand years of beautiful tradition - from Moses to Sandy Koufax"

I wish to nominate Amateur Catholic The B-Team the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

Christianblog is simply the best site I've ever seen for sound theological blogs, interesting discussions, and an intimate community of brothers and sisters in Christ. Probably the best part of Christianblog is the tireless monitoring by a dedicated team. We all feel completely safe to be a member of the CB family, and precisely that is who we are to one another: family.

I wholeheartedly nominate

With over 6,500 active members now and more joining everyday, is a highly subscribed to blog that is open to individual bloggers of any Christian denomination. It is well organised, quick and easy to navigate. As a blog in the religious genre, it is one of the fastest, if not THE FASTEST growing.

There is always something new and engaging to read. From the difficult questions in life to the issues of a postmodern society, inspiring testimonies and touching moments; there is a category for every sort of blog and even a dedicated home for open discussions. A team of volunteers monitor and moderate entries and comments, maintaining balance and impartiality. This is by far the safest place to blog.

I have been greatly blessed as a member of Christianblog's genuine global community. For a serious Christian blogger or the casual reader, and everyone else in between, it is the one blog site that is worth the daily visit. Every blogger wants readers and every reader wants something worthwhile to peruse - for that, is the best bet yet.

I cannot begin to express what a wonderful community the site provides and the awesome freedom that comes from not having to be concerned about abusive comments or posts. The things done to protect the site from abuse are unequaled anywhere else. Safety is a huge concern and one I am very thankful to have on

No contest as far as I am concerned as to who is the best. wins in every category.

“What a truly GREAT site ChristianBlog.Com is! So many other sites are about the numbers and there isn't any real community being built.

Best spiritual food I ever ate.

I recommend Christian Blog. I'm new to that site, but felt comfortable from the beginning and look forward to a growing and lasting fellowship with all the members. It's just as the name states, a "Christian Blog"

I absolutely Love this site. I have been a member there for almost two years and have been totally blessed by the Christian family there, the blogs, the chatroom and the prayer section. It is a blessing in my life!

I would like to nominate

Although I had already been a member prior to my diagnosis with breast cancer, this blog site became a crucial source of support for me particularly as I went through treatment.

This is much more than just a blogging site. It is a community of brothers and sisters in Christ who provide love, encouragement and prayer for other members. It is a place for me to express my thoughts, feelings and fears as well as vent. It is a place for me to laugh as well as cry.

When things in treatment were tough, it seemed like someone always heard my cry...even in the wee hours of the morning and they were half-way around the world.

I truly believe this site was crucial in helping me deal with my illness and treatment. I am forever grateful and I thank God daily for bringing me to this site.

This is why I want to nominate them as the best religious blog site. "this site" I mean // !!!

I nominate WDTPRS blog--the best of the Catholic blogs!!

I wanted to voice my nomination for the website ( ) but it seems a whole bunch of other people already have, so please include my vote in with theirs.

Christianblog has provided me with information, understanding, and fellowship to a degree I have never before experienced. I appreciate enormously the manner in which the site is supervised and feel very secure within it. A short time after joining I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and from the moment I shared that information on the site I was blanketed in prayer. These people are my friends,I trust them, and I have no doubt that God heard their prayers for me and then answered them in a mighty way. I feel truly blessed to be a member of this wonderful blogging community.

I'd like to nominate Fr. Z over at
