A List of Resources


While I list the following sites as “recommended resources,” they must be understood as just that — resources. These, as well as any sites found on the sidebar, are simply sites that I have found interesting or helpful in my reading, studying and researching. To recommend something as a resource in no way translates to my endorsing every point of doctrine to which those people adhere. If that were my standard, this would be a very short list. As it is, however, I do not fully agree with or endorse everything said on any one site mentioned anywhere on this blog; and in fact, I may disagree with a large portion of the material on several.

I just wanted to be clear about my reasons for listing sites from such a wide range of theological persuasions — several sites which may very well contain material that would raise suspicion as to my motivation in recommending them — the following is a list of resources I enjoy, and think may be useful to you as well. Thanks for understanding.
