The benefit of a blog is to be able to share your thoughts with people who do not always get to see you in person. In turn, you get the opportunity to learn from others. Since one of the main focuses of my blog is on Baptist history I wanted to share with you some of my favourite Baptist history blogs. I rank them in no particular order.
Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin, Principal and Professor of Church History and Reformed Spirituality at Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College has in my opinion one of the best Church History blogs around. In fact I think he is one of the best Church Historians in the world (and that’s not just because he’s my boss!). His particular areas of expertise are in the Ancient Church, Baptist History, and Spirituality. His blog is carefully thought out, and tremendously applicational!
Nathan Finn, Ph.D. student in Church History at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary is one of the bright up-and-comers in Church History. His insight in particular into the Southern Baptist Convention. He also has a keen interest in 18th century British Baptists which in my opinion is one of the most fascinating areas of Baptist History (and that’s not just because I’m doing my dissertation in that area!). Keep your eye on this blog.
Steve Weaver, a Th.M. student at Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College and Pastor of West Broadway Baptist Church in Lenoir City, Tennessee. His love for Baptist History is evident in his blog postings especially on Hercules Collins. His being a pastor is also most helpful as he seeks to show how studying Baptist History can actually be life changing!
Bart Barber’s blog is extremely helpful in understanding Southern Baptist History. He also has a keen interest in areas of British Particular Baptist life which is always great. Plus, I agree with Nathan that he has the best Baptist blog name anywhere! He is gracious and helpful in clarifying complex issues in Baptist History.
Check out all of these blogs. They will help you in your understanding of Baptist History immensely!
