Below are listed a number of blogs and websites which I read, or find valuable for whatever reason. The order of the links is alphabetical for ease of reference, and has nothing to do with their priority in my own mind. Many of the best ones are at the bottom.
- Africa Center for Apologetics Research — An apologetics organization founded by John Divito, ministering primarily to Uganda. John’s work is worth continual prayer.
- Fellowship of Reformed Baptist Churches in New Zealand — The website of the organization to which my church belongs. FRBC NZ is a growing group of churches which organizes annual events; most notably the Palmerston North School of Theology with Dr Jim Renihan.
- Thinking Matters — The apologetics organization of which I am a co-founder, this is an inter-denominational but largely Reformed group of apologists, evangelists, philosophers, and theologians who are interested in furthering the defense of the faith in New Zealand.
- Dale Campbell — Dale is the Associate Pastor for Youth at Northcote Baptist in Auckland. Although he has an Arminian slant, he does good apologetics work in the New Zealand online community.
- Darryl Burling — Darryl is a thoroughly Reformed Christian who lives in Upper Hutt. His blog, though infrequently updated, is well worth reading. His notable failing is that he works for Microsoft.
- Frank Ritchie — Another kiwi with whose theology I take some issue, Frank is well known as a presenter on LiveFM, has a strong web presence, and does good work in the social justice arena.
- George Penk — A non-Reformed Anglical blog, but a kiwi one with some good stuff on it.
- Glenn Peoples — Glenn runs Beretta Online, also known as ‘Say Hello to my Little Friend’: a blog which focuses on apologetics and politics. Glenn contributes to Thinking Matters, and his specialty is religion in the public sphere.
- Jason Kumar — Jason is the co-founder of Thinking Matters, and blogs on a range of things from science fiction to politics. He’s strongly Reformed (which suggests some cleverness), and is likely to marry my sister-in-law Lizzie (which suggests some coolness).
- Jono Mac — A newish and infrequently updated blog, but one notable in New Zealand for being strongly Calvinistic. In the past, it has proven to be a good locus for theological discussion with non-Calvinists like Frank Ritchie and Dale Campbell.
- Matt and Madeleine Flannagan — World famous (as they say) in New Zealand for political oomph and philosophical acumen. Matt and Madeleine are involved in the Thinking Matters apologetics network, and say nice things about me.
- Smokey the Magnificent — The blog of my excellent wife.
- Theology Geek — The website of Geoff Gummer, featuring a blog and forums, and syndication of several top Christian blogs in New Zealand.
- Calvin and Calvinism — A blog largely tracing the historical, intra-Reformed question of whether God desires, and has made provision for, the salvation of the reprobate.
- Contend Earnestly — The blog of Seth McBee, focusing largely on Reformed theology of a pastoral bent.
- Doxazo Theos — Philosophy and philosophical theology by Chad McIntosh. Chad writes exceptionally lucidly on many complex apologetics issues, although he is not Reformed.
- Fundamentally Reformed — Bob Hayton’s blog. Bob is a Reformed ex-fundamentalist who writes well on issues pertaining to fundamentalism in America—pastoral theology, eschatology, covenantal theology and the like.
- Grace in the Triad — Strongly Reformed, and with some focus on apologetics, this blog has a lot of good articles on philosophical and pastoral theology as well.
- Real Clear Theology — The blog of Dr Eric Svendson; Director of New Testament Research Ministries, and 4.5 point Calvinist.
- The Beginning of Wisdom — The blog of Drew Lewis, a talented young Reformed presuppositionalist who has so far written well on the problem of evil, in several exchanges with John Loftus of ‘Debunking Christianity’ infamy.
- Theology Online — Run by my friend David Ponter, and focusing largely on the historical theology of the atonement.
- Triablogue — In little need of introduction, Triablogue was founded in the mists of time by Steve Hays to be a high bastion of Christian apologetics and theology. Which it is.
