One of the elements of blogging that I’ve really enjoyed over the past six months, has been to find what other blogs are out there and to learn from them.

Kent Shaffer from the Church Relevance website recently published the top 100 Christian blogs plus another 41 for good measure.

As a pastor and blogger, there are a few that I read regularly and I thought that I would share my favourites so that others can see some of the excellent sites that there are.

Some are written by people I know and some I’ve stumbled across in the past few weeks, but each of them has given me something to think about and helped me in my walk.  Not all of them are in the top 100, but they deserve to be.

Here are my favourite Christian blogs:

Michael Hyatt.  Michael’s blog came in at number three on the list and is one that I read regularly.  He is the CEO of Christian publisher Thomas Nelson and specialises in leadership and social media.  He is also worth following on Twitter as he role-models how a leader should be using such a tool.

Stuff Christians Like.  This site came in at number six and is always an entertaining read.  You won’t learn much here, but if you’re a christian with a sense of humour this site is worth book-marking for those days when you need a bit of a chuckle.

Maurilio Amorim.  Coming in at 136 on the list, I only stumbled across Maurilio’s site recently and really enjoy his insights.  He is one of those bloggers who often writes what I wish I’d written.  Whilst I’m jealous of his talents, I love his work.

Mark Conner.  I had the great privilege of working for Mark and his blog is one of the first that I ever read regularly.  As Senior Pastor of CityLife Church, Mark has some great insights about leadership, theology and life in general.

Mark Sayers.  Mark is an old friend and he gave me some great advice when I first started up this blog.  He is an expert on culture and faith and has written a couple of excellent books on the subject, including his latest, Facing Leviathan.

Dr. Gary Collins. Gary is a Christian Life Coach, who actually wrote the book on the subject of christian life coaching.  A few months ago, he moved his weekly newsletter into a blog format.  It’s a great read and well worth a look.

These are my favourite christian blogs.  They’re not the only ones that I read and I certainly don’t limit myself to christian blogs, but I felt compelled to share them with you guys.

Do you have any favourites that you would like to share?
