Two months ago we launched a search for the best Christian blogs that engage in social and political issues of interest to the world outside the Church. In all, we received sixteen nominations, although one of these was the Jubilee Centre's own blog, which we obviously cannot allow to proceed to the next round(!)
So, we list below in alphabetical order links to the remaining fifteen and invite you to vote in the table beneath on which you think are the best - and perhaps to discover some new sources offering you a biblical perspective on social and political concerns.
As you explore the various options that may be new to you, may you find plenty of fresh thinking to connect your faith and the world. Results will be announced later in the year. Until then, thank you helping us to identify the best in applied biblical thinking in the blogosphere - and be sure to spread the word via your own blog and social networks!
If you have other blogs you wish you had nominated, add them in the comments below and we'll see about adding them to the poll - though late additions will obviously be at a disadvantage when it comes to counting the votes.
