- Aardvark Alley keeps up his faithful commemoration of the saints' days throughout the year.
- Ancient Hebrew Poetry, still on something of a hiatus, wrote on the alternate ending of the book of Joshua in the Septuagint compared to the Masoretic text, and related an argument indicating that the Septuagint may preserve the more authentic ending.
- Be Virtue is spending more time with her family, but writes on three spiritual reasons why your next is just like your ex.
- Blogotional, always one of the most prolific bloggers on my blogroll, had solid contributions this year and it may be difficult to choose just one. I decided to highlight a piece of his that furthers my own personal quest to know and love God: in Good Servants Often Guide Their Masters, he considers the role of thinking and feeling in our love of God and neighbor, and shares an insight that is not at all the usual conclusion.
- CADRE Comments, a group blog, included this resurrection-text harmonization by Joe Hinman.
- Dr. Platypus included a number of helpful posts this year; the one that I found the most edifying was for All Saints' Day.
- Forward Progress shows how Paul's comments on "tearing down the wall" apply to both racial harmony and church-marketing gimmicks. He also writes on whether there is any hope for the over-educated Christian.
- Hyperekperissou - Phil writes a vulnerable post on anxiety -- not any conventional, shallow "don't worry" fare here, but an honest look.
- Kyrie, Eleison - Anastasia writes about her father's death in "I will sing my Alleluias through tears". She also has a memorable piece in which she quotes (at length) the gay-activist-and-critic Camille Paglia.
- Leithart writes about nature, liturgy, and universal praise.
- Meta's Blog's proudest moment this year was the long-awaited publication of his book: The Trace of God: A Rational Warrant for Belief, which argues from an academic perspective and scholarly method that religious experience constitutes a prima facie warrant for religious belief. I found it a thought-provoking book.
- The Pocket Scroll writes a moving and inspiring piece about humble holiness in an homage to St Margaret.
- Sun and Shield has produced quite a few solid pieces this year, and is one of the few blogs for which I am linking multiple works for the year. I am singling out two recent posts that have helped forward my own personal quest for knowledge and wisdom, on Mapping the Origins Debate and exploring whether the question "What is essential doctrine?" can be tested by the question "Would it prevent redemption?"
- The Thinklings, once a staple of the blogosphere, has announced their closing with a farewell piece, "Done".
- Undivided Looking - Aron Wall writes on a conversation with his fellow-scientists in Gaps At the Dinner Table, and starts an ambitious and noteworthy series in Fundamental Reality I: Prologue, or Why Even Bother?
- Weedon's Blog - Pastor Weedon continues with uplifting quote-mining from patristic and modern theological sources with the beautiful read (though wordily titled) A Place of the Real Presence of Christ in a Boisterous and Unholy World.
Thin Places continued a blogging hiatus this year; still hoping for a return to blogging.
Blessings to all of you and yours in the New Year. And a special thanks to all those who blog and continue to let their light shine.
