I have previously included blog posts from Theolog, the blog of the Christian Century Magazine. 

The Christian Century is a non-denominational biweekly magazine that has long been recognized as the preeminent independent publication of mainline Protestantism.  Its prestigious status is reflected in the list of esteemed contributors to the magazine’s pages.  Recognizable names from the past include Jane Addams, Reinhold Niebuhr, Martin Luther King Jr., Richard John Neuhaus, and Albert Schweitzer.  More recently, the list includes Martin Marty, Carol Zaleski, Walter Brueggemann, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Will Willimon.

I am pleased that this blog, The Spirit of a Liberal, has been accepted into the Christian Century blog network … “thinking critically, living faithfully”.  Here is the announcement from Steve Thorngate, the editor of Theolog.
