Faith Bloggers to Watch in 2010

Problogger had a great idea about creating a “watch list” for 2010. Seeing that I’m a faith blogger (amongst other things), I thought I’d compile a list of the faith bloggers to watch (and read) in the year ahead.

No real criteria was used in picking this list outside of a “hunch.” I expect that the people on this list will have a big year in the Christian blogosphere in 2010. That’s about it.

So here they are, in no particular order:

1. Daniel Berman

Honestly? I like most everything Daniel tweets. He’s informative, funny, and timely. His blog posts are short and to the point. Plus, he dabbles in a field that you can never know too much about: Communication. On the web: DanielCBerman.com

2. Jon Acuff

You may not know his name, but you know his website. Three words: Stuff. Christians. Like. Jon is the mastermind behind the site and all the effort shows: He’s one of the most prolific and popular bloggers out there. Jon’s got a book coming out soon and once it does … Well … Let’s just say Jon will be able to quit his day job. He’s smart, funny, faithful and pokes fun at the dumb things Christians do with a grace that is hard to replicate. On the web: StuffChristiansLike.net

3. Margaret Feinberg

I don’t know much about Margaret, but I do know this: She’s in tight with Walter Bruggemann. Anybody with the clout to hang with Walter (both physically and intellectually) is okay in my book. Her writing is sharp and to-the-point. Her website is simply gorgeous. Shen gently challenges what is with what could be. Margaret is smart–I like that. Watch for great things from this one in 2010. On the web: MargaretFeinberg.com

4. John Saddington

Again, the name may not be immediately recognizable, but you’d know his work. John Saddigton, a.k.a. Human3rror, is a blogging legend. He’s a phenom, basically. John’s got some great blogs, but I think 2010 is his year because of his skill in WordPress coding. My prediction? John will release some themes this year that will change the way WordPress is used. He’s that good. On the web: Human3rror.com and ChurchCrunch.com

5. Tyler Braun

Tyler’s young and he’s got passion–two key ingredients that will make him fun to watch in 2010. I’ve had the chance to guest post on his blog a few times, so I’ve enjoyed watching how he writes and interacts with his readers. He’s got a sharp mind and his posts are short–a good combo. Tyler’s a blogger to watch because he’s got a theological education and he knows how to use it. He’s proving that seminary ≠ cemetery. On the web: ManOfDepravity.com

6. David Housholder

I like Dave because he’s incredibly brilliant but writes with such clarity that you don’t feel like he’s talking down to you. He’s a pastor who can communicate complex truths of Scripture in a sentence. That’s hard to do. He’s one to watch in 2010 because of the insight he brings to the table regarding the impending demise of denominationalism. Dave’s been there, done that, got the t-shirt to prove it. On the web: Dave Housholder Live From Robinwood Church

7. BeDeviant Contributors

That’s right. This unruly band of bloggers are going to become ones to watch for what they bring to the table here at BeDeviant.com. We had over 30 people respond to our initial push for contributors–awesome! Some posts have been pushed out from these Deviants–but look for more to come! These are people who desire to “think differently” and honor God in all that they do. On the web: BeDeviant.com Contributors

That’s who I’m watching. These are the people who I think we’ll see big things from in 2010. They’re sharp, smart, committed, faithful and passionate.

But that’s my list. Who are you watching and why? Who do you expect big things from in 2010?

    Could not agree more with Tyler Braun.
    Love his stuff

    Feinberg is the real deal. I led a small group through a book study of hers, and she found out, sent me a personal email, and then engaged the group with a word of encouragement. Awesome! And she is totally in love with Scripture, which is fun to see jump off the pages of her books.
    In an email with John the other day, he told me to hold off on a blog redesign for a new theme he is getting ready to launch. Of course, I listened. Because as you said, he is THAT good.
    Good list here, thanks!

    You guys are too kind. Thanks. We all should hang out sometime. Meeting half-way for all of us would be somewhere in Wyoming I think :)

    I don't know most of them. I only know John…well, this year would be the great time to know them then.

    Thanks for the list!

    You deserve it, bro! Keep on blogging!

  6. Daniel Berman January 12, 2010 at 7:48 pm #

    Thank you Justin. I would have never expected to be added to a list like this, at this stage of my life. I pray that I will continue bringing value to as many believers as possible around the world.

    word. what about you?

  8. Justin Wise January 13, 2010 at 4:06 pm #

    You bet, bro! You have a great blog. Keep it up.

    I already watch myself enough. Less me, more others!

    good to see Tyler and Jon on this list!

    I'd add Tyler Stanton's blog to the list. Not a lot of faith content on his blog, but he's hilarious. (he co-emcees Catalyst West Conference with Tripp Crosby)

    Ha! I too once thought that when you published a book you got to sleep on hundred dollar bills and get invited to secret churches that only pretty people are allowed to attend. I was wrong, so wrong. I predict 2010 will see me at my current IT job, doing IT kind of things. TPS reports mostly. Thanks for including me on this list.

  12. Justin Wise January 27, 2010 at 8:46 am #

    But I bet you'll be the only person at Auto Trader whose published!

    And, I'd also like to add you're probably one of the few IT people who have built kindergartens in Vietnam via blogging.

    Word?
