The UK's 'Top 10' Religious Blogs

As Cranmer sits here drinking Pimms and lemonade on this delightful summer's day, he has been asked to inform his communicants that Mr Iain Dale is in the process of compiling a definitive guide to UK blogging. He would like blog readers (and therefore Cranmer’s communicants) to contact him with their top blogs. This may be done either by emailing Mr Dale directly (Iain(AT)iaindale(DOT)com), mentioning ‘Top 20’ in the subject line, or by posting your top blogs here. There is no compulsion at all to send 20; His Grace most certainly did not.

There is also no compulsion at all for communicants to place Cranmer at Number One, but the Lord sees all and knows all, and loves a cheerful giver.

As if Cranmer had not had sufficient honours bestowed upon him of late, Mr Dale has asked him to suggest the definitive ‘Top 10 Religious Blogs’ for this publication (presumably, excluding His Grace).

Surprise you as it may, but Cranmer does not consider himself to be an expert in the UK ‘blogosphere’, and is inclined to believe that his communicants know rather more, not least because they have happened upon His Grace’s revered blog, and decided to dwell therein. This is therefore clear evidence of spiritual discernment and theological insight.

So while communicants are dispatching their Top 20 to Mr Dale, please let His Grace know your nominations for the Top 10 UK Religious Blogs.

Do they have to be UK blogs? I don't know where these are based, but they are religious and very informative:

Dale's Guide is 'UK Bloggers', so they do have to be 'UK' bloggers......

Cranmer is difficult to beat, but I always enjoy reading Auntie Joanna Writes:

Good Catholic blogs outnumber the Prods by far.

Mr Nadim,

For the '2007 Guide to UK Blogging', they must indeed be UK bloggers.

Mr Oiznop,

His Grace concurs, and Mrs Bogle was already in mind.

In truth, His Grace is not even sure that there are 10 'religious blogs' worthy of his endorsement. One might have thought that Ulster would offer ripe pickings.

I would nominate:

The Ugley Vicar;


Adrian Warnock would I guess not be to Your Grace's taste;

And of course there is Ruth Gledhill if she counts for this.

there are lots of reformed blogs which might not be to your graces taste.
from which there is a very lengthy link roll of other religious blogs, some of which are uk based.

Given that His Grace has been kind enough to comment at The Difference, he will know that it exists to stimulate and inform discussion of political, social and cultural issues from a ethical and faith-based perspective and provides a platform where "Christian experts in fields as diverse as economics, arts, foreign affairs and health can formulate a Biblical response to the questions that face our nation and our world."

Indeed. And The Difference commissioned an article from His Grace, approved it, His Grace wrote it, and then The Difference imposed new conditions to which His Grace could not subscribe, and they then cancelled it...

Your Grace
I am honoured you have deigned to notice my 'umble blog and I hope you will not hold back from commenting on anything you disagree with.

Your Grace,

Thank you for your comment on Prydain. You have a simply tremendous blog (I would expect nothing else from the author of the Prayer Book) and I am adding you to my blogroll.

Two UK religious blogs I have much respect for are these:

Thanks and God bless,
