Top 50 Blogs by Divinity Students

Published by Madison on Mon May 10, 2010

Divinity students, which range in focus from Biblical studies to philosophical ruminations, can be found in Ivy League colleges, seminaries and in church schools throughout the nation. One thing you may learn about divinity students, no matter if they are undergrads, master’s degree or PhD students — they seem to have more time to blog once they’ve graduated. That said, we’ve managed to cull 50 top blogs written by divinity students across the U.S., categorized by degree and a bonus category filled with groups of students who blog.
