Mr. Standfast's Gospel Blogger Award II

It's Friday, and that means it's time for the Mr. Standfast's 2nd ever, altogether un-scientific, thoroughly subjective, Gospel-blogger Award! But before we get to this week's winner, I'd like to ask for your help. I invite you to nominate your own candidates. You can recommend a post of your own or that of another blogger. The only requirements are that it be recent (I'm no stickler here, just something within the past week or two), and that it be a representation in words of the Gospel of Christ.

Send your nominations via email or drop them in the comment box any time. I expect a trickle of nominees at first, but in time a veritable Niagara! After all, who doesn't want to win Mr. Standfast's Gospel-blogger Award.

Now to this week's winner. It was a tough choice. But the decisive point is, Was the post clearly Christ-centered? That word, "clearly," is important. Did the post point it's readers to Jesus? This week's award goes to The Irvins, for the latest in their excellent series on the names of God. The post is entitled Jehovah-raah, and yes, it points its readers unmistakably, unashamedly, to Jesus Christ. Beautiful.
