We Are Inspiring!!!!

We won! We won! That's right--Historiann has bestowed us with a 2009 Inspiration Award! It is good to know that this blog is inspiring someone!

As part of the award, I need to call your attention to 5-7 other blogs that have provided some inspiring reading of late. Here goes:

Religion and American History: I am proud to be RAH's first "contributing editor." I thus owe whatever blogging career I have to Paul Harvey, the blogmeister or all blogmeisters! If you are interested in the intersection of religion and American history you must read this award-winning blog. Harvey has assembled a formidable group of scholars in American religious history.

Historiann: Let me return the favor. Historiann pulls no punches when it comes to gender politics, the profession, and early American history. She has a very active group of correspondents and regular posters who keep the conversation moving. My daughters like her posts on dolls.

American Creation: Was America founded as a Christian nation? American Creation has become a one-stop shop for the study of religion and the revolutionary era.

Bald Blogging: Phil, a University of Houston graduate student and high school history teacher offers insights at the intersection of religion, history, and African-American studies. Check out his series of posts on "Christmas with DuBois." I only wish he would blog more!

Boston 1775: J.L. Bell offers a morning devotional in revolutionary-era Boston history.

Jesus Creed: Theologian Scot McKnight on all things evangelical.
