While I hope that this site will be one of them, I want to point out other websites where you can go to read good theological prose and learn from authors who are, in my opinion, talented at their craft. I have also included instructional websites for theological writing that might be a blessing to you. If you know of additional websites that serve theological writers well, please let me know. Happy reading (and writing)!

Reformation 21 — This online magazine for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals features shorter theological articles that address important issues of our time with prose that is both clear and cogent. Several Reformed figures write regularly for this site, including Scott Oliphint, Michael Reeves, Scott Swain, and John Webster.

Mortification of Spin — For all of their whit and insight, Carl Trueman, Todd Pruitt, and Aimee Byrd deserve continual attention. Their writing is always engaging and usually brings a smile to your face, which is not so common in theology. I have also spoken with Carl Trueman on a few occasions about writing and the importance of good prose, and I can attest to the fact that he practices what he preaches.

Frame-Poythress.org — John Frame and Vern Poythress have, for me, been two of the most remarkably clear theological writers I have ever read. Their prose is concise, accessible, and yet still carries much weight. This website houses their work, including free ebooks and articles. There are also shorter writings posted regularly.

How to Write a Theological Paper (John Frame) — These are helpful basic steps from John Frame on how to write a theological essay.

Westminster’s Center for Theological Writing — I list this as a resource not because I work for Westminster but because this site has been (before I came along) an excellent introduction to theological writing in various genres (Apologetics, Systematic Theology, Biblical Studies, Church History, Practical Theology, and Counseling). In addition to an introduction to each theological genre, there are specific resources available for growing as a writer, including planning and executing an extended writing project and improving your writing for clarity and coherence.

Grammar Basics (from Duke Divinity School’s Center for Theological Writing) — This handout covers the basics of grammar and punctuation for advanced writers. It never hurts to brush up on the basics, and this handout seems to capture what are the most common issues for theological writers.

Purdue Online Writing Lab — This is an excellent site that offers writing instruction on a number of levels: resources for professional writers, English as a Second Language (ESL), academic writing, grammar, punctuation, and more.
