Holy Week is always a busy religion week. And it's a particularly busy week over here with us both closing our May issue and taking Good Friday off. So while we've had a chance to grab the week's religion news, we couldn't put everything into our usual neat categories by the time the bell rang. But since you're enough of a news junkie to be reading this over your weekend, we hope you won't mind this inconvenience. (Take a page from Alan Jacobs and enjoy the serendipity that a less-categorized list like this can encourage.)

We'll clean this list up early next week. And then offer another heaping helping of hot linky goodness.

Index | Easter | Lent & Holy Week | Theology & the Resurrection | New gospels | Church life | AIDS | Zimbabwe | Abuse | Crime | Lawsuits | Grace Church | Anglicanism | Mormonism | Catholicism | John Paul II | People | Politics and politicians | Education | Homosexuality & same-sex marriage | Life ethics | Stem cells | Morality & psychology | Entertainment | Chocolate Jesus | Best of luck

Launched in 1999, Christianity Today’s Weblog was not just one of the first religion-oriented weblogs, but one of the first published by a media organization. (Hence its rather bland title.) Mostly compiled by then-online editor Ted Olsen, Weblog rounded up religion news and opinion pieces from publications around the world. As Christianity Today’s website grew, it launched other blogs. Olsen took on management responsibilities, and the Weblog feature as such was mothballed. But CT’s efforts to round up important news and opinion from around the web continues, especially on our Gleanings feature.
Ted Olsen
Ted Olsen is Christianity Today's editorial director. He wrote the magazine's Weblog—a collection of news and opinion articles from mainstream news sources around the world—from 1999 to 2006. In 2004, the magazine launched Weblog in Print, which looks for unexpected connections and trends in articles appearing in the mainstream press. The column was later renamed "Tidings" and ran until 2007.
