Web pages listed as Augsburg Aggregator Awards recipients may display one of these statements:
* This page received an Augsburg Aggregator Award on [date].
* Augsburg Aggregator Award winner.


If your blog is already in the Augsburg Aggregator and you would like to nominate an outstanding confessional Lutheran blog for inclusion, please send me its URL with that of a page from your blog that lists your email address. Listed blogs must meet the criteria for the "Theologians of the cross" folder or the following criteria:

* Agreement with the Book of Concord;
* Emphasis on theology, not politics, sports, beer, procreation, ridicule, or personal lives;
* Respectful language devoid of slander and unnecessary vulgarly;
* A nomination from a contributor to a blog already listed in the Aggregator.

These standards are intended to serve the admittedly narrow purpose of the Aggregator, to provide convenient access to helpful introductions to orthodox christology. More inclusive blogrolls are available in many of the following blogs.

Author information. David Bickel confesses the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed, the Augsburg Confession, and the other documents of the Book of Concord because they faithfully summarize the sacred writings of the prophets and apostles. As a layman, he lacks the call needed to publicly teach in the church. | professional web page
