Theology Month (ha!) - Augustine

While we don't really know if this is what he looked like, I thought this neo-Renaissance mane could earn some points. Here's to Augustine, defender of orthodoxy.

Theology Week(s) (2)

Today, John Calvin turns 500. Villified and exulted by many, his Institutes of the Christian Religion was the first systematic theology of Protestant Christianity. We don't think he would have finished it at the age of 26 if he wasn't bearded.

Theology Week (1)

We're officially kicking off theology week here at Better Beards. We believe some of the best beards ever grown have been attached to theologians the world over. So, this week we'll be showcasing those beards for our undoubtedly enormous readership.

Today, Charles Spurgeon is our man. His beard was known to strike fear in the hearts of liberal Christians throughout England, and indeed throughout the world. For from the midst of that beard thundered forth words that were published throughout the world in several thousand papers and journals.

I doubt he would have been as effective were he clean-shaven.
