There is a list of light-emitting blocks on the Minecraft Wiki.

These blocks along with the light levels the produce are as follows:

While not technically blocks, additional light sources include:

Additionally:

Certain blocks will only allow light to pass through diffusely. These are water and ice, which reduce light by an additional 2 levels per block, and leaves, which diffuse sunlight but only reduce light by the normal 1 level per block.

There are also quite a few lighting bugs to consider.
