Theology Forum

Steve Duby is a contributor to this blog and recently published his second book, God in Himself: Scripture, Metaphysics, and the Task of Christian Theology (IVPAcademic, 2019). I was asked several months ago to endorse the book, and without a moment’s hesitation I agreed. But, alas, the manuscript languished in my inbox until the semester wrapped […]

From September of 2018 until May 2019, I have been working extensively on a project which was not only extremely difficult to research, but was a subject scarcely touched upon. To a large extent, most of the discourse surrounding the ritual of Exorcism and the phenomenon of Demonic Possession is seen through movie screens and […]

Epicurean Database

From time to time, I evaluate philosophical concepts from various cultures or intellectuals, and write about them from an Epicurean perspective in order to explore what a cosmopolitan Epicureanism would look like. I’ve written about African philosophical concepts before–see, for instance, this essay on the virtue of coolness. Today I’m exploring the idea of humanity and […]

“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.” – William James. The early harvest is beginning to be gathered in from the fields around my village, with harvesters and tractors busily at work, and fields that were oceans of waving grain are now becoming stubble dotted with hay bales. The […]

MCViewPoint Church attendance in the United States is at an all-time low, according to a Gallup poll released in April 2019. This decline has not been a steady one. Indeed, over the last 20 years, church attendance has fallen by 20 percent. This might not sound like cause for concern off the bat. And if […]

Return To Tradition

Where Genres Collide Traci Kenworth YA Author & Book Blogger

Seven Links…7/20/19 Traci Kenworth Writing: 1. “The other day I did an incomprehensible, dreadful, noxious, scandalous thing—something so shocking to the conscience that it threatens the gossamer social fabric that tenuously binds us together as a people and a nation. I left the house without my phone. I know, I know! But hear me, […]

The Cornish Bird

We already know that Cornwall is pretty special. The sublime scenery, the temperate climate, the precious wildlife . . . the pasties.

dru's book musings

The last time I was a student was over a quarter-century ago. More like thirty-odd years ago. I’m a bit nervous about going back to school, but I take comfort in reminding myself that it’s not like I’m really going to school. I simply want to audit the class, not take it for a grade. […]
