Volume 16, Issue 3:

Playing With Knives


Thema: Playing with Knives: God the Dangerous

Douglas Jones works with a little Poe.

" Most of us look in Abraham's direction and long. Job's response is easier. I certainly couldn't play Abraham in front of a flamefaced child. We're all heads-down, counting mint and anise and cummin, while the Trinity puts on this amazing opera of history. Oh, to have the instincts of Abraham. To be quick enough to recognize the dangerousness of God in the face of evil and respond in awe: `Dammit. You're going to raise him from the dead, aren't you?' "

Similitudes: Stories with a Point
A Boar in the Road - Douglas Wilson

"Andrew jumped aside at the last minute, and heard the sound of his trousers tearing. The boar skidded into the pile of wood, not yet a fire, and turned quickly for another charge. Andrew looked down and saw that the boar had wounded him in the leg with one of its tusks. He knew that he would not be able to jump aside a second time."
