Cave of Adullam

Martin Shakespeare, Puritan / Douglas Wilson

Like Shakespeare, Martin Marprelate had a teeming brain. His writing overflows with metaphors, many of which bear the mark of a truly unique way of looking at the world.

Making Room / Peter J. Leithart

It’s always essential to remember that any analogy between the life of God and the life of man is interrupted by an apophatic dis-analogy. Besides, “creeping pericho­resis” is kind of cute.

Ingested Words / Peter J. Leithart

In Berlinski, the new atheists have a formidable opponent, a mathematician and philosopher who combines wide knowledge of science and Western culture with sharp analysis and entertains with a cutting wit.

Ecclesiastical Poetry / Ben Merkle

An accomplished poet can find his way from one particular image to almost any number of meanings. John Donne can work his way from the blood-sucking flea to a longing for sexual consummation.

Other People / Toby Sumpter

The temptation is to see the multitudes and try to figure out ways to send them home.
