The Contents of our TABLE
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.
Polytheism and Polysexuality
Your Kid’s Facebook
Christendom, Structured Loyalties, & the Local Congregation
Drop the Luggage
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.
