My favorite reading this week (although it’s from January 10th) goes to “A Thoreau Look at the Undead”
Look for a series called “LOST in Theology” soon, based on the popular TV series, relating to my work on Bultmann and Existential Hermeneutics.
I’m teaching the Formation of the Canon this weekend, so I’ll leave you with this quote from Athanasius in 367CE:
They have fabricated books which they call books of tables, in which they shew stars, to which they give the names of Saints. And therein of a truth they have inflicted on themselves a double reproach: those who have written such books, because they have perfected themselves in a lying and contemptible science; and as to the ignorant and simple, they have led them astray by evil thoughts concerning the right faith established in all truth and upright in the presence of God.
To you and Athanasius, I ask “Who says so?”
