Linkin’ Log: Some Good Theology, Some Funny Philosophy, more…
So it’s been a few weeks since we did anything here at the blog. The second half of July and the month of August promise to provide some breathing room, so let’s see if we can get caught up and – do we dare dream? – maybe even a little ahead in our posting.
One of our Saturday Linkin’ Logs seems like a good place to start, so here you go: some of the best things I’ve found on the web since last we met.
Let’s start with Carl Trueman, which is a very good place to start. His recent article The Myth of the Modern Self is a must read, as it explores the reasons for the seemingly disproportionate rage over the Dobbs decision. And if you have not read his book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, what are you waiting for? Do it now!
This brings us to our second must-read article, an analysis of the negative effects that the Sexual Revolution has had on women and girls. For a deeper dive – especially as it relates to the trans movement – Read Irreversible Damage by Abigail Shrier.
For something a little lighter, how about this Twitter thread featuring some of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. To my great shame, I have been in exactly zero of these.
As a philosophy student, I was very interested in this defense of the humanities from a conservative perspective.
Speaking of the humanities, a little philosophy humor for you:
Here’s an interesting story related to a familiar hymn.
There’s been an interesting development in archaeology related to the early Church.
And speaking of archaeology, some interesting information on an ancient Assyrian account of the Tower of Babel.
This article from Midwestern Seminary provides some compelling reasons why everybody should study theology.
We missed July 4th here at the blog, but here’s a video that brought a lump to this ex-pat’s throat:
Let’s close things out this week with this lovely theme and variations on It is Well With My Soul:
