I wish to make a simple point, seemingly obvious but perhaps only because I’ve spent the past 20 years of my life teaching myself how to read and write books of substance, books which are worth reading by objective standards. When a friend recently read two of my theological books (one unpublished) and three of … [Read more…]
This is a rather broad field but I should qualify my discussion at the very beginning. I’ll talk mostly about an error which has never been purged from Christian and Jewish thought: the tendency to tie God to the universe as we know it so that the Lord Almighty becomes a super-creature.

Not even the emptiest space of our universe could not continue to … [Read more…]
On the whole, it has been a smooth road to setting up a website, partly because I chose to use WordPress as a simple content management system as well as blogger software.
