The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

The Book I Wish I Was Reading....

With all of the intellectual and other obligations I have, it has been almost impossible to read anything of substance these past few months (if you count books on postmodern and racial theory as being without substance, which I do.) And to tell the truth, the next few weeks will be even more hectic, so do not expect many enlightening posts over the next few weeks as I watch this glowing screen with weary, blood-shot eyes.

As for books I wish I could be reading, this one by Henri de Lubac is the one that seems to be the coolest new book out there right now. De Lubac is my favorite Roman Catholic theological egg-head after Marie Dominique Chenu. Of course, this is the English translation of his influential work that I have long anticipated. So if you have the time, read it and tell me if it is as good as everyone says it is.

Thank you again for your readership and understanding.
