Starting another blog: “The world against me rages, its fury I disdain”

04 Oct
With some help from Paul Gerhardt, I have started a new blog.  On weekday mornings, I am trying to discipline myself to spend 1/2 hour reading parts of a book of some intellectual influence that deals with questions of knowledge (i.e. epistemology): how we know what we know, and what this means for our lives day by day.  Take a look at it if it is something you are interested in (you may not be!). 
Within that short 1/2 hour of daily reading, I am taking notes on, summarizing and interacting with the book as I go, addressing things from a Christian perspective.  In 1 Timothy 6, Paul writes: “Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge”.  If there are things I encounter that I must “turn away” from, I hope to do that intelligently, and with “gentleness and respect” (I Peter 3:15).  There will also be some good quotes about true knowledge, worldliness, the futility of the world’s ways, etc. 
Based on what I’ve done so far, it looks like I’ll be making 2-3 posts/week…
If you are interested, stop in once in a while and join the conversation.  Otherwise, it will be me and the books.  : )
