Welcome to everyone who finds their way here. The seed for this blog was sown as I was writing and revising True Paradox: How Christianity Makes Sense of Our Complex World, which will be published in October 2014. My editor’s favorite way of hinting that a passage didn’t quite fit was to suggest I might want to “turn it into a blog post.” The would-be blog posts needed a home, and I’d already been thinking about starting a blog. So here we are.
True Paradox, the book, explores a variety of puzzles and paradoxes that are common to human experience, including consciousness, our experience of beauty and suffering, our inability to create a just social order, and our perception of an afterlife. Christianity has surprisingly plausible explanations for each of these puzzles.
True Paradox, the blog, will ponder these issues and many others.
I am not especially prolific when it comes to blog posts, so I do not expect to post more than two or three times most weeks. From time to time I plan to invite guest bloggers to join me and add an additional perspective. But mostly it will just be me reacting to whatever seems noteworthy or interesting.
