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.
Hi David. Greetings from Australia! Sounds like a great set of ideas! I’m looking forward to seeing what you have to say.
