Brendan Busse was in a cold sweat as he walked into the store … to buy his first clerical shirt. What he learned was that the clothes we wear are an offering: “This is who I’m giving you today, they say.”
And so here we are again with another Week in Review, an offering — what we’ve given you this week:
- Ryan Duns is back with the fourth installment of “How to Be an Atheist” in which he discusses the third of St. Thomas Aquinas’s Five Ways to prove the existence of God. (If you’re having trouble keeping count, Ryan explains it all in his essay. Or if you want to start at the beginning, here are part 1, part 2, and part 3 of the series.)
- Does your eclectic playlist help confirm your egalitarian tastes? Matt Dunch would like a word with you.
- There’s hope even for bloggers! Vinny Marchionni looks at the recent story of former atheist blogger Leah Libresco’s conversion to Catholicism.
- Matt Spotts tackles a question he’s heard frequently: What does it even mean to have an experience of God?
- “Those damn [insert label here]!” (We hope you won’t insert “Jesuits,” but it wouldn’t be the first time.) Tim O’Brien takes a look at why we’re so eager to divide ourselves, even when we’re asking important questions, as in Ross Douthat’s NY Times piece, “Can Liberal Christianity Be Saved?”
Those darn guys at TJP! Every week, another week in review!
