Shadows of Divine Things

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

Divine Inspiriation and Cultural Mediation

My friend David Piske has finally posted again! Alert the Media!!! His post is titled Divine inspiration and cultural mediation of the Scriptures: a speculation. This, as he declares, is his thoughts about our recent "gathering" discussions regarding the historical actuality of certain Biblical accounts (especially those early in the Old Testament).

The underlining question of his post is this: "is it theologically important (or necessary) to insist that all of the biblical accounts represent actual historical events which happened as literally stated in them?" He discusses his disagreement with Bultmann's method of demythologization, as well as what 'myth' is in relation to the sciptures.

It is interesting that he is posting this now, especially since Chris Tilling has been posting his series on inerrancy (which, by the way, Chris has placed the third part of that series on his blog). If you have a chance read David's post, it is very interesting. I have been trying to get him to post on his blog more frequently (at least more frequently than once a month or once every two months).

Thanks for the plug. It was a real interesting discussion, and the more I think on it, the more questions arise. I hope to post a few more times on this and related matters.
