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.

The Last Word

"We have for too long been in thralled to philosophers like Feuerbach, who wanted to reduce all talk of God to talk of humans and their experiences."

- N. T. Wright, The Last Word: Beyond the Bible Wars to a New Understanding of the Authority of Scripture; p. 39.

I wrote a review of THE LAST WORD this week, and used that very quote.

Blessings,
