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.

New Periodicals

Recently I have subscribed to two periodicals. Both were recommended by a friend of mine and both have been wonderful. The first is a theological journal called Pro Ecclesia. This journal is an excellent ecumenical journal of Catholic and Evangelical theology. I was surprised to find out that Dr. Jeffrey Bingham of the Dallas Theological Seminary (a very conservative seminary and not known for ecumenism) is on the Advisory council for this journal.

Pro Ecclesia, as the website describes, "seeks to give contemporary expression to the one apostolic faith and its classic traditions, working for and manifesting the church’s unity by research, theological construction, and free exchange of opinion." So far the articles have been written by top notch scholars such as Wofhart Pannenberg, Geoffrey Wainwright, Robert Jenson, David S. Yeago, D. G. Hart, Peter J. Leithart, and many others. If you were unaware of this journal, but enjoy theological discussion/articles, then I highly recommend it.

The other periodical to which I recently subscribed is Touchstone. I must confess that this magazine has been one of the best I have ever read. The last few issues have been amazing, covering topics like Karl Barth, Pluralism, Catholic Justices on the Supreme Court, Creeds, and much more. Like Pro Ecclesia, Touchstone has articles written by well known scholars and the articles are quite thought provoking. I highly recommend both these periodicals!

Does anyone have any others they would like to recommend? If so, feel free to post them in the comments.
