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.

More Additions to my Library

Well I finally received N.T. Wright's latest book titled Evil and the Justice of God. Along with this book, I purchased Christ, Baptism and the Lord's Supper, Liturgical Theology, and The Nature of the Atonement. I have provided links and pictures (below) of each of these titles if you are interested in any of the books for yourself.

Lately, my interests have really shifted to worhip, the meaning of worship, the history of worship, etc. So in the future as I research, I'll probably be posting here and there on the topic of worship. If you have any suggestions for books about worship, please let me know. Below are pics of the latest editions to my library:

Hey there Todd. Thought I'd drop in and take a look at what's happening at Shadows.... It's good to see you so interested in liturgy lately. As a companion book to the Liturgical Theology book you just got, you might want to consider Theologia Prima: What is Liturgical Theology by David W. Fagerberg. A buddy of mine in a graduate school of theology had it for one of his classes, and he was very impressed with it. Also, I've enjoyed the following three books:
1) Feast of Faith by Joseph Ratzinger
2) The Spirit of the Liturgy by Ratzinger
3) Christ the Sacrament of the Encounter with God by Edward Schilebeeckx (? I'm spelling from memory)
And then of course a whole 'nother can of worms could open up with the studying of Eucharistic theology particularly.
Those are my suggestions. Take them with however many grains of salt you like, as R. Howe used to say.

Cool. Thanks for the recommendations. I always love to get new works for my current library. These sound like very good suggestions. Will do.
