In conclusion, The Beautiful and Damned was not as satisfying as Tender is the Night.
All in Art
The imperfections only serve to drive the story deeper. I wish I had read this novel twenty years ago.
Filled with fiery passion for the truth in God's word, practical application is present throughout. The book avails itself to all students of God's word.
However, although I see variegated realities, I still choose favorites.
This: the maple tree on the river.
Long live the struggle, and long live embracing it.
In short, Isaiah is about Jesus Christ, the God-man, who dwells in the midst of his people and transforms them into his bride. And the two will become one. Isaiah is about the marriage feast of the Lamb of God.
But now that the book is done, it is time to return to some important things. Danielle and I hope you enjoyed the fun.
There is great and solemn joy in the mystery. To all the spoken and word-upheld world, I say: be.

Karl Barth's The Faith of the Church: A Commentary on the Apostles' Creed According to Calvin's Catechism is a must own.
Peter Leithart's The End of Protestantism: Pursing Unity in a Fragmented Church is a flawed attempt at a worthy cause. The mission statement should be encouraged, the practical exhortations are needed, but the material presentation is lacking.
David Guretzki has provided a friendly and inviting introduction for people who have only the faintest idea of who Karl Barth even is.
It's easy to become accustomed to the miracles told in Scripture - this song helps me take a step back and be once again filled with awe.
All in all, In the Bleak Midwinter does not provide some deep Christian theology or truth. Just a quiet, sober reminder of the state of earth (in its darkness) and the state of Christ (in His infancy) at the dawn of "Christmas."
Jon Coutts has provided the church with a new platform to conceive of forgiveness and reconciliation. A Shared Mercy does not answer every question that church ministry will ask, but it provides the church a theology to repeal efforts of sins to disrupt Christ's body.
At the time I first listened to it, I'd never heard a Christmas song quite like it. And I haven't since.
