Torrey Gazette is the combined work of everyday Christians blogging on books, family, art, and theology. So pull up a seat and join us. Family Table rules apply. Shouting is totally acceptable.

Weekly Roundup (4/21 - 4/25)

In case you missed any of this week's posts you can find a link to each of them below!

Monday: The Silmarillion, The History of Israel, & Easter

Having just finished J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Silmarillion, I note the similarities between Tolkien's historical work and the history of Israel found in the Old Testament.

Tuesday: Work From a Christian Perspective

In Christian circles it is often said that Christian's should treat their jobs like a mission field. I question this assumption and ask whether there is something more foundational to a Christian understanding of work.

Wednesday: Diversity for Unity's Sake?

I look at the different ways the term "diversity" is used and claim that seeking diversity for its own sake is an unhelpful ideal for society.

Thursday: Why You Must HAVE Enemies to Love Them

Jesus tells his disciples to love their enemies. In our day this has been misconstrued to mean that we should have no enemies. Jesus taught and lived quite differently than our modern sensibilities.
