Best of 2014

Quo Vadimus? What are we all hear to learn, anyway?

Keeping an Open Mind. Faith and criticism, a recurring theme.

Stealing God’s Thunder. If sexual behavior within marriage is acceptable–even pleasing–to YHWH, why couldn’t marital sex (between a priest and his wife, for example) be part of Yahwistic worship?

Bloodlands. A somber book review.
