Things I've noticed

At Sci-Fi Theology, Alex Thompson has some humorous insight into the difference between theologians and philosophers. Ben Fernström from Finland has written a nice fictional account of the progress of the famous book meme. Also in Finland, Patrik has now completed his impressive dogmatics for a shrinking universe. And from his inconceivably great island, Gaunilo discusses David Bentley Hart’s view of infinity.

Meanwhile, there’s some great discussion of the church and postmodernism at a new blog by James K. A. Smith and others, and there are two interesting new blogs, Disruptive Grace and Der evangelische Theologe, by Princeton Seminary students. In First Things, R. R. Reno voices his opinion about the best places for theological study in the United States. And Jim West notes that you can now download entire out-of-copyright books for free via Google Books.

On another note, you’ll see that there’s now a link to recommended reading in my sidebar – I’ll change this selection of books fairly regularly. And if you’re an Apple user, you’ll notice that my friend Amy has given this blog a nice new font, Hoefler Text. (Unfortunately this font is only free for Apples, so most Windows computers will continue to see the old font.)

Wow. Once again Reno demonstrates he has no clue what he's talking about.

I've just read the First Things article and have to make another comment - I can't believe he didn't mention Union Theological Seminary, NYC. Certainly times have changed in recent years but it continues to be an amazing community of learning, committment and action in the church and world.
