Study Room Guidelines

Ok it isn't so quiet in here but our resident librarian will ensure that there is good discussion on literature, prose, poetry, etc. You may also post sermons, notes, and the like as long as it is not copyrighted material and within reason of the post length regulation.

We encourage you to take a lose look at the threads and offer honest and useful input. This forum is a place where we discuss literature of any media, as well as personal creations by some of our own wordsmiths. Debate is encouraged, but we often find ourselves relaxing here.

  • The Nero-Antichrist: Founding and Fashioning a Paradigm
    (Classics after Antiquity)
    by Shushma Malik

    Here's a review:

    The author shows that the Nero-antichrist paradigm is better understood as the product of late antiquity rather than the first century. The so-called Neronian references in the bible do not easily fit the emperor. Late antiquity and the nineteenth-century were the periods in which the Nero-Antichrist paradigm was most influential. The nature of the paradigm was set in late antiquity and did not change in the intervening period. Malik covers Nero from ancient history to modern books and film.

    • Just finished Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman.
      "Concentrate on what you have to do. Fix your eyes on it. Remind yourself that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demands of people. Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it. But with kindness. With humility. Without hypocrisy."
      -Marcus Aurelius

        • The Loom of Language by Frederick Bodmer

          This is supposed to help the independent study of language.

          So far it has been interesting to see how the various languages and alphabets are connected within many societies and ages.

          He provides some shortcuts but also seems to point to different paths of study depending whether you want to just read, just speak or also write.

          Another point he makes is that it can be efficient to learn multiple related languages at the same time.

                • Wesley Hill, Paul and the Trinity
                  This book argues for the relational aspect of the Godhead as a way of understanding Paul's writings better. The recent trend has been to examine Paul's writings in terms of high and low christology.

                  • Rewriting Maya Religion: Domingo de Vico, K’iche’ Maya Intellectuals, and the Theologia Indorum

                    By Garry Sparks

                    Intriguing book that about the first interactions between Maya Religion believers and Hispanic Catholicism. There was a lot of violent crossing of steel and obsidian, but it also turns out there was a good degree of dialectical dialogue between both creeds in the beginning, and a great insight of what Maya Religion and Spanish Christianity was, and to a certain degree, still is.
                    Ladino, Guatemalan, Hispanic, and Latin, but foremostly, Christian.

                            Given that Craig is a Molinist I am glad he defends the Penal view of substitution as opposed to the other theories.
