Still Here

I’m still here – I didn’t crash and burn on last weekend’s trip to Tennessee. It went rather well, all things considered. I’ve just been extremely busy… and still rather distracted.

I’m reading Karen Armstrong’s A History of God, subtitled “The 4,000-year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” I’m about 2/3 through it – I’ll have much more to say about it when I’m finished. For now, I’ll just say that I’m very disappointed (though hardly surprised) that I spent all those years in Baptist and Methodist churches and I heard virtually none of the steps through which modern Christian thought evolved.

I highly recommend the book, and not just to those interested in the Western Monotheistic faiths.
