Hmmm

Article by   November 2007
If intention is the key to Pullman's error, then I guess we should also discourage Christians from reading Milton's polemically anti-Trinitarian, anti-orthodox Paradise Lost. And Pascal's anti-Protestant Pensees.   And Gibbon's anti-Christian Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.  And... continue

Lewis and Analogy

Article by   November 2007
