Doubt Everything Modern

A happy new year to all those who take the trouble to read this blog. Blogging has been light over the holidays but is due to pick up. Here are some of the things about which I'm thinking.

I look forward to blogging in the new year on John Paul II's "Theology of the Body," the morality of socialism and capitalism, and various issues that arise as we go along. I have neglected to write about the Manhattan Declaration so far and I intend to rectify that. I also plan to address The Shack, the emergent church book by Peter Rollins, How (Not) to Speak of God, and various books on C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien that I have been collecting, such as The Narnian by Alan Jacobs and Chesterton and Tolkien as Theologians by Alison Milbank. I also plan to indulge my fascination with American politics and chronicle the fascinating rise in social, fiscal and traditional conservatism in response to the Obama administration and the implications thereof for the culture wars.

I hope to hear from many of you over this year as we cast a cynical eye over the landscape of contemporary society. A motto for the year: "Doubt everything modern."

Ahhh, Theology of the Body. Very influential in my own life (it's one of the reasons I got married) and I'm also going to be returning to it. I'm really looking forward to reading along with you. Keep up the interesting work.
