Alan Jacobs’ “The Politics of Long Joy”

Alan Jacobs has re-cycled an excellent essay he wrote ten years ago as a column for the late lamented Books & Culture. He found what he had to say then particularly apropos to the present day. I don’t recall reading it 10 years ago, so maybe I missed that early edition of Books & Culture; […]

Revelation Study Resources

The article is clear, concise, and very helpful for a popular audience. […]

Having had some requests to be able to read them, I put them here. The four books are Social Justice Handbook: Small Steps from a Better […]

What about those links?
