I am a Ph.D. student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. I study the History of Biblical Interpretation, which includes Jewish and Christian interpretations of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. My interests are religion, politics, TV, movies, and reading.
Linville's Carnival and Babinski on C.S. Lewis and Josh McDowell
Jim Linville’s Biblical Studies Carnival is now up! And, while I was looking at Dr. Jim’s site, I noticed that ex-fundementalist Edward Babinski is on his blogroll, and I decided to visit Babinski’s blog. Babinski has an excellent post contrasting C.S. Lewis with John McDowell. Conservative Christians have long told me and others to read C.S. Lewis, hoping that Lewis will somehow convince us to adopt their brand of Christianity. The thing is…Lewis was much more liberal than many of the people who recommend him, not to mention more thoughtful and likeable.
