As a philosopher, I find all of the essays suspect, in particular the one that attacks philosophy. Nonetheless, some wer Yes, I'm reading theology. I at one time thought that an advantage of organized religion was that it kept the nutcases under control, and therefore the reading of theology could be left to those who specialize in reighing in nuts. It seems that I was wrong.

Is the gospel participation in the divine life, begun now by faith, hope and love but consummated only beyond this life? Is the good news liberation in this life from all that dehumanizes?

Secular society offers its own gods, of course: consumerism, self-worship, ambition . Dominic Cummings, our only hope.

Secular society offers its own gods, of course: consumerism, self-worship, ambition, power – anything to fill the spiritual void which we all have.
