>> THEOLOGY Libraries <<

Theology generally focuses on the revelation of God to man through the Bible.  But natural theology is an aspect of philosophy as well as theology, dealing with those aspects of God which we can know without God telling us, i.e., which we can reason to from observation of the world and of our own lives.  We are dealing with those aspects in the Philosophy Libraries. -- which see for further discussion on the task before us.   

It is not always easy to keep the distinction between theology and philosophy clear, and not terribly necessary, so we will be going back and forth at times.   The "freewill" library below could be in the philosophy library, for instance, but, in my view, freewill and theology are too tied together to put in the philosophy section.  A universe without God cannot explain the existence of freewill (and thus cannot explain much at all...  But that is an epistemological question -- hmm, back to philosophy.). 

These libraries will be growing over the next few years.

** Ascension Theology - by Douglas Farrow (Prof. of Christian Thought at McGill U., in Montreal, Canada).  A brilliant and needed essay on the critical importance of the Ascension of Jesus Christ to the heavenly places after His resurrection, death, and the harrowing of hell.   It is not just a metaphor for a way to get off-stage a savior who has done his job and can now go home.  It is a crucial (and somewhat frightening) part of the continuing story of redemption and salvation.  Farrow brings up some scary issues which need clear spiritual direction.    Book Review by E.
