The main aim of this blog is to interpret the Christian Order in the light of current affairs, philosophy, literature and the arts -- and vice versa. So it's about ideas. Social, political and religious comment. Links, notes on people, places, events, books, movies etc.
And mainly a place where I can post half-baked ideas in the hope that other people, or the passing of time, will help me to bake them.
If you are a Christian and were feeling smug in reading kitsch like The da Vinci code, it may come as a bit of a shock to learn that Christian kitsch has outsold Dan Brown's no-brainer "makes you think" book.
