Four archived articles are uploaded today from the various sources I have written for over the years.
These articles are reserved for Donor Subscribers at the Premium level of support and above. The archived articles section of the blog continues to grow with these regular uploads across a range of topics. Today’s articles include Chapter Sixteen from my book The Quest for the Creed. This book consists of twenty short chapters on each phrase of the Apostles’ Creed written in a Chestertonian stand on your head style. There are only four chapters to go before the whole book will be available here at the site to download for Donor Subscribers. The other three articles are a longish article on the history of the women’s ordination debate in the Anglican and Catholic Churches, a review of Walker Percy’s Thanatos Syndrome and the first of a series I wrote for Catholic Digest on Biblical history.
Most of the content on the blog is free, but the Archived Articles section and some of the podcasts are reserved for Donor Subscribers. Donor Subscribers help to pay for the hosting, maintenance, promotion and development of the blog-website. Most websites take advertising to produce a revenue stream. I don’t because I think my readers like coming to a place where they will not be besieged by annoying pop up ads, noisy video commercials and those dumb ads that tempt you to see what your favorite character from Petticoat Junction looks like now…
So if you would like to help be becoming a Donor Subscriber go here to check out the different levels of support and what benefits you receive.
By the way…because of the support of Donor Subscribers I’ve started to produce a special YouTube video channel called Myths, Monsters and the Mysteries. The videos will always be posted here too, but if you would like to help launch this YouTube channel at no cost to yourself (except to take a few moments of your time) go here and subscribe. That helps me gain an audience at YouTube and the videos there help to drive traffic back here where I hope viewers will get a bigger dose of the Catholic faith.
Here are the new articles:
A Congenial Genocide – A review of Walker Percy’s novel The Thanatos Syndrome with a comparison to C.S.Lewis’ That Hideous Strength
The Universal Corner Shop – The One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church – Chapter Sixteen from The Quest for the Creed.
The Bible: History or Mystery? – The first in a series written for Catholic Digest on evidence for the historical accuracy of the Bible. The other articles will follow.
Catholic Women Priests – Can There Be a Discussion? – a history of the debate on women’s ordination to the priesthood first published by Catholic World Report.
In my humble opinion I always thought the issue of women priests could be summed up in the knowledge and belief that Jesus is God and as God he knew what the future of the Church would be and how He wanted it to be organized. Jesus had many good and brave women disciples yet he chose the men to be his priests. I don’t believe his decision had anything to do with the culture of the time. Jesus is God and we are not.
