Back In Chicago
My apologies for having fallen off the map for the last few weeks. I am back in Chicago in time for the new year, and I will resume regular blogging in the near future. Over the break I had the opportunity to read some very interesting books, including Sidney Griffith’s The Church in the Shadow of the Mosque, which is a very good, brief survey of Christian intellectual culture under Islamic rule up through the 13th century, and I may have some remarks on them in the coming days. No doubt there will be plenty to add about the ongoing fighting in Gaza, Blagojevich’s madness and other matters.
My best, belated Christmas wishes to all our Western friends and Orthodox brethren on the New Calendar, and a happy new year to you all.
