Links and resources to read or discuss later-soon…

So, you might think I’ma jackasass for presenting a post like this: unhyperlinked URLs to things I haven’t even read yet! But in fact, I’m partially keeping records for myself and partially inviting you to read them before, or, even better, without my reactions.

Perhaps it was left over suffering from Lent, but a week or two ago I had a blog combox interaction about apophatic theology, which, while I believe it’s good and valid, is usually also a major headache to talk about.
