When William Faulkner Set the World Record for Writing the Longest Sentence in Literature: Read the 1,288-Word Sentence from Absalom, Absalom!

Image by Carl Van Vechten, via Wikimedia Commons “How did Faulkner pull it off?” is a question many a fledgling writer has asked themselves while struggling through a period of apprenticeship like that novelist John Barth describes in his 1999 talk "My Faulkner." Barth “reorchestrated” his literary heroes, he says, “in search of my writerly self... downloading my innumerable predecessors as only an insatiable green apprentice can.” Surely a great many writers can relate when Barth says, “it was...

Tuesday with Michael Spencer: Can You Study This Book Too Much?

Tuesday with Michael Spencer From 2008 and edited by CM I’m not a literature scholar, but I play one in the classroom several hours a week. That is, when I’m not teaching the Bible to kids from all over America and the world, I teach AP English. Mostly Shakespeare and poetry. The interaction of the two brings some stimulating questions to my mind from time to time. For example, can you study a text too much? Let’s say that you came to my house and I had 1500 volumes of books, almost all on Ha...

A Theology that Kills Germs

“Kills Germs” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward SHOP MY CARTOONS & ART I thought this was cute. So I drew it. Actually, I appreciate much of Calvin’s theology. Even though I spent a lot of time in charismatic circles, I was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. I even won the Reformed Theology prize in seminary. Barth, the great Reformed theologian, is still my favorite. But, I wonder: If Calvin could have known the effects of his total depravity theology, would he have done it differentl...

Part of Ford’s 1966 Le Mans podium sweep, this GT40 Mk II could set an auction record

1966 Ford GT40 Mk II, chassis P/1016. Photos copyright and courtesy of RM Sotheby’s, unless otherwise noted. In a soft rain, just past 4:00 p.m. on June 19, 1966, a trio of Ford GT40 Mk IIs rounded the White House corner on the Circuit de la Sarthe, running in a carefully orchestrated pack. In the most controversial finish the 24 Hours of Le Mans has ever seen, Ford didn’t just beat rival Ferrari, it humiliated the legendary brand in its own backyard, taking first-, second-, and third-place.

Kids Shouldn’t Talk Like This to Their Fathers

“Kids Talk to their Fathers” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward If you convert the words of praise to God into human relational language, most of it doesn’t make sense. Barth argued that worship is a product of the Fall and indicates separation. Before the Fall we walked together with God in the garden in intimate fellowship. But the Fall thereafter required language that emerges out of a catastrophic detachment. Is that how we want to live today? CAN I HELP YOU? CLICK HERE!

Providence Is No Excuse: Exposing a Reformed White Supremacist

It is essential to your own future that you shall learn the history of the past truly. –Robert Lewis Dabney History teaches us that proper thought does not necessarily lead to proper action — even when those thoughts align with God’s. In numerous glaring instances, humans have been subjugated to brutal oppression by those who, by their own teachings and sermons, should have known better. Orthodoxy alone is not enough to ensure that we will live as God requires. The history of...

Uncover Martin Luther’s Trinitarian Theology

Scholars often portray Luther as a heroic revolutionary, totally unlike his peers and forebears. But is this accurate? At times this revolutionary model of Luther has come to some shocking conclusions, particularly concerning the doctrine of the Trinity. In The Trinity and Martin Luther, Christine Helmer uncovers Luther’s trinitarian theology, upending the stereotypes attached to this historic figure. In this excerpt from the new preface to the revised edition, Helmer shows us how her research ...

Barth: We could have made Weinstein powerless

It has taken me a few days to process the sudden explosion of allegations of sexual harassment, abuse and assault made against Harvey Weinstein. Each woman who steps forward leaves me with a mixture of emotions. On the one hand, I feel an overwhelming sense of relief and pride when I see women joining together to share their stories. On the other, I experience a sense of horror over the staggering number of accusers. Women stripped of their power, silenced and shamed.

How Your Beliefs Can Prevent You From Changing

“Believing and Thinking” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward I want to talk about belief. Specifically, I want to talk about how belief can be the biggest barrier to personal transformation.

I made sure I studied under the most highly respected Old and New Testament scholars. I studied years of Greek, Hebrew, and A...

Barth, the Menardian

For the better part of half a century, John Barth was synonymous with what was the last self-conscious attempt at constructing a universal aesthetic movement speaking for all of humanity but recognizing only its bourgeois, white constituent. Much like Virginia Woolf once could claim that “on or about December, 1910, human character changed,” Barth would argue (with about the same dose of provincialism) that literary modernism was over. If Woolf’s epochal declaration of modernism was a program fo...
