It’s Friday! This week is going by awfully fast. Just yesterday, it seemed to be Wednesday. . . .
At Postmodern Conservative, John Presnall defends himself. (Quoth Presnall: “Whenever someone you don’t really know tells you that you must not do such and such, it often provokes a desire to do that very same such and such.” True enough!) Peter Lawler welcomes some new contributors to the blog (and defends Presnall along the way).
More posts about Robert W. Jenson’s Systematic Theology over at Peter Leithart’s blog. Two of them focus on Jenson’s relationship to Karl Barth, and one is a more straight-forward discussion of the book itself. He also has a post up on Augustine and the Trinity. And a post about porches (not front ones).
Meanwhile, here on First Thoughts, Mark Movsesian has some more information about that New Jersey rabbi who kidnapped men in order to force them to divorce their wives, Matthew J. Franck thinks it’s not all that hard being left handed, and David Mills highlights an article over at The New Atlantis about philanthropy’s original sin.
Over at On the Square, Russ Saltzman informs us it is that hard being left handed, Ralph Hancock returns to clarify his thoughts on Mormon progressives, Ryan T. Anderson points out that social and fiscal conservatism depend on each other, and Peter J. Leithart points out that orthodoxy is harder than heterodoxy.
