Seeing From the Inside

There are limits to how much you can usefully say about the stained glass windows of King's College Chapel without actually going in to see them from the inside.

Bockmuehl uses this image to illustrate the inability of New Testament interpreters to successfully avoid dealing with truth claims and the impinging nature of the reality to which the texts point.

Other Blogging Haunts:

I sporadically blog at Canon Studies about (you guessed it), "Canon Studies."

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
