Commonplace Monday

"Anyone who is indifferent to sanctification is indifferent to the glory of Christ." Kevin DeYoung


Commonplace Monday is a series of posts wherein, on Monday mornings, I share short quips, sentences -perhaps as much as a paragraph- which I have collected in my various commonplace books and files. If I wrote down or recall where it came from I will certainly give attribution. However, sometimes I write down things and not where they came from. So if you see anything like that here and recognize it, that's what comment sections are for.

Book Review: That Hideous Strength

I loved all three of the space trilogy books, but this one took the cake. Part of that is simply due to the longer, more complex, nature of the story. But the themes he dealt with in terms of scientism and anti-supernaturalism leading to an anti-nature philosophy seem so stinking prescient as I concurrently read news stories about transgenderism, surrogate parenting, and false wombs. 
Lewis lays bare the false gods of our modern age, and reminds us that the True Lord of all will have the final say.
