Recent movies: Reptilian*; Return of Mothra I & II**;

Recent books: Judges; I Timothy; Schlatter, The Theology of the Apostles; Norton selections from Spenser, The Faerie Queene; Brust, The Lord of Castle Black; Luther, Lectures on Genesis 15-20;


That nothing save the light of truth allays

Our intellect's disquiet I now see plain --

God's truth, which holds all truth within its rays.

Intellect, like a wild thing in its den,

When it has run and reached it, there can rest,

As reach it must, else all desire were vain.

Hence, at the foot of truth, the undying quest

Springs like a shoot, and doubt is still the lure

That speeds us toward the height from crest to crest.

-- Dante, Paradiso, IV.124-132 (Sayers trans.)
