last Sunday was Crissy’s birthday, and after e had lunch with my parents we hooked up with some good friends and ended up wandering around Southwell and having a look around the cathedral. Disconcertingly, everyone noticed the books for sale at the back end of the building before I did.
Unsurprisingly the books on offer all had a religious theme and most were of little interest to me, but I did manage to find a few books that tickled my fancy. The technical side, so to speak, of faith really interests me, the arguments for and against, and three of those books fit the bill.
The fourth book has a wonderful title Modern Art and the Death of Culture, and of course its all doom and gloom hating on modern art whilst talking about the Christian way being the way forward as a potential to reverse the trend. I think the premise is interesting and it sits forlornly on my work desk begging to be read as I go about my daytime work.
A better look at the aforementioned book in the near future may make me revise my thoughts as checking various reviews it seems to be a well written and interesting read, and I hate to misrepresent books I haven’t had a chance to go over properly yet.
As the choir kicked in for the afternoon service, we exited the cathedral, as collectively hungry for food as I was to delve into the deeper theology of Christianity and faith as a whole. A Chicken Tikka Masala later, and we had the added pleasure of rounding off our day by playing with a dog, and what can be better than that?
