Smashed

I’m getting my little, neat religious world rocked back on it’s heels these days.

Many years ago, so many that it actually startles me, when I was in graduate school, I remember being overwhelmed at the material I was discovering. My tidy little world view was smashed into thousands of pieces as I was exposed to the wonders and intricacies of of original biblical languages, textual criticism, exegesis, archeology and biblical history.

It was heady stuff. Liberating in some ways, awe inspiring in others and deliciously destructive in yet others.

Much water under the bridge since then. Innocence, tom-foolery and reason long gone.

These days there seems to be a whole new “awakening” greeting me.

This is going to be interesting…
