Book Meme

From my friend's blog at


The rules are:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest!

And I would have to add a 6. to that: don't include dictionaries and atlases, because those were the closest books to me:

Thus Aubrey Moore argues that evolution restored 'the truth of the divine immanence', which Deism had denied--but this led to a pantheistic reaction. In relation to these extremes, orthodox theism could be presented as reasonable, as 'the safegaurd of rational religion against deism and pantheism'. Another attempt to integrate evolutionary theory with previous Christian thought was made in this volume by J.R. Illingworth, who argued that 'the theory of evolution has recalled our minds to the "cosmical significance" of the incarnation', which was a prominent thought in the early and medieval Church.The tone here is different from that of natural theology a la Paley, but also different from that of Essays and Reviews.

The Study of Anglicanism, eds. S Sykes, J Booty, and J Knight. So sad that it turned out to be such a dry selection from a great collection of essays. This was from the essay "Reason".

Let's see if Erik Twist posts something interesting on his blog at Priests and Paramedics
