“What fascinates us about Satan is the way he expresses qualities that go beyond what we ordinarily recognize as human. Satan evokes more than the greed, envy, lust, and anger we identify with our own worst impulses, and more than what we call brutality, which imputes to human beings a resemblance to animals (‘brutes’). Thousands of years of tradition have characterized Satan instead as a spirit.” —from The Origin of Satan: How Christians Demonized Jews, Pagans, and Heretics By Elaine Pagels

In "The Handmaid's Tale," Atwood imagines a future where the United States has become The Republic of Gilead, where women are strictly controlled. Unable to have jobs or money, they are either forced to be chaste, childless "Wives," housekeeping "Marthas," or reproductive "Handmaids" who turn their offspring over to the Wives. The tale is told by Offred, a handmaid who can still recall the past and explains how the misogynistic society came to be.

To read. -M || There are two supreme predators on the planet with the most complex brains in nature: humans & orcas. In the 20th century alone, one of these animals killed 200 m members of its own species, the other killed none. Jeffrey Masson’s fascinating new book begins here: There is something different about us. In Beasts he demonstrates that the violence we perceive in the "wild" is mostly a matter of projection. We link the basest human behavior to animals, to "beasts"

The Heart of Christianity: Rediscovering a Life of Faith - Marcus J. Borg Turning point in my personal faith and world-view. A move toward a more honest, reasonable, and transcendent view of the Christian faith.
Book Review: The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg - This is a book about the essentials of Christianity written from an Emergent (his word) Christian. Really it is works through most of the traditional areas of systematic theology from a Liberal Protestant perspective. He brings useful counterpoint to many Evangelical theological ideas. So Evangelicals will alternately be frustrated and intrigued. Another book to read.
A great overview of the emergent paradigm of Christianity. Marcus Borg is not for everyone, but if you find yourself being dragged down by literalist, fundamental interpretations of Christianity that seem irrelevant, or just don't make sense, give Borg a try. If you revere the teachings of Christ but fail to see how that is reflected in many of the most visible forms of Christianity in our world today, you may love this book.
