Today’s grace: Rene Girard & Gil Bailie
Today Mark Gordon at his blog, Suicide of the West, has a nice reflection on Rene Girard and Gil Bailie and the Anthropology of the Cross.
He concludes with the following comment: I believe this discovery is the key to reintroducing Christianity to postmodern Western civilization. Best of all, I have found that on a personal level the further one drills into the implications of Girardian theory, the deeper one’s appreciation grows for the truth of the orthodox Christian faith. As you begin this journey, “Be not afraid!” The work of Girard-Bailie is a profound escort into the anthropological heart of the Gospel, the bosom of the Church and the Mystery of Jesus Christ.
We 3 Massketeers proudly raise are pens high and heartily agree with Mark and salute Rene Girard and Gil Bailie.
