The Depths of Racist Vileness

Posted in Modern Culture by Jim on 24 May 2017

Are enfleshed in this person.

A “shabby racist” who kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach, causing her to lose her baby, has been jailed for more than three years.  As Samsam Haji-Ali shouted “I’m pregnant”, David Gallacher continued his sustained attack on her outside a Co-op in Bletchley, Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury Crown Court heard.  The 34-year-old was left bleeding and rolling on the floor after the assault and miscarried her twins several weeks later. Her husband Abdullah Sulamain, 40, was also left needing stitches after he was hit with a wine bottle during the attack.

Three years isn’t long enough.  He’s a murderer.  He should be imprisoned for life.

Shifting Patterns of Reformed Tradition

Posted in Church History by Jim on 24 May 2017

978-3-525-55065-6The thirteen essays in this volume were all originally presented at international conferences or in public lectures.They address three main areas of inquiry, all of which, in one way or another, are of key importance in early modern historical discourse and theological thinking: (1) the theological diversity and debates within the Reformed tradition in the sixteenth century and beyond; (2) Peter Martyr Vermigli’s noteworthy contribution to Reformed ecclesiology and biblical exegesis; and (3) the later development and enrichment of Reformed thought on both sides of the Atlantic. They show that the Reformed tradition was neither monolithic, nor monochrome, nor immutable, but evolved in different, if interrelated, patterns and directions.

I’ve reviewed the essays in this collection from the extraordinarily learned Emidio Campi and can honestly say that they are exceptionally interesting.  My review will appear in Zwingliana soon.  Look for it there.

And more. And be sure to watch the video- it features Peter Opitz.

Oh Carl, in fact, absence of evidence is evidence of nothing.  As I’ve said for many years.
