Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Quote of the Week

"Men cannot commit a sin so great as to exhaust the infinite love of God....Believe that God loves you as you cannot conceive; that He loves you with your sin, in your sin....All things are atoned for, all things are saved by love. If I, a sinner, even as you are, am tender with you and have pity on you, how much more will God!"

- Fyodor Dostoevsky, from The Brothers Karamazov (Book 1, Ch. 3)

(Painting: "Portrait of the Writer Fyodor Dostoevsky," by Vasily Perov, 1872, oil on canvas)
