Things present and things to come
Very much looking forward to the discussion with Iain McGilchrist.
Excellent news all round. I particularly look forward to the conversation with Iain McGilchrist.
When will you post the transcript for the paper Roland delivered in Kyoto? For that matter, when will we get a video interview with Roland? I realize he's quite busy but it would be nice to see him once in a while.
The Master (Roland) and His Emissary (David)?
Looking forward to the conversation with McGilchrist.
Also, I just finished a work of speculative fiction which might interest you - Ray Nayler's Mountain in the Sea. Major themes include consciousness, AI, Buddhism (kind of), and cephalopods. Highly recommended.
My copy of the NT landed yesterday (I am a new reader of yours, so good timing for me with the second edition) and my wife and I had a laugh discussing what “whorishness” meant in the context of Jesus’ divorce proclamations in Matthew 19. I wonder if “fornication” tickled the ear back in 1611 in the same way!
Congratulations on the nomination
There is a great lecture series by Michael Sugrue that I think folks in this forum may appreciate: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWUJzq4Xl33kxEesoegdqtT-YvtUxnZ21
The evangelical christians I know like to dismiss formalities in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches such as apostolic succession, real presence in the eucharist, confession to priests, sacramental authority (i.e. that not just anyone can baptize or administer communion etc). Do you think they have a point? It seems to me that the early Christians were more like the Orthodox/Catholic than the evangelicals on these sorts of things. But, the early church was over 2000 years ago and the apostolic succession and church authorities have a long history of abuse and misdirection. So part of me can certainly understand the appeal of just reading the Bible and church fathers and breaking bread with friends in the faith rather than being part of a big institution. I feel torn here.
I propose a cookbook on Mediterranean food and other matters. Phyllo and Philosophy, Gelato and Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Roland in Moonlight in Marseille—writes itself.
I have your first NT translation and may pickup the second one as well. Could you tell me which Bible translations used in churches you would consider to be relatively good? Do you have any thoughts on the NABRE?
Sounds like interesting stuff to come.Congratulations on the nomination.I re read (or actually listened this time around on audio)the God:sat chit anada book a few months before reading you are gods and it reads as a great spiritual successor to that work.
truly grateful every verse isn’t capitalized anymore. what a wonderfully disruptive translation this is!
I’ll be honest, I find your choosing of “exogenously” a delicious rendering for the rhyming in that original Greek verse!
I've been greatly enjoying your New Testament's Second Edition! What are your thoughts on the alternative textual tradition in Luke's Gospel concerning Christ's baptism (Σὺ εἶ ὁ υἱός μου ὁ ἀγαπητός, ἐν σοὶ εὐδόκησα v. υἱός μου εἶ σύ ἐγὼ σήμερον γεγέννηκά σε) and the Eucharistic institution (the Alexandrine tradition has Matthew-like verses inserted after the first cup of wine and bread, introducing a second cup)?
Exciting things, thank you. How is Lent going for you, Dr. Hart?
