Bonhoeffer. Byzantium. Hollywood Religion.

Yesterday I reread Bonhoeffer’s “Cost of Discipleship” and was taken by the timeliness of his challenging words about cheap grace. I put together a sampler of Bonhoeffer quotes for your reading and reflecting. NYT carried another piece about the Glory of Byzantium Exhibit (foto right) , which I hope to see because it is a wonderful reflection of God-inspired art.

People Magazine takes a look at religion in Hollywood and also reprints an excerpt of a letter Kirk Douglas (Jewish) sent to Mel Gibson (Catholic) about the offensive anti-semitism he saw in The Passion.

For people who think the “What would Jesus Eat” book is about dieting a reminder that the goal is always to Sell Books!

And for those needing a lighter touch how about the definitive biblical proof that men are supposed to make the coffee?

Remember, “these are the best of times and the worst of times, but they are the only times we have.” (For Now).
