Noted This Week

WHENEVER WE LEARN about a web site that we haven't previously listed, we'll note it here. Sometimes such sites are brand new and sometimes they have been around for a while without our having noticed. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages. We do not mention on this page remakes of sites that are already in our listings.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site. If you still can't find it, please let us know.

If you would like your website listed at Anglicans Online, please use this form to tell us about it.


Week of 4 February 2008

Parishes

Book Reviews
Godís Continent: Christianity, Islam, and Europe's Religious Crisis, by Philip Jenkins, reviewed by John Arnold. 'In its attitudes to women, homosexuality, blasphemy, toleration, and the use of force, contemporary Islam is holding up the mirror to our own past, which some of us have only recently begun to repudiate.' [Search inside]

The Blackwell Companion to Eastern Christianity, edited by Ken Parry, reviewed by Hugh Wybrew.

A Theology of Public Life, by Charles Mathewes, reviewed by Michael Northcott. 'The book is in two parts. The first of these is a meditation on Augustine’s account of the two cities, which Mathewes translates in terms of life in the world and life together. The second part reads the duties of Christian citizenship through the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love.' [Search inside]

Worth Noting
God in the Whitehouse: Episcopal priest Randall Balmer talks about religion in American politics during this interview with National Public Radio (Washington DC).

Love can teach us to listen to our enduring melodies: Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks writes in the Times (London). 'Faith, I suspect, is more like music than like science. Science analyses, music integrates. And as music connects note to note, so faith connects episode to episode, life to life, age to age in a timeless melody that breaks into time. God is the composer and librettist. We are each called on to be voices in the choir, singers of God’s song.'

Vandalising Anglican culture: The Australian Broadcasting Corporation interviews Peter Phillips, Director of the Tallis Scholars and a columnist for The Spectator. The subject of the interview is this article that Mr Phillips wrote about music in the Diocese of Sydney.
