This is a really helpful article... especially seeing the comparison of Eccl. and Orwell. I'm neck deep in writing about music and worship and some of the implications of post-modernism on it... and this is so helpful in showing the turn we are making away from the rationalism of the Enlightenment.

Hey Michael,

Thanks for the article. Very important stuff. And thanks for introducing us to Kenneth Bailey. I went to his website and checked out his bio. What an interesting guy! Makes me want to hear more of what he has to say.


Michael W. Kruse

I agree, Robert. Bailey has been writing about this perspective on Jesus for more than thrity years. His insights into the Eastern mind and how our Western thinking has distorted our understanding of the faith are profound.

Brad, he is a fascinating person with a rich life. He has had more impact on my theology then probably any other one person I can think of, though, some I'm sure would say he has not had enough impact on me. :) Anyway, I expect there were will be much more about Bailey at this blog in 2008.
