What inspired JRR Tolkein to create a fantasy world so complete that an agnostic friend told me the Silmarillon is his Genesis? What moved Johnny Cash to play in prisons and reach out to the brokenhearted? What motivated Francis Collins to defend his faith against Richard Dawkins even after being rejected by some evangelicals as a heretic for, among other things, believing in evolution?

The human heart is a mystery, driven by forces it does not understand. I am interested in what is known to the heart but not seen by the eye, and I am interested in how this has shaped our world.

For those interested, I have somewhat recently enjoyed books by these authors: Greg Boyd, Anne Lamott, Rob Bell, Francis Collins, Os Guiness. I also love this church in Boston: The Boston Vineyard.
