Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
Oh yay! I'm so excited for this. I've been a fan of your blog ever since I started reading it a few months ago and finally got on the podcast bandwagon a couple of weeks ago, so of course A Good Story Is Hard to Find was at the top of my list. I love it, especially your discussions of Mostly Martha, Jurassic Park (which I sent to a scientifically-minded friend of mine who is struggling in his faith), and the Sixth Sense. It's so much fun to rediscover some of my favorite stories through your eyes, and I've been inspired to re-read Jurassic Park and re-watch both of the films above because of y'all. Kudos, and thanks for sharing your love for Reality with us. :)
Wow! You just MADE MY DAY! Thank you so much Christina Grace! :-)
You're most welcome! I finished listening to the podcast yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed your reflections on Jesus of Nazareth; it's been a few years since I've read the first volume and of course you and Scott made me want to read it all over again! I highly recommend the Infancy Narratives (which I read in about two days because it was so short and fascinating)--great Advent reading.
I am so glad you did this book! I just finished 'The Infancy Narratives' not too long ago, and it is just as amazing (just like everything Benedict writes). Even though it's barely 130 pages, I found myself writing all over it. It is a super fast read too. With each of his books, I feel as if he is the 'doorman' to Christ-as the sweet professor he simply stands aside and shows the reader the way into a chamber of wonders.
JoAnna, you just made our day! Thank you for taking the time to comment ... it means a lot because we don't get tons of feedback on the podcast. :-)His books are simply amazing. I have heard that the Infancy Narratives is a quick read, though deep ... I love the way you expressed that, a doorman to Christ. Agreed!
Well, even if you don't get much feedback, please know that I love, love, love your podcast! I've just about managed to catch up on all the archives on my commute. I often find myself wanting to join the conversation through my stereo, especially during the recent months, in which I haven't been able to do a lot of reading myself. Keep up the great work! And PS-I don't know if you and Scott are the types to be adventurous and feature some poetry on one episode, but I'd really like to hear the two of you banter about T.S. Eliot's 'Four Quartets.' I started reading it annually in college, and I've had it on my brain a lot as it's coming time for a re-read. Loads of the 'one reality' to explore there :)
