Gilead and the Shroud

Category: Miscellaneous :: Permalink

First, I saw Peter Leithart’s review of Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead. Then, I saw the same book reviewed in Books and Culture. It’s almost enough to make me drop what I’m reading now and rush out to get a copy!

By the way, for all you Shroud of Turin buffs (are there such people?), the current issue of Books and Culture also contains Nathan Wilson‘s “Father Brown Fakes the Shroud,” which describes how he managed to create something very much like the Shroud. Very interesting.
