Review: Letters to Lalage: The Letters of Charles Williams to Lois Lang-Sims

Letters to Lalage: The Letters of Charles Williams to Lois Lang-Sims Letters to Lalage: The Letters of Charles Williams to Lois Lang-Sims by Charles Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Regrettably missing Lois’ side of the correspondence, casts quite some light on Charles Williams’ unhingedness — which is a pity since it seemingly killed on of the great genius of the XX Century way too early.

She was a young woman in process of reverting to Romanism, which is not actually that surprising given both Williams and Dorothy Sayers, a name quite present in these letters, were Anglo-romanists, and Tolkien a Romanist; even Lewis, the other big name presence, was a high-church Anglican, even if usually agreeable to Evangelicals. But it is still sad to see how Williams perhaps unwittingly helped her along in her way away from the Gospel, or what was left of it in Anglo-romanist, into downright Romanist ‘Christopaganism’ — even if admittedly anglosaxon Romanism is usually much better than its Iberian counterpart we know and loathe down here in Brazil.

Even while exposing him, she still valued Williams quite much, rating him higher than Lewis and Tolkien as a writer — which may be right enough.

Review: Sans feu ni lieu: signification biblique de la grande ville

Sans feu ni lieu: signification biblique de la grande ville Sans feu ni lieu: signification biblique de la grande ville by Jacques Ellul
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I ſhould take a ſtar off for ðe Univerſaliſm, but as ðe auþor manages to keep an element of divine judgement in his brand of univerſal ſalvation, & as it is a very intereſtiŋ & challengiŋ analyſis I know no peer of, I cannot but recommend for everyone who is not afraid of engagiŋ ſome hereſies to be able to glimpſe at Scripture anew.
