A Less Provisional Synthesis

What follows is a brief synthesis of the topics I have been dealing with recently, and a good indicator of the direction my next book, Idols of Civilization, is taking. I am posting it here as a guide to the direction my thought since Repent has taken. Donate via PayPal or Donate via Venmo In the book of […]
