Discussion

  • This week's reading focuses on non-Christian sources. What would change in these works if they were told from a Christian, particularly Augustinian, perspective? Would the basic human truths, if there are any, remain the same? If so, why? If not, why not and what does that suggest about the nature of human truths?

    • Li Bo was a drunk—a non-Christian way

    • The poem about staying drunk would not be considered in a religious text, unless trying to prove a moral point
