MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE PAGE GREATLY REVAMPED

Malcolm Muggeridge: The Iconoclast
http://ic.net/~erasmus/RAZ28.HTM

Some of the highlights of the new additions (there are now four to five times more links than before) include a downloadable PDF version of his book, A Third Testament, fourteen excerpts or articles from Muggeridge, an audio file of his appearance on William Buckley's Firing Line, in 1980, many new biographical articles, eight reviews of Gregory Wolfe's Malcolm Muggeridge: A Biography, and also excerpts from it, information on one-man shows by Peter Stockbridge and Dale Fincher, and two BBC radio show audio files. I also added some books to the bibliography and linked all but one of the list to the amazon.com pages.

HARRY POTTER PROS AND CONS

Harry Potter Series: Literary Magic or Magical Mystery Sewer?
http://socrates58.blogspot.com/2005_07_17_socrates58_archive.html#112175329466946924

I've added 66 new Harry Potter links to the bottom of my Romantic and Imaginative Theology page (an entirely new section). The articles / books / audio files are from all perspectives: 27 favor the series, 26 oppose it, and 13 offer both sides, or ambiguous or uncertain or neutral opinion. Almost all of the links are from a Christian perspective (Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox alike; e.g., John Granger: a leading proponent, is Orthodox). My own opinion on the matter is given in the paper above.

As you can see, a lot is added on a regular basis, and I hope visiting my website is a pleasant and helpful experience for you. I have enjoyed working on it (since January 1997), but my reward comes from seeing Catholic and Christian insight and truth (I just try to pass it on, as a vessel) going out to many people, who in turn can share it with others. Thanks for your interest, for visiting my website, and happy surfin' to ya!

In Christ,

Dave Armstrong
