from the Archives: Poetry of Truth Part 29

Gil Bailie begins the 5th cassette tape from the Poetry of Truth series with this quote from Henri de Lubac:

“There is the hacknedely moralizing interpretation of those who have not studied the subject historically, and there is the narrowly historical interpretation of those who have not gone deeply into it spiritually. These are the alternating forms of mediocrity.”

With this he starts a prolonged excursus on the story of Herod, John the Baptist and Jesus. This will continue over the next few posted excerpts.
