October 20, 2018 – I should thank the “ex-Christian” who recently linked to this post in her example of Bishop Nathan Baxter’s “hurting heart” as an example of “a virtue-signaling phrase.” If you are new, welcome! This is my personal blog. I am a scholar of ancient Hebrew and Jewish literature and a Christian. Most recently I am working on issues relating to suffering (and grace). Feel free to look around and comment!
