Imagining Tom Bombadil's living room

  1. About halfway through In the House of Tom Bombadil by Chris Wiley as my reading for the evenings. Gonna go ahead and give it a highly recommended even if the second half fails just for getting me to spend some time thinking on the nature of dominon vs. domination in the light of how good leadership is portrayed in LOTR.
  2. New Pearl and Prodigal Podcast episode out: Egg-en-eh-tah
  3. Really interesting thoughts from Malcolm Guite in a podcast discussion with Russell Moore this week: link to the podcast
