Today’s religion columns –

March 17, 2007

Steinfels in the Times writes about Charles Taylor, the new Templeton winner, and about the awkwardness of the terms “progress in religion” and “discoveries about spiritual realities.”

Rich Barlow in the Globe discusses a theologian named Kirk B. Jones, who challenges the Purpose-Driven Life idea. He posits a loving God who, rather than having a fore-ordained plan for us, wants us to explore and make our own choices in life and is happy with whatever we choose. (What becomes of sin then? Hopefully it’s out the window altogether…)
