1. Shijung Kim: ‘Double Shadow’ Presents a New Way to Pray
“In the collection, his prayer-like poems create a magical, paganistic landscape that seems to offer visual sublimation for spiritual struggle, neither defying nor accepting skepticism. It is as if one were to re-learn through Phillips’ mystical imagery how to pray—a new kind of prayer inspired by faith, disbelief, or even the inability to choose between the two.”

2. Rev. Susan Sparks: World Peace … One Joke at a Time
“A Rabbi, a Muslim, and a Baptist preacher walk into a room. (Rim shot!) Yes, it is the setup for a joke, but not like you expect… the tour is to build bridges and reconcile differences through humor. The three of us believe that humor may be the quickest way to world peace. Given the current headlines, it’s hard to imagine a message the world needs more.”

3. Kathryn Gin: Why the Hell Does Hell Still Matter?
“Clearly Bell’s universalist-leaning view isn’t new. What’s surprising isn’t his posture, it’s the recurrence of controversies over hell, century after century, in such similar ways. Why is hell such a big deal in America? Or to put it more bluntly: why the hell does hell still matter? According to a number of columnists, hell doesn’t really matter anymore—at least not to most Americans.”

4. Reuters: China Says Everything Normal at Restive Tibetan Temple
“China has said everything was “normal” at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery after the Dalai Lama urged restraint in a stand-off between security forces and Tibetans at the temple in southwest China.”
