Beasts, Monsters, and the Religious Imagination

It’s eerie to read academic characterizations of that which you’ve discovered without guides, not knowing any guides to exist, more so when that discovery was so central and crucial to your entire existence.

This series promises to set up an interesting interplay of God as the ultimate, and perhaps gods as the “guides” of sorts, the characters in celebrated myths, through which God may be glimpsed.

I’m not entirely sure how that interplay might jive with my personal experiences of the ultimate and my gods. I look forward to obsessively reflecting upon that.
