Back to Germany
The Portugal holiday was wonderful, beautiful, warm and relaxing – a deeply pleasurable experience for us all. And I learnt a lot from the books I took with me. Among others I read (though didn’t finish), Vanhoozer’s The Drama of Doctrine, and the interesting Parallel Worlds by Michio Kaku. More on those later.
Oddly enough, I’ve only been a week away from a keyboard, but I already feel like I’ve forgotten where the keys are, and how to make a good sentence!
But even worse, I’m afraid, while I was away, not one person managed to correctly guess the mystery author. Dan, again, was closest with his ‘it’s got to be somebody who is engaging with Aquinas’. Clever chap that man. Yes indeed, the author was an Aquinas expert. His name is Josef Pieper, and he wrote the words in Happiness & Contemplation (St. Augustine’s Press: Indiana, 1998 ).
