It's Been a While!

Wow, sorry for the neglect of Barque! After I finished the Eucharist series, I decided I needed to catch up over at Doubting Thomist. Then I started back at my old Bible College, in order to finish off my Bachelor of Religious Education. I'm hoping, once that's finished (in April), I can go on to get a teaching degree, and become a Catholic high school religion teacher. Anyway, between part-time courses and a full-time job, I've had little time to dive into any new topics here.

I've now finished this semester, and plan to publish on this blog two papers that I wrote for my hermeneutics class over the Advent/Christmas break. They'll be published in parts, because otherwise their length would be overwhelming!

The first is an exegetical look at Ephesians 2:1-10 and a refutation of the Protestant notion of Sola Fide, and the second is a treatise on the fundamental principles of biblical interpretation from a Catholic perspective. Before I publish it here, I plan to expand certain parts of it in order to bolster its apologetic aspects, especially as pertains to the Protestant notion of Sola Scriptura.

Next semester, I've got a course in Science and Christianity, and a course called "Worldview Studies", which will, I hear, be pretty philosophical. So I'm excited! And if the opportunity presents itself (as I'm sure it will), I will write Catholic-centric papers for those courses, and insofar as they have an apologetical bent, I will publish them here, as well!

Wishing you all a Blessed Advent, as we await the coming of Our Lord,
God bless,
