What’s Wrong with the World is dedicated to the defense of what remains of Christendom, the civilization made by the men of the Cross of Christ. Athwart two hostile Powers we stand: the Jihad and Liberalism...read more


The current issue of The Christendom Review is now online. It was delayed by a bout of illness in our webmaster's family, for the good health of which entity I would ask you all to say a few prayers. In this issue we have Todd's own beautiful photography, the poetry debut (I believe) of a talented young woman out of Bryan College (something good's going on up there), Elena Lee Johnson, and of the essays I'd particularly recommend Lydia McGrew's "Epistemology, Miracles, and the God Who Speaks," in which she deconstructs the logical irrationality of certain argumentative strategies employed by atheists against Christians. Her offerings always sharpen the believer's intellectual armament, and in this regard she is a treasure. So read it.

In the Letter from the Editor, Rick Barnett takes note of the passing of Marion Montgomery, who was his personal friend. Mr. Montgomery - novelist, philosopher, cultural critic and Professor Emeritus at the University of Georgia - was also a friend to Flannery O'Connor and most of the major Southern writers of the 20th century. He was 86.

Yea for Elena! Yes, this is her first publication! I'll pass on the link to everyone.

Wow, Bill, your own essay is beautiful!

I was just going to make a comment about Bill's piece. Well worth reading.

Montgomery was a treasure. I finished reading his last book, With Walker Percy at the Tupperware Party, just a week or so before he passed. Like all his works, it was quite challenging in parts but very much rewarding of the effort. I'll be looking forward to that memorial issue.
