  1. A little taste from Part 2: Management always lives, works, and practices in and for an institution, which is a human community held together by the bond that, next to the tie of family, is the most powerful human bond: the work bond. And precisely because the object of management is a human community held together by the work bond for a common purpose, management always deals with the Nature of Man, and (as all of us with any practical experience learned) with Good and Evil as well. I have learned more theology as a practicing management consultant than I did when I taught religion. - Peter Drucker[1] 1. Quoted in Karen E. Linkletter, Joseph A. Maciariello, “Genealogy of a Social Ecologist,” Journal of Management History 15:4 (2009): 339.
  2. Add Daniel Boyarin's The Jewish Gospels: The Story of the Jewish Christ to the list. Checked it out yesterday and have (quite surprisingly) made quite a bit of progress.
  3. I think this article gets a lot right: Peter J. Leithart, "Christmas as Heavenly Economy," First Things: On the Square (Dec. 21, 2012).
  4. That...was...awesome (even if the audience didn't let them finish). I kind of wanted to see if Jason Segel would attempt Wilkinson's vocal panache on " ."
  5. I love both the book and musical, but my qualm with the musical has always been the beautiful singing sometimes overpowering the message within the lyrics and context. The movie uses the music, yet strips the voices bare. It provides the raw emotion for song's like "Valjean's Soliloquy," "I Dreamed a Dream," "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables," "Epilogue," etc. Even Crowe's restrained " " fit his sympathetic portrayal of Javert and was surprisingly good despite his weak voice. "Who Am I" and "Bring Him Home," however, still belong to Colm Wilkinson (who plays the Bishop in the film).As a huge fan of the musical (it has sentimental value for other reasons than artistic), I was pleased. I was on the verge of tears as soon as Wilkinson's Bishop started singing and remained that way until the very end. I cracked under Eddie Redmayne's version of " " (the most emotional rendition I've ever heard/seen) and lost it completely by the end. By the time the credits rolled, I was exhausted to say the least.
  6. Blasphemy. I suppose you're forgiven. Thus... By the witness of the martyrs By the Passion and the Blood God has raised you out of darkness I have bought your soul for God!
  7. After writing my latest Worlds Without End post and looking at posts from people like Volgadon, I've decided that I need to start reading fiction again. A Christmas Carol was the first fiction book I've read in about 4 years.
  8. So far, an excellent contextual summary.
  9. The following are all nearly complete: Charles ****ens, A Christmas Carol Daniel Kahneman, Thinking, Fast and Slow Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs April D. DeConick, Holy Misogyny: Why the Sex and Gender Conflicts in the Early Church Still Matter Elaine Pagels, Revelations: Visions, Prophecies, and Politics in the Book of Revelation John Tierney, Roy F. Baumeister, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength
  10. Since there have been several previously unpublished revelations by Joseph Smith that have surfaced and been recently published (e.g. The Joseph Smith Papers), I want to use this thread as a way to consolidate them. If you are familiar with Smith revelations that are currently not in the LDS canon, please list them, what they pertain to, and where they can be accessed.
  11. Grant H. Palmer, "Why William and Jane Law Left the LDS Church in 1844," John Whitmer Historical Association Journal 32:2 (2012). Thoughts?
  12. Comparatively, we all are already wearing costly apparel compared to the original authors of the Book of Mormon (both Nephite and 19th-century).
  13. Chris Smith introduced me to the group as a "Texas libertarian" with whom he had had political discussions. I told him he had officially tainted my reputation and was a filthy socialist.
  14. Why thank you. I haven't let my filthy libertarianism creep in just yet over there.
  15. For whatever reason, I couldn't post the link or text from my blog. So, see my blog link in my tagline for my own views on Black Friday.
