Here are the top 10 posts from the past two months at Mere-O:

  1. unpacked the music of Terence Malick's beautiful Tree of Life and how it should affect our understanding of it.
  2. I examined  parents who allow their children to have sex with others provided it's in their own homes generated a number of comments.  Check out "The Soft Bigotry of Low Sexual Expectations."
  3. Nathan Hitchen submitted a guest review of Tree of Life which took a very different approach than mine.
  4. In light of the release of the final Harry Potter installment, Cate offered an appreciation of the series.
  5. Cate also penned a lovely two part meditation on what it means to forgive someone when you can't forget their offense.  See part one and part two.
  6. took on religious liberties in light of the decision by New York to permit gay marriage.
  7. I highlighted and reflected on a long essay on consumerism and Christian music.
  8. I highlighted five books on the body for evangelicals that are not his own.
  9. Luke Timothy Johnson claims the mantle of "experience" for approving of homosexuality within the church.  And I linked to him.
  10. Finally, we discussed whether postmodernism can be, or not be.  Which isn't the only question, but it's an interesting one.
