I’m excited to announce that I have just published an article in the Evangelization and Culture journal of Bishop Robert Barron’s Word on Fire Institute. The article is entitled “In Praise of ‘Perfect Hatred’: How to Read the Old Testament’s Cursing Psalms.” Using the violent outburst of Psalm 139:19-22 as its starting point, the essay explores the question of why it is that the Old Testament contains so many passages that seem to contradict what we know of God’s goodness in light of Jesus Christ. From there, it unfolds the wisdom of the Church Fathers on how these same passages can be made spiritually fruitful in our lives today. This journal is a great new endeavor from a trusted source in Catholic thought, and I’m thrilled to have been able to make a small contribution to it. The journal can be subscribed to here.
