Yet Again with the Pope
More bloglinks: Oliver Kamm: A papal legacy: ["Timothy Garton Ash in The Guardian gives the most thoughtful commentary I have seen in the UK press on the political impact of John Paul’s papacy. Evidently apprehensive at gaining a reputation for being informed and thoughtful, the newspaper also runs a litany of complaint by Terry Eagleton, an early and impressionable exponent (under the auspices of the radical-Catholic Slant magazine) of the Christian-Marxist dialogue of the 1960s, who has apparently never come to terms with its futility."]
Via Adam Kotsko: Zizek on the Pope's Failures, Roland Boer on Terry Eagleton and the Vicissitudes of Christology and First Things on Eagleton's Catholicism.
