Book cover for Anathem
They knew many things but had no idea why. And strangely this made them more, rather than less, certain that they were right.

I'm a weird one, I know, but Anathem is far and away my favorite Neal Stephenson book.

I really enjoyed this book! I’d easily give it 5 if it wasn’t for all the stupid words.

I’ve only read this and Seveneves.

Peter Rollins
“For when we genuinely look at how the other sees us, we are confronted with a distance that exists between the image we have of ourselves and the reality of our actions.”
Peter Rollins, The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction

Thomas Merton
“A “FAITH” that merely confirms us in opinionatedness and self-complacency may well be an expression of theological doubt. True faith is never merely a source of spiritual comfort. It may indeed bring peace, but before it does so it must involve us in struggle. A “faith” that avoids this struggle is really a temptation against true faith.”
Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation

Thomas Merton
“Do not think that you can show your love for Christ by hating those who seem to be His enemies on earth. Suppose they really do hate Him: nevertheless He loves them, and you cannot be united with Him unless you love them too.”
Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation

Thomas Merton
“A spirit that is drawn to God in contemplation will soon learn the value of obedience: the hardships and anguish he has to suffer every day from the burden of his own selfishness, his clumsiness, incompetence and pride will give him a hunger to be led and advised and directed by somebody else.”
Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation

Peter Rollins
“it can be said that God is not seen but is testified to in a particular way of seeing. Previously we saw how the Idol is experienced as existing, until we grasp it and discover that it doesn’t. Here God is felt not to exist, and yet by this act of calling everything into existence it seems that the moment we stop trying to grasp God the existence of God is indirectly testified to in the existence of everything we encounter.”
Peter Rollins, The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction
