A Few Comments On My Latest Book

“When I was young, popular music was a sort of religion to me, but then I got a job teaching classical literature, and over the last twenty years, I’ve come to see just how very different things which last are from pleasant, trendy things that come and go quickly. I’ve also seen how prolonged exposure to blockbuster films, blockbuster novels, and blockbuster theologies corrupt our ability to enjoy or even understand real beauty or piety. I have seen this in my students. I have seen it in myself.

It’s never too late, of course. The responsibility to love and enjoy beautiful things is a lifelong task which is not abrogated simply because we start late.”
