I well remember my visit to Nottingham, England back in the mid-80s. My family and I were staying in Lincoln. I took the train to Nottingham and visited with Thomas Smail, a Scottish theologian whose books and articles I had read but had never met or even corresponded with. He was gracious and hospitable. I do not remember what we talked about. I suspect we talked about the Holy Spirit and the unconditionality of grace. I was disappointed that there was no Sherwood Forest to be seen.
David Mosely is working on his Ph.D. at the University of Nottingham and shares his thoughts and reflections on his blog Letters from Nottingham. In his most recent article he cites the most popular of his articles over the past year, and then mentions some of his favorite blogs. I am honored that Eclectic Orthodoxy is included in his list. Thank you, Sir.
David and I share a common interest in Tolkien and Lewis and the mythopoeic imagination.
