the merging of histories – Zach Smith

I’ve been thinking about the history of Christianity and it’s relation to the even more distant past. We saw in Siena, Italy a place where ancient Greek thought was mixed with the history of Christianity. The engineers of this church believed that Virgil and Dante were prophets of christian thought.

I think this thinking is really amazing and it can really help a Christian today. When we believe that this prophetic good can come from non-Christians I think our worldview is much more Chirst like. Our eyes can be open to the beauty and truth that comes from all kinds of poeple.
