Welcome! I am Dr. Douglas Beaumont – an author, professor, speaker, blogger, armchair philosopher, and back-seat theologian. This is where I come to ponder, vent, and occasionally provide something of intellectual substance.
In the menu bar above, you’ll find my blog, external articles, papers, etc. plus my speaking and teaching information. The script in the header is an exhortation to learning that I took (almost completely out of context) from Dante’s Inferno (III:14-15). In English it reads: “Here must all distrust be left behind; here all cowardice must die.”
I close comments pretty quickly because (a) I am too busy with real life to spend much time on combox discussions, (b) I do not like to have my thoughts challenged in any way ever, and (c) because of this.
“The most ridiculous thing in the world is a Ph.D. in theology, an oxymoron if one ever existed.”
– Frank Schaeffer
