Christianity and Feminism: A Look into the Work of Mary Astell
The foundation of Mary Astell's argument was the concept that it was men, not God, nor women themselves, who made women inferior.

Faith and Paradox: G.K. Chesterton’s Philosophy of Christian Paradox
Within its long history, Christianity has been accused of almost every kind of vice imaginable. Strangely enough, its critics have attacked it for contradictory reasons. Some have decried it for its unworldliness and pessimistic outlook on the material world. Others have condemned Christianity for blinding the people, giving false promises of divine mercy and a glorious afterlife. Hell, it is said, is a doctrine breeding despair; but Heaven, they say with equal vehemence, is a doctrine breeding false hope.Chris Hauser | The Dartmouth Apologia | Volume 6, Issue 1, Fall 2011
Surprised: Wordsworth on the Coexistence of Joy and Sorrow
William Wordsworth wrote this sonnet two years after the sudden death of his four-year-old daughter, Catherine, but in it he grieves as though not a day has gone by.
