The Past as Prologue:
Grand Rapids Revisited
".... recent books testify further to Calvin College's unparalleled
leadership in the field of Christian historiography. More than anyone
else, the historians at Calvin (along with their Dutch Reformed
publishers at Eerdmans) have led the way in first-rate thinking about
the relationship between faith and history. One does not need to be a
Calvinist, or a historian for that matter, to appreciate this thinking
and its influence on a wide variety of intellectuals.
I say this as a Lutheran who must confess in all honesty that
his own American Lutheran tradition cannot hold a candle to the
Calvinists in Grand Rapids...."

Excerpt from Fritz Leiber's"Time traveling, which is not quite the good clean boyish fun
it's cracked up to be, started for me when this woman with the sigil on
her forehead looked in on me from the open doorway of the hotel bedroom
where I'd hidden myself and the bottles and asked me, 'Look, Buster, do
you want to live?'"
"I need a photo-opportunity,
I want a shot at redemption.
Don't want to end up a cartoon
In a cartoon graveyard."
Spider is THE journalist of the future. He smokes, he does drugs, and he
kicks ass. The drugs are going to eventually kill him but not before
he gets his way. And his way is the demise of the failed American dream.
Although full of hate, he cares about his city. All he wants to
bring the world is truth. Spider Jerusalem, conscience of the City.
Frightening thought, but he's the only one we've got."
