New today from the Century:
- Philip Jenkins on Africa's canon within the canon: "Here is my unscientific rule: if Martin Luther treated a biblical book with disdain, then that book is really popular in modern Africa." (subscription required)
- Steve Thorngate encounters a good-natured protest drummer: "At the corner waiting for the light to change, I stood next to a protest drummer who fit the stereotype well: unshorn, unkempt and not much over 20. While he drummed away, a man in his 60s joined us at the corner. This man was dressed crisply and professionally."
- David Heim highlights Century contributing editor Jason Byassee's article on Nadia Bolz-Weber and the House for All Sinners and Saints: "An outreach innovator, Bolz-Weber is a traditionalist when it comes to matters of liturgy and theology. She appears to have a special attachment to the doctrine of original sin."
