About the Blog

Welcome to An Inkling Under the Sun. Let me start by talking about how I chose the title.  In the 1930s and 1940s, there was a group of writers who called themselves the Inklings. Among them were J.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis; two men who have heavily shaped the way I think about and see the world.  Separately, Ecclesiastes 1:9 says “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” Anything I say has been said by those who came before. And guys like Tolkien and Lewis worked together to perceive the world through the lens of who is above the sun, who is Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My aim for this blog is show an inkling of what is under the sun, hopefully through the lens of who is above the sun.
