We offer here brief weekly readings primarily from the Fathers of the Church, both Eastern & Western, ancient & recent. Occasionally, we will also include more contemporary voices by folks who have not been canonized, including the Inklings. The Fathers and others who penned these words are speaking to you personally—note each entry's title. They seek to spur you on, to encourage you to run with endurance the race set before you. Sign up for the Eighth Day Digest and receive these posts weekly.
We offer here reflections (short and personal, up to 500 words) and essays (longer and sometimes more scholarly, mostly up to 1200 words but occasionally longer) categorized like the Eighth Day Books Catalog: Of Books, Culture & Learning; The Spiritual Life; Athletes of Prayer; Theology & Patristics; Church History; Scripture & Biblical Studies; Liturgy & Worship; Ways of Seeing; Philosophy & Religion; The Modern World, Science & God; C. S. Lewis & Friends; and Books of Timeless Interest. We've also added "Marriage & Family", "Symposium Reflections", "Inklings Fest Reflections", and "Great Conversations." Sign up for the Eighth Day Digest and receive at least one new "Essay & Reflection" weekly.
Using the same categories as "Essays & Reflections" from the Eighth Day Books Catalog, these book reviews include both new reviews from staff and volunteers for both the Bookstore and the Institute and old reviews from the Eighth Day Catalogs. Sign up for the Eighth Day Digest and receive at least one "Eighth Day View" weekly.
