We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

A New Review at RPKR

I have just posted a review of David Backes, A Wilderness Within: The Life of Sigurd F. Olson (Univ. of Minnesota, 1997) on Rom Phra Khun Reviews.  Olson was a woodsman, educator, writer, conservationist, and rough-hewn philosopher-theologian who had a wide following beginning in the 1950s.  Backes' biography of him is a good book.  More is told in the review, which I recommend to you.
