“Modern Book Printing” sculpture commemorating its inventor Gutenberg on the occasion of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Luther is thicker than Kant, but not as wide. Goethe is the base. Hmmm. But glad to see the littleness of Marx!
A STIMULATING TEN MINUTE CONVERSATION:
I met Dave and Gwen McCoy about twenty years ago when I was a pastor. Wonderful folks!
Dave was one of our best Sunday school teachers. Dave is amillennial in his understanding of so-called “end-times” matters or at least he used to be. The church was and remains premillennial. I am now “agnostic” on how it will all end/begin anew, but that topic is for another time.
Back to Dave. Our elders still allowed Dave to teach and several sat in his class. Indeed, they told me on a regular basis how much they were learning from Dave.
Though Dave’s training is in the sciences (he holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry), he has a keen interest in literature and the arts. I vividly remember seeing several of his works of art on display throughout his home.
Well, what I saw about twenty years ago, you can see for yourself via the marvels of the Internet. By the way, the picture above depicts Ecc. 9:4 about how it is “better to be a live dog than a dead lion.”
A wonderful series of short teaching videos on art from the Civil War era. You can learn a lot about history and culture from the art of the period.
