A former principal once said, “When Trent reads a book, we all read it with him.” This means I talk about what excites me. There are some important things that happen when I talk about the book I’m reading. Talking about ideas helps to clarify my understanding of them, and conversation helps to test these ideas. In short, I don’t know what I think until I talk about it. So this blog is really about entering into conversation with others so as to clarify and evaluate ideas.
I am currently teaching English, Literature and Bible at Abbotsford Christian School in British Columbia.
I have a Master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities (Philosophy, History and Literature) at Trinity Western University.
I love reading, thinking and writing. And because I really love movies, one is likely to find comments about films on this site whether they have to do with false dichotomies or not.
