The Girardian Lectionary

One of the things I have to do this year is design a lectionary. At present, I expect to use some computer programs to distribute elements of the readings—or the readings themselves—and to build it exclusively around the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation. At present I would like to point out that I have just discovered the Girardian Lectionary, whose introduction I like. I always waved René Girard in the face of atheists during debates, and it is good to have Girard geeks expand the tradition within the safe borders of a sound Christology. It may even be that René Girard is the ultimate philosopher of our generation, like John Calvin was for his age, or Aquinas, or Augustine, or Plato, or Aristotle, or greater.
