Another nugget from my Cultural Literacy list. I just listened through it once, so it's not surprising I didn't quite get everything, but I have a much better appreciation for the work. In particular, it was interesting to learn how Christian theology really hasn't changed all that much. I mean, some of the themes and topics I heard here were very similar to things I read in contemporary Christian living books today.

An interesting journalistic (that sounds better than 'diaretic') observation... I've never really understood the (primarily Catholic?) concept of Purgatory, but as it is portrayed in this work, it's actually a bit understandable!
