A Novel Idea*

The monk wrote, “…the
     Christian sect was radical
because it encouraged
     alternative behaviors that
were both attractive to
     those at the bottom and
threatening to the world-
     view of empire.” The man
thought about where he
     lives and the churches in
town and what is preached
     from the pulpits and he
thought more about the
     monk’s words and then
he said to himself, “My,
     what a novel idea.”
