"Joe versus the volcano" blog

Mark Armitage, a lay Catholic academic writer, living in Durham, contributes occasional essays to journals such as The Thomist, New Blackfriars, Nova et Vetera and The Chesterton Review. He recently started a blog calledJoe versus the volcano.

The blog aims to present perspectives on theology, church-life and politics from a conservative Catholic perspective. As he explains, the title is taken from the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks film but "Joe" could refer to Joseph Ratzinger, warning us gently away from the destructive force that could sweep away life and civilisation.
