Ingeld and Christ, Athens and Jerusalem

Alcuin, once asked the famous question, “Quid Hinieldus cum Christo? (What does Ingeld have to do with Christ?)” He was reproving the monks of Lindisfarne for listening to and studying the secular poetry of Beowulf. His question begs raises the question, “Should we read anything other than the Bible?” How could Beowulf or Homer or (to use a more recent example) Harry Potter be beneficial for the Christian?

Ponder these things.
