Rudyard Kipling: Politically Incorrect

I frequent Denny Burk’s blog.  Here is a link to the commencement address he gave at Boyce College, where he is Associate Professor of New Testament.  His address included the Kipling poem “The Gods of the Copybook Headings.”  This is outstanding.

His backstory on the poem is also important, for those of us whose knowledge of Kipling is limited to his children’s stories.
