Whatcha readin'? I'm interested in anything you plan to read, have read, think I should read, or think I should avoid! :) I've finally got two minutes to rub together in terms of book material after a laborious semester of doctrine.
I just finished Generous Or+hodoxy by Brian McLaren and am halfway through Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. I want to give my impressions of Brian's book some time later this week and especially am looking forward to writing about Nafisi's book. She really turns the thumb screws on Islamic extremism and I'm amazed that more people haven't been urging the reading of her book in the quarters I hang out. I highly recommend it for those who are trying to sort out how to feel about Islam, Iran and the relationship to the west. Let's just say that my deepest concerns are confirmed by her insights. And her writing is brilliant.
Next on my list is Night by Elie Weisel (who will be on Oprah today) and then another Brian book The Secret Message of Jesus.
After that, I'll be due for some fiction. Any hot tips? I'd also love to hear about other theology books (addict here) that I might not have thought about for awhile or that you really liked.
