My Blogging Project For Late Summer

The last week has mostly been spent going through our household belongings as prepare to leave Delhi; selling some things, giving away many others. I have far too many books (far, far too many).

The last week has mostly been spent going through our household belongings as prepare to leave Delhi; selling some things, giving away many others. I have far too many books (far, far too many). It has been an usually pleasant experience to give four boxes of various theological texts away to the current minister of our church. Unfortunately, this cull hasn’t dented my library as much as I hoped it would. I still have too many books

A side-effect of working through the library, book by book, has been to reacquaint me with the texts that have influenced my thinking. I’ve made a list of 11 books (yeah my list goes up to eleven!), that reflect with my current thinking. These are not necessarily the best books in the library, but rather the ones that call to me for a re-read.

My plan is to spend the second half of the summer (and probably early autumn), once the move is over and we have enjoyed a brief sojourn in Australia, re-reading these books and blogging a few thoughts. For your interest, here is the list.

A Churchless Faith – Alan Jamieson
All In Sync – Robert Wuthnow
On Belief – Slavoj Zizek
Moral Man And Immoral Society – Reinhold Neihuhr
The Consumer Society – Jean Baudrillard
The Scapegoat – Rene Girard
Secrets – Sissela Bok
The Secular City – Harvey Cox
The Uses Of Disorder – Richard Sennett
Virtual Faith – Tom Beaudoin
Witness: Systematic Theology Volume 3 – James McClendon

UPDATE: I never got around to either reading all these books or writing blogposts about them!
