About this author

John H.D. Lucy is originally from the Boston area; graduated from St. Michael's College summa cum laude and received a Masters of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

Lucy is generally a mysterious and mysteriously good-looking fellow who has knelt next to a wild baboon, been chased by a hungry hyena (or coyote, depending on who's telling the story) on his bicycle, and climbed Mt. Washington in his dreams. All true stories.

Well, I've had quite a few months. I got married, had two weeks honeymoon, started as the pastor of Memorial United Methodist Church, and have been so exhausted with all the newness that my free time has been taken up with, obviously, wasting time. I can't say that I'm beyond that stage quite yet, but I have at least gotten around to telling the world who the winner of my promotion from two mon... Read more of this blog post »

Revelations by Elaine Pagels
Rate this book
Clear rating
While I don't always agree with Pagels' methods (as evidenced in the footnotes... but most readers won't care about footnotes, so it's all good?), this book is fascinating, learned, and well-argued. Though I have been to seminary--I admit I never lea...more

Mud, Sweat, and Gears by Joe Kurmaskie

Much of the reason why I liked this book is that it reminded me of my own long cycling trip: except mine was to raise awareness and funds for the fight against human trafficking (check out my book: 27 Million Revolutions for 27 Million Slaves). While...more

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell

A number of reviews of this book said that it's even better than Mitchell's other works. I have to disagree, and do so whole-heartedly. While Thousand Autumns does contain much of what readers of Mitchell will have come to know and love--a story set...more

These are indeed masterpieces. "Two Hussars" and "The Kreutzer Sonata," aside from the more famous, "Death of Ivan Ilyich," are the best stories in the collection, in my opinion. And my opinion counts for everything. "The Kreutzer Sonata" in particul...more

Based on what the editors say in the introduction and the general format of the book, there should be a sequel to this book coming out soon. I sure hope there is, because this collection of very short historical articles is quite good.

The Essential Catholic Catechism by Alan Schreck

This book deserves more than a three star rating. Unfortunately I can't give it more than three stars because of the nature of the book: by nature a catechism is rather boring. Oh well.

Schreck has done an excellent job, though, in narrowing down the...more
