I finally sat down and read this cover to cover. I've read chapters in it off an on over the years, but never worked through the whole thing. This is vintage Newbigin, and while there are things to take issue with throughout the book, what he does we ...more

The Briarpatch Gospel by Shayne Wheeler
Rate this book
Clear rating
Shayne Wheeler is a friend of mine, but that's not (entirely!) why I gave this book 5 stars. I gave it 5 stars because I received it on a Friday afternoon and was finished by Saturday night. I'm sad to be done. Shayne is very transparent and vulnerab ...more

Jim Holt is a fantastic writer, and this book is a delightful read. Even though some of the scientific matters discussed are way over my head, he somehow made it fun and interesting. Holt is a man obsessed with the question, "Why is there something r ...more

I was expecting more from this one. It wasn't entirely disappointing - Galli is a good writer and knows how to turn a phrase and work a metaphor. But I felt like it was (a) not persuasive to someone who is new to exploring liturgy and (b) not all tha ...more

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

I'm cheating, because I actually haven't finished this book (I'm almost done). But I've read enough. The writing is pretty good and the character development fairly rich. The brokenness of the human condition is well described. BUT...the author faile ...more
