The Humanity of God by Karl Barth
Rate this book
Clear rating
Read this on the recommendation of a friend ... who happens to be a former seminary professor. 99% of this went way, way over my head. It's dense. The book is actually three essays transcribed from lectures Barth gave in the 50s. Man, it's a lot.

An absolutely lovely little book detailing 131 interesting and sometimes absurd ways to notice more things. Exercises like coming up with a script for random video footage you're watching, interviewing an inanimate object, calculating the exact ...more

What It Means to Be a Democrat by George S. McGovern
Rate this book
Clear rating
So, this is a tough book to evaluate. It's a...polemic? ...manifesto? written by George McGovern toward the end of his life. Each chapter discusses an area of national concern (wars, education hunger, addiction, etc.), and McGovern explains his ...more

Draft No. 4 by John McPhee
Rate this book
Clear rating
You need to understand that this isn't a book about the process of writing (as the title would suggest). This is really a meandering memoir of a particular writer's life. I keep looking for some constructive instructional value, but it's buried ...more

Letters from a Skeptic by Gregory A. Boyd
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a re-read from 25 years ago. It should probably go down as one of the great "new apologetics."

Greg Boyd was a seminary professor, and his father was agnostic. The book is a series of letters they exchanged about faith over three years. The

Rate this book
Clear rating
Wonderfully unique book written by a father and son, both of whom were Christian pastors and leaders. The son lost his faith and became a secular humanist, and "humanist chaplain." This book was written a few years later by both of them, which ...more

The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron
Rate this book
Clear rating
The value of this book depends on how much faith you place in the Enneagram, an ancient method of categorizing personalities into nine different types.

The book is wonderfully well-written, but it suffers from two core problems. First, since we're all

Wonderful book about the influence of the Christian church in the years since the death of Jesus, up until current times. Covers art, charity, education, politics, etc. Full-color illustrated, and easy to digest. Regardless of your faith situation, ...more

Impossible to Ignore by Carmen Simon
Rate this book
Clear rating
If you want to know all the secrets that advertisers or marketers (or campaign managers) use to make you remember stuff, this is your book. It's dense, and should probably be read in a group, put to use, and consulted multiple times. There's just a ...more

Practical Recommender Systems by Kim Falk
Rate this book
Clear rating
Not rating this one, because I wasn't really the right audience for it. I wanted an introduction to recommender system theory, and what I got was ... a lot of math. This is a programming manual, with code samples in Python.

There is some theory here,
