What are you reading?
« on: September 06, 2011, 07:40:50 PM »
I always start a thread like this wherever I go. Right now I'm reading Hans Kung's Is There a God: An Answer for Today. It's over 800 pages and that works out very well because it will take me a while to read which will save me $$$. I'm not even half way done and it's been a month.

This is next up for me if I can borrow a copy...not going to buy it because I only do that with books I plan to save or re-read.

I rarely get rid of books. I just don't like parting with them. I have been rereading sections of theological works and other works that need reinforcement. I don;t have a background in sociology or philosophy so some of the concepts don't come to me immediately.

The price should drop precipitously in a month or two. If you are really interested in it go for it.

I just started a theological tome on the Old Testament. I've been meaning to do this for a while.

Fiction?

Of course.   ;D

You can't really tell from a title.  ;) I've been reading exegetical and theological works lately. For about a year now, I guess. I throw in a history book here and there but that used to be my mainstay. I just got the new history of the SS Dirlewanger Brigade.  :o :o BUt it will have to wait until I'm done with my OT tome.

I'd like to read more reference and biographical pieces of literature.  However Palahniuk is a genius.  Ever seen Fight Club?  He wrote that.  I just finished another book of his, Rant.  It left me scratching my head and it was wonderful.
