Current Reading

  • Mary Oliver: Blue Horses: Poems

    Mary Oliver: Blue Horses: Poems
    With this latest volume of poetry, Mary Oliver, one of my favorite poets, may have run out of steam. The nature images are there, the references to God, the embrace of mystery, and yet these poems are often too slight, with phrases too shorn of image. Instead, Read Oliver's wonderful "Thirst."

  • Leonard Hjalmarson: No Home Like Place: A Christian Theology of Place

    Leonard Hjalmarson: No Home Like Place: A Christian Theology of Place
    Though a bit academic at times, and therefore challenging for lugs like me, this book is an important argument for why "place" matters to Christians, indeed why the placelessness of our theologies is unbiblical. It's about time.

  • Debbie Blue: Consider the Birds: A Provocative Guide to Birds of the Bible

    Debbie Blue: Consider the Birds: A Provocative Guide to Birds of the Bible
    I'm not a birder, but I do enjoy the lessons nature teaches about God. This book, beautifully written, considers what the birds of the Bible reveal to us. It may just matter that particular birds were chosen to be recorded in Scripture for what they may signify or teach.

Current Listening

  • Kate Campbell -

    Kate Campbell: Moonpie Dreams
    I'm traveling through Mississippi and Alabama, and so it seems right to listen to Kate, who is like a musical Flannery O'Connor. I met her twice, enjoyed her rendition of Brian Wilson's "Add Some Music to Your day," on the Making God Smile Tribute, heard her sing it, had lunch with her, and have been a fan all along.

  • Pierce Pettis -

    Pierce Pettis: Chase the Buffalo
    I love this Mark Heard produced album by one of my favorite singer-songwriters, and is apropos given my current trip along the Natchez Trace (as the album bears a song by that name.). It also has the wonderful Heard-penned "Nod Over Coffee."
