Current Reading

  • Marilynne Robinson: Lila: A Novel

    Marilynne Robinson: Lila: A Novel
    More from the author of Gilead, who doesn't believe in chapters or titles. Disconcerting until you adjust to the flow of things. Robinson"s work hearkens to the novels of place of Wendell Berry.

  • 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.

  • Paul E. Miller: A Loving Life: In a World of Broken Relationships

    Paul E. Miller: A Loving Life: In a World of Broken Relationships
    So how do you love people who are unloveable? I need this as much as I needed Miller's last book, "A Praying Life." He's realistic, and yet hopeful, in his encouragement that we reach out to the unloveable. My wife and I are reading a chapter at a time and discussing.

Current Listening

  • The Kinks -

    The Kinks: Lola Versus Powerman & The Moneygoround, Part One [2 CD][Deluxe Edition]
    This release of the 1970 album also contains the soundtrack to film called "Percy," which, I think got about all the critical acclaim it deserved (scant). But the album contains some classics, like "Lola" and "Apeman", demonstrating that leader Ray Davies misses his era and calling, Vaudeville.

  • Jim Reilley -

    Jim Reilley: Return of Buddy Cruel
    I had forgotten how good this record was! It was, in actuality, the swan song of my Silent Planet Records - pithy, witty, folk-pop with some beautiful lines, great musicians, and pop sensibility. Get it.

  • Jayhawks -

    Jayhawks: Sound of Lies
    Every time I hear this band, I miss them. They were awesome pop-americana, and this recently reissued Gary Louris fronted band (Mark Olsen had left) explores a variety of sonic landscapes --- beautiful yet with harrowing lyrics no doubt influenced by his divorce and his breakup with Olsen.

  • Van Morrison -

    Van Morrison: Astral Weeks
    Stellar. Recorded in an amazing 48 hours with an all-star jazz backing bank, this album is classic Morrison, soulful, celtic, R&B, Jazz. Amazing.

  • Van Morrison -

    Van Morrison: Moondance Expanded Edition (2 CD)
    I always end up cycling back around to this classic record. I listened to Morrison the most while I was in grad school. "Into the Mystic." "Crazy Love." it seemed to settle me.
