Summer Reading List 2011
This summer, as with all summers I am setting out to read a goodly amount. This will, however, have to fit around my greater research projects for the summer. Here is the short list:
1) Mere Christianity
A re-read, but no less excited about it.
2) The First World War – John Keegan
I am already about 80 pages into this one and like it a lot. I never really learned or paid much attention to classes over the First World War. So reading this book has really been blowing my mind.
3) The Sound and the Fury – William Faulkner
A friend of mine is taking a Faulkner class this summer at Harding and we’ve decided to read that together.
4) Theology of Liberation – Gustavo Gutierrez
I am reading the 15th anniversary edition, which means I am reading the extended 15th anniversary edition introduction. I think the actual book is only about 100 pages, but this introduction has got to tack on another 40. So far so good.
5) Reviving the Ancient Faith – Richard Hughes
A good history of the Churches of Christ in America. I used it a lot in my research this semester and am really excited to get back into it.
