Library Update

I was lucky enough to receive some books as gifts for Christmas. Off the top of my head:

  • Hopes and Prospects by Noam Chomsky
  • Hannah's Child by Stanley Hauerwas
  • A Place on Earth by Wendell Berry
  • Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
  • The Politics of Jesus by John Howard Yoder

I've finished the new Chomsky, and I'm currently reading Hannah's Child. Yes, I know that the Politics of Jesus and Yoder are ontologically prior to Hauerwas. I am tempted to say by reading the first pages of Hauerwas' memoir that he and I shared some proclivities within the faith. I am sure that everyone who reads this book thinks that. It's probably a bit self-flattering, or at the least deprecating to Hauerwas.
