Here’s the books I’m reading this weekend, what are you reading?
I started Christopher Hitchens book years ago, but I never finished it. So this weekend I’m starting with his little ditty “God is not great”, throwing in a little ancient Greek democracy, biography of Castro, a book that compares and contrasts Marx with Kant, and finishing the weekend up with “Patience with God” by Frank Schaeffer.
I’m always annoyed when people get locked into reading only one kind of genre;
—) Fundamentalist Christians tend to only read books by Fundamental Christians
—) Atheists tend to only read books by atheists
—) Creationists tend to only read books by creationists
—) Conservatives tend to only read books by conservatives
—) Liberals tend to only read books by liberals
This way of reading tends to isolate our mind; it traps us into one dimensional modes of thinking. I suspect people have narrow reading habits because it reinforces their belief that they are “right about everything” . However, the reality of the situation is that none of us are “right about everything”.
So what are you reading?
I’m going to get back to my books and my cup of coffee,
