I haven’t posted in weeks and I feel like this warrants an explanation. Have I stopped reading? No. In fact, I am reading as much as I have ever read, but the classics that I am currently reading are not ones I necessarily want to review on this blog. Some years ago, I had a blog dedicated to Christian theological works, but for more reasons than one I abandoned it. I have strongly considered starting a new blog next year that is solely dedicated to fiction and non-fiction works revolving around Christology, Ecclesiology, and Ecumenism. I would still have this blog which would (mostly) deal with other kinds of classics. I started re-reading Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard a few weeks ago and that led me down a different reading path that I expected to be on this month. For those of you who are interested, below is a list of books I am currently reading:
Practice in Christianity by Anti-Climacus (a pseudonym of Søren Kierkegaard)
I Believe in the Holy Spirit, Vol II by Yves Congar (a book by a great Catholic ecumenist of the 20th century)
Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Biography by Eberhard Bethge (I will review this one because I think that due to the scope of this book it probably will appeal to non-Christians as well)
Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (which I finished last week and loved)
And for this blog, I started re-reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens which I look forward to reviewing. I think it was his best work.
I have many many interests but I am not confused. I “officially” study insects but clearly that’s not all I do. I never want blogging to restrict what I read, but I also want my posts to reflect the type of blog I’m running.
Anyway, I hope to post a review sometime next week for Hard Times by Charles Dickens.
