Alright theoblogosphere, I’ve got a little challenge of my own (however it is not nearly as demanding as Halden’s recent one). I’m looking at taking a few classes here at school over the summer – primarily reading classes, and I get to pick the topics. Well, I’m going to address torture for my social ethics MA thesis (or at least I’m planning on it right now and it might look a little something like this: I. Why American Christianity is inclined to accept torture; II. Critique American Christianity; and III. Produce a better theology which A. Fills the holes in the church and B. Talks about what a healthy church can do to respond). With that in mind I’m hoping to use one of these reading classes to help me get a leg up on research and forming a better outline. So, does anyone have any good books to recommend other than William Cavanaugh’s Torture and Eucharist for me to read this summer?
