I’ve been cursing French the past few weeks. I am sure I’ll curse it for a few more, partly because I’m taking a class in French and partly because the class has pushed aside nearly all my reading, much less theology reading (save for The Monstrosity of Christ).
Some of the literary books I am eager to get to after French I’ve known about since undergrad. Two specific ones are A Life of Jesus and Silence by Shusaku Endo. However, I suppose I should make time to finally read Gilead as well. And maybe this summer, I’ll finally get to the Russian novelists — yeah, how’s that for a confession? Perhaps this will be a summer of pure catch up for literature. The rest of the reading list is, of course, an assortment of theology books.
I am curious, what books are you reading this summer? And are there any I should consider that makes your heart three sizes bigger when you read it?
