In addition to posting reviews of Christian books, it is my intent to post a review or response of every book that I read for the first time henceforth. As I noted in my launch post, I think it will be helpful to me in processing the contents of the books I read.
One consequence of this will be my reviewing a great number of books that are not explicitly Christian. I think these may actually prove to be the more interesting reviews and responses in some ways, as they will afford an opportunity to think more critically and synthetically about the world. It is an unfortunate reality that most (modern) Christian books are not nearly as penetratingly engaging with the world as they should be, and so I often find that the books that challenge me most to think Christianly about the world are, while not usually opposed to Christianity, also often rather disinterested in it.
In any case, I look forward to seeing what I learn from reviewing non-theological books from an explicitly (and, hopefully, robustly) theological framework. I expect the first such volume I respond to to be Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat, which I hope to finish within the next week or so.
