A couple people have asked when I was going to post again...many many other people have not asked.
Recently I've been loaded down with extra work to pay the bills, reading books, writing papers that aren't very bloggy (translation: too long) and trying to learn how to live missionally in my community with the new overly full schedule.
But I have plans to post some stuff soon - several things that have had plenty of time to incubate, a few papers that can be whittled down to manageable lengths and some new stuff that is just starting to simmer. For those who are interested, I'd like to provide a list of books I've read over the past few months and a few that I'll be reading over the next couple. Some of these have already had an enormous impact on my thinking. I plan to write a short blurb about each of them (some very short, some more lengthy) The titles on this page will become links to those posts as they become available.
