The Taser's Edge


Tuesday Reading Roundup

1. I Married You by Walter Trobisch–Walter goes to Africa (yes, this is a true story) to give a series of marriage lectures at a church to which he has been invited.  Along the way he gets drawn into a number of different stories of local relationships, and then even has to deal with problems in his own marriage.  Decent.  Okay, I didn’t really finish it.

2. Many Waters by Madeleine L’Engle–The fourth book in the Wrinkle in Time series, although it takes place third.  Definitely the weakest of the four, although I think I would have enjoyed it more had it not been connected to those other marvelous works.

3. Christians Among the Virtues by Stanley Hauerwas and Charles R. Pinches–At some point in this semester, I seem to have bought into the Hauerwas project.  Habituation as sanctification, etc.  It really was not a conscious thing at all.

4. Improvisation: The Drama of Christian Ethics by Sam Wells–The final book for Hauerwas’ Virtue, Happiness, and the Life of Friendship course, as this is the final week of that class.  I think I’ll get through it, although I remember very little of the first couple chapters.
