As I mentioned in my previous post, it is time for me to read some more. I love my friends, and I know they love me, just look at the wonderful diversity of books I received!
All of these came from friends that read my blog and comment sometimes. Does God Believe in Atheists is actually on loan, not for keeps. The notes added in that picture are my uninformed tongue-in-cheek satirical summary of my initial impression of the standpoints of the authors. Don’t take those notes too seriously. I have not yet read any books by any of these authors, though I have started on one of Rob Bell’s books and seen him “live” on multiple occasions.
Below the fold is the list of books and my comments, for those that cannot make out the photo above, and do not want to download a higher resolution version.
- Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion – Atheists say God does not exist
- John Blanchard, Does God Believe in Atheists – God says atheists do not exist
- Rob Bell, Sex God – Let’s define “God” as something that DOES exist, rather than something that DOES NOT
- Paul Kurtz, Embracing the Power of Humanism – So what is this “Humanism” thing then?
Another book I received, that does not fall directly into the main book theme, is Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art. As I understand it, this book was given to me more for the purpose of critical evaluation than for direct personal enrichment. Hehe, I love my friends. (And I wish we had more words for different kinds of “love”. Like the Greeks do, for example.)
You might notice I recently had some fun tearing holes in pages from thesis drafts, then tackling them with spray paint. My flickr account has more photos of the fun I had.
