Last weekend I was hanging out with a dear friend whose father has a doctorate in Christian Ministry. In their home is an extensive library of evangelical book titles. This excited me to no end. We spent an afternoon giggling and reading to each other from various tomes, and she was kind enough to let me borrow some for my own perusal.
It was hard not to just grab the whole lot (you’d be amazed what people can write with a straight face), but I managed to select 5 titles:
The Right Romance in Marriage by Cathy Rice (with a forward by her husband Dr. Bill Rice. Because Heaven forbid she share an opinion he doesn’t preface.)
Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World by Carolyn McCulley (very excited about this one.)
Why I Believe by Dr. James Kennedy
So, I thought, why not have a 5 week Slutty Book Report project? I’ll introduce a book and talk a little bit about what I expected based on skimming the surface, and then I’ll follow up with a full scathing book review. Now, admittedly, these reports will be mostly tongue in cheek: I fully expect to disagree with these authors. All of them are very fundamentally opposed to my beliefs, politics and ethics. However, I’m not such a persnickety critic that I’d rule out being able to learn something, or even be surprised. Who knows! Wonders never cease.
To shake things up a little bit, I’m going to leave the selection of which book I read each week up to my readers. This’ll keep things interesting, and I enjoy the feedback. I’ve linked the titles of the books to their correlating Amazon descriptions so you can check them out yourselves.
I look forward to your comments and thoughts on the books! If you have anything specific you’d like me to look for during the imbibing of evangelical knowledge, feel free to ask as well.
