Review of May's book pile
Finished in May:
The Abolition of Man
, CS Lewis - comprised of three essays from a series of talks he gave. This is a classic Christian book looking at modern culture from a Chrisitan perspective: ethics, science, the nature of man. This is a book I've had on my "to be read" list for some time, but finally made a point of picking it up when it was listed as a "must-read" on the CiRCE reading list for this year's conference.
The Egg and I
, Betty MacDonald - Quirky people, sweet stories, vivid descriptions from a 1940s chicken ranch in the American Northwest. Ever heard of Ma and Pa Kettle? This is the book where they had their beginning in American pop culture.
Started in May and still reading:
Anglican Spirit Michael Ramsey
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer Mark Twain
Started in May, but gave up on:
The Religious Potential of the Child Sofia Cavaletti
I have another less philosophical book by Cavaletti that I'm going to try later this summer. Some excellent thoughts about children's approach to religion, but sometimes a bit tedious in its romaticism.
