January Picks — Reading Resolutions Continued

Ed Resolves to Read: Fabricating Jesus by Craig Evans

fabricating

Ed asks: “Why do people make things up about Jesus, just like the staff at Crux make up my remarks about my monthly picks? I plan to read this book by Craig Evans to find out the answer to at least one of these questions.”

Dr. Heather Resolves to Read: A Fine-Tuned Universe by Alister McGrath (ooo, a science + theology book — crazy)

Dr. Heather ponders: “This book is based on McGrath’s Gifford lectures. I’ve been meaning to read it for a few years. As this is the year I also resolve to read more non-fiction, it makes sense to read it now!”

Carolyn Resolves to Read: Noli Me Tangere by Jean-Luc Nancy (ooo, philosophy AND a Latin title, even crazier!!)

Carolyn thinks: “This little volume promises to be a gem. It contains three essays by one of the foremost philosophers of our day, Jean-Luc Nancy. The first addresses the resurrection, the second addresses Mary Magdalene, and the third, “In Heaven and On Earth,” is a transcription of a talk Nancy gave to a group of children between 6 and 12 years old (I can’t wait to see how he does this!!). This is a slim book (albeit dense, at times), so there is no reason why I shouldn’t be able to fulfill my resolution to read this book in 2015. And it certainly looks like it will be a rewarding enterprise.”

Connor Resolves to Read: The Way of Humility by Pope Francis
(Humility! Let’s see how this goes then.)

Connor promises: “Really! I’m going to read this book.”
