10 January 2002

For Christmas I received a number of (mostly academic) books that I'm looking forward to reading (and a couple I've already finished). They include (in no particular order):
  • The Holy Preaching: The Sacramentality of the Word in the Liturgical Assembly, by Paul Janowiak (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 2000)

  • Radical Orthodoxy? A Catholic Enquiry, edited by Laurence Paul Hemming (Aldershot, UK: Ashgate, 2000)

  • The Postmodern God: A Theological Reader, edited by Graham Ward (Oxford: Blackwell, 1997)

  • Images of America: Manayunk, by Thom Nickels (Charleston, SC: Arcadia, 2001)

  • Nihilism Before Nietzsche, by Michael Allen Gillespie (Chicago: U of Chicago Press, 1995)

  • Ministry and Spirituality: Creative Ministry, The Wounded Healer, and Reaching Out (three books in one volume), by Henri J.M. Nouwen (New York: Continuum, 2000)
I'll keep you posted on any gems.
