I also started another book this week: The Peaceable Kingdom: A Primer In Christian Ethics. I’ve had the book for a while and have wanted to read something by Hauerwas, who intrigues me even though I’ve never read anything of his. I got introduced to him via quotes I read on blogs and these videos of his lectures.
I know lots of people say to only read one book at a time, but I’ve found it helpful to read at least two books at once. It’s interesting to me to see the connections between books that you read. It seems like my brain is constantly drawing out the implications of one book in light of the other. It’s a good interdisciplinary exercise.
Hopefully I can post my thoughts on the book when I’m done.
