Reading


I've got several books on the go [or have just finished]... as is often the case, a somewhat eclectic collection:

Douglas Coupland, Generation A, 2009.
This is an interesting read about story in this generation.



Antony Flint, Wresting with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York's Master Builder and Transformed the American City, 2009.
I've read some of Jane Jacob's work, this is an interesting read about her battles in NY.




Ron Martoia, Transformational Architecture:
Reshaping Our Lives as Narrati
ve, 2008.
Ron is always good in helping us think through how we communicate the gospel in our society.




Mark Kingwell, Concrete Reveries: Consciousness and the City, 2008.
Another book on the city.






Bart D. Ehrman, Jesus Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden
Contradictions in the Bible (and Why We Don't Know About Them),
2009.

Do you own the Coupland? Please say yes. Because I NEED to read it. Yes, Doug is a need.

Actually all the books except for Transformational Architecture are out of the public library - if you can read quickly, I have the books out until December [the library will be closed for a few weeks as it relocates to a temporary location as the old library is torn down & a new one built]
