Many students will groan when I point out these inevitable signs of the times, and an equally inevitable conclusion. August is upon us. Summer is quickly winding down. And this can only mean one thing: school is just around the corner!
I was reminded of this fact yesterday as I sent off my book order for the course I’m teaching at Harvard Divinity School this fall. If you’re looking for some late-summer reading, consider the following titles:
H. Richard Niebuhr, Christ and Culture
John Howard Yoder, The Politics of Jesus
E.J. Dionne Jr., One Electorate Under God?
Susannah Heschel (ed), Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity: Essays
Richard Land, The Divided States of America? What Liberals AND Conservatives are missing in the God-and-country shouting match!
Reza Aslan, No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam
