Scot, I would be happy to review a book. I have several on hand that are in queue for reading. I could provide a review from something classic (Living Love by Francis de Sales or On Incarnation by Athanasius), or I could do “Tithing” the latest to be released in the Ancient Practices Series (I expect this to arrive in the mail any day.

Scot, I would love to review something by a non-first-world author. Beyond Christendom: Globalization, African Migration and the Transformation of the West by Jehu Hanciles sounds particularly interesting.

Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou
