Returned yesterday evening from a great trip to Austin. Lots of good things about that trip. One of them was collecting book titles that came up during conversations. I tried to write them down, and here's my list:
Fehrenback, Lone Star: a History of Texas and Texans
De Vaca, The Narrative of Cabeza de Vaca
Bell, Love Wins: a Book about Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Everyone Who Ever Lived
Wright, Paul for Everyone; The Prison Letters: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossions, Philemon
Lehman, Nine Years Among the Indians, 1870-1879: the Story and Life of the Captivity and Life of a Texan Among the Indians
Eckert, The Frontiersmen.
Kirkegaard, Training in Christianity
Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry
Merton, Opening the Bible
And speaking of the Bible, I had along with me Wright's The Last Word: Scripture and the Authority of God - Getting Beyond the Bible Wars. What a refreshing book to read amidst the disintegration of the PC(USA).
