The Reenchantment of Nature: The Denial of Religio&hellip by Alister McGrath
4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it., May 13 2004
This was a good book for me. I am not the most green conscious person, but I feel I should be. I mistrust environmentalists because a lot of them got some funky spiritual ideas. Probably what this book does best is defend Christianity against the charge that it is to blame for our coming enviormental crisis. McGrath without excusing Christians, does not scapegoat Christianity as being a philisophical underpinning which enables Western people to rape nature. No he has other ideas about where we get those Ideas. But I wouldn't want to spoil it.
Power Failure: Christianity in the Culture of Tech&hellip by Albert Borgmann
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This is the first book I read that really made me aware of how technology conspires against the gospel in that it promises something totally different. Borgmann is not anti-technological, but he is evaluative of his use of technology (and he makes a good case for being that way). He also outlines ways that we can approach life beyond the technolgical millieu's commodifcation of it. A little heady in places, but really makes you think!!
The Book Of The Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin
The Book Of The Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin
5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, April 28 2004
If like me, you've thought Christian fiction really sucks, you need to discover Walter Wangerin (anong others). This is good thoughtful prose by anyone's standards. It is the antithesis of anything else you might find in the Christian fiction section. It is actually good. unlike a series of novels on the apocalypse that shall remain nameless.
