Recent Reading

I've recently finished reading George Metaxas' Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.  I enjoyed it very much and it is very inspirational.  It is also a reminder of the dark days ahead for this country.  I'll have more to say about it later.

Another recent read is James Shapiro's Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare?  A book about one of the great delusions of academics, which has some surprising and curious parallels to 9/11 Trutherism.

I am currently reading Randal Keynes' Darwin, His Daughter, and Human Evolution.  Written by Charles Darwin's great-great-grandson, it explores the impact of the death from tuberculosis of Darwin's daughter on his willingness to publish his theories about evolution.  Darwin knew that they were going to be devastating to Christianity--and his heartbreak over her death was apparently a crisis of faith for him.
