On the bedside table: I just started God's Double Agent: The True Story of a Chinese Christian's Fight for Freedom by Bob Fu (with Nancy French). I'm 100 pages in, and so far I recommend it as a well-written memoir that takes place within a historical and spiritual context all Americans should try to understand. I also finished and loved Here if You Need Me by Kate Braestrup. I was particularly interested in and challenged by her views as a Unitarian Universalist Christian (from my other UU friends, I don't think all UU people would call themselves Christians, but Braestrup would). Beautiful writing, insightful thinking about Scripture and the nature of humanity and good and evil and God's role in it all, and a wonderful story to boot. I just started listening to Kathleen Norris' Acedia and Me: a Marriage, Monks, and a Writer's Life. I suspect I will be loving this one too.
