The Monstrosity of Christ | Love Wins | What is God?

The Monstrosity of Christ | Love Wins | What is God?

I was at the bookstore this evening, strolling around by myself.  It was quite nice.  I miss it.   I strolled over to the Philosophy section, then the Religion section, looking for three specific books.  I found them and sat down to read.  I dug into one, glanced through another, and read a couple pages of the introduction of the third.  I wanted to impulsively buy all three, which I’ve been known to do, but I decided not to.  Reading these three books tonight helped further my motivation for a PhD.  It’s interesting because none of them had anything to do with Psychology, but mostly philosophy and religion.  But see, what I think I want to do is find a way to bring a more spiritually humane aspect to psychotherapy and how we try and understand human beings psychologically.  I certainly wouldn’t be the first to do this but there is obviously still study and discussion to be had.

Anyway, I wanted to share these three books here, and hopefully they will soon be in the sidebar as books I am currently reading.

1. The Monstrosity of Christ edited by Creston Davis | a discussion between atheist philosopher Slavoj Zizek and theologian John Milbank.

The Monstrosity of Christ: Paradox or Dialectic? (Short Circuits)

2. Love Wins by Rob Bell | a book asking questions and offering responses to the question of heaven and hell “and the fate of everyone who ever lived.”

Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

3. What is God? by Jacob Needleman |  sort of a personal memoir of Needleman’s journey as a philosopher into the divine.  I have really grown to enjoy this author’s prose, thought process, and playful vulnerability.
