the last few books i read...

the collected tales of solomon kane, by robert e. howard - kane is a demon-hunting puritan...pure awesomeness

an altar in the world, by barbara brown taylor - folk spirituality and wisdom from a phyllis-tickle-like sage...this was a great read

the charismatic theology of st. luke, by roger stronstad - i've been meaning to read this "classic" for a while, as a means of re-connecting with my charismatic upbringing. honestly, there is SO MUCH support in scripture for the spooky stuff i am baffled as to how some people dismiss it...on the other hand, the contemporary variety of spookiness is often far-removed from the biblical model, so i do understand those who are leery of such things

alive for the first time, by david c. needham - Jvo recommended this to me as a primer for christian's not bad, but i'm still unsure as to whether i'll be passing it along to anyone else

blood rites, by jim butcher - this was my final guilty pleasure, the dresden files book's about a wizard in chicago who helps a vampire...what could be a better reprieve from theology than pulp sci-fi?
