I hope to offer a reflection on Andy Crouch’s Playing God on Monday. For now, I will simply say that if you are interested in culture, sociology, and the Christian story, this book is for you. And in case I haven’t been clear about it already, Kate Braestrup’s Here if You Need Me is amazing. It’s a memoir about her time as a chaplain for the Maine game wardens. Beautifully written, thoughtful, accessible, challenging… I highly recommend it.
