Turing test results continue tomorrow, and, in the meantime, I’ve got links if you want to read like me or screw up like Peter.
Ethika Politika has a summer reading recommendations feature running, and I’ve contributed the five books I’d recommend from my reading so far this year. Includes theology, data visualization, autopsies and this:
Helen MacDonald. H is for Hawk. Training a goshawk is the strangest approach to grief I’ve ever encountered. I kept reading excerpts from this memoir to my mother while we were traveling together until she got her own copy and started reading passages back at me.
Last week, I gave a talk on doing a good job praying badly (adapted from the final chapter of my book – Arriving at Amen: Seven Catholic Prayers that Even I Can Offer) and the audio is now up! (It’s right near the bottom of the page).
I had a great time (especially with the Q&A) and I’m looking forward to attending some of the other rooftop Theology on Taps happening this summer.
