Reading Lists! Theology , News, and Culture

Reading Lists Theology

We’ve posted a number of thematic reading lists on theology, news, and culture over the last six months.

Here you will find an archive of all these reading lists …
We also have some reading lists that we posted in previous years that we might add here eventually…

“Making a mixtape (or playlist) is the opposite of indifferent. It’s heartfelt, purposeful — often a subtle form of flirtation. … [The playlist] is a way of making yourself known, an interpersonal form of show business, of making news, of replicating sounds and words you find important. It’s like poetry, because poetry is what you can’t say in any other way.”
– David Dark
