This is interesting, although it would be nice to know why he chose the books! As writers, can’t they write something?
When inviting writers to participate in this series, we requested that if possible they include a brief rationale with their titles, and many of the lists that we have received so far do include some degree of explanation (watch for those in coming weeks).
What strikes me about this list: Some good reading, but too contemporary. I’d like to think that someone older than Tolstoy has something of value for Claiborne.
Wow, definitely not surprised by some of these titles. Being familiar with Shane’s work, I could have guess Bonhoeffer, Thurman, Day, but it is refreshing to see him site Berry, Manning, and Foster as well.
is there a way to format it so all the books are on the same page?
