As some of you may know, I am currently teaching English in Cairo. Before I left I compiled a stack of books that I would take along including several shorter reads specifically for Lent. My hope is to get into the following books more deeply and that their lack of length will aid me in delving into some depth I have not previously had time for. My reading list so far includes (but is not limited to, depending on what else I can find in Cairo):
Rowan Williams, Resurrection
John Howard Yoder, Body Politics
Stanley Hauerwas, Cross-Shattered Christ
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
Romand Coles, “The Wild Patience of John Howard Yoder: “Outsiders” and the “Otherness of the Church” in The New Yoder, Ed. by Peter Dula and Chris K. Huebner
The Bible, the Gospel of John, Acts
What are others preparing to read? Or reading during Lent? Or other reading suggestions for Lent?
