A Great Book

I think I had queried whether any readers of this blog had read this book somewhere down below and no one responded in the affirmative. So now I've read it or more accurately I'm reading it. I'm about half-way through it and it is absolutely the best book I've read in some time of this ilk. Along with Stalking the Divine by Kristin Ohlson (see below) I'm feeling pretty blessed right now and I must also mention my friend Alexander Schmemann (see my archives).

The Strangest Way: Walking the Christian Path is an excellent critique of our culture and what we who live it in need to do in order to follow Jesus in it. He draws on works of literature from Dante to Flannery O'Connor to flesh out his points. Highly, highly recommended!
