  6. American Jesus: How the Son of God Became a National Icon (Stephen Prothero)

    Leave a Comment

    Several years ago I taught a course entitled “What a Trend We Have in Jesus” with this as one of the textbooks.  I will be revisiting some of the thoughts from that course here at CIM in the next month or two and decided to re-read the textbooks from the course. In this year of a carnival election process (minus the fun implied by the word ‘carnival’) it seems appropriate to revisit Prothero’s work.  In the introduction he says that “to hold Jesus up to the mirror of American culture is to conduct a Rorshach test of ever changing national sensibilities. What Americans have seen in him has usually been an expression of their own hopes and fears”.

  7. Fences and Windows (Naomi Klein)

    Leave a Comment

    Subtitled “Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Globalization Debate”, this book is a compilation of Klein’s articles and speeches on issues raised in her previous work No Logo – everything from NAFTA to Monsanto to the corrosive effects of economic fundamentalism.  This is not comfortable reading but it is essential we hear these arguments.

    (Please note: The services in June and July will be at the regular time of 10:30 am. The August services will be in the evening at 7 pm).

    We are talking about communication, talking about language… not the same thing.                                      It’s about inspiration… (Professor Maggie Walsh, Buffy the Vampire Slayer 4.10)
