Q & R: What Are You Reading Right Now?

Here's the Q:
What are you reading right now?
Here's the R:
I'm constantly reading unpublished manuscripts of new and emerging authors. (BTW - I'm sorry to say that I can't accept any more manuscripts this year due to all my other commitments.) Rather than comment on any of them now, I'll wait until they're published.

I just finished Occupy Religion: Theology of the Multitude by Joerg Rieger and Kwok Pui-lan. This is a truly worthwhile and important read, especially for those of us who have been involved with - or interested in - the Occupy movement. (It's the third book by Joerg Rieger I've read in the last year or so, along with Christ & Empire and No Rising Tide.)

And just before that, I finished re-reading Anthony Bartlett's Virtually Christian, which explores the intersection of the work of Rene Girard with the Christian message. It's a rewarding read and especially valuable for the growing number of people who are discovering Girard's work.

I've just started Peter Block's Community: The Structure of Belonging.

I've got a long plane flight coming up (Australia) and hope to choose a good novel for the trip. I'm open to suggestions over on my facebook page ... (the real one, not one of the fake ones).
