Q & R: What are you reading?

Here’s the Q:
What are you reading these days?
Here’s the R:
I just finished reading two books that I really enjoyed and believe others will enjoy too.
1. Subversive Meals is a book about the original meaning of the eucharist. It is fascinating, well-researched, and yet accessible. It’s an example of what good yet readable religious scholarship looks like. The subject, the eucharist, is tremendously important … and you’ll feel so even more strongly after reading this important book. R. Alan Street deserves your attention in this valuable contribution to ecclesiology, biblical scholarship, and practical ministry.
2. Culture Moves (Thomas Rochon) explores how cultures change – through critical communities and movements, through the formation of identity and solidarity. Obviously, for my work, this has been an essential book, joining Greg Leffel’s Faith Seeking Action as a primer on social movement theory.
I’m also reading (belatedly) Garrison Keillor’s Life Among the Lutherans. A delight. For fans of Prairie Home Companion, I’ll just say two words: pontoon boat.
