Book Reviews


Strangers and Scapegoats: Extending God's Welcome to Those on the Margins [a review]

A fascinating, reflective book on the sociological/theological theme of the stranger, how strangers become scapegoats, and what hospitality can look like in a fractured world.

The Race-Wise Family [a review]

A great resource for parents who want to know how to equip their kids to understand and engage in racial justice.

Robot Theology [a review]

An ambitious exploration of the intersection between theology, ethics, AI, psychology, and even slavery.

Upgrade [a review]

An extended, action-packed sci-fi meditation on deep ethical questions about human nature. Highly recommended.

Age of Ash [a review]

A dark, depressing fantasy about thievery, murder, and human sacrifice.

When Did Sin Begin? [a review]

A helpful analysis of and meditation upon the question of evolution and sin.

Project Hail Mary [a review]

An imaginative, whimsical, thrilling extra-solar escape room. A great summer sci-fi read.

The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self [a review]

Interesting historical analysis and reflection on how the self became psychological, but ultimately unpersuasive and unhelpful toward cultivating common ground.

The Making of Biblical Womanhood [a review]

A painful, searing, yet imperfect and uneven case against Complementarianism. Though not all her arguments persuade, hers is still a powerful word to the Complementarian church.
