Finally Graduated.

Finishing an undergraduate degree is an accomplishment, but with the excitement of several years of school forthcoming it is going to be nice to have a bit of a break between semesters. The college experience really was complete with all of the ornate complexities of faith, doubt, love, pain, friends, and, well, every good story has antagonists, right? I was hoping to write immediately, but a little vacation has been nice. Finished reading Umberto Eco’s Mysterious Flame and enjoyed it (although, I expected a bit more).

Over the course of the next several weeks and months I am looking forward to studying various topics that I have not been able to delve into during my courses, but I think on a more personal level I am quite intrigued by questions of friendship, forgiveness, and memory. These three topics have come up for me a lot and I have not been able to think about them or study them as much as I would like . . . I am planning on reading (or rereading) Miroslav Volf, Jurgen Moltmann, F. LeRon Shults, L. Gregory Jones, Sam Wells, Paul Ricoeur, Aristotle, etc. If you have any authors or (specific) books on these topics that you think are helpful, please, send them my way — I am more than willing to look into them.

This is a link to the preface and introduction to Philip Goodchild’s Theology of Money at An und fur sich: http://itself.wordpress.com/2009/12/01/theology-of-money-preface-to-the-us-edition-and-introduction/
