I have been looking at a massive biography on the life and time of the poet Richard Brautigan titled, "Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan" by William Hjortsberg (852 pages). I was reading this very interesting biography this year, but got side tracked and never finished it. I am only on page 179 in this biography. It is one of the best biographies I have read on the poetry scene in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60's and 70's- very exhaustive.
I do not remember why I came down here in the first place. Now I remember why I came down here- I was thinking of quoting from a book I was reading earlier this evening titled, "Theology As Discipleship" by Keith L. Johnson. But now I am not in the mood to quote or really write anything. I am burnt out I suppose. I feel slightly sick to my stomach tonight.
I recommend these books for morning devotions-
"Introducing Theological Interpretation Of Scripture: Recovering a Christian Practice" by Daniel J. Treier
"Reading Scripture with the Church: Toward A Hermeneutic For Theological Interpretation" essays by A. K. M. Adam, Stephen E. Fowl, Kevin J. Vanhoozer, and Francis Watson
"The Character of Theology: An Introduction To Its Nature, Task, and Purpose" by John R. Franke
I will close to feel sick. I am over tired and stressed out. In the end does it really matter how many books I consume in one year.
