As a preacher's kid, it's only appropriate that I spend a lot of time questioning religion and faith and generally being a black sheep. It's part of my role as a PK to rebel :) I love reading about all religions, both fiction and nonfiction, so I'm really excited about this challenge in 2010 hosted by Bibliofreak.
The Challenge will run from Jan 1st 2010 to Dec 31st 2010. There are four categories to the Challenge. I chose The Unshepherded Path, which means I can read about any damn religion I want to, fiction or nonfiction. I'm going to say 5 books, although this path has no specific number.
Here are my tentative picks. I'll link up reviews as I write them.
- Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman (nonfic)
- The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs (nonfic)
- Charles and Emma: The Darwin's Leap of Faith by Deborah Heiligman (nonfic)
- Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore (fic)
- People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks (fic)
- America's Prophet by Bruce Feiler (nonfic)
