Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture - Michael Frost Frost has quite a few thought provoking insights in here. I don't agree with him in every area and there were several places that I felt he was being down right snobby ("If you are a REAL exile you wont..."). I, for one, don't see myself ever pulling out of a traditional church setting, but I don't think that should disqualify me as a thinkers that is trying to see himself as an alien in a strange land (Hebrews 12). Still he offers some interesting peeks into Scripture and calls the Western Church to think outside the box. He does offer practical advice or at least tangible solutions for what he sees as problems.
