Kester Brewin released his latest book Other. It’s only available in the U.K. right now but if you want to pay the Canadian government a lot of fees, you can get it shipped here (I paid more in taxes and fees for The Complex Christ than I did for the book but it was worth it).
I am pretty excited about this book because The Complex Christ forced me to rethink much of how I saw the world, looked at history, and read the Scriptures. While Brewin writes theology, his writing extends my thinking beyond where it has gone before. I rate him up with Thomas Homer-Dixon, Jared Diamond, Malcolm Gladwell, and Steven Johnson as people that have helped constantly reinvent my world view. I can’t wait until my copy gets here (the fees alone should erase Canada’s deficit).
