Friday Finds on Sunday

January 23, 2011

So I know its Sunday and not Friday, but I’m not sure what to call a “find” post that is on Sunday. Anywho, I grabbed two books today while I was working at the bookstore and I’m really excited to get started on them:

Beware of God by Shalom Auslander

From Amazon:

This first short story collection is approachable and entertaining on many levels, because it includes a strange and either funny or disturbing cast of characters, all of whom explore, in one way or another, their connection to the universe and the Almighty. Auslander was raised as an Orthodox Jew in New York.

Letter to a  Christian Nation by Sam Harris

From Wikipedia:

Written in response to feedback Harris received following the publication of his first book The End of Faith. This book is written in the form of an open letter to a Christian in the United States. Harris states that his aim is “to demolish the intellectual and moral pretensions of Christianity in its most committed forms.”
