Who plans to read the book and join the discussion?I ordered both of this quarter's books and they arrived today. I'll probably end up reading both of them, though work is keeping me busy.[My apologies for copying this post from the Religious Expression thread.]

I'll be reading and discussing both books, but I'm considering scheduling some book chats for those of us with limited time for long forum posts.

I just started reading Religious Expression last night and am pleasantly surprised that it is quite readable. My fear was that it would be nothing but legal terms and dates and statistics, but it reads like a real book and is well written.

See, Chris, you just gotta trust me. I won't lead y'all astray. I knew with the all the difficult science texts you guys read, you'd have no problem navigating through this book.BTW, the forum looks great with all the books displayed. Thanks for adding our informal McCarthy discussion to the mix too. Edited by: irishrosem at: 4/13/07 2:11 pm
