Current Reading


I have removed the “Current Reading” list from the side bar of The 7 Habitus primarily because I forgot to update it on a regular basis. I think it would make more sense to simply do an occasional post with current and planned reading and, perhaps, a comment or two on whatever books are presently striking my fancy. So, here is the first installment.

Just Finished:

In the Beginning by Alister McGrath, a history of the King James Version of the Bible. More on this in another post.

Current Reading

The Reformation by Owen Chadwick, part of a series on the history of the Church published by Penguin in the early ‘60’s. I found this copy through and its inscription is a bit unusual. Most owners, if they write anything on the fly, usually put their name and possibly the date. This has only a date, in a small hand, at the upper left of the fly leaf – “Aug 6, 1964”. I wonder who owned this one, and why so cryptic an inscription?

A History of Christianity, by Paul Johnson – Although I have only just started this I already have some misgivings; Johnson seems quite ready in this history to attribute less than sincere motives to the Early Church Fathers in their defense of the faith against heresy.

Planned Reading

Faith and Certitude, Fr. Thomas DuBay. I have been distracted by other things and never finished reading this excellent study.

Ascent to the Truth, Thomas Merton. Due to the above mentioned distractions, I also never finished this and must get back to it.

Authenticity, Fr. Thomas DuBay.
