  1. This list is incredible… and intimidating :)

  2. Now, I’m not claiming I’ve read more; shit, I can’t even read all the way through your list! But, no Girard or Chesterton–two authors that have made a big dent in me. Any play with these guys? I’d especially like to hear some intelligent commentary on Girard’s anthropology, given your voluminous scholarship.

    Keep up the work–in the mind and the street. Peace, Chris Haw from Camden, NJ

  3. Would love to hear your thoughts on Tim Keller.
