Summer Reading and Escapes: Dr. Sarah Ruble Posted on August 6th, 2020 by

Rounding out our first week in August, here’s our second entry, from Dr. Sarah Ruble.

This summer, I’m reading some U.S. religious history and some theology. I’ve just finished Kristin Du Mez’s Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation (a great read if you want to understand why so many white evangelicals support President Trump) and am starting David Hollinger’s Protestants Abroad: How Missionaries Tried to Change the World but Changed America.

I’m also reading one of my favorite theologians, David Bentley Hart. He has a new collection of essays, Theological Territories, that I am enjoying. I am also slowly working through one of his early works, a very dense and technical exploration of the relationship between God’s infinity, beauty, and peace, The Beauty of the Infinite
