Black Theology & Black Power by James H. Cone
Black Theology & Black Power

Lindsey, April 4, 2007

As a white reader, this is a challenging read, but it is well worth it. This is Cone's first work that defined Black Theology, and its strong message to the church is one that is still relevant today in some ways.

Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman
Jesus and the Disinherited

Lindsey, April 4, 2007

This is a phenomenal read! The last chapter on love, in particular, resonates with me. We all - black and white - have a lot to learn from his wisdom.

How to Read a French Fry: And Other Stories of Intriguing Kitchen Science by Russ Parsons
How to Read a French Fry: And Other Stories of Intriguing Kitchen Science

Lindsey, September 25, 2006

Parsons presents a very fun look at food science and why it matters. The recipies are a great way to explore the applications, but do take up a sizeable amount of the book. Overall a fun read and great book to have on hand in the kitchen, but rather simplified when it comes to real science (which could be a good or bad thing, depending on what one is looking for).
