Summer Reading

I've been slightly firehosed with reading so far this year.  For my summer school reading, I've read a rather heady Philosophy for Understanding Theology, by Diogenes Allen and Eric Springfield.  Christian Philosophy: A Systematic and Narrative Introduction by Craig G. Bartholomew and Michael W. Gohen.   An enthusiastically postmodern Philosophy and Theology by John D. Caputo.  An Invitation to Analytic Christian Theology by Thomas H. McCall.  Does the Center Hold? An Introduction to Western Philosophy by Donald Palmer.   Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism?: Taking Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault to Church by James K. A. Smith.
A bunch of reading, but next i'm going to dive into The Existence of God by Richard Swinburne next.  And then into a few texts in relation to St. Augustine and philosophy.  With some additional reading in empirical theology in The Problem of Perception and the Experience of God: Toward an Empirical Theology by Sameer Yadav,

I've also read a bit of the Science of Discworld, a 1999 book by Terry Pratchett and popular science writers Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen.
